How much do food lockers cost?

Key factors that influence the overall price of a food lockers station

Number of served users

The number of users the food locker station can accommodate is a crucial factor in determining its cost. More users means more doors, more locks, more electronics and cabling, more quality testing. All these factors influence the final cost of the hardware and the after-sales costs and proactive maintenance as well.

Size of compartments

The size of compartments within the food locker station directly affects the cost. Larger compartments require more materials for construction, including sturdy walls, doors, and shelving systems.

Optional features

Optional features like glass doors, self-closing doors, internal lights and vinyls can enhance the functionality and aesthetics of the food locker station. However, these features may increase the cost of the investment.

Software Integration

If a software integration is needed, for example, with a web shop or inventory management system, it can impact the cost of the food locker station. The complexity of the integration and the specific requirements of the software will influence the overall cost..


Our food lockers are eco friendly

Eco-friendly refrigerants

Ultra-Low GWP

Well ahead of the European 2030 roadmap, all our products use R290 natural refrigerant gas (Propane).

R290 is classified as a hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerant, which is a natural, non-toxic refrigerant and the top alternative to hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants.

  • Ultra-Low GWP (Global Warming Potential).
  • Zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential).
  • Due to its eco-friendly properties, it’s projected to have long-term approval as a commercial refrigerant.

Energy saving materials

+88% performance in insulation*

Our food lockers are insulated with Phenolic Foam panels with thermal conductibility limited to W/m.k 0,018 (EN 13166 ) instead of W/m.k 0,034 of polyurethane foams, which are commonly used in the refrigeration industry.

* Thermal insulation = 1 / thermal conductivity

Continuous monitoring

Consumption measuring and alarms

All our food lockers are remotely controlled using the IoT (internet of things) approach. Operating parameters and performances are monitored, recorded, and displayed on the client dashboard. Alert messages are sent in case of unexpected energy consuming conditions.

Low end-of-life impact

Designed for Disassembly (DfD)

At our company, designing for recycling is a top priority. Every product is thoughtfully crafted with its end-of-life in mind, ensuring easy dismantling for efficient material separation. This process is called Designed for Disassembly. Specifically, we do the following things:

  • We do not use polyurethane injection, which glues insulation to metal making end-of-cycle separation very hard.
  • We use separable insulating panels instead.
  • We do not use welding but rivets instead, allowing dismantle times shorter: 45 minutes to separate all components into reusable/recyclable parts.

Energy efficiency

Our food lockers are designed to be energy-efficient, using smart temperature control systems and low-energy consumption features, reducing overall energy usage compared to conventional refrigeration systems in stores.

As food lockers decrease the number of customers visiting physical stores, there will be less traffic congestion and associated air pollution from vehicle emissions.


Minimal food waste

With click and collect food lockers, customers can plan their orders more effectively, reducing the likelihood of impulsive or excessive purchases and subsequent food waste.


shorter supply chains

Food lockers promote short supply chains with organic practices, encouraging local sourcing, reduced packaging, and support for the local economy.


Optimal inventory management

Our food lockers can be integrated with inventory management systems, allowing retailers to better monitor stock levels and reduce food waste by ensuring that products are fresh and not overstocked.
