Project Scope

Located on the Victorian costal town of the River Clyde in West Scotland, Helensburgh Leisure Centre prides itself on being kitted out with world-leading Technogym facilities.


Their fitness centre houses a variety of over 50 items of gym equipment, and the requirement arose for a storage solution to house all the additional equipment as well as other supplies required for the day-to-day operations.












Catering to both Helensburgh Leisure Centre staff and gym users, 4-tier wall shelving was installed in the fitness centre. These shelves house various equipment and supplies from yoga mats to 15kg weight bags which are to be used daily by staff and members of the public, therefore it was critical in the design that the structure was load bearing.

For optimum strength, the Shelving was both wall and floor fixed in all store areas. This secure fitting ensures that when gym equipment, cleaning supplies, or swimming accessories are being taken and put back, it does not lean forward or topple with the distribution of weight, contributing to the safety of the leisure centre employees and users.

After being approached by Heron Brothers regarding the project, BOYCO travelled to Glasgow to meet with the customer. As a brand trusted to deliver, our support in project management ensured smooth and efficient product delivery and installation.

Bespoke Products

Due to the shelving being in numerous places in Helensburgh Leisure Centre, from the main pool store to cleaner’s store, emphasis was placed on creating a bespoke storage solution that follows BOYCO’s ‘Built to Last’ quality. There was also a requirement for the shelving to contribute positively to the safety as well as aesthetics of the various different areas, whether housing cleaning products or swimming accessories.

As per the BOYCO standard, the timber slats used in the fixed shelving is twice coated with our anti-microbial lacquer. This is formulated to stop bacteria from surviving on its surface, preventing the spread of 99% of all known bacteria. The shelving is a high touch point area for Helensburgh Leisure Centre, being regularly used by staff for collecting, returning, and moving equipment for various fitness sessions. Therefore, the anti-microbial lacquer positively contributes to the overall hygiene of the area.

The fixed shelving metal frame is coated with our ‘Hot Dip’ Nylon. Also offering anti-microbial properties, it provides 500x more abrasion resistance than powdered-coated paint alternatives. Guaranteeing in even high traffic environments, this was perfect for the leisure centre due to the shelving housing frequently used items such as heavy weights, ensuring that the fixed furniture follows our ‘Build to Last’ ethos and continues to be a fantastic looking product.

Project Success

Following the completion of the project, Helensburgh Leisure Centre now houses fantastic storage shelving units for their cleaner’s store, studios, general store, and pool store.

Team BOYCO are delighted to have supplied and delivered a long-lasting solution to the leisure centre and provided improved accessibility to equipment and supplies for staff. We are also proud to have supported Heron Brothers and the local council with this project, and we look forward to working with them again in the future.
