Is DeBourgh Open During the COVID-19 Pandemic?

DeBourgh is currently open and operational for your immediate needs. We are an essential business, supplying needed storage to the federal government, first responders on the front lines of this crisis, and medical professionals doing everything they can to help contain the spread of this terrible virus. As a family-owned company since 1909, ensuring our people and our products are safe is just a part of how we go about business. In accordance with state and federal health orders, DeBourgh has ensured safe distances can be maintained at our manufacturing facility at all times. To accommodate this, our office staff has primarily worked from home to create safe spaces for all of our hands-on Team Members.

How Will Lockers Change in a Post-COVID World?

Traditional lockers are high contact items in a space. If you are using traditional lockers, we recommend that you clean them regularly with dish soap and water only. Harsh solvents can have a negative impact on your finish and are not covered by warranty. This crisis has accelerated the trend for contactless lockers where users may present a credential and use a locker for a short period of time and can be controlled remotely, opened regularly for cleaning, and improve security. Anti-biological coatings also have become more frequently requested. These coatings help inhibit biological material on surfaces such as DeBourgh lockers. You can read more about these coatings here. Surely, more innovations will come from this global crisis. To keep up with those innovations and how they can improve the storage in your facility, contact us at


Take care of yourself and your loved ones. This pandemic is hard on all of us and we will get through this together. Check regularly the guidance by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization  (WHO). Just because you don’t have COVID-19 does not mean you are not suffering. If you need mental health resources during this time, contact your local mental health facilities, or contact The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). We wish you good health, and see you soon.
