Why Digilock®?

By Mila Adamovica

Timeline of Success

  • The market leader in electronic locks and innovative security solutions.
  • The company that revolutionized the locker room experience.
  • More than 3 million Digilock units are operated daily worldwide.

As global leader, Digilock creates simple-to-use electronic locking solutions through streamlined design and patented technology. We set new standards of excellent quality and solutions that provide flawless operation every time. We support our customers with an exceptional warranty and easy-to-reach technical advisors. Founded in 1981, Digilock introduced the first electronic cabinet lock to the marketplace, changing the lock and locker industry forever. The company’s goal is to make security simplified®, blending science with the artistry that transforms the user experience. Digilock is seen in nearly all the high-end locker rooms in the world offering security and elegance that customers demand. Today, Digilock commands up to 90 percent of the market for electronic locker locks and is the number-one-specified electronic locking solution.

With its first-generation electronic locks, Digilock changed the way users operated their lockers. This series offered a keyless security platform with either shared- or assigned-use functionality. The goal was clear: increase member satisfaction by providing a secure solution that eliminates the need to carry a key.

“Digilock makes security simple,” said Bill Gordon, President and Founder of Digilock, “offering unparalleled security solutions with a focus on style, ease-of-use, and lock management.”

While this innovation was simple and intuitive, it instantly upgraded locker rooms by making them more user-friendly. The shared-use functionality allowed members to walk up to any available locker, enter their self-selected four-digit code, and store their belongings quickly and safely. The experience improved with a push of a button. The assigned-use functionality provided members and VIPs with a keypad-operated solution that eliminated the hassle of keys. The second-generation lock model implemented a time-saving tool that allowed for a complaint-free locker room environment, on the strong belief that the user experience should be problem-free.

Digilock transformed the market by introducing the electronic Manager Key, which improved management access with a single touch. Clubs no longer needed to worry about owner and manager codes, the time required to change such codes, the embarrassment of asking a club member to look away while entering the manager code, or the club member being locked out as the manager code was not programmed correctly. Over the course of time, Digilock designed sleeker, slimmer products focusing on continued simplicity and customization. The third-generation locks featured three security platforms, enhanced electronic Manager Keys with a built-in power override feature, and a variety of body types and finishes.

Digilock began customizing products to fit a wider variety of applications across a multitude of diverse industries. With the current generation, Digilock offers an array of lock models, including cam, solenoid and motorized locks with either a keypad or RFID interface. Digilock also introduced a code-managed lock, providing a perfect solution for smaller breakout facilities such as Pilates or cycling studios with fewer than 20 locker openings. From small boutique studios to large athletic facilities, clubs have more options with Digilock, the company that has changed the landscape of locker rooms worldwide.

Over the past 34 years, Digilock modernized the electronic lock industry with its breakthrough technology and innovative, yet simple-to-use products. Customer service and consistency in providing high-quality products powered Digilock’s rise to prominence. As the industry leader and the original manufacturer of electronic locker locks, Digilock established the highest standards for unparalleled security solutions. Security simplified® is the founding principle and the answer to “Why Digilock”.

The Ride House

The Ride House

One of Digilock’s latest innovations, Celáre® luxury locker line, was launched at the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) trade show, geared to the health and fitness industry. It gave Digilock an opportunity to interact with the audience, to gain the valuable insights on the new product, and to help prioritize features and functionalities for future offerings that resonate most with the customers.

President of The Ride House cycling studio, Parker Williams, learned about Celáre luxury lockers at IHRSA, and was so impressed by their high-end feel and functionality, that he decided to design his studio in colors and themes represented in the Celáre lockers. Opening a new indoor cycling and fitness studio with luxurious spa aesthetics was a challenge that Parker Williams and his team took very seriously. They knew that “careful planning was necessary to be successful in this mecca for fitness and design”. Their goal was “to unite the physical and the emotional, and to create an exhilarating experience for their clients of all fitness levels.” To accomplish this goal, Parker reached out to Barbara Hoots, President at Indoor Cycle Design, specializing in creating innovative environments that lead to increased membership, retention and profitability. As a result of their team efforts, The Ride House, a boutique cycle and fitness studio, was successfully opened on February 14, 2015 in Dallas, and got immediate attention from the fitness connoisseurs.

Parker Williams is convinced that “there is no reason why fitness cannot have a luxury feeling.” The studio features concert quality sound, mirrored lighting, and custom black glass Celáre lockers in 3-tier and 6-tier configuration. Gray-toned floors, unique mirror effect, and smoked crystal chandeliers complete the look. According to Barbara Hoots, “the green, gray and white accent colors were to highlight the healthy lifestyle of Dallas’ health-conscious markets, restaurants, and the Katy Trail nearby”.

Parker was the first studio owner to request the lockers as the anchor to his design: “Celáre pretty much says it all…let’s just build the studio around them.” The décor was selected to showcase the Celáre lockers. Parker wanted a space that felt like “home away from home” and was warm and inviting yet maintained the elegance and sophistication of his vision. “It was a light bulb moment and the synergy flowed freely when he requested black Celáre lockers and chandeliers throughout the space,” described Barbara. Celáre embodied the design vision of The Ride House.

Celáre lockers with glass doors feature dual-layer tempered glass, mounted on euro soft-close hinges, and heavy gauge steel bodies with integral frames. Solid metal frames and variety of color and size combinations allow Celáre to create a unique customized look to satisfy any style preferences and decorating taste, and meet the strict functionality requirements for various environments.

Lockers no longer need to hide in the back room, they have become the stand-out pieces. Celáre is beauty, artistry, functionality and security simplified®.

If you are thinking about improving member recruitment and retention at your fitness facility, try maximizing your gym security and providing an exceptional locker room experience. Many gyms overlook this crucial area. Club members want to know that their gym has the latest and greatest, both in equipment and safety. -Tweet That! They are looking for security, simplicity, luxury and innovation. Here are the steps you need to take to transform your locker room into a place where artistry and science come together: –Tweet That!

1. Technology Security Tips

Every aspect of environment and operation impacts the experience your facility provides. Locker rooms are worth investing in. You can install the latest models of electronic locks: cam, solenoid, or motorized locks with shared-use and assigned-use functionalities to provide a worry-free experience to fitness club management, members and visitors. A keyless electronic lock is the most reliable solution: instead of a key, users lock their belongings by punching in a self-selected code, or by using the radio frequency identification (RFID) credential. The sleek and stylish keyless lock eliminates the necessity to carry a key while attending a fitness class, or a training session.

Today you can choose from multiple lock body styles, interfaces, functionalities and latch options to match your facility’s application. With a precision focus on style, ease-of-use and lock management, modern locks create a problem-free environment and deliver exceptional experiences that drive up your club attendance and club performance numbers. To establish a trustworthy community, you could show that you care about your club members’ safety by offering them the best locker room security solution that you can afford.

2. Aesthetics and Luxury Tips

Fitness clubs can give more to their customers by paying attention to design details and making the locker room space as comfortable and unique as possible. You can create a private, softly-lighted area, with a TV, a magazine stand, a comfortable seating area and aromatherapy. You should also consider enhancing user experience by installing the state-of-the-art lockers to move your club locker rooms to the next level with luxurious style and sophistication. Lockers can be much more than the plain and old-fashioned metal doors. Modern door options include enamel glazed steel, shatter resistant tempered glass and phenolic with euro-soft close hinges in an array of options and finishes to complement the facilities décor.

By taking these vital gym security and aesthetic steps, you will build a safe and luxurious environment.
