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.


Loreto Mandeville Hall

Established in 1924, Loreto Mandeville Hall is an early learning, primary and secondary day school for girls, located in Toorak, Melbourne. METRA Australia recently completed the design and install of High-Pressure Laminate (HPL) lockers fitted with hard-wired electronic locks. Users conveniently access individual secure storage lockers via central keypad terminal.


Padua College

METRA Australia completed a recent project at Padua College, Mornington. Our High-Pressure Laminate (HPL) school lockers with self-closing doors were designed and installed with security and convenience in mind. The visual style was selected from our huge range of finishes and each locker door was fitted with an individual ASSA Abloy locker hasp.

Melbourne Girls Grammar

Melbourne Girls Grammar (MGGS) is a progressive, contemporary and independent school, which has delivered an exceptional education for girls from Early Learning to Year 12 for more than 125 years.

With the construction of their brand new, state of the art, Artemic Centre which includes a swimming pool, netball and basketball courts, fitness hub and more, it was imperative that the girls had a easy to use and secure place to store their belongings.

The Metra RFID “on-door” solution was the best fit for the new change rooms at  MGGS. This means the girls are able to unlock a locker directly on the locker door using their RFID access media.

The longevity of the lockers was also an important part of the brief when designing the lockers. Our HPL Compact lockers are built tough and durable and were able to be tailored to their needs. HPL Compact is durable, moisture, bacteria and corrosion resistant making them the perfect solution for MGGS changerooms. They are also backed with a 10-year warranty on the locker construction.
