Materials, Locking Mechanisms & Accessories
Material Options

Nylon coated
An excellent long-lasting finish that is less damaging to the bike's paintwork. Nylon is available in most RAL colours. We recommend this is done in conjunction with galvanising.

Galvanised
'Industrial' looking, but effective protection for 10-15 years.

Stainless steel
A non-rusting material that suits modern surroundings. 'Marine Grade' 316 stainless steel is also available.

Locking Mechanisms & Options

The security bar allows the cyclist to lock the bike frame and wheels with their own chain or D-lock.

Advertising & Branding

The circular space between the top of the rack and the security bar can serve as an advertising panel.

Issues & FAQ
Issues to consider

Security

The Circular rack provides many locking points for a bike.
The racks are only as good as the user’s lock. The bikes are visible to potential thieves and vandals, and they are open to the elements (unless under a shelter). Accessories, wheels, saddles etc can be stolen from them.

Please see our product range for more long-term secure bicycle parking.

Damage to bikes

Like all similar racks, the bike just rests against the rack and the opposite bike. We recommend nylon coating as this offers some protection for the bike’s paintwork.
