An industry first – disposable sports towels

A range of multiple-use disposable sports towels is new to the industry. The ‘Easydry Sports Shower Towel’ is lightweight at just a few grams but has the capacity to hold 10 times its own weight in water. The ‘Easydry Two-pack Sports Towels’ comprise a towel for the user and another to protect gym equipment. They have been created to be more hygienic, lighter, compact, faster-drying and at least three times as absorbent as a traditional cotton towel.

Golf club tees up solution to problem of lost keys

Oxfordshire’s Heythrop Park has begun upgrading 250 key and coin operated lockers in its clubhouse changing rooms to Codelocks’ ‘KitLock’ digital cabinet locks. The robust locks are fitted in place of standard key cam locks, with customers needing only to enter a four-digit code on the keypad, lock the cabinet and go. The lockers were identified as an area for improvement because customers didn’t always have a pound coin with them and often lockers would be out of commission due to lost keys.

An evolution in wooden lockers from Safe Space

Launched at Leisure Industry Week (LIW), ‘Safe Space Evolution’ is a wooden locker from Safe Space Lockers constructed from MFC (melamine faced chipboard) with a timber-based carcase and laminate doors. It can be positioned in any tier configuration and comes in a variety of widths (300mm, 350mm, 400mm). The locker also features 6mm toughened glass, and many colour options are available. All lock types can be added. Daniel Jones, sales director at Safe Space, said there had been “plenty of interest” in the new product at LIW, which was held at Birmingham’s NEC.

A winning combination of digital locking systems

Lowe & Fletcher has launched a range of contactless digital combination locks, which allow the user immediate and simple keypad access without the need for a key. The battery-operated locks can either be used independently or paired with existing wireless systems using RFID. Users have the flexibility to set and change their personal entry code. In addition, a preset master code ensures that supervisor access is always available.

Battle of the sexes in Craftsman’s changing areas

Two “markedly different yet personalised” changing areas for male and female members have been created by Craftsman Lockers at Goodwood Health Club. Digital locking has been introduced to provide additional security and alleviate the problem of lost keys. Timed release also allows members full access to any locker, rather than members laying claim to their own one. The women’s changing area features a beach hut effect in cool pastel shades, which contrasts with the black upholstery and metallic hues in the men’s changing room.
