About DDA accessible lockers

What is DDA?

Every public space or facility should be accessible to people with disabilities. It’s one of the most fundamental of human rights – equal access for all. The federal Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1992 provides protection for everyone in Australia against discrimination based on disability. In practice, the law applies in all areas of public life, including access to public premises. When we build spaces, the Disability Discrimination Act comes into play to ensure equal opportunity for people with disabilities.

Who does it cover?

The DDA defines a person with a disability as someone who has ‘a physical and/or mental impairment that has a large and long-term negative effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities’. It’s a broad definition and one that ensures protection for everyone with a disability.

What are DDA compliant lockers?

To be DDA compliant, our lockers have specific reach, depth and height dimensions. Making them functional for people with a physical disability. Our DDA range is not only for wheelchair users. Each product is also designed for walking frame users, people with low mobility or dexterity and people who are vision impaired.

About the Lockin DDA range

Through collaboration with accessibility consultants Equal Access, we’ve developed a new product range that is DDA compliant and meets the human needs of those with disabilities. Our range includes lockers, locks, signage, accessories, and seating.

Space requirements

To create a DDA compliant locker space, you must consider how people with a disability will use the facility as a whole.

Beyond the product itself, we must look at the whole experience, from entry to exit. Space to maneuver or ‘accessible paths of travel’ is an important consideration as is luminance contrast and signage.

Why choose Lockin

With years of experience creating locker facilities, we’ll get the most out of your space.

Custom lockers made to fit

We craft lockers made for life. And, since lockers vary as greatly as the lifestyles of the people who occupy them, we tailor every locker to you and your facility's needs. Want something that's super simple and spacious? Say no more. Looking for something outfitted with a timber bench seat, USB ports, a built-in ironing board unit and shoe shelves? Well, we can do that, too. Looking for something special? We can design and build custom ottomans to complement your space. Choose from timber or upholstered seating and a variety of materials.

Project planning & recommendations

We loath telling you no. So, we don't. During the planning and recommendation phase of your project, we let you dream as big as your budget will allow. We'll take the time to understand what you need, what you're picturing in your mind, and how our products will integrate with the overall design aesthetic of your space. From layout to picking the best locking system to use, the Lockin team is here to help you create a functional space that people won't want to leave. The options are limitless.

Made in Australia using green materials

Lockin is proud to be green and to say that 80% of our Australian manufacturing is powered by solar energy. And each year we stop over 14.2 tonnes of CO2 entering the atmosphere and the lungs of our fellow humans. Continuing with our focus on health, we only use E0 lower formaldehyde panel products in our standard range. Plus every Lockin locker meets the GBCA Greenstar five star rating and LEED platinum requirements. That means you can feel good about choosing Lockin products for even more reasons than their good looks.
