Why this product is so good
The Solent compound is very popular with schools, councils and employers as it combines a sleek rounded design with affordable prices.
The bikes are protected from the elements, while the lockable gates stop intruders from gaining access to the bicycles. A covered walkway can also be added for further weather protection.
In addition, we have replaced the standard Sheffield stand with our popular Rounded A racks, as we believe that these offer better security than standard racks without a security bar. They are also more elegant and take up less space when not in use.
This cycle shelter can be used to help demonstrate compliance with BREEAM and achieve a high BREEAM rating.*
This cycle shelter 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.

Materials, Locking Mechanisms & Accessories
These shelters are made of galvanised and powder coated mild steel. The cladding is manufactured from 5mm UV stable, shatterproof, impact-resistant and non-combustible translucent PET material. We can also offer Alupanel cladding.
Locking Mechanisms & Options
The cyclist can lock the bike frame and wheels to the rounded A rack with their own chain or D-lock. The gates are supplied with hasps for use with a padlock.
An optional covered walkway can be added to all compounds. This gives further weather protection and enhanced security.

Issues to consider
Although the lockable gates provide security from intruders, the shelters do not provide individual parking. Should this be required, please have a look at our individual bicycle lockers.

Do you sell to private households?
