This compound is made of two Solent bike shelters facing each other, with lockable gates between them. The minimum standard size is 20 bikes, but shorter compounds for fewer bikes can also be made to order. There is no maximum length for this, as the cycle shelters are modular.

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.

Issues & FAQ

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you sell to private households?

Not really for this product, simply because we have found that other products are more suitable and cost-effective for home storage.

What about maintenance?

Easy. Replacement components are readily available if the shelter is damaged, e.g. by cars or lorries. Replacement PET panels can be ordered and installed by us.
