Furnishing your facility’s sleeping quarters doesn’t end once you’ve got the beds in place. You also need a way to meet your guests’ storage needs. Dressers provide enough room for clothes, but you need something suitable for the rest of their personal belongings.
One popular solution involves adding storage space under the beds, which allows you to better meet your guests’ needs and take advantage of empty spaces that would otherwise go to waste.
Who Should Invest in Lockable Under Bed Storage?
If you operate or manage any type of commercial living facility, lockable under bed storage is a good idea. Such facilities include the following:
- College dorms
- Employee housing
- Summer camps
- Residential treatment centers
- Boarding schools
- Fire stations
These establishments must be able to accommodate several people and are usually tight on space, so compact, under bed storage is vital.
4 Benefits of Benefits of ESS Universal’s Lockable Under Bed Storage Lockers
ESS Universal’s Under Bed Storage Lockers provide several benefits that make them a practical solution for commercial settings. Each ESS Universal bunk bed can fit up to two of these storage lockers underneath, giving you the following benefits:
1. Effortless Organization
With multiple people living in one place, it doesn’t take much for the area to become busy and cluttered, and that is especially true when everyone doesn’t have a dedicated space for their belongings. Under bed storage lockers make keeping the space organized and tidy easier. Instead of having random belongings strewn about, the lockers give everything a place to go and help restore a sense of calmness.
2. Easy Access to Belongings
In addition to storing belongings, lockable under bed storage solutions from ESS Universal also provide occupants with easy access to their belongings. Instead of being crammed in a closet across the room, your occupants’ belongings will always be a few feet away.
With four wheels on each locker, it effortlessly glides out from under the bed and back into place with minimal effort and noise. Furthermore, the lockers feature a pneumatic arm built into the lid that makes it easy to open and close the lockers. Occupants won’t have to worry about struggling to hold it open while retrieving their items or accidentally slamming it shut and disturbing their fellow sleepers.
3. Improved Security
Whenever multiple people share a space, security is always a point of concern. Storage solutions that don’t provide any locking mechanisms won’t give guests or occupants the peace of mind they deserve. ESS Universal’s Under Bed Storage Lockers are designed to accommodate padlocks and combination locks, offering your guests an additional layer of security and helping keep their belongings safe.
4. Sturdy Construction
Perhaps the biggest benefit of the lockable under bed storage lockers available from ESS Universal is their sturdy, durable construction. Each locker features a 24.5″ x 31.5″ x 12.25″ wire cage made from high-quality, heavy-duty steel, including a rigid frame, which allows them to withstand daily use for years without degrading in form or function. That is especially important in commercial settings where tight budgets might not allow frequent replacements.
Given their wireframe nature, the lockers also allow plenty of air to flow in and out of the locker as well, preventing unpleasant odors from building up or moisture from getting trapped and causing mildew to develop.
Furnish Your Facility with Ease
No matter the facility you run, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed when tasked with creating a safe, comfortable, and functional sleeping area for your guests. That said, you can make it easier by breaking it up rather than tackling everything all at once. It’s a good idea to start by choosing the right beds and then designing the rest of the space around them.
