Tiers: may be specified as single-tier (full height), two-tier, three-tier, etc., meaning that the lockers are stacked on top of each other in layers two high, three high, etc. Tiers are commonly up to eight high; on occasion, even more tiers may be found, in the case of very small lockers for such purposes as storing laptop computers. The most common numbers of tiers found in lockers are, in order, one, two, and four; three-tier lockers are rather less common, and other numbers such as five, six, or eight even less common still - seven almost non-existent. Since locker cabinets are most commonly 6 feet (182.9 cm.) high (although there are exceptions), the height of individual lockers varies according to how many tiers are accommodated within the cabinet. The height of individual lockers is usually approximately 6 feet (182.9 cm.) divided by the number of tiers, so that two-tier lockers are about 3 feet (91.4 cm.) high, three-tier lockers 2 feet (61 cm.) high, four-tier lockers 1.5 feet (45.7 cm.) high, and so on. Standard features often vary according to the number of tiers: single-tier lockers usually include a shelf about a foot (roughly 30 cm.) from the top, and a hanging rail (sometimes with one or two hooks) immediately underneath that, at the top of the large compartment beneath the shelf; two- or three-tier lockers usually lack the shelf, but include the hanging rail; lockers with four or more tiers usually have none of these fittings, but consist of just the bare compartment.
Steel thickness: lockers tend to be made from a standard thickness of steel, which is commonly 0.8 mm. thick; but heavy-duty or high-security lockers are offered as a standard option by some manufacturers, or may be available on special order. A typical locker of this sort may be constructed from steel 1.2 mm. thick, for example, and is usually fitted with three-point locking, regardless of the number of tiers.
Perforated lockers are similar to the standard types of locker, but the door and walls are made largely or entirely of perforated steel, with hundreds of holes creating a strong mesh arranged in a diagonal pattern. This is used where good ventilation is required, or where, for security reasons, it is necessary that the contents can be examined visually while the doors are locked.
Your industrial-style loft melds hardwood floors, exposed duct work, and stainless steel appliances beautifully, but the struggle is creating a cohesive design with your decor. Mix new and old, cold metal and warm woods to fit this style, and start with a signature piece, such as used school lockers. These lockers are industrial in nature, and whether the metal is flawlessly finished in a bright color or boasts naturally-occurring rust from years of neglect, they fit in with this design style. Used school lockers also offer a functional storage space in various sizes, with lockers as small as 12 inches by 12 inches, and as large as 30 inches by 66 inches. Once you decide on your lockers, keep your storage solution as functional as possible with a school locker organizer to make the most of the space with hanging shelves or small magnetic holders. School locker magnets can be that extra little space you need to hold pens, business cards, reminder lists, and other small items. Finding the right design pieces for your industrial-style loft can be somewhat difficult, but the sellers on eBay have you covered with a large selection of vintage items like school lockers.
There is an honest way for supporters of a nationwide popular vote to eject the Electoral College, and that is to take away its accreditation by way of a constitutional amendment to repeal it. But that would take 2/3 of both houses of Congress and 3/4 of the states, and apparently that task gives opponents of the Electoral College the vapors.Much easier, they think, to perform an end-run on the US Constitution's amendment process through the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.Interstate compacts are for regional cooperation in governing the use of river water, for example, or in agreeing that if a nurse in one state passes that state's licensing requirements, other states will accept that nurse's license to practice.Interstate compacts are not for the purpose of subverting the US Constitution.I hate the Electoral College, it's antiquated and obsolete, in my opinion. But I don't support the NPVIC.If people think our politics are divisive now, just wait to see what happens if the NPVIC is adopted by 270 electoral votes' worth of states.So, call Governor Polis' office at 303-866-2471 and tell him to veto senate bill 19-042, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Be sure to mention the bill number! I do, however, like the idea of proportional electoral votes from each state. Winner-take-all is nowhere mentioned in any form in the US Constitution. Maine and Nebraska have the right idea.
Lockers are usually physically joined together side by side in banks, and are commonly made from steel, although wood, laminate, and plastic are other materials sometimes found. Steel lockers which are banked together share side walls, and are constructed by starting with a complete locker; further lockers may then be adding by constructing the floor, roof, rear wall, door, and just one extra side wall, the existing side wall of the previous locker serving as the other side wall of the new one. The walls, floors, and roof of lockers may be either riveted together (the more traditional method) or, more recently, welded together.
