B2K's Smart locker is Metalprogetti's innovative solution to solve space and safety problems in staff changing rooms.
It consists of a garment bag drop off and distribution system for personal garments and other belongings, the system associates each user with a personalised garment bag identified by a code.
This system replaces the lockers that are traditionally used in changing rooms, saves up to 70% space and offers a much higher safety level. The system is modular: each module consists of a conveyor that can store between 130-150 garment bags, with an automatic gate which the user collects and returns his/her bag.
The garment bags come with different features, depending on the users' requirements: they may for instance have pockets for small items and/or shoes, or internal separation to keep work wear and personal clothes apart.
Every time a user wants to use the system, he has to identify himself with his badge. If he is collecting his bag, the conveyor sets into motion and places the corresponding bag in front of the automatic gate, which will open to allow the user to retrieve the bag. When the user returns his bag, the conveyor places the corresponding empty slot in front of the automatic gate, so that the user can hang his back into this slot.
The safety level is high: indeed, the system has a device that prevents the user from having access to nearby bags both when retrieving and when returning his own items.
Besides, every user's access to the system is registered in correspondence with the user data in the management software, which makes it possible to track all useful information.
