Your industrial-style loft melds hardwood floors, exposed duct work, and stainless steel appliances beautifully, but the struggle is creating a cohesive design with your decor. Mix new and old, cold metal and warm woods to fit this style, and start with a signature piece, such as used school lockers. These lockers are industrial in nature, and whether the metal is flawlessly finished in a bright color or boasts naturally-occurring rust from years of neglect, they fit in with this design style. Used school lockers also offer a functional storage space in various sizes, with lockers as small as 12 inches by 12 inches, and as large as 30 inches by 66 inches. Once you decide on your lockers, keep your storage solution as functional as possible with a school locker organizer to make the most of the space with hanging shelves or small magnetic holders. School locker magnets can be that extra little space you need to hold pens, business cards, reminder lists, and other small items. Finding the right design pieces for your industrial-style loft can be somewhat difficult, but the sellers on eBay have you covered with a large selection of vintage items like school lockers.

Lockers are usually physically joined together side by side in banks, and are commonly made from steel, although wood, laminate, and plastic are other materials sometimes found. Steel lockers which are banked together share side walls, and are constructed by starting with a complete locker; further lockers may then be adding by constructing the floor, roof, rear wall, door, and just one extra side wall, the existing side wall of the previous locker serving as the other side wall of the new one. The walls, floors, and roof of lockers may be either riveted together (the more traditional method) or, more recently, welded together.

Laundry lockers are used in places like hospitals and food-processing workplaces where uniforms have to be collected, laundered, then returned to their owners. The locker cabinet contains a number of very narrow lockers, each of whose doors is keyed using a key held by the owner, so that they have access only to their own locker; but the entire array of doors is embedded in a much larger door covering the entire front of the cabinet. Opening this opens all the lockers simultaneously, and requires the use of a master key which is held by whoever collects items deposited in lockers, for laundering, then returned in the same way, after which they items are accessible to owners using their individual small doors.
Locking options: various types of key locking or padlocking facility are available now. Key locking options include flush locks, cam locks, or locks incorporated into a rotating handle; padlocking facilities may be a simple hasp and staple, or else a padlocking hole may be included in a handle, often called a latchlock. More modern designs include keyless operation, either by coin deposit (which may or may not be returned when use of the locker terminates), or by using electronic keypads to enter passwords for later reopening the locker. Some older lockers used a drop-latch which was incorporated into the door handle, and slid up and down and could be padlocked at the bottom in the "down" position, but these are less used now. Three-point locking is not possible with this type of latch, because it needs to be operated by means of a latch that rotates rather than slides up and down; so this drop-latch is probably a less secure locking option, which may be why it is little used nowadays. Prefect Combination locks are very popular in school lockers used in the UK due to their ease of use and the time and cost saved in the removal of locker keys.
