Safe Space, supplier of lockers and changing room solutions to the fitness and leisure industry, has been a chosen supplier to boutique fitness studio operator TRIB3 since 2016, installing changing facilities at eight TRIB3 studios so far across the UK and Europe.
Most recently, Safe Space completed the design and installation of the changing rooms at TRIB3 Edinburgh, a new corporately-owned site and the brand’s first studio in Scotland, which opened in May. TRIB3 Edinburgh is part of the iconic Raeburn Place development in Stockbridge. The site, which is known as the birthplace of international rugby, is currently undergoing major work in keeping with its sporting heritage, to establish a new hub for the community.
Tasked with designing a changing room concept for the Edinburgh studio in line with the operator’s distinct look and feel, Safe Space’s solution incorporated 32 two-tier lockers with keyless locking mechanisms, utilising perforated sheet metal in black for the doors to align with the brand’s industrial style.
As part of the work with TRIB3, Safe Space also advised on the design of the overall changing area, in order to maximise space and ensure that the facilities matched the premium experience that TRIB3 is renowned for.
“We want every visit to a TRIB3 store to be a unique and unforgettable experience. Our ethos and customer journey focuses on ‘prepare, sweat and recover’, with the changing facilities being a big part of that,” explained Kevin Yates, CEO of TRIB3.
“Over the years, in working with Safe Space, we’ve evolved and developed our locker room offering, exploring new product and design developments, and the support and advice from the Safe Space team has been invaluable. They’ve delivered our vision for every store, on time and on budget and, crucially, achieving the unique look and feel that’s central to the TRIB3 brand.
“The Edinburgh site is particularly significant as our first in Scotland and one of our largest stores; we’re really happy with the outcome.”
Following the recent install at TRIB3 Edinburgh, Safe Space was awarded a new 10-site supplier agreement to support the roll-out of new corporately-owned and franchise sites across the UK and overseas.
