Advanced Locker committed to building its lockers and terminals in Australia

Advanced Locker committed to building its lockers and terminals in Australia
June 15, 2021

Created to supply lockers for all sectors of the leisure industry, along with parcel lockers for apartments and offices and refrigerated lockers for supermarkets, Advanced Locker is committed to build its lockers and terminals in Australia.

Established by owners Dean Burrows and Chris Kenny, the business’ origins go back to a project  Burrows undertook in 2012 while studying at Swinburne University of Technology.

Looking to deliver an Australian-made locker product that was resilient, functional and with visual appealing, the locker now includes LED lights and stainless steel/non-corrosive material construction because, as Burrows explains “electro rust prevention systems don’t stop rust as claimed by many in the locker industry”.  

In addition, the lockers’ internal contents sensing cameras prevent users locking themselves out of a locker if anything as small as a credit card is left behind while its electronic solution is fully waterproof allowing outdoor placement with an asset life of 15 years.

Beyond this, Burrows explains “the next step was to develop and build our own terminal, one of the first in Australia.

“The terminal had to be customer friendly and allow the option of all payment gateways, RFID, 15 or 24 inch screens that can display advertising and be able to work in extremes of heat and cold.

“We contracted Procept, a Melbourne owned and based electronics and software company, to help deliver all our requirements and certification for the global market.

“Advanced Locker Management was another tool added for the benefit of our customers which automates and centralises the locker system.

“This is a cloud-based server that all locker terminals report to and accessed through secure credentials on our website (which) allows for real time fault alerts via email with automatic disabling of doors, customer service functions such as swap lockers, change pins and revenue and utilisation reporting.”

Another step for the company was finding a manufacturing partner, with the company joining forces with Assemco - with a shared office and warehouse area - enabling the company to undertake every step of the manufacturing process under the one roof.

Burrows advises “the results are awesome and the finished product is the latest in technology all built in Australia.”

Burrows goes on to say that Advanced Locker will be retrofitting current customers while also welcoming new ones.
