NEW: EU Standard Fire Proof Lockers

NEW: EU Standard Fire Proof Lockers

Probe are a famous and much loved favourite in the locker industry. Their ability to manufacture high quality, long lasting lockers whilst keeping prices low is what sets them apart from other manufacturers.

And now, they have outdone themselves again. All of the steel lockers branded Probe on our website are now Fire Zero tested and certified.

What does this mean?

To cut a long story short, it means that each of our Probe steel lockers are non-combustible meaning they won’t burn during a fire. Although steel is not known for being highly combustible, Probe steel lockers are the only ones in the market to have been tested and certified to Fire Zero standards.

Currently, Probe steel lockers are the only brand to have achieved the title of being tested and approved within the European Standard – EN 13501-1: 2007 +A1 2009 in relation to fire performance.

To many of us this will just look like a bunch on random letters and numbers. However, this qualification is extremely important, particularly when lockers are being used in public places. Not only does this rating mean the lockers themselves don’t burn, it also means they will not increase or sustain the spread of any fire within their proximity.
