Keep on top of trends in commercial bike storage
Liking Bike Storage’s Facebook page is a great way to get a snapshot of developments in the bicycle parking and cycle infrastructure fields, nationally and internationally.
As bicycles are increasingly being used as a commuting mode globally, architects, developers, governments and builders are having to broaden their knowledge about what makes for successful bicycle storage.
Bike Storage is about more than bike racks
It’s no longer just about installing a few bike racks. It’s about ensuring that the racks support the bicycle in two places and provide multiple locking points for the frame and wheels of the bicycle. Bike racks also need to follow correct spacing to allow for ease of access. Secure bicycle cages are fast replacing standalone and expensive bike lockers as a high security and more affordable bike parking solution. Commercial bicycle pumps are an example of another trend in bicycle infrastructure that is value adding for cyclists.
Australian Standards for bicycle parking
Many people aren't aware that there are Australian Standards covering bicycle storage. Australian Standard AS2890.3 covers bicycle parking facilities and gives guidance on issues that can either make or break a bike storage area in a workplace, school or transport hub. The standards cover concepts like spacing, aisle width, placement, visibility, security, lighting. This standard is currently under review.
Bike Storage is continuously innovating its Australian Standards compliant bicycle racks and bike cages, and setting the benchmark in the bicycle parking industry.
