Why This Product is so Good
The classic Sheffield stand is a simple and cost-effective solution for your bicycle parking requirements.
This rack is available with an optional horizontal security bar. This bar means that the user is encouraged to lock the bicycle frame and front wheel to the rack. Mountain bikes and smaller children’s bikes in particular benefit from the additional locking points.
In addition, the horizontal bar makes the rack much less susceptible to cutting through and so provides enhanced security. The bar is also able to carry identification or advertising.
This cycle rack can be used to help demonstrate compliance with BREEAM and achieve a high BREEAM rating.*
This cycle rack 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
Racks should be spaced so that users can access their bikes easily, which is usually between 800mm and 1000mm apart.
Each rack parks two bicycles – one on each side.
- Standard width: 800mm wide
- Standard height: 800mm high
- Other dimensions available, some at no extra cost
- Tubing outside diameter 48mm
- Other options are available
- Optional horizontal bar 300mm from the top
Racks can be embedded into concrete to a depth of 300mm.
Surface mounted racks are bolted to good quality concrete with 100mm x m10 or m12 bolts, with 4 bolts to each leg.
Toast racks are supplied welded to rails in multiples of 2, 3 or 4 hoops and are bolted to the ground through the rails with 110mm x m12 bolts.
- Galvanised finish
- ‘Industrial’ looking but effective protection for 10-15 years.
- Galvanised and powder coated finishRacks can be coated in most RAL colours.
- 304 Stainless steelA non-rusting material that suits modern surroundings. ‘Marine Grade’ 316 stainless steel is also available.
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 like wheels, lights and computers 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 powder coating as this offers some protection for the bike’s paintwork.
