Helmsman Lockers and Cubicles invited back to Exeter to replace locks at Riverside Leisure Centre

Riverside Leisure Centre in Exeter is run by Exeter City Council and boasts a Gym, Swimming Pool, Health Suite, Sports Hall, Squash Courts and more. Following Helmsman’s work with Exeter City Council on the changing rooms at St Sidwell’s Point Leisure Centre, they were asked to return to Exeter for some repair work at the Riverside Leisure Centre.

Whilst Helmsman had not fitted the original lockers and locks, their service department are equipped to help with repairs and replacements for lockers and other products provided and/or fitted by other manufacturers. The Riverside Leisure Centre lockers had a number of faulty digital locks, and so we recommended a new lock that would stand the test of time.

Their team removed 290 doors and re-drilled to fix the new Ojmar OTS Advanced RFID locks. The existing doors with new locks were then re-fixed to the lockers. The new locks allow users to open or close lockers by simply pressing a proximity media: card, bracelet or Wellness® key against the doorknob. With a high battery life and vandal proof design, this lock is the perfect choice for a leisure centre changing rooms.

It was great to be invited back by Exeter City Council and highlights the high quality of work Helmsman provided at St Sidwell’s Point. Helmsman look forward to working alongside the team at Exeter City Council again in the future.
