Welcome to the Jungle: Scranton Products Revolutionizes School Storage With New Duralife® HDPE, Fire-Rated Lockers
SCRANTON, Pa., Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — It can seem like a jungle in school hallways, with kids slamming, swinging and sounding like a herd of elephants–releasing all that pent up energy on their poor lockers! Welcome to the jungle says Scranton Products, as they introduce Duralife® Lockers, the only line of solid HDPE lockers that are fully fire-rated (compliant with NFPA 286) as well as being GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certified(SM) for improved indoor air quality. With extensive advantages over metal lockers, Duralife features the strength and durability to stand up to the bombardment of everyday school use with low maintenance at a comparable cost. Duralife Locker doors also feature a quieter close, reducing noise levels by three times that of metal lockers.
“Because Duralife Lockers are made with HDPE, they are a stylish, economical alternative to metal,” said Don Wharton, President of Scranton Products. “With the multitude of durable, easy care features, the payback is realized in just a few short years.”
American-made Duralife Lockers are available in several design options and 15 beautiful colors, with a color-throughout formula that resists scratching. Custom color options are also available. With a 6-point latch mechanism and full length anodized steel hinges for exceptional strength, Duralife Lockers are impact and dent resistant. In fact, in ASTM impact testing, they were shown to have 59 times the impact resistance of metal. They will not rust, corrode or delaminate and are covered by a full 15-year warranty.
HDPE is naturally resistant to bacteria, odors, mold and mildew and the non-porous surface is very easy to clean. Graffiti wipes off easily with most non-abrasive cleaners and stickers and contact paper are easily removed. The lockers can also be power washed and steam cleaned without the worry of rust.
In addition to meeting GREENGUARD Children & Schools air quality standards, Duralife Lockers also contribute to a project’s LEED certification. They are made with recycled materials and are 100% recyclable. And, since they do not require painting, there are no VOCs.
Duralife Lockers perform far beyond metal and will stand up to the stampede! For more information about Duralife Lockers, visit the newly enhanced Scranton Products website, at www.scrantonproducts.com.
