Steel on screen

It’s perhaps surprising just how many steel lockers you see on your TV screen day in, day out, but our national penchant for police and hospital dramas in particular means that lockers are needed almost constantly for the many scenes set in changing rooms as characters have intimate conversations or take time to reflect on their latest case.

At Midland Steel Equipment, we’re proud to regularly supply lockers for use on television in both dramas and advertising. Our steel lockers have appeared in some of the biggest shows around as well as some of the most talked about ads, so here’s a selection of some of their starring roles.


Series 2 of Broadchurch was one of the most hotly anticipated ITV crime dramas in ages and our single door lockers featured right there in Episode 1. They featured in a scene with Olivia Coleman’s Ellie Miller, helping give an accurate depiction of a police station changing rooms.

Holby City

Holby City is one of the best loved hospital dramas in the UK and there are regularly scenes between the various Holby medical staff set in the changing rooms. The lockers in these scenes are our very own two door lockers in 71 x 12 x 12 and help create the right atmosphere for the space.


Midland Steel Equipment’s lockers also appeared in the penultimate series of Lewis, the sequel spin-off to the timeless Inspector Morse. Our lockers appeared in the series opener, “Entry Wounds,” and, again, created a perfect changing room environment to really set the scene.

Halifax advert: “Linda Turner - our kind of person”

It’s not just television drama that we’ve featured in, we’ve also appeared in many well known TV ads. When Halifax launched their “our kind of person” ads to promote their current accounts, our lockers appeared in the one about Linda Turner, featuring in the start of the ad to help depict the staff locker room at a large DIY store and showing Linda getting set for the day ahead.

O2 Priority advert — “More for you”

Very recently, we featured in a high profile ad for O2 Priority’s services. Our lockers are right there in a scene where the ad’s main character is getting changed after a workout, helping to set a gym locker room scene.

Warburtons advert — “The Deliverers”

Perhaps one of our favourite TV appearances is our lockers’ role in Warburtons excellent “The Deliverers” TV advert from last year, starring none other than Hollywood legend Sylvester Stallone. The action star can be seen using our steel lockers as he prepares to deliver fresh bread to the nation — and packs his sandwiches of course!
