Earlier this year, the Bank of England released a new, 12-sided pound coin in to circulation. Now 6 months down the line, as consumers we’re experiencing problems everywhere – supermarkets, gym changing rooms and even when parking the car. Although there was an initial 6 month period to phase out the old pound coin, it appears that not everywhere is quite up to speed.
Initially, the new pound coin ran into some teething problems, as it emerged that not all ticket vending machines, and supermarket trolleys have yet been adapted to accept it. As well as phone booths, laundrettes and lockers. Now that the old pound coin has officially phased out, most of the above list have been adapted, however we’re still receiving many enquiries In regards to lockers. Whether they’re in the work place, or the gym changing rooms, the new £1 coin will not operate existing £1 coin locks.
Rosehill will soon be offering a supply and fit service to replace your existing coin lock with a new dual-use lock. Alternatively, you can purchase new lockers and choose the most suitable lock type for your establishment. For more information or a quotation, contact our sales team today on 0161 485 1717.
