The Semi Vertical Bike Rack

March 14, 2016

The Semi Vertical Bike Rack is a tough and affordable space saving rack. As it’s one of our best sellers, it deserves a post all on its own!


Space Efficiency

It is VERY space efficient. As the bikes are stored semi vertically (you’ll see what I mean if you look at the photo!) and at staggered heights, the bikes can be stored with only 305mm centre spacing. The staggered heights mean the bikes can be parked closer to each other than other typical racks, which can be quite important in tight places such as under your stairs at home or in the office.


Where can the semi vertical bike rack be installed?

Anywhere! It is durable enough to be installed outside or inside. In car parks, offices, garages, sheds or pavements.



The Semi Vertical Bike Rack offers 3 locking points. For the front and back wheel, and the centre frame. We can apply a locking bar on the centre of the bike rack so cyclists can apply their D lock there.


It’s tough!

Made from thick steel with a galvanised finish, this rack is very resilient and will last for decades.


Easy to assemble

It arrives flat packed so it will fit through any doorways. We do provide a drawing showing how the rack fits together. All you need to do it bolt the frame together, then attach the racks for the bikes, bolt into the floor (if you wish to) and it’s finished!


Flexible in size

We make this bike rack to order, so if you need 3, 4, 5, 13, 24, 68 bikes we can make a frame to accommodate what you need. The frames can be bolted side by side with no loss of space, it really is a flexible way to park your bikes. To work out how many bikes you can fit in a space, all you need to do is measure the length and depth of the space you have. The rack is 1114mm deep. To calculate how many bikes you can fit in a length, simply divide the length of the space e.g. 4000mm and divide it by 305mm. Then subtract 1. In this case, 4000mm could fit in 12 bikes comfortably using this rack.


Easy to use and fit for all types of bikes (except trikes!)

Very simple to use. All the cyclist needs to do, is lift the front wheel onto the track and roll the bike up. The way this rack is designed you don’t need to attach it to the rack as it will just balance on the track. The Semi Vertical Bike Rack fits all bikes with all different tyre thickness, including the chunkiest of mountain bike tyres.
