For it’s renovation efforts, the Chicago Park District sought out a durable, yet attractive locker solution that would give the facilities a more modern look and protect patrons’ belongings. Park District wanted a solution that would last for years and one that they wouldn’t have to replace. Bradley Lenox® Lockers were the perfect fit for the park.The Lenox® Lockers have an ergonomic, ADA-compliant handle which operates less than five pound of force. The handle is secured through the door latch bar with stainless steel security screws. The one-piece locker box is designed to be rigid and secure. According to Anthony Hayes, project manager in facility management for Chicago park District, “Bradley’s plastic lockers have been a money saver for the district, and we have not had any maintenance problems. We’re very pleased with them.”
