Are lockers the new must-have for major corporations?

Lockers are getting higher in demand as employers everywhere prepare for, and facilitate, the ongoing return to the workplace. This is according to Robin Bayliss, Group Sales Director at Bisley.

Lockers have become a focus for organisations who are looking to provide their employees with secure spaces in which to store personal belongings as they look to maintain a cleaner, more hygienic, and streamlined workspaces in a pandemic afflicted world.

This is particularly relevant for those organisations adopting hybrid working policies, clean desk hot desking policies, or where shift patterns have been introduced to maintain a manageable level of office footfall.

Essentially, the key is to reduce the amount of ‘stuff’ in a workplace, and that’s where lockers come into play.

Robin said, “the locker concept is hardly a new one. Lots of larger organisations have been using them for years, or even decades. In many sectors, they are a no-brainer. But we are now seeing lockers being adopted by smaller organisations and in different sectors.

“And vitally, we are also seeing lockers being fully integrated into office design, playing an important role in workplace aesthetics. This is a particularly exciting concept in new builds, or major refits, where lockers can be fully considered into design plans from the ground up, as not only a storage system but also a tool for zoning and space division.”

Naturally, the 2022 locker is very different to the kind of locker you’ll find at your local leisure centre. These new-gen versions utilise the latest smart locking software, including networked and hardwired locks, making personal storage and facility management simpler and safer.

Take wireless smart locks as an example. Wirelessly connected for seamless integration, the latest smart locking technology allows management to remotely assign and manage users, access audit and analytics reports, schedule auto lock/unlock and receive instant alarm alerts. We recommend them for premium storage ranges for optimum security.

Robin added, “although as exciting as all these developments are in the world of lockers, I should also point out that the classic steel, key and combination lock locker still continues to be a top seller and is likely to always remain a popular choice for organisations. Fortunately, there are options for everyone.

“As organisations look to rethink workspaces in a post-pandemic world, it’s likely that we’ll see lockers become a mainstay of office design.”
