Why this Product is so Good
These space-efficient lockers can be arranged in many different layouts, which can often be decided on site by our experienced installation team.
The simplest is in one long row or interlocking lockers with access from both sides. However, the lockers can also fit neatly into a corner to form a quarter circle, semi-circle or even a complete wheel. They can also be arranged in waves or doubled back to back to give a modern, funky look.
The unique stylish shape means that the Velo-Safe has a small footprint and can therefore fit into corners and areas that would not normally accommodate a locker. The bicycle is wheeled in backwards and the handlebar twisted to the side, which uses less space than if the bike was stored in a straight line.
The modern rounded locker design blends in well in all surroundings, and as the lockers can be coated in many different RAL colours, they can be matched to fit your colour scheme or to blend in with buildings and nature.
This cycle locker can be used to help demonstrate compliance with BREEAM and achieve a high BREEAM rating.*
It can also 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.
The Cycle-Works team who installs the lockers are polite, courteous and knowledgeable, willing to comply with all the necessary admin and legislative paperwork that comes with a site like ours.
The design allows easy placement in the most obscure of places, allowing the use of otherwise dead space to be put to good ‘green’ use, whilst larger installations also look inviting and elegant.
I have always been impressed with the simplicity of design of both the Velo-Safe locker and its locking mechanism. They are strong enough to resist attack, yet easy to maintain in the harsh environment we have here, right on the coast.

Layout & Space Requirements
The lockers can be arranged in one long row or interlocking with access from both sides.
Lockers can also be installed in a quarter circle, semi-circle or full circle. Single lockers can be installed where space is tight.
What makes the Velo-Safe locker unique is its patented shape. This shape means that lockers can be combined in many combinations to fit as many bike spaces as possible into a wide variety of different spaces.
The design of the Velo-Safe is based on a triangle with an 18° angle between the two long sides. This means that 5 Velo-Safe lockers fit into a 90° quarter circle. This allows Velo-Safe lockers to fit neatly into corners.
10 Velo-Safes can be arranged in a 180° semi-circle, which is a great arrangement against flat walls. The Velo-Safe design typically fits 2 more lockers into a semicircular design than a line of traditional lockers.
Velo-Safe lockers can be arranged into a full circle comprised of 20 individual lockers. The diameter of the circle is 5.2 metres. An additional space around the circle of 1.2 metres is needed all round for access.
Velo-Safe lockers can be placed back to back to form a line with access on both sides.
Lockers can be arranged side by side in a simple line if required. Small triangular cover plates are available to close the gap that forms in the back when installed against a wall.
For long narrow spaces, a saw tooth configuration using banks of 1, 2 or 3 lockers can be created. The shape of the Velo-Safe means that the rows of lockers can be closely spaced without causing a problem with access to the lockers behind them.
Interesting architectural effects are possible with the Velo-Safe. One example is to alternate groups of 3 Velo-Safe lockers to create an attractive wave design.
Each Velo-Safe locker stores one bike.
- Height: 1900mm
- Width: 780mm wide at the from, narrowing to 260mm at the back
- Height: 1200mm

- The Series 35 has no ‘shear line’, with its associated susceptibility to picking and bumping.

Advertising & Branding
The end panels of the lockers are normally blank but can have a large cycle image for identification.
Other corporate logos or a large advertising panel can be fitted instead, if required. The front door of the Velo-Safe is also ideal for branding and corporate logos. For example, Chester is a demonstration Cycling City, so their lockers feature their eye-catching logo.
