So, your locker room needs updating. In what kind of shape are the lockers?  

If your answer is “rusty, dented, noisy, smelly and dated,” chances are you’re already motivated to retire the metal and find a more resilient and attractive material. If so, read on to learn how your locker room can receive an instant makeover with durable, stylish and sustainable plastic lockers.

The beauty of Bradley’s Lenox® Solid plastic lockers is that they never need to be painted and will not rust or deteriorate in moist locker room environments. They are very easy to install and maintain – especially compared with metal lockers.

Cost Savings with Lenox Lockers

Plastic lockers may require additional investment up front, but significant savings on repairs and maintenance will make up the difference over Lenox Lockers’ 20-year life cycle.

Tough as milk jugs: HDPE solid plastic

Unlike metal, Lenox Lockers are constructed from durable and corrosion-proof
high-density polyethylene (HDPE) material – the same sturdy material used in plastic milk containers – and will not rust or dent. On average, each Lenox Locker keeps more than 500 milk jugs out of landfills!

Lenox Lockers are made from 30% pre-consumer content, 100% pre-consumer content or 100% post-consumer content.
