Since 1956 Locker has been an industry leading provider of perforated and expanded metal, woven wire, wire mesh and curtains. While initially we serviced the industrial sector, the architectural market has grown into one of our key areas of operation. We’ve developed our specialised range of metal products to meet the needs of architects designing facades, balustrades and weather screens, as well as interiors and specialised features.
It’s not just our range of products that we supply, however. As specialists in creating unique metal design solutions, we are always pushing the envelope. Not merely in terms of getting new and improved products to market, but also in our ability to create custom solutions. While our products are hugely flexible in how they can be customised to highlight and enhance existing design features – we also pride ourselves on our ability to produce one-off items.
Design & Innovation
We understand the architect’s drive to create something new and unique, and that’s why Locker isn’t about pushing established solutions. We look to open a dialogue with the designers and architects we work with to understand the nature of each project and their specific requirements.
Together we decide the best ways our products can be used and tailored to bring out the best qualities of every design. If we don’t have the right product, we can create it for you. Working towards a shared goal of excellency means we are not afraid to do things that haven’t been done or to explore out of the box solutions.
This is not to say that all innovation at Locker is pushed by our clients. Our experienced team is heavily invested in the architectural industry and follow new trends and technologies with a keen eye. In this respect, our range is in a state of constant development. What can we develop to meet new design styles? How can we make use of new technologies? These are the questions we ask ourselves to stay ahead of the curve and push the boundaries of what’s possible for our clients.
Expertise & Quality
Locker has a large team consisting of experienced professionals across multiple disciplines. From designers and architects to engineers and specialist machinists, we have the full suite of experts in house, working together to create the finest products. This means we can ensure that our designs work aesthetically and functionally, they meet the requirements of the Building Code of Australia, and that producing them is physically possible.
We’ve been producing perforated and expanded metal products for a long time – over 60 years – and this experience has shaped Locker into the industry leader it is today. With decades more experience than our competitors, we’ve refined our operations to efficiently service the architectural industry. While we work with other industries we pride ourselves on being true experts in our field.
We’re dedicated to quality and we have extremely high standards. If a single product doesn’t meet those standards then we are not prepared to release it. We’ve built a strong name over our long history, and that name guarantees quality. All of our manufacturers are ISO accredited and that’s why our products are exceptional, every time.
Curtains – Our bespoke interconnected wire mesh curtains are ideal for internal and external screening, chic facades and space delineation. Curtains are available in stainless steel and brass and can be fit in a number of ways to suit unlimited applications.
Woven wire – Locker’s innovative woven wire combines delicacy with durability and is best utilised in screening, weather shielding or simply to add detailed texture to an interior or exterior surface. Available in several stylistic profiles, our woven wire can be precision designed for any project.
Perforated – A cornerstone of the Locker product range, our perforated metal, Australian manufactured are available in an almost infinite number of configurations. Encompassing a broad range of metal bases, perforation can be customised by shape, size and pattern – we can even customise colours and create three dimensional profiles. Our perforated metal products instantly provide a unique character for your design.
Pic Perf – An innovative and remarkable extension to our perforated metals, Pic Perf takes perforated sheets to the next level. By perforating the steel with images, logos, complex shapes and other unique designs, we’re able to add an artistic statement to facades, balustrades, or any other architectural feature. The possibilities are limited only by the imagination of the designer.
Atmosphere – Our atmosphere system provides a visually striking design. Ideal for solar shading or screening, these panels are as functional as they are attractive.
Expanded – Locker’s expanded metal mesh, Australian made has a three dimensional texture and is hugely popular as sun shading that maintains airflow. Our expanded mesh can be installed in a number of interesting ways to provide a facade that is as intricate or as simple as the design calls for.
Hi Light – These aluminium louvres and grates are bright and colourful and have a huge amount of visual appeal. Available in any colour and virtually any size specification, the Hi Light range is ideal for sun shading and privacy screens. The colours make a fantastic impression and can bring something to any design.
While these are our most popular products, this is not our everything we can do. If an architect is looking for something outside of our range, we want to know about it. We have the experience to produce world-class custom metal products for use in any architectural application. To make your vision a reality, contact us today.
