School Pool lockers

Spending time in a pool is a fun and refreshing way to stay active. Whether for exercise, relaxation, or simply to cool off on a hot day, swimming is a great way to spend time with friends and family. However, with the increasing popularity of public pools and water parks, there is a need for secure storage solutions for personal belongings. Plastic lockers offer excellent resistance to water and UV sun damage, making them a perfect choice for moisture-prone areas such as swimming pools. 

Your patrons need a place to store towels, swimwear, and personal items while enjoying the pool, and our plastic lockers provide a convenient and secure storage solution. With various sizes and configurations available, you can customise swimming pool lockers to fit your specific needs.

Drawbacks of Using Metal or Wood Lockers in Swimming Pools

Traditional metal or wood lockers are unsuitable for use around swimming pools or highly humid areas. Here’s why:

  • Rust and Decay: Metal lockers are prone to rust and corrosion from prolonged contact with moisture. This affects their structural integrity and leads to staining and potential damage to users’ belongings. Wood lockers absorb moisture, resulting in warping and eventual decay. This rust and decay affects the locker’s functionality and detracts from the overall aesthetics of the pool area.
  • Mould and Mildew Growth: Wood’s tendency to retain moisture creates an inviting environment for mould and mildew, which can pose a potential health risk. While metal lockers might not directly foster mould growth, their deterioration due to rust can indirectly contribute to unsanitary conditions.
  • Increased Maintenance Costs: The inevitability of rust in metal lockers and decay in wooden ones leads to frequent replacements or repair needs, driving up long-term costs and effort for maintenance. This can be a significant burden for pool facilities with high operating costs.
  • Damage to User Belongings: Using these traditional lockers can damage user’s belongings, such as electronics, books, and clothing. Rust from metal lockers can easily transfer onto items stored inside, causing permanent stains or corrosion. Meanwhile, wooden lockers can splinter or break, potentially damaging valuable items inside.

The Role of Plastic Lockers in Secure Storage

Made from high-quality plastic, these lockers offer a durable and rust-free alternative to traditional metal or wooden lockers when placed near water or in humid environments. Here’s why plastic lockers stand out: 

  • Durability in Humid Environments: 

Plastic lockers protect stored items in high humidity and damp environments, where traditional metal lockers fail to perform. Engineered from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), these lockers resist damage from rust, corrosion, and the warping effects of moisture, ensuring longevity that withstands the test of time and climate. This durability makes these lockers more cost-effective, reducing the need for frequent replacements and maintenance.

  • Hygienic Benefits: 

Swimming pools are hubs of communal activity, where hygiene is crucial in safeguarding health. Plastic lockers, with their non-porous surfaces, offer an easy-to-clean solution that inhibits the growth of mould, mildew, and bacteria. A simple wipe-down with disinfectant keeps these lockers sanitised, promoting a healthier environment for swimmers and staff.

  • Customisation and Aesthetic Appeal: 

Modern plastic lockers are available in a wide range of colours and finishes to make your swimming pool locker room aesthetically pleasing. This versatility ensures practicality is not sacrificed to visual appeal, allowing facilities to create welcoming and personalised spaces that enhance the overall user experience.

  • Lightweight Yet Secure: 

Plastic lockers are more lightweight than metal or wood lockers, making them easier to install and move around if necessary. They have robust locking mechanisms and offer a safe haven for personal belongings, from casual swimmers’ essentials to professional athletes’ gear. Lightweight yet secure, plastic lockers are the perfect choice for any swimming pool environment.

  • Recyclable Option: 

Made from HDPE plastic, these lockers are durable, long-lasting, and 100% recyclable to make other plastic products. With this ability to repurpose, they are a sustainable option for swimming pool facilities looking to reduce their carbon footprint.

Quick Maintenance Tips

  • Regularly clean with mild soap and water to prevent mould.
  • Adhere to the manufacturer’s weight limit recommendations to prevent doors from sagging or structural damage.
  • Regularly inspect for any loose or damaged components and replace them as necessary.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals on the lockers as they can cause damage to the plastic material.
