Why this product is so good

Until now, the choice has been between lockers, shelters and open racks. Space for a standard-size shelter was often tight, or low windows needed to be considered. Funding for a row of lockers and a shelter may also have been a problem, which quite often left the planner with only one option – a row of bicycle racks.

While this can be a viable and cost-effective solution, racks do not protect the bikes from the elements and only offer a certain amount of security. Now there is a real alternative – the Cycle-Works VeloStore.

With a maximum height of only 1490mm, it is the ideal solution for many sites.

The racks inside the VeloStore provide the opportunity to lock both wheels and frames to the racks. The bikes are parked on the racks in a high/ low configuration, so can be spaced at 400mm centres. They are still easy to use but offer a much higher density.

The lockable VeloStore uses an integrated 3-point locking mechanism and the door opens upwards with the help of gas struts.

The unit is made from galvanised and powder coated mild steel, which is a weather resistant material. It can be painted in any RAL colour to fit into the surrounding area or to match corporate design and colour.

The unit is fixed onto any smooth hard surface such as concrete, tarmac or paving slabs. The unit is free-standing and then bolted down so that it cannot be moved. It can easily be relocated at a later date.

This compact unit is designed to fit in the width of one standard 2.4m x 4.8m car parking space. Alternatively, two units can be placed side by side across the length of the space.

This unit can be used to help demonstrate compliance with BREEAM and achieve a high BREEAM rating.*
The VeloStore can be used to help contribute towards gaining your 2 ENE8 Cycle Storage Credits when used in an appropriate situation, under the Code for Sustainable Homes.

Layout & Space Requirements

This compact unit is designed to fit in the width of one standard 2.4m x 4.8m car parking space. Alternatively, two units can be placed side by side across the length of the space.

Bollards can be used to prevent cars from parking in the access space, or two units can be installed opposite each other with a 2m gap between them.

Capacity

The standard 2m wide Streetstore parks 4 bicycles per unit. A wider 2.4m unit, which can store 5 bikes, is available on request. Units can be joined together to form a longer row.

Dimensions
  • Height: 1300mm
  • Width: 2000-2200mm

Mounting/Installation

A concrete base is ideal. Flagstones or other hard surfaces are usually adequate too. We can usually install on good level tarmac by using metal base plates.

We are currently looking for pilot sites for the lockable version.

Issues & FAQ
Issues to consider

Security

For open access units, the bikes can be locked to the racks provided. However, accessories, wheels and saddles can still be stolen.

The security bar provides locking points for the bike. However, racks are only as good as the user's lock.

For increased security, a lockable roller shutter door can be supplied. This comes with a high security locking mechanism to give peace of mind.

Alternatively, please see our product range for more long-term secure bicycle parking.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you sell to private households?

Yes, this product is a cost-effective solution for private households

What about maintenance?

For the open access units, there are few moving parts. For the lockable units, some simple maintenance of the roller shutter will be needed, however this should not be difficult. Replacement components are readily available if the rack is damaged, eg by cars or trucks. The units have been designed to allow easy cleaning under and around, by water hoses or normal street cleaning equipment.

Can they be used as homes for the homeless?

If desperate! You would have to sleep across the bumpy racks, and there is only mesh on the sides as protection.
