Project Details

Client: Northern Trains Ltd
Location: Newcastle Upon Tyne
Project Type: Metal Z Lockers
Project value (approx.): £45k
Year Completed: 2024

Northern Train Limited is the second largest train operator in the UK, which is owned by DfT OLR Holdings Limited (DOHL), who has responsibility for four rail companies. They are committed to working closely with all aspects of the rail industry to ensure that thousands of people with employment and service to travel for work, leisure, and education.

Northern Rail has returned to Helmsman multiple times for Lockers and Bench Seating for different railway services up north. For this project, the Helmsman team manufactured and installed 185 two-compartment Metal Z Lockers to accommodate 370 people.

Z Lockers are the perfect locker design for maximising internal space as they have a small footprint while offering excellent space minimization.  As one of the UK’s leading locker manufacturers, we also provide the project with Bespoke Z Locker designs as they were requested to be 2000mm high, 450mm wide, and 500mm deep with a perforated base. A perforated base is an excellent addition as it allows air to flow throughout the lockers.

The body of the metal Z lockers were powder coated in the colour ‘Ice’, while the doors were powder coated in ‘Smoke’. The lockers were numbered with Helmsman laminated number plates and finished with Camlocks, which is our standard lock, however a fantastic choice, as they are reliable and durable ensuring users that personal belongings are safe as well as being affordable.

It was great to work alongside Northern Trains Ltd once again, this time on the project at Newcastle.
