New products and new installations. We take a look at what’s hot in the world of lockers

Published in Health Club Management 2014 issue 11

Mood and ambience

Two “markedly different yet personalised” changing areas for male and female members have been created by Craftsman Quality Lockers at Goodwood Health Club.

The company aimed to provide a specific mood and ambience rather than off-the-shelf solutions at the club, which is part of the Earl of March’s Goodwood estate in West Sussex.

The women’s changing area has been designed with a beach hut effect, using cool pastel shades, in contrast with the more ‘muscular’ black upholstery and metallic hues in the men’s changing room, according to Craftsman.

Wrist action

EasyBand is a new low-cost, waterproof RFID wristband that can integrate with locker systems.

Launched by Glasgow-based Authentic8 ID Solutions UK, the wristband uses a NXP Mifare 1K chip and is made from silicone. Each band is laser-engraved with a unique serial number. Authentic8 says no hardware changes or upgrades are required if contactless or proximity Mifare smartcards or keyfobs are already being used.

The wristbands come in adult and junior sizes, and are available in a range of colours. They can also be customised to a club’s requirements.

All change

Launched at Leisure Industry Week, Safe Space Evolution is a wooden locker from Safe Space Lockers constructed from MFC (melamine faced chipboard) with a timber-based carcase and laminate doors.

It can be positioned in any tier configuration and comes in a variety of widths (300mm, 350mm, 400mm). The locker also features 6mm toughened glass, and many colour options are available. All lock types can be added.

Daniel Jones, sales director at Safe Space, said there had been “plenty of interest” in the new product at LIW, which was held at Birmingham’s NEC.

Winning combination

Lowe & Fletcher has launched a range of contactless digital combination locks, which allow the user immediate and simple keypad access without the need for a key. The battery-operated locks can either be used independently or paired with existing wireless systems using RFID.

Users have the flexibility to set and change their personal entry code, while a preset master code ensures that supervisor access is always available.

Upgrading

Oxfordshire’s Heythrop Park has begun the process of upgrading 250 key and coin-operated lockers in its clubhouse changing rooms, moving to Codelocks’ KitLock digital cabinet locks.

Designed to be as robust as possible, the locks are fitted in place of standard key cam locks, with customers needing only to enter a four-digit code on the keypad, lock the cabinet, and go. A six-digit technician code ensures that supervisory access is available if customers forget their code.
