Forth Valley Acute Hospital Selects Garran Lockers to Provide a Locker System Operated by ID Cards

Garran Lockers have been selected to provide 1280 staff locker compartments and a centrally controlled electronic locker management system at the newly built Forth Valley Acute Hospital in Scotland.

Caerphilly, United Kingdom, August 05, 2010 --( Garran Lockers, one of the longest established manufacturers of lockers in the UK, have started the delivery and installation of 1280 staff lockers at the hospital site which is due for completion in 2011.

Garran was selected for this project from a number of UK locker manufacturers and suppliers while the tender was also advertised in the European Journal. The choice of Garran came as no surprise as the company has earned its long-standing reputation as the leading UK locker manufacturer, as the result of 50 years of industry experience and a continued commitment towards new product development. The company was also able to meet all the stringent requirements defined in the tender document.

The locker facility at the new Forth Valley Hospital is designed to provide staff members with a short term access to a locker for the storage of personal articles for the duration of the shift. Access to lockers is to be gained through the use of hospital issued swipe/ID cards. The management system provides an alarm/alert when a locker has been occupied for more than 15 hours. It also provides general and specific staff usage reports in a format which can be saved or printed. Lockers can be opened (by authorised operators) from both a central location and within the locker room.

Steve Potts, Sales Director at Garran Lockers commented:
“We are delighted to have won the Forth Valley Acute Hospital project. This impressive new build requires the state-of-the-art changing room facilities managed by the latest proximity technology and Garran is well capable of delivering the complete solution. Garran counts many hospitals among its clients and has strong relationships with many public sector organisations.”

Garran Lockers are one of a few UK locker manufactures capable of offering a complete and tailor made service from design through to manufacturing and installation. On this project Garran worked with Traka to provide the fully networked system. Garran’s lockers are always provided on a supply and fix basis, backed by maintenance teams covering the whole country. Every installation comes with an after-care tool kit, maintenance instruction and training.
