Kit lockers, drying units, bike repair stations, folding bike lockers, and more
Ensuring you park and store as many bicycles is vital, but supporting the active travel of your employees, residents, or visitors can be achieved in other ways, too.
Thinking about building design to focus on clear access to the bike store is a good start. Where possible, it’s best to minimise heavy doors and tight corridors. Adding wayfinding and graphics can transform darker, cold rooms into pleasant, welcoming spaces.
If your storage is external, there’s no need to hide it away. With green roofing and different cladding options, cycle shelters can form part of—and add to—the existing architecture.
Bike repair stations occupy little space but offer anyone cycling big benefits. Because they allow people to fix and tune their bicycles, this will reduce abandonment. With custom branding options and a range of colours, they also stand as a testament to active travel support.
Folding bike lockers provide space efficient storage for an already space efficient bike. Like bike repair stations, they’re available in custom colours and are a simple but effective addition.
Kit lockers and drying cupboards can help turn parking areas into useful stores for not just cyclists, but runners and gym-goers too. Lockers for helmets, backpacks and changes of clothes mean avoiding carrying excess baggage to your desk.
With clever vertical wall-rack design, wayfinding, lockers and repair facilities you can ensure even with limited space you’re able to provide the right facilities to encourage active travel at your building.
