Materials, Locking Mechanisms & Accessories

Material Options
This sturdy locker is made from 1.5mm steel – for comparison, most cars are 0.8mm. The heavy duty version features 2.0mm steel doors.
The doors and end panels are coated in a choice of 2 standard colours, British Racing Green (RAL 6005) and Oxford Blue (RAL 5003). All other surface are supplied in a galvanised finish, but coloured back panels are available at an extra charge. For large orders, the doors can be painted in a special colour scheme or corporate colours.

Locking Mechanisms & Options
The cyclist uses their own padlock to lock the door. An override mechanism then allows the operator to obtain independent access to the locker when necessary.
This is especially relevant for security-sensitive areas where spot-checks need to be carried out.
A key operated lock is also available.

Every locker is equipped with a clothes hook on the inside of the door to store waterproofs, helmets and other kit.

Additional Extras

  • Helmet lockers
  • Extended back panel – to fit larger bikes
  • Coloured back panel – if the back of the lockers is on view
  • Upgrade to Heavy Duty Locker: 2mm strengthening tie bars within doors, 2mm doors, extra kicking plate
  • 75mm Disc padlock, punch numbered keys with numbered locker

Advertising & Branding
Advertising can be attached easily to the end panels.


Ease of use
BikeAway lockers are quick, safe and easy to use. They have been installed in many schools, where the children are happy and able to use them. Most children can store a bike in a BikeAway in about 10 seconds. Should you nevertheless prefer to install horizontal lockers, please have a look at the other products in our locker range.

The BikeAway locker is a sturdy and secure locker, however, it is only as good as the padlock used. Therefore, we recommend using a strong padlock.
