The power to create great changing spaces

Craſtsman Lockers are leading space planners in the design and supply of great changing rooms that enhance the leisure experience. Our innovative approach to matching

provision with customers’ ever-rising expec- tations for high quality facilities enables us to deliver changing areas that can meet evolving requirements and that have the capability to stay pristine in even the most

demanding of environments. Creating sensitively-designed, great places

to change is about understanding the client’s needs, as well as those of their members. Tat’s why we ensure we build long-

lasting relationships as part of a powerful working philosophy across private and pub- lic sectors, that caters for all operational models from high-end to low-cost.
