A decade ago a novel idea, folding bikes are now seen on roads and cycle paths up and down the UK.
Brompton bikes, as they’re known to many, are easily folded down into a briefcase shape that’s easily carried up stairs and onboard trains.
The best thing about them? They’re easy to store, occupying a fraction of that space of a regular bike. So, why then would we need folding bike lockers?
Firstly, what are they? Similar to kit lockers, folding bike lockers stack into a compact unit that occupies little space. Three units high and as long as required, they sit flush against the wall.
The lockers can be fitted with different lock types – either key-turn, key-pad, or a latch for padlocks. This means they work securely for office and residential use, but also in public spaces where users can bring their own combination lock.
Each locker holds one folding bike, giving personal storage and additional security.
Folding bike lockers don’t have to be dull either, and come in a range of colours to suit the custom branding of any building or public space. In fact, they often add the biggest splash of colour to a bike store.
Helping attract tenants through good-looking bike parking stores is becoming increasingly important. Folding bike lockers provide both extra amenities while allowing for bright customisable branding.
