Locker Locks Designer – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
One thing to consider, when designing a locker room, is whether locker locks are a necessity. Not every
locker requires a locker lock, and it’s important to know whether the lockers you’re ordering will require
locks before you decide on a design. Locks are an integral part of what makes ‘lockers’ actually function,
and choosing the right lock will have a lot to do with how smoothly users can interact with their lockers.
There are several different types of locks, all sold by two major sources in the lock industry; Master Lock
and Zephyr Lock.
Your choice of door latch will ultimately effect which lock options you have available that allow your
locker to securely close. Qi Locks offer recommendations for matching locker to latch but remember to
always consult your manufacturer when making the final decisions.
There are different types of locks:
Padlock -Master Lock
The U-shaped ‘shackle’ of this lock makes this padlock the most versatile since it's interchangeable with
every type of latch in the industry. This lock is also one of the least expensive options and still comes
with five different combination choices. If you’re concerned about security, padlocks are a natural
solution for any latch since only bolt cutters could conceivably remove them. While built-in locks are
rated as some of the most secure and convenient to use, they may never be quite as secure as a heavy
duty padlock like this one. Qi Locks offers Padlocks Designer in London.
Often used for ADA, digital locks don’t require pinching and turning, and users can simply punch in a
number Master Lock Bluetooth Padlocksequence. These locks tend to run on the more expensive side
but have recently started to come down in price.
Day use locks, which reset at the end of each day, would allow users to choose each locker as needed
and select their own code. Biometric locks are another possible option in the near future, requiring a
unique fingerprint for entry. Other locks connect to mobile phones, sending messages to unlock lockers.
For now, these are mostly too expensive for schools, but in the future, who knows how we will gain
access to our homes, cars, and yes, our lockers.
TOP LOCK FEATURES
Some of the unique locking features that were most important were:
ADA Compatibility -- We found that with the digital keypad lock, the ADA options weren’t
recommended, as they were not made as well and were prone to breaking. “Five percent of locks must
be ADA compliant, so this is an important function, and it was surprising to us how many manufacturers
had poor options,” Lucy said.
“The lock that we finally chose had incorporated an option that was just as functional for the ADA
compatible as the traditional version.”
Easy Power Options -- “We wanted long battery use or an easy-to-hardwire lock,” Lucy shared. You
don’t want the locks failing in the middle of the testing day. We chose one with a very common battery
that could be found at any store, and which had a backup system to open it up should the battery fail.”
Advanced Options -- Some of the more advanced locks that Lucy and her firm did not choose this time
were still very promising. Ones that could incorporate information from the student ID card, for
instance, used that data to open the locker and remember which one had been selected. Rather than
requiring students to remember a combination right before a big test—or even which locker held their
possessions—these options connected student to locker more seamlessly.
