As the leading supplier of coin locks in the UK - Abloy offers solutions to Leisure centres, Golf centres, Supermarkets, Fitness clubs, Spa centres and many more.

What do you need to know about the new £1 coin?

As the new £1 coin comes into circulation on the 28th of March 2017, for a period of time the new and old £1 coin will both be in circulation this period will be from March 2017 to 15th October 2017.

Following the six month co-circulation period, the current £1 coin will no longer be legal tender.

What is the impact on your current coin operated lockers?

A huge number of coin-operated lockers are currently configured to work with £1 coins. With the new design being introduced, coin locks cannot be operated by the new one pound coin, so they will need to be converted or replaced. We can offer a solution for this.

Don't get left behind - The Public will expect their coins to work in lockers as soon as they enter circulation, so it’s important to start dealing with any potential issues right now.

How can ABLOY help you in this transition?

Abloy has a range of cost effective solutions that can be easily installed in your current lockers. Two coin locks; the Classic and E-lite have been designed to accept both the current and new £1 coin.

Conversion kits for the Classic Coin Lock are available so you can easily convert your existing ASSA Locks.

We also offer alternative locks that eliminate the need for coins and tokens. The Mifare RFID and the ASSA Coded 1.2 Digital Cabinet Lock are the future of locker locks, with a sleek and stylish design they are ideal for leisure centres and are very popular in Spas.
