Aqualink, Nunawading

 

Aqualink, Nunawading has been a long time client of Metra Australia and when the time came to upgrade their lockers, we knew exactly what was required.

Technology has changed dramatically from when their lockers were first installed 10 years ago. We were able to replace their old, members only, battery lock solution to the Metra hardwired centralised solution with two kiosks.

This solution has been installed with the capability to upgrade to casual use with a payWave/cashless payment option in the future. This will mean that when Aqualink are ready, their casual patrons PARC can purchase their own locker, in their own time, directly at the locker bank rather than going back to the reception.

 

 

Aqualink initially had MDF lockers with standard door hinges installed at the centre. Being a wet and high-humidity area, the MDF quickly started to rot and the hinges began to rust resulting in doors not functioning properly.

Our Kupan HPL lockers are designed and constructed to be water and corrosion-resistant. They feature a one piece aluminium hinge (no rust), self-closing doors and a 10-year warranty.

The installation of the Metra Locking system was also easily integrated with their 3rd party POS solution via the use of our API.

 

 

Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre

 

Peninsular Aquatic Recreation Centre (PARC) opened in September 2014 thanks to the vision of Frankston City Council to ensure that everyone in Frankston has the opportunity to be active. PARC and Frankston City Council approached Metra Aus late 2019 to discuss the replacement of their 350+ lockers.

Not only did Metra Aus replace the lockers, we upgraded their solution to ensure the members and casual patrons of PARC had a modern and easy to use locker experience.

 

 

PARC initially had MDF lockers with standard door hinges installed through out the centre. However it soon became apparent that this was not the best solution. Being a wet and high-humidity area, the MDF quickly started to rot and the hinges began to rust resulting in doors not functioning properly.

Our Kupan HPL lockers are designed and constructed to be water and corrosion-resistant. A perfect solution for the lockers being used around the pool decks at PARC, featuring a one piece aluminium hinge (no rust), self-closing doors and a 10-year warranty.

 

 

Being a large centre, a mix of the Metra centralised locks, accessed via a central kiosk,  and the Metra RFID on-door solution, was implemented.

The Metra centralised kiosks now have the ability to have a payWave/cashless payment option installed. This means that the casual patrons of PARC can purchase their own locker, in their own time, directly at the locker bank rather than going back to the reception.

The casual use of the lockers works by the patron selecting a locker available, assigning themselves a 4-digit PIN, and presenting their payWave card to the payment terminal.

 

 

 

Girton Grammar School

RFID Education Lockers

Girton Grammar School approached Metra Aus requesting a solution for new lockers. Basic school lockers are installed with the use of a padlock hasp for students however as Girton Grammar already use RFID card technology throughout their school, the decision was made to continue the trend and have their new lockers link to their existing technology via the Metra hard-wired locking solution. By linking the new lockers to their existing card technology, it meant their students didn’t require keys or have to remember codes for additional padlocks.

Students access their lockers by initially being assigned a locker via the schools admin and then swiping their card at the reader located on the locker bank to open their door

The Metra hard-wired locking solution also provides the school with locker usage status reports. The school can see when a locker has been opened and how many times. The solution also includes master cards which can open any door, perfect for school administrators.

The lockers themselves are made from High-Pressure Laminate (HPL).  Designed and constructed to be water and corrosion-resistant and featuring a one piece aluminium hinge (no rust). This hinge also allows the locker doors to self-close. No more walking down school hallways having to shut all the opened lockers!

The sloping top addition is to prevent items being placed on the  top of the units, and is finished to match the carcass. Our HPL lockers are all backed with a 10-year warranty.

 

Transport for NSW Macquarie Park

Metra Australia are proud to once again be chosen by Transport for NSW to provide the latest in smart lockers. Together with Lockin we delivered a flexible and secure personal storage system that satisfies the needs of their staff.

The latest commercial office development at 45-61 Waterloo Road, Macquarie Park is said to be one of Australia’s most contemporary business precincts. This project saw the team design and install 3,952 lockers set across six levels of the brand new office complex.

Each locker was fitted with the Metra HID Centralised Locking Solution (hard-wired, no batteries). Staff can access their assigned lockers via RFID media (smartcard or phone app) at one of the 64 Metra Reader Terminals, with genuine Bluetooth enabled HID technology, located within each of the locker banks.

Our integrated back office METRA ELS software solution meant staff were able to use their existing RFID media card for building access and locker access. Locker banks are located in various high traffic areas of each office space, including hallways, islands and built into plaster walls.
