What you Should Know Before Installing a Semi Vertical Bike Rack

January 21, 2022

The Semi Vertical Bike Rack is a durable and cost-effective way to save space. 

What is the Semi Vertical Bike Rack

The Semi Vertical Bike Rack is intended to make the most use of limited space. Our Semi Vertical Bike Rack is galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 standards and may be used both indoors and outside. With the addition of the locking hoop, users may connect both the wheel and the frame to the rack, offering increased security. They are used frequently in commercial locations such as basements, parking garages, and bike locker rooms.

Bike Dock Solutions explain why they are so brilliant.


As the bike rack is semi-vertical, it can be staggered in height with just 305mm of centre space. Furthermore, because of the staggered heights, you may park the bikes closer together than on traditional racks, which is very beneficial in compact places, for example, beneath your staircase at home or at work.

Where can I put my semi-vertical bike rack?

Anywhere. It is waterproof and may be used both indoors and outdoors in parking lots, offices, garages, sheds, and pathways.


The Semi Vertical Bike Rack has three locking points. The front and rear wheels, as well as the centre frame. We can add a locking bar in the centre of the bike rack, allowing bikers to use D locks there.

It’s strong

This rack is composed of solid steel with a galvanised finish, making it extremely sturdy and long-lasting.

Simple to construct

It is delivered flat-packed, allowing it to fit through any doorway. We do offer a schematic that illustrates how to assemble the rack. All that remains is to put the frame together, attach the bike racks, and bolt into the floor (if desired), and you’re done!

Simple to use and suitable for many sorts of bikes (excluding trikes!)

It’s quite simple to use. All you have to do is roll the bike up and place the front wheel on the track. This rack is designed such that it does not need to be attached to the rack; it will just balance on the track. The Semi Vertical Bike Rack is compatible with all bikes and tyre thicknesses, even the largest mountain bike tyres.

Here’s an example of a few Semi Vertical Bike Racks we made for the Canary Wharf Group. A write up on our company can be found in the Guardian here.

Another space-saving Bike Rack is the Two Tier Bike Rack, which allows for two levels of bikes, doubling the capacity in restricted spaces.
