Spacesaver created custom steel lockers for Central Park’s grounds and maintenance crews to keep clothing and outerwear dry and organized.

High-Quality Steel Lockers – Made in the USA

The Challenge
No Space to Dry Wet Outerwear

The grounds crews for the Central Park Conservancy in Manhattan work outdoors year-round, in all weather, to keep the park clean and safe for visitors. After their shifts, they return to their locker room with muddy boots, snowy hats, or wet raincoats. Their old lockers were too small to accommodate some of their outerwear, so they would spread items out to dry wherever they could. Coats and boots draped all over the room created an unsightly mess.

An architect for the Conservancy wondered if she could acquire sturdy, high-quality police-style lockers for the hard-working crews.

The Solution
High-Quality Steel Lockers with Perforated Doors

Grounds supervisor called in local Spacesaver consultants, who visited the locker room, assessed the space, and collaborated with Spacesaver’s engineering team to design custom FreeStyle® Personal Storage Lockers that were a perfect fit.

The new lockers are large enough to accommodate bulky boots and work clothes, and they’re designed to promote air-drying. Each locker has two doors and a divider down the middle; the left side of the locker is for clean and dry clothing, and the right side is for wet outerwear. The right door is heavily perforated to promote ventilation and a drip tray is fitted into the lower right side. A louvered lower drawer lined with a rubber mat holds wet boots.

Benches provide convenient seating.

The Result
A Clean, Organized Locker Room—and Grateful Employees

The crew appreciates the new lockers’ convenience, utility, and good looks. In fact, the lockers are working so well that plans are underway to install similar lockers in additional locations around the park.
