RESCON Builders design and build granny flats by combining practical living with beautiful modern architecture. Based in New South Wales, the team utilise an extensive partner network to focus on affordability, energy efficiency and sustainability. Above all the team pride themselves on ensuring high-quality and professional results on every project. METRA Australia were engaged to design and supply personal locker storage for staff located at their main office and showroom in Bella Vista, NSW.
Our team’s intelligent and flexible solution included installing durable High-Pressure Laminate lockers in a style to suit and enhance the office setting. Each locker was fitted with our patented hardwired (no batteries) METRA electronic lock with RIFD proximity access. Staff access assigned lockers with their smartphone (and selected smart watches) using the HID Mobile Access app (available on iOS and Android) via secure (encrypted) HID Seos® credential technology. A central Display RFID panel communicates locker signal functions (lock/unlock) and is back office coordinated with MyMetraLockers (MML) management software.
“METRA AUSTRALIA HAVE BEEN GREAT TO DEAL WITH AND COMPLETED OUR JOB TO A HIGH-QUALITY STANDARD. WE OPTED FOR A CUSTOM AND COMPLEX DESIGN WHICH WAS NO HASSLE FOR THE TEAM AT METRA. INTEGRATING OUR EXISTING SECURITY SYSTEM WITH THE LOCKERS WAS A COMPLEX REQUEST BUT WAS COMPLETED AND FOLLOWED UP ON UNTIL EVERYTHING WAS WORKING SEAMLESSLY. OUR NEW LOCKER SYSTEM IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF OUR NEW ACTIVITY BASED WORKSPACE AND HAS BEEN WELL RECEIVED BY ALL OUR STAFF.”
Netbookings (reservations and booking software) and METRA Australia have partnered to create an integrated RFID wristband solution.
RFID wristband technology offers seamless access management and improves on-site security such as facility entry and open/closing of personal locker storage.
RFID is considered more secure than paper tickets due to the chip found inside the wristband or access card that is uniquely tied to the holder of the card, which ensures it can only be presented once.
With our RFID cashless payment solution you can offer an enhanced user experience.
Our solution works by assigning a RFID wristband to a locker along with a cash credit amount. The credit can then be used towards food or beverages, or other products or services.
RMS is an operating agency within the Transport Cluster of NSW. Transport for NSW is at the centre of the Transport cluster with responsibility for setting the strategic direction and guiding an extended network of public and private service delivery agencies to provide improved transport outcomes. This NSW government agency was established on the 1st November 2011. METRA Australia has been working closely with RMS and TfNSW to satisfy the personal storage needs for their staff.
RMS and TfNSW required a safe and secure system for staff’s belongings to be stored. METRA Australia is a simple and secure solution. Currently there is close to 8,000 lockers installed over more than 30x individual floors, located in over 14 separate sites throughout NSW. Staff members are assigned a locker(s) that can be accessed from central reader terminals located within the locker banks by their employee ID (and access) card.
METRA Australia’s distinctive style and innovative solutions have ensured an easy-to-use system and highly secure lockers.
Aqualink Box Hill has been working with METRA Australia for approximately 2 years after the installation of new lockers in the aquatics area. METRA lockers are in both the gym and aquatics, and also METRA locks in the gym area.
METRA Australia provided peace-of-mind in organising and processing service calls, and service staff attended the site with a minimal interruption while acting on the service call.
All services carried out thus far have been completed to a high standard, and follow-up communication is always given on what was specifically carried out at the time of the service.
Being a community service, Aqualink Box Hill ensures their facilities, equipment and services are functionally adequately at all times, and as such METRA Australia offer callout services at short notice and with quick and efficient outcomes achieved. This ensures any downtime on lockers for Aqualink Box Hill members are kept to a minimum.
101 Miller Street is a premium grade building co-owned by Mirvac Group and TIAA CREF. The landmark tower encompasses an entire CBD block, offering occupiers exposure on a grand scale. METRA Australia installed high-quality centralised METRA Locks with three Touchscreens utilising the METRA Kiosk application.
Since 2007, 101 Miller Street has undergone a complete transformation in keeping with the demands of modern business. The superb finishes have been chosen for their simplicity and durability exhibiting a classic, corporate luxury design. Within the complex there is storage for more than 170 bicycles conveniently located in the car park, with further refurbished bathrooms, showers and staff lockers nearby.
The Bike Rack METRA touchscreen can access all three areas (Bike Rack, Male Change, & Female Change), whereas the kiosks in the male and female change can only access their own area. The readers have been locked (in hardware) to the customer’s access card and won’t read common Mifare ™ cards (Opal, Miki, etc.).
The locker reservations automatically expire overnight, and coupled with a nightly automatic opening of all the lockers after the site has closed, allows for cleaning staff to come through and clear down the lockers.
