Taking a Leisurely Approach to Refurbishment

According to leisure market research company the Leisure Database, there are more leisure facilities, gyms and swimming pools than ever before in the UK. With an increasing number of gyms and fitness centres opening up, it is becoming even more important to invest in the changing rooms as a way to attract and retain customers.

One of the most pressing issues with changing facilities, particularly lockers, is the introduction of the new £1 coin. In March 2017, the ‘round pound’ will be replaced with a new, twelve sided bi-metallic coin and many leisure centre owners are taking this opportunity to upgrade their existing locker facilities and invest in more robust, aesthetic materials.

Solid Grade Laminate is a durable material and it retains its aesthetics for years, providing a cost-effective yet stylish option for locker replacement or refurbishment. It is also one of the few materials that can be used in wet or humid environments without damage, as it is completely waterproof.

With many new schools and colleges also choosing to have their own swimming pools and gyms built these days, Solid Grade Laminate is proving to be the material of choice in order to withstand the harsh environments.

With scratch resistant properties, Solid Grade Laminate has a lifespan of over 30 years, extending the life-cycle of the cubicles and lockers and offering good life time values. It is available in a full range of colours and images can even be digitally printed onto the material, which is perfect for children’s facilities or company branding and logos.

Here at Panel Systems, we have both 3-axis and 5-axis CNC machines plus 3D capability, which means we have extensive manufacturing capabilities.
