BICYCLE PARKING RACKS GUIDE
Due to the large and sometimes confusing range of outdoor bike racks, our qualified team can help you out with a guide. In the following are all the information listed you need, in order to choose the right product:
- Location: Bike parking should be visible and close (50’ or 15 m) to the entrance it serves. Additionally, it should be weather-protected and located in a lighted area to ensure day and night use during the whole year.
- Security: It is important to make sure that bike floor racks are sturdy and well-anchored. This way, they will be truly efficient against bicycle theft or deterioration.
- Installation of floor bike stands:
- Concrete is the best and least expensive surface material for a variety of rack types and installation methods. Both in-ground and surface mounted work well on concrete and can be installed very easy.
- Freestanding parking racks are recommended for other hard surfaces such as asphalt, pavers or tile. They may or may not be suitable for a surface-mounted option. Factors affecting the suitability of these materials include the thickness of the surface material, the make-up of the below-grade material and the climate.
- For organic and loose materials such as dirt and grass, you will need bicycle parking racks with a freestanding option, or you may adapt concrete footings to anchor the bike rack system down.
WHAT CRITERIA YOU SHOULD CONSIDER CHOOSING YOUR BIKE PARKING
- Supports bike upright without putting stress on wheels: The outdoor bike racks should provide two points of contact with the frame – at least 6” apart horizontally. But if it cradles a bicycle’s wheel, it should also secure the frame at one point or more. The rack’s high point should be at least 32”.
- Allows locking of frame and at least, one wheel with a U-lock: A closed loop should allow a single U-lock to capture one wheel and a closed section of the bike frame. Tubes with a cross section larger than 2” can complicate the use of smaller U-locks.
- Provides security and longevity features appropriate for the intended location: Steel and stainless steel are common and appropriate materials for most general floor bike stands. Use tamper-resistant mounting hardware in vulnerable locations. Outdoor bike racks finishing must be appropriate to the location.
- Bike racks use is intuitive: First-time users should recognize the location as bicycle parking rack and should be able to use it as intended without the need for written instructions.
