Hollman, the largest locker manufacturer in the country, is now bringing their forty years of locker-building experience to the Phenolic Locker market. Phenolic Lockers are typically called for in projects including aquatic centers and recreation centers – locations where rugged use and high levels of moisture are anticipated. Hollman takes this a step further, introducing Phenolic Lockers that are as attractive as they are strong.
“If we do anything, we just want to do it better. When we design something, we always do it with the customer in mind. This market demands durability, but they still want lockers to look attractive,” said Sue Hwang, Hollman’s Executive Vice President.
Hollman has spent a year of research and development, resulting in Phenolic Lockers that exceed the industry standard for durability, but with some important key aesthetic differences. The Hollman line uses concealed hinges with no hardware visible on the front of the locker. Phenolic is a solid product so that door edges are not covered. Hollman utilizes a blunt edge cut to minimize the contrast from the inner core. (Previous standard was to use rounded edges which showed as black stripes between each locker.) To accentuate the smooth finish of their Phenolic Lockers, Hollman has drawn on their unique position as the nation’s largest locker manufacturer to select a line of phenolic colors and patterns that represents emerging industry design trends from across the locker industry.
All Hollman lockers are built to order at their 300,000 square foot manufacturing plant in Irving, Texas, USA. Production is now underway on phenolic, as well as their other lines including wood, laminate, glass, and solid surface lockers.
