Benefits of a Cycle Shelter
Cycle shelters show consideration for your cycling staff, students or visitors, providing a safe, secure and dry place for them to store their bikes easily. Installing a shelter can encourage more people to cycle and can also help to incentivise cycling all year round- even in wet weather as pupils or visitors will know that their bikes will be dry and ready for use at the end of the day.
- Reduces clutter of bicycles on your grounds and creates a tidier outside area
- Creates a safer environment by reducing trip hazards
- Encourages cycling as cyclists are reassured that their bike is protected
- Keeps bikes dry and sheltered from the weather
- Reduces risk of theft and vandalism as the bicycles can be secured to the cycle racks
- Space saving - A standard sized cycle shelter only takes up the space of one car and can store up to 10 bicycles!
- Makes more car parking spaces available if more people cycle
- Our cycle shelters are available BREEAM compliant

5. Unique Clamping System
Our range of cycle shelters are designed using a ‘Unique Clamping System’ which reduces the need to drill holes in the panels. Over drilling voids the manufacturer’s warranty and can cause the panels to bulge and water to leak into the shelter. The clamping system also makes the shelter resilient and weather proof.
6. Base Plates
Our cycle shelters are bolted to the ground using base plates, avoiding any major drilling and digging on site. A suitable concrete base is required; if you do not have a suitable concrete base, we can install one for you at an additional cost, please contact us for more details.
