Republic has been a leading manufacturer of quality steel lockers in the USA since 1930. You can find our metal lockers in schools, locker rooms, gyms, and businesses all across the country. Republic PDQ lockers are proven to be easier to install and they are more trouble-free than any other locker on the market.
What Are PDQ Lockers?
Our PDQ lockers are our standard steel lockers, available in 10 door and frame colors, shipped to you faster than our made to order lockers. They feature reliable latching systems and a premium finish. We keep our most popular sizes available in both 1-wide and 3-wide models. While the doors and frames come in a color of your choice, the body parts will be in our Classic Tan finish. The powder coat paint finish will help protect your metal school lockers from everyday use. Please limit your PDQ locker order to only one finish choice to ensure we can get them to you quick.
Republic makes our PDQ lockers from cold-rolled steel. The doors are either 16-gauge or 18-gauge steel depending on the size. All the locker frames are 16-gauge steel while the body parts are 24-gauge steel. We lap and weld the frame corners for strength and durability. Republic standard school lockers come with louvers on the doors for ventilation. 6-inch-high legs come standard on these metal lockers. They provide toe room below the door.
Sizes and Tiers
Republic PDQ lockers are available in multiple widths and depths. Our single, double, and triple tier lockers come with a recessed handle with plastic-protected lifting trigger. Lockers with a recessed lift handle have a lockbar latch system to ensure maximum security. The six tier box lockers have a finger operated trigger. Both styles of handle will accept a user provided padlock for added security. Need help planning your locker project? A Republic Distributor can work with you to figure out the right size and tier of standard metal lockers to meet your project needs.
Assembly and Installation
You can order your new PDQ lockers either unassembled or assembled. Putting these lockers together in the field is easy using nuts and bolts. You can also have Republic professionally assemble your new lockers before shipping them. We will use pop rivets instead of nuts and bolts for a strong and durable assembly. When installing your Republic lockers, make sure that they are properly anchored to either the wall or floor or both if possible. We have foot anchors available to provide a surface for anchoring a locker with legs like these school storage lockers.
Locks and Accessories
Republic has different built-in lock options available for our PDQ lockers. Upgrade your lockers with either combination or key locks. We have a full selection of sloped tops and closed bases to help give your lockers a finished look. Finally, don’t forget to add a Republic number plate. We punch the locker doors so you can easily attach the plate. Number plates help people identify and find their lockers.
