DAY USE LOCKERS FOR SCIENCE LABS
Keeping personal belongings secure and away from fragile equipment
This state university’s strategic plan placed a renewed emphasis on science and engineering, and a new $15 million science building was crucial to plan’s success. The recently completed facility includes classrooms, collaboration areas, and state-of-the-art science labs that enable research in chemistry, engineering, and biology. When the design team planned the facility, they put a lot of thought into designing the labs, classrooms, and other areas throughout the building. Unfortunately, though, they didn’t think about storage for personal belongings. The lack of personal storage became an issue as soon as the laboratories opened, because food, drink, backpacks, bags, and even personal electronic devices were prohibited in the labs. As a result, faculty and staff had to leave their belongings in distant offices and students had to pile their items in the corridor outside the labs’ entrances.
Lockers provide convenient storage for the belongings of students, faculty, and staff.
In order to secure students’ and lab workers’ personal belongings and get them up off the floor, the facility manager called on the local Spacesaver consultant. The consultant visited the new building, took measurements, and designed Day Use Lockers to fit the available space. The manager opted for keypad locks with an integrated handle, and the design team chose high-pressure laminate (HPL) in the university’s colors to create a dramatic accent in the corridor.Now everyone in the labs can focus on their work without worrying about their belongings.
