31 . 01 . 2019

Now featuring improved connectivity, xLocker2 introduces a unique steel personal storage solution for flexible, agile, activity-based working environments or end-of-journey storage for commuters and mobile workers. Designed to aid collaboration, drive productivity, maximize space and provide better flexibility than traditional locker storage, this personal solution solves the problems associated with individual storage needs in communal multi-purpose work environments.  

The only Australian locker to receive AFRDI Blue & Green Tick Level A Platinum certification, xLocker2 incorporates sustainability from concept to manufacture. Made in Hallam, Melbourne using over 95% locally sourced materials, xLocker2 is manufactured in an ISO14001 and ISO9001 certified production facility from 100% recyclable BlueScope steel, is designed for disassembly and VOC-Free.

An evolution of the highly successful Planex xLocker range, xLocker2 features the possibility of soft-wiring to power portable devices. A new joining system allows faster assembly on site and reduces the number of tools required and allows for simple reconfiguration and re-use. Like the original xLocker, xLocker2 can also be fitted with laminate or veneered doors to create a customized fit-out, whilst still maintaining modularity, optional perforations, choice of colours and finishes, various locking options and up to 100% recyclability. Features of the xLocker2 are patent pending.
