School lockers come in a variety of styles and serve different functions to meet the unique needs of each educational facility.
From providing space for students’ belongings to creating a secure location for cell phones, school lockers are essential pieces of furniture within an educational facility. Whether you are replacing current lockers or need them for a new space, there are several types of lockers from which to choose. As you start to determine which type of locker will work best for your space, you should first consider the locker’s function and your preferred material.

Commercial lockers used in schools also come in a variety of materials. Here are some of the most common types of materials.

- Wood lockers are aesthetically pleasing but are not water resistant like other options.
- Laminate lockers combine wood and plastic lockers; a plastic laminate exterior covers a wooden interior.
