Brief

Al Ain Hospital required a high volume of locker product that would travel well in the heat and humidity, as the products might be stored in 40’ containers that would be exposed to temperatures of nearly 50°C without air conditioning.

The client wanted a durable product that would be hard to damage, as well as extensive colour finishes - and all at a competitive price. It was deemed that steel would be too expensive, so we chose CPL (Compact Pressure Laminate) lockers as it ticks all the client’s boxes. We provided lockers that were quick to install upon arrival and which were fitted with Digilock locks.

Solutions

Bisley Design team looked very closely at the options between steel, CPL and other materials and it was decided that compact pressure laminate was the best suited given the potential environmental factors. The lockers had the bright colours of CPL combined with all the USP’s of that raw material. Arabian Company were also supplying lab furniture from Germany so it was important to be happy and comfortable with Bisley’s product offering on the back of house lockers.

We gave Arabian Company a long-lasting product that will not damage as easy and that looks aesthetically every bit as “interesting” as its equivalent made from steel.

Results

We were particularly good at coming back quickly with different product and material options for the dealer, designer and end-user to consider. Our service was good however the site was postponed so the lockers needed to be put into storage.
