New Cycle Compound Puts an End to Bike Thefts

New Cycle Compound Puts an End to Bike Thefts

cardiff-high-school-easydale-cycle-compound smallCardiff High School has seen bike thefts drop dramatically to zero following the installation of their new Easydale Cycle Compound.

The school, which underwent a large refurbishment last August, had experienced a number of bicycle thefts from an existing shelter and so, as part of their refurbishment, they decided to have a compound installed which featured lockable gates to provide enhanced security.

We installed an Easydale Cycle Compound to their exact size requirements and included steel lockable doors to deter thieves. The compound was also fitted with clear polycarbonate to give all-round visibility into the compound at all times. The compound has now been installed at the school for over a year and to date there have been no bike thefts! The school also told us that they have found more students are cycling to school as they no longer worry about the safety and security of their bikes; and this in turn has reduced the amount of traffic in and around the school at busy times of the day, making the site safer and more environmentally friendly.

This is a great example of how providing suitable, fit for purpose cycle parking can encourage cycling at an organisation; with the installation of a secure compound it shows you as an organisation not only support cycling as a green form of transport, but that you value cyclists and acknowledge the importance of providing secure parking for their valuable bikes.
