With Metra Australia’s proven track record in Aquatic Facilities, the decision to implement Metra HPL Lockers and Locking Technologies is an easy one. A combined experience level of over 100 years in the leisure industry makes Metra the best for customer and staff experience alike.
Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre within The City of Sydney is the largest pool complex built in Sydney since the 2000 Olympics.
The centre includes four pools, a large fitness centre, outdoor sport and recreation facilities, café, creche and community meeting rooms. It’s no wonder they required 280 lockers plus an additional 50 pigeon holes.
All the lockers and pigeon holes within the facility are High-Pressure Laminate (HPL), providing robust security and damage resistance. HPL is durable, moisture, bacteria and corrosion resistant. Inside the lockers there are full length aluminium hinges, offering structural stability in a range of vertical and horizontal applications. The colours GPARC have chosen are “Light Stone Grey” and “Sea Green”.
GPARC includes areas within the facility that are accessible only to their members. When discussing the perfect locking solution, it was required that members are to have access to a locker via the use of their award winning 360 membership card. The Metra Dot Technology is the perfect solution.
Casual visitors are able to purchase a locker directly at a locker bank via the Metra Kiosk. The kiosks have a payWave cashless payment terminal installed and are linked to the Metra ELS Technology. Via the use of a pin code, casual visitors are able to self assign themselves a locker for a set amount of time. By having the “self-serve” kiosks installed within the locker banks it removes the inconvenience for customers having to return to the front desk to purchase a ticket or wristband and in return freeing up staff for other duties.
All the casual transactions and membership access is controlled by a seamless integration with their facility management software .
