HDPE lockers and partitions deliver attractive durability to new athletic complex.
The grand opening of the state-of-the-art Kevin P. Quinn, S.J., Athletics Campus recently highlighted the latest phase of the Univ. of Scranton’s efforts to improve student athlete experiences, beautify the neighborhood, and complement the revitalization efforts in South Scranton, PA.
Named after the Jesuit college’s 25th president, the $14-million sports complex was designed to serve as the school’s home field for soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, baseball, and softball. In addition to three NCAA-regulation all-purpose turf fields, the newly launched facility includes bleacher seating, a 4,000-sq.-ft. field house with team locker rooms and a training room, parking, a community basketball court, and a children’s play area.
Designed with a pragmatic style, coupled with long-lasting functionality, the new field house was also developed to serve as the central hub for all of the different playing fields. Among its many amenities are five locker rooms featuring Tufftec lockers and Hiny Hiders restroom partitions, manufactured by Scranton Products, Scranton, PA.
The locker non-porous surfaces make them easy to clean and resistant to bacteria, odors, mold, and mildew. The partitions offer the same advantages and are also available in a variety of colors and styles that never rust or need painting. In addition, they are resistant to dents, scratches, graffiti, corrosion, mildew, and moisture.
Designers also took advantage of the company’s customer-service department to include the university’s squib “S” logo and purple signature color in the locker design. These custom features are popular because they instill school pride.
If cleaned and maintained properly, HDPE partitions and lockers reduce long-term costs. Mild stains and general soiling are often removed with a mild cleaner and water. Since plastic is a solid composite, it also maintains a property of impermeability that does not allow them to retain and/or absorb water. This makes the HDPE products ideal for power-washing and hose-down cleaning.
