Lockers Sizes for changing rooms


Locker Sizes

The total height of a standard locker is usually 1800mm. The standard width is 300mm. It is recommended that a proportion of lockers are 400mm to accommodate larger sports bags. The depth of the lockers can vary, but is usually between 450mm – 600mm.

Locker Provison

10% of the lockers should be full-height for the storage of mobility aids. Half-height lockers are the most common size. 50 – 70% of the lockers should be half-height. The rest of the lockers can be quarter or third height depending on the need of the users.

Locker Design

Locks and lockers should have clearly visible and embossed numbers that can be read by sight or touch. Where there are large banks of lockers some form of orientation assistance should be given, for example by using very strong colour contrasts or using symbols.
