Technical Construction Questions

Q: Who is responsible for locker installation?
A: Hollman can facilitate installation for you with one of our nation-wide network of installers, or this can be handled separately by a local contractor.
 
Q: What do I need to change for ADA equipped lockers?
A: ADA lockers are typically Type B lockers (double-tier) with specifically placed shelves, hardware, and ADA designated locks. For more information, please see our ADA locker page.
 
Q: How long is your lead time to produce lockers?
A: Certain seasons are busier than others, and because Hollman does all of our own manufacturing we can often work with you to meet tight deadlines, but a typical lead time is 4-8 weeks, depending on the project.
 
Q: What laminate brands do you offer?
A. Typically, Hollman uses Wilsonart or Formica. We can special order other products as needed for specific projects.
 
Q: Are you FSC Certified?
A. Yes. Hollman is FSC certified and can provide you the documentation to earn LEED points for your project with our product.
 
Q: Do you sell directly to General Contractors, or only through dealers?
A. Hollman is happy to sell directly to project owners or general contractors. Most of our projects are sold directly. Our internal submittals department will work with your team to facilitate the design phase of your project.
 
Q: Do you have a word version of your architectural specifications?
A. Yes. Our most frequently requested specs are included under Materials and Specs/Architectural Specs as PDF’s. Please contact us directly for the word versions of these or other specs.
 
Q: How tightly can we place lockers into a space?
A: Hollman recommends that you leave at least 2 inches on each end of a row of lockers to allow the end lockers to be easily accessed as well as to allow for any slight adjustment during installation. Typically, when lockers are installed, the very slight spaces between lockers add up over a long run to roughly 1/8 inch per 10 feet. This adjustment needs to be included in any spacing plans.
