Case study: Better Gym, North Greenwich

Working to the specification of Birmingham-based architects Bignell Shacklady Ewing, Prospec installed its Cabrillant 600 cubicles and glass lockers at the Better Gym in North Greenwich.

The installation was done in a deep purple and white colour scheme to create a distinctive feel of modern opulence.

“Better Gym North Greenwich is one of London’s most advanced gyms, with state-of-the-art fitness technology”

Better Gym North Greenwich is one of London’s most advanced gyms, with state-of-the-art fitness technology. From the moment members walk through the door, the Technogym MyWellness Key provides access to the facility, touch screen equipment and the Marathon lockers.

The installation has an OTS locking system which operates on Mifare 1k technology, which is also compatible with the RFID technology of the Technogym MyWellness Key. This allows health club members to use the key to gain access to all the fitness facility has to offer.
