The SolutionThe solution to this problem was designed,
manufactured and installed byLink Lockers and The City and Holbeck
Division of West Yorkshire Police isnow benefiting from a
comprehensive refurbishment at its headquarters inLeeds. Central to
the refurbishment are locker facilities for 460
officers.Importantly, each locker combines conventional personal
storage with unitsthat are purpose designed to accommodate new
personal issue PSUequipment.
Separate female and male changing areas have now been fitted
withindividual locker and PSU cages that carry up to date personal
issueequipment as specified by the Home Office. Both lockers and
cages areaccessible via keys assigned to individual officers. The
majority of the facilityalso benefits from wooden bench seating,
installed by Link Lockers tocompliment the locker instillation and
deliver a comfortable changingenvironment.
The mesh cages are located directly underneath the full height
lockers whichthemselves provide both changing and shelf storage.
The cage design is theresult of detailed discussions and assessment
between Link Lockers and theclient and the resulting bespoke
solution accommodates the precisedimensions of the new PSU bags.
The overall layout also takes intoconsideration variable ceiling
heights and room configurations, includingexisting ducting and
pillars and therefore makes optimum use of the existingfloor
