Coin Operated Lockers to help you avoid lost keys and the misuse of the storage you offer in public spaces.
We have a huge range of lockers here at Workplace Products. These coin operated lockers are some of our most popular for use in many location such as gyms, fitness centres, spas and swimming pools. Often, the need for a coin encourages users to take more care of their key and the locker compartment they use.
All of our coin locks are multi-purpose, meaning they will accept pound coins and even old style pound coins. They can also be made to operate with a comprehensive range of other coins such as euros or tokens.
Coin retain or Coin return lockers?
There are two different mechanisms in our coin operated locker locks for you to choose from.
The first option is the coin return lock. This requires a pound coin to be inserted by the user to lock the compartment, and then returns that coin when the user is finished and unlocks the locker. This an effective way to encourage the user to return to the locker so they don’t miss out on getting their pound back. It also helps to motivate the user to take good care of the locker key, avoiding the issues that arise when keys are lost.
The second option available to you is a coin retain lock. This also requires a coin or token to lock the compartment, but does not return the coin to the user. This not only provides the user with an incentive to make good use of the locker but also provides you with an additional source of revenue. The coins are stored safely in a compartment attached to the lock, ready for a member of staff to unlock and collect later on.
Wet and dry area locks
To maintain good working order, you will want to think about the environment in which the lockers and their locks will be used in.
Both of our replacement locks come in both wet and dry area variants to make sure you can choose the most appropriate locks regardless of where they are being used. For lockers being used in a wet area, such as a changing room or at a poolside, our wet area locks are designed to avoid rusting or deteriorating over time while exposed to moisture.
Occassionally you might want to update your lockers to keep up with any change in currency. Rather than buying a whole set of new lockers, why not just install replacement locks for your lockers? All our coin locks accept both the current pound coin and the older coins so you won’t be leaving out any customers when the locks are changed. We can also offer locks that accept euros, 50 and 20 pence pieces and coin shaped tokens, often given out in reception areas. Just get in touch to let us know which one of these you will need.
