We installed two types of bike storage at the Boots Company Headquarters in Nottingham to cater for the growing number of employees choosing to commute by bike. The first phase of the project was installing 32 Black Streetpods, giving 64 bike spaces, outside and under an existing shelter.
Our Streetpod is a market leading solution for secure bike storage. It has been certified to ‘Sold Secure’ Silver and has also gone through a rigorous independent testing process to achieve Secured by Design status, in fact it is the ONLY cycle stand product to achieve this certification. The Streetpod securely encases the front wheel of the bike within its robust and recycled MDPE body which provides a tamperproof area where wheel nuts cannot be accessed. The bike frame and rear wheel can then be locked with only one bike lock to the security loop in the Streetpod’s 20mm solid steel loop which means the bike cannot be maneuvered backwards.
They also save approximately 30% space compared to standard bike stands, freeing up space for other services. The main shield of the Streetpod is manufactured from 100% recyclable material, helping the developer to achieve green material targets.
The second phase of the project was to install a basement full of Sevenoaks Semi-Vertical Racks. These Sevenoaks Semi-Vertical Racks are the answer to tidy storage when having to house a large number of bikes. Plus we added a security hoop to each stand which provides an extra locking point for bikes, making the storage more secure. We installed a total of 189 bike spaces using these racks.
