Why this product is so good

The Solent shelter 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 on three sides, while lockable gates stop intruders from gaining access to the bicycles.

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 rounded and take up less space when not in use. We also use 5mm PET UVg, as it is more durable than the standard 3mm or 4mm PET used as standard by most other companies.

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.
