Power up at your locker
ECA by Dekko launches Sto-Way, power and device charging for lockers in schools, health clubs, transit stations, hospitals, workspaces and more
GARRETT, INDIANA, USA – February 2020 – Power and data supply leader ECA by Dekko announces the launch of Sto-Way, a power and charging solution that’s a first for lockers – including new and already installed lockers in a range of environments.
Lockers that already have power typically have adopted a multi-circuit system. Sto-Way is different: It’s designed to meet the specific needs of lockers with its unique ability to route electric cables either internal or external to the storage space, coupled with in-field maintenance that doesn’t require any disassembly of the locker.
Compatible with ECA’s daisy chain system, Sto-Way is capable of powering one or two circuits from a single power infeed, which allows for runs twice as long as a single-circuit system – this lets designers maximize locker-run lengths while reducing the supporting infrastructure.
In other words, multiple units can link together, locker-to-locker, from a single infeed. Distance between each unit can be adjusted to accommodate locker widths. Unsightly cables remain concealed. Corded models are also available for installations where daisy chaining is not needed.
Sto-Way puts secure and personal charging power in arm’s reach. Specifiers can choose from five different power and USB configurations to deliver the best options for the locker space. Options include 2 power (120 VAC), 2 power with USB A or USB AC or USB C; or 2 power with GFCI.
“Sto-Way was developed specifically for lockers. The product reshapes conventional locker usage, transforming each space from just a storage compartment to a personal charging station for your phone or computer, and a place to plug in personal-care items such as a hair dryer or electric shaver,” Dekko Marketing Director Meghan Meier said.
Adaptable to new and existing lockers, Sto-Way can be surface or recessed mounted to the locker interior.
The surface-mount model adds a fun flare to existing locker interiors. With this model, the rear of the locker can be flush to the wall, as all system components are internal to the locker. It’s an excellent option for tight spaces and retrofit opportunities.
Sto-Way’s recessed-mount model provides a sleek and sophisticated aesthetic whatever the locker construction, whether wood or metal. Its composition integrates seamlessly with the locker interior. Requiring space behind the locker for housing and wiring, the recessed model allows for maximum internal space and a clean appearance inside the locker.
Sto-Way surface’s cover can be altered to fit a wide range of locker sizes. The cover can be adjusted to fit specific locker geometry, ensuring a clean look and concealing the connecting cables from view.
Sto-Way is available in standard colors Graphite Grey, Black and Gloss White. Custom colors are also possible.
Sto-Way’s all-steel construction and durable powder-coat finish ensure a long work life. Adding to Sto-Way’s user-friendly design is ease of maintenance. Any field work can be done without dismantling the locker.
“All kinds of environments will benefit from Sto-Way – schools, health and athletic clubs, airports, stadiums, train and bus stations, hospitals, workspaces – anywhere there are lockers,” Meier said.
