Cycling is currently enjoying a renewed surge in popularity in the UK and with added investment being funnelled into developing cycling infrastructure, the number of cyclists is set to grow. Our homes and offices must be able to cope with this change of lifestyle and adding cycle storage facilities is now vital for any new build.
Creating an effective and user friendly cycle storage area is easy to do, and it can help to meet your sustainability targets as well. Both BREEAM and The Code of Sustainable Homes allocate up to two credits if adequate cycle parking provisions are in place.
Cycle Stands are at the heart of every cycle parking area and are ideal for all locations. Fully scalable, the number of stands that can be installed is only limited by the size of your site. The Sheffield Cycle Stand is favoured by cyclists, and regulators, as both the wheel and the frame can be locked to the stand for added security.
AUTOPA has been manufacturing cycle stands since the 1950s and has a wide variety of stands and holders to suit every site and budget. Working on a prestigious development? Our Illuminated Sheffield Cycle Stand features a low voltage LED and will enhance any environment it is installed in.
Cycle Racks are ideal for creating a high density cycle parking area in a relatively small space. The majority of our cycle racks utilise alternating height cycle holders to reduce the space required between the stands, thereby increasing the number of bicycles that can be stored in a given area.
In order to comply with BREEAM regulations, a cycle shelter or a compound is an essential requirement. Cycle Shelters are designed to protect the bicycles beneath them from the elements, and are available with end panels, gates and a variety of roofing materials as required. AUTOPA manufacture, supply and install a wide variety of cycle shelters to suit every architectural style and budget. All of our shelters are galvanised as standard to ensure that they can withstand the knocks and bumps that will inevitably occur with intensive use.
VELOPA Cycle Compounds are designed for sites where added security over a standard cycle shelter is desirable. Completely enclosed, a cycle compound offers an additional layer of security compared to traditional free standing shelters and the lockable mesh gate is compatible with a variety of locking methods ranging from padlocks to swipe cards.
