4 tips to design for Leisure sector locker rooms

When designing a leisure locker room, it requires careful consideration of functionality, comfort, and aesthetics to create a space that meets and needs of the members.

Here are 4 tips when designing Leisure locker rooms.

  1. Space planning and Layout

  • Efficient Layout: Design a layout that ensures easy movement. Separate areas for changing, and showering which can enhance functionality.
  • Suitable Space: Ensure that there is enough space for each user to move comfortably. Avoid overcrowding by providing sufficient rooms between lockers and seating areas.
  1. Locker and Storage Solutions

  • Individual lockers: Provide individual Lockers for each member to accommodate their personal belongings.
  • Ventilation: Incorporating a ventilation system within the lockers to prevent the smell as well as airflow helps to maintain a fresh environment.
  • Secure Storage: installing lockers to secure valuables is important so the customers and employees can feel ensured that their personal items are safe within the lockers.
  1. Comfort and Hygiene

  • Shower and Toilets: Ensure an adequate number of showers and toilets. Use low-maintenance, durable materials such as laminate, which are easy to clean and sanitize.
  • Seating: Provide seating as it allows customers to sit down and change their shoes rather than having to balance.
  1. Technology Integration

  • Charging stations: Including charging stations for electronic devices, which can be beneficial for customers if the batteries are low and need their phones when they are leaving.
  • Heated lockers: they are ideal for commuters and staff who require their damp clothes to dry before the end of their time in the leisure centres or spas.

Refurbishing lockers and cubicles

Summer months can be the perfect opportunity to schedule projects to upgrade and refurbish changing areas and locker rooms in schools and sports facilities. Security and durability are highly important when refurbishing your lockers and cubicles. At Helmsman, we can replace locks, keys, locker doors and cubicle locks if needed. We can even add more security to your changing room cubicles with anti-peep rails and anti-finger trap solutions. We have a variety of cost-effective options.

School Sector

School lockers see a lot of action. Vandalism issues aside, school lockers need to withstand daily use. Metal lockers have been a favourite of schools; however, we have noticed a new trend from schools using laminate lockers. Laminate lockers are aesthetically pleasing, and more so are incredibly durable.

Many schools are still favouring cam locks and swivel locks as a locking system. These locking systems are easily interchangeable and Helmsman can offer swivel locks and padlocks as a pair for your school lockers. Locker keys and master keys are also easily replaceable. We manufacture keys in-house.

Helmsman can provide metal and laminate colour samples for large projects if doors need to be replaced because of damage or wear and tear. Changing locker doors is a hassle-free job, and depending on the number of lockers, our installation and service team can have it in place in no time. Summer holidays are the perfect time to renew and replace lockers and cubicles. During this time, schools are empty, and maintenance work can without any disturbance.

Leisure Sector

Leisure facilities, gyms and spa health centres are oozing luxury as they mostly use digital locks for smart-looking lockers. We can replace digital locks or can replace doors and upgrade your lockers with digital locks. The advantages of having leisure lockers with digital locks are endless. Security and convenience is a top priority for the customer.

Helmsman can easily replace your old wrist straps if you still choose to use the reliable key and strap. Master key or locker key replacements are easily achievable and will be with you in no time by post.
