  • Cell Phone Locker Style – One of the first things a cell phone cabinet buyer should discern when looking into procuring cell phone cabinets is the style of the cabinet. Essentially, most suppliers carry two styles of cell phone lockers which most suppliers refer to as entry panel or master keyed phone cabinets. The distinct difference between the cell phone locker systems is the entry panel locker allows the supervisor access to all the guest compartments at one time by swinging open the face panel on the unit, whereas the master keyed system allows the supervisor/owner to access guest compartments one at a time by using a designated master key. There are advantages to both types’ cell phone cabinet systems. The major benefit of the entry panel phone locker is it allows the owner to access all of the compartments at one time which can be beneficial for distribution projects. The primary benefit the master keyed phone lockers provide is the fact that minimal clearance is necessary in front on the locker system because each door only opens versus the entire face panel.

  • Cell Pone Cabinet Finish – When shopping for cell phone storage lockers you will notice that there is an assortment of finishes available for buyers. Some cell phone locker suppliers charge up charges for certain finishes whereas others do not. Most cell phone cabinet suppliers offer only powder coated finishes, however you will see an occasional product supplier that offers some anodized finishes.

Recently, one manufacturer has made free standing enclosure available for select cell phone locker models in their product line.

  • Cell Phone Storage Locker Locking Device – Cell Phone cabinet visitor doors can come with a variety of different locking devices.
