New IT Room Desks - locked doors or no doors?
We're having an area of the school redeveloped into IT starting next month, and debating whether to request locked doors be put on the desks where the chassis goes. Of course, we know there are disadvantages, such as less heat can get out, difficult/impossible to use cd/usb and having to remember to bring a key!
One IT room we had done in 2005 was a basic desk design with just a holder underneath the desk for the chassis (the chassis is not fixed, just loose), but we find so much rubbish (food etc) getting stuffed in there and left for months sometimes! Not only that, but the machines get kicked, causing (minor) damage and cables coming loose, so the usual expected disadvantages of having them open.
Just wondering what others recommend, what others have or indeed, if others are in a similar position, what their plans are? Naturally, it will be cheaper to have them open, but with our current room, we are endlessly going in there to put cables back in and remove rubbish which noone else will! Is it worth pursuing getting them enclosed?
