Bicycle Lockers for the Ultimate security and convenience
Bike lockers provide long-term ‘Security Level A’ bike storage for the ultimate secure bike parking facility.
Bicycle storage lockers provide AS2890.3’s highest security level with protection from theft, vandalism, and inclement weather to encourage cycling as a means of transportation.
Ideal for bike rooms and EOT facilities to encourage people to cycle to work or from home, bike lockers can also play an important role in city transit planning by locating publicly accessible lockers at transit interchanges.
Due to the high cost of manufacturing and shipping, bicycle lockers are typically specified only when required for development approval.
There can be a significant differences in locker styles and prices. When researching product options, keep in mind the end user and where the lockers will be located to ensure the bike locker model selected in not over or under engineered.
Bike lockers located within indoor bike rooms might not required the same heavy duty, weather proof construction of bike lockers located in outdoor public areas such as bus and train stations. Double sided bike lockers can offer a lower cost per bike space than single side lockers.
Also think about the most appropriate locking option for each project. For a low cost, low management solution a simple latch allowing a user supplied U-lock to secure the bicycle locker door may be sufficient. Where a property manager requires more control, a key system can be considered but there will need to be a key management system put in place. Other locking option include electronic keypads or RFID swipe cards that allow easy management and no lost keys to deal with. For public locations where opportunistic parking is desired, a new Bluetooth controlled option is now available that provides the bike locker owner with full control on how each locker can be used – for an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly fee, or membership etc.
