Metra Australia shares details of Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre locker installation

Metra Australia shares details of Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre locker installation
February 22, 2021

Leading locker supplier Metra Australia has shared details of its installation of 280 lockers at the City of Sydney’s newly opened Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre (GPARC).

Highly experienced in delivering locker technology and solutions, the lockers and pigeon holes within the facility are High-Pressure Laminate (HPL), providing robust security and damage resistance.

A Metra Australia spokesperson advised “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, for which the City of Sydney sought a locking solution that gave members access to lockers via the use of their 360 membership card. Metra Dot Technology provided the solution for this.

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.

Having the ‘self-serve’ kiosks installed within the locker banks 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 the facility’s Links Modular Solutions management software.

Summing up the project, the Metra spokesperson added “GPARC is the largest pool complex built in Sydney since the 2000 Olympics (so) it’s no wonder they required 280 lockers plus an additional 50 pigeon holes.”
