Phone Safe comes with plastic doors and locks. The system features individual components accessible through a central door, making it easier for teachers or safeguarding staff to monitor and manage mobile phone storage.

Two unnamed distributors from Hull and Coventry have placed orders for the installation of Phone Safe during the Easter holidays.

Richard Williams, CEO of Locit, based in Deeside, said the design addressed concerns raised by educators and parents regarding the distraction and security risk posed by mobile phones in schools.

"We understand the challenges schools face in managing mobile phone usage among students," Williams said. "These devices are no longer seen as a luxury but a necessity, allowing children to remain connected with parents and carers. They are safety devices for users that must always be carried.”

"Our solution provides a secure storage option and promotes a distraction-free learning environment, allowing teachers to focus on delivering quality education.

“Furthermore, the new lockers will address the loss and theft of expensive mobile phones and other personal devices that students carry to school."

The new locker designs come in nests of three, four and five, catering to classrooms of 24, 32, and 40 students in one place. The 10mm clear door will allow students to see their devices being stored without the worry of them being tampered with and provide peace of mind that no one has access to their device and personal data.

The designs are adaptable and come in every colour to fit any room decor. Another key feature is that these lockers are customisable to have charging plug points, which are usually more sought after in a corporate setting.

Williams added: "We've developed several designs based on school feedback and requirements. Every student's phone will remain safely stored throughout the day. This eliminates the stress and distractions associated with mobile phones in classrooms while offering peace of mind to both students and parents."

Williams believes the Phone Safe solution goes beyond the education sector.    

"We envision Phone Safe as a versatile solution that can address similar challenges in various settings, including corporate offices and factories," Williams said.
