Link 51 has launched a pre-summer marketing campaign to highlight the safety and storage benefits of installing lockers in primary schools.
To kick start the Pegs v Lockers campaign, Link 51 carried out an online poll with the UK’s primary schools to understand their perceptions of lockers and to establish the kinds of storage that schools use.
“The results we’re really interesting,” said Danielle Hassall, Link 51 Marketing Manager. “Sixty-one per cent of respondents said they thought lockers would take up more room than coat pegs. This is a common misconception because lockers actually provide more storage in a smaller space than pegs.”
In a two-metre length, which would accommodate 12 coat pegs, 18 locker compartments can be fitted, which means schools can either benefit from either additional storage for six more pupils or reduce the amount of space required.
As part of the campaign, which begins this month (May 2014), Link 51has also launched a national competition for one school to win £2,000 towards a locker installation.
Danielle added: “We are excited to launch this awareness campaign and are looking forward to giving one school the opportunity to win £2,000 towards transforming their school this summer.”
Throughout May and June, Link 51will also be tweeting from its @SchoolLockersUK account using the hashtag #pegsvlockers, and will update its Facebook account Facebook.com/SchoollockersUK to raise awareness about the benefits of replacing pegs with lockers.
