Improve Bike Storage with a Two-Tier Bike Rack

July 15, 2022

When it comes to encouraging your staff to utilise active transportation to and from work, having ample bike storage is the best place to start. As a result, we wanted to highlight some of the most basic ways organisations and businesses can improve bike storage to promote a happier, healthier workplace. The bike storage facilities at your workplace, such as a Two Tier Bike Rack, will make all the difference. 

Offices and organisations should encourage more employees to bike to work by improving cycling amenities.

Encouraging your staff to be more active may also improve their health and well-being while enhancing productivity. So, here are some suggestions for enhancing employee and corporate bike storage facilities.

Install a bike repair station

If you arrive at work with a flat tyre, you may need to take a taxi home or return the next day to pick up the bike. Worse, the bike may be abandoned completely, squandering valuable parking space.

Bike repair stations and pumps allow riders to tune up their bikes, check tyre pressures, replace flat tyres, and conduct a variety of other repairs.

We cannot emphasise enough how important weatherproofing is!

Two Tier Bike Rack will protect the bike from the severe British weather. When you keep a bike in one of our Two Tier Bike Racks in a garage or under a shelter, you will keep it in a strong and sturdy place – ensuring it is safe from the elements. After all, a Two Tier Bike Rack should be easy to use!

There are many types of bike racks available nowadays

The Two Tier Bike Rack – With Gas Strut (BDS) has long been our best-selling bike rack. It remains a popular option due to its ease of use and easily accessible locking points. The new two-tier arrangement allows for more bicycles to store in a smaller space.

Some two-tier systems appear to be dangerous to use. However, for your peace of mind, we provide a gas strut to make lifting easier and rubber supports to safeguard the bike. As a result, you can be confident that the Two Tier Bike Rack – With Gas Strut (BDS) is a high-quality option.

Accessibility is essential

Even the greatest two-tier bike shelter will be unpopular with users if they must climb many flights of stairs, pass through several doors, or go through multiple gates to access it.

Winding corridors leading to a cold, concrete basement or spotting a couple of decrepit bike racks behind the bins may be unsettling for first-time commuters. Instead, workplaces should provide easily accessible parking for bikers. This includes clear signs, visible graphics, and well-lit access. Adding lights and signage to older facilities, as well as making bike parking more appealing.

These simple steps are what inspire commuters to ride their bikes to work more regularly and to use the accessible bike storage.
