Bank size: It does not necessarily refer to the total number of compartments, but rather the number of compartments wide the entire cabinet is. So a bank of three may contain six lockers, for example, if they are two-tier lockers. In short, the total number of lockers is the bank size multiplied by the number of tiers. Sometimes the term "bay" is used instead of "bank", although "bank" appears to be the more standard term; on other occasions, "bay" refers to a single locker width within a bank, including all tiers of locker directly on top of each other.
When it comes to adventurous living, Denver ranks as one of the most outdoorsy cities in the United States. Whether it’s hiking up mountains or skating down the winding mountain-roads in nearby Boulder, Denver is a great place to be outdoors and enjoy that adrenalin rush. So naturally, if you have a long stopover in Denver, or quite a bit of time on your hands before that big conference, you’ll need to find Denver luggage storage so you can make the best of it.
Locker doors usually have some kind of ventilation to provide for the flow of air to aid in cleanliness. These vents usually take the form of a series of horizontal angled slats at the top and bottom of the door, although sometimes parallel rows of small square or rectangular holes are found instead, running up and down the door. Less often, the side or rear walls may also have similar ventilation.

As stated above, many of our discount lockers are actually still brand new. Each locker description includes whether the locker is new overstock, surplus, or a scratch/dent model to help you make the best decision possible. Scratches and dents are purely cosmetic in nature, the functionality and durability of the locker is never compromised, but we give a discount to make up for any minor imperfections. Overstocks and surplus are typically styles/colors that have been discontinued. They are still brand new, never used, but with a discount so we can make room for new inventory. Styles range from single tier lockers with one door to box lockers with up to 6 doors on one locker frame.
On one of our trips, (Honolulu, I think) there was a business which had vans that would meet you at the airport outside baggage claim and store your luggage in the van. Then when you were finished sightseeing, you called the driver to arrange a meeting place at the airport to pick up your bags and head back into the airport for departure. I was a little leery of this arrangement, but several Trip Advisor folks had used it and gave it a thumbs up, so we tried it and it worked great. I've often wondered if something like that would work at DIA.
In schools without lockers, students are sometimes provided with two complete sets of textbooks, one set being kept at school for use in class, and the other being kept at home for referring to for homework, thus limiting the amount of heavy carrying that would otherwise be required without having lockers to store them in between classes. However, research has shown an increase in the incidence of back injuries in some students, which has been directly attributed to the lack of lockers for storing books in, thus forcing students to spend more time carrying heavy loads of books in backpacks.
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.
