If there was the option to purchase fireproof locker as opposed to not, would there be a choice at all? Probe Steel Lockers now have ‘Fire Rated’ status; the first in the whole of the UK, and potentially further afield in Europe. The best thing about a fire rated locker is that it won’t set you back a single penny as opposed to the pre-fireproof locker days.
The exact of regulation(s) the probe lockers tested in compliance is; EN 13501-1: 2007 + A1: 2009.
Available in one, two, three, four, five, six, eight and sixteen door lockers; each fire rated locker is powder coated in a choice of: Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, White and Silver doors. In addition to this an anti-bacterial coat which is added provides worthwhile protection against the likes of E-Coli, MRSA, Moulds and Fungi.
The lockers are perfect for schools, hospitals, offices, hotels etc. even without the fire resistant properties, due to the hygienic benefits which can’t be overlooked. Therefore when you add in the fact that they won’t increase or sustain fire production, or combust under these conditions, it’s a no-brainer. They meet all the relevant safety requirements expected of lockers positioned within a school, and are ideal for contractors having to adhere to Building Bulletin 100: Design for fire safety in schools.
One last time, let us reiterate that although they are now fire rated; the Probe FireZero Lockers won’t:
A) Cost more than they did prior to certification
B) Increase in lead time
C) Change specifications; colours, locks, construction
They will however:
1) Provide even better value for money
2) Be the perfect option for use in schools and other public areas
3) Stand out as the only locker range in the UK to have this sought after certification
