Storage equipment specialist Action Storage has announced a joint venture with Canopies UK to supply and install its eXtreme Plastic Lockers™ in schools, colleges and other organisations.

In the partnership, Action Storage will supply customers with its weatherproof, vandal resistant eXtreme® Lockers and Canopies UK will supply cantilever style canopies to provide protection from the rain. Action Storage's eXtreme® Lockers offer many unique benefits over conventional metal lockers. Made from hardwearing polyethylene plastic, they can be stacked outdoors under cover without the risk of them rusting.

This offers valuable space savings benefits, and makes them especially popular with schools and colleges because it enables them to free up space in corridors and classrooms. Ordinarily, stacking lockers outdoors would pose an increased risk of vandalism and theft. The eXtreme® Lockers, however, are exceptionally durable. Their tough hinges are able to resist up to 3200 N (327 kg) of pressure without breaking, which is 7 times the recommended FIRA standard, and can resist break in attempts with a sledge hammer.

EXtreme® Lockers also offer a higher level of hygiene compared to metal lockers. Being waterproof, they can be sprayed clean with a high pressure hose and simply left to dry. Drainage holes in the base allow water to seep through, whilst sloping roofs prevent the accumulation of rubbish on the tops. Whilst eXtreme® Lockers are resistant to the rain, pupils and staff aren't. Consequently, Action Storage has partnered with Canopies UK to provide cantilever style canopies to protect people when they're retrieving belongings from the lockers.

Canopies UK is the country's leading supplier of canopies to schools, colleges, hospitals and buildings. Its cantilever designs require no supporting posts or pillars or special foundations. This enables them to be installed in less than 1 day.

Canopies UK also supply a wide range of commercial shelters, including Cantiports, awnings, domestic door canopies and carports.
