Haughton Design’s approach began by working with Pelipod to understand the most common and practical sizes required for the locker system.
From the early phases of the project, it was evident that aluminium extruded profiles and 2D cut to size panels would be the most efficient method of manufacturing and assembling the locker system. FEA and Simulation techniques were used to test concepts and ensure the lockers were robust enough to endure harsh environmental and operating conditions.
HD involved Pelipod’s chosen suppliers for the project from the early stages of the development process to ensure all elements of the design worked together and were prepared for volume manufacture. This resulted in a highly successful set of locker prototypes, ready to progress into later stages of development and industrialisation with cost effective and optimised manufacturing solutions. In addition, HD’s work gave the ability to provide lockers optimised for various space requirements. A successful set of locker prototypes with added security were provided and a great working relationship was formed. The lockers are in the process of being rolled out across the UK.
