Cycle Shop Stockroom Racking
Bicycle retailers have unique storage requirements due to the huge variety of differently sized products that they offer. Careful consideration has to be taken to ensure that enough storage space is allocated to the different types of product, whilst maintaining large enough access aisles for the safe passage of assembled bicycles.
Our varied range of storage products are perfectly suited to retail shop shelving, each one can be configured to suit any bike retailer's specific requirements. This creates an optimised stockroom based upon the actual stock profile.
Cycling shoes can be a particular headache for bike retailers, the vast range of sizes and styles on offer for both male and female riders requires an awful lot of space to be allocated in the stockroom.
The EZR Trimline shelving system is a well-proven commercial solution for shoe box storage. Slim shelf beams keep wasted space to a minimum. Adjustable shelf heights every 25mm also allow each storage rack to be set up differently to suit the stock profile - an important feature when you consider that shoe boxes can come in a variety of sizes.
Bicycle Accessory Shelving
The local bike shop is still a popular choice for cyclists to purchase spare parts, upgrades and consumables. However, keeping the vast array of items required to cater for a whole spectrum of riders is a huge challenge for the retailer.
Everything from the smallest nuts and bolts to brake levers, chainsets, saddles and awkwardly shaped items like mudguards and wheels have to be stored in a way that is practical and easy to locate.
Longspan shelving is the ideal solution for bike accessories with extra-wide shelves for storing the various shapes and sizes of cycle accessories.
Heavy duty shelf beams and solid frames provide a sturdy platform for storing bulky items and boxed goods whilst a 50mm height adjustment for each shelf lets you arrange the storage rack exactly how you need it.
A wide range of sizes are available to create a storage solution that will fit perfectly within any shape or size of stockroom. If you want something a little extra included like an assembly table or a mobile storage trolley, our design team can easily incorporate this for you.
Boxed Bike Storage
Bicycle retailers have a unique requirement for storing large quantities of heavy and awkwardly shaped boxes within a small stockroom.
Heavy duty longspan racking is the ideal choice for boxed bike storage thanks to high shelf load capacities and easily adjustable shelves that are perfect for hand loading and unloading of bulky items.
The example opposite shows how 3 bays of racking can store up to 72 boxed bicycles within a relatively small warehouse or stockroom, with enough space on the top shelf to allow the storage of other cycle accessories.
Longspan shelf beams are adjustable on in height to minimize wasted space between each level and can be supplied with either chipboard shelves or steel shelf panels.
Shelf depths of up to 1200mm and widths of up to 2400mm provide large shelf openings for the convenient storage of pre-assembled bicycles.
We have supplied a variety of storage solutions to bicycle manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers - each with individual designs to suit their requirements. Contact us for free help and advice about our full range of bike storage solutions.
Hanging Bike Racks
Vertical hanging is one of the most efficient ways of storing bicycles as this uses the least amount of floor space. Bikes can be interlocked in the hanging position using a special 'meat hook' style bracket with a protective plastic sleeve to prevent damage to the wheel.
Anything from a small single bay to extra long runs of vertical cycle racking can be built by using a variety of our shelving solutions. Shelves can be added above to provide a practical place for accessories, spare tyres and other bicycle components.
Each hanging bike rack solution tends to be unique to the customer, we design specific systems to suit your exact cycle storage needs, contact us today for further information and a free quotation.
Folding Bike Storage
When you need to store folding bicycles like the popular Brompton bike, we have 2 solutions that have been specifically designed to offer practical and efficient storage in both indoor and outdoor locations.
The compactness of folding bikes when not in use allows a large quantity of bikes to be stored within a relatively small space. This means that very cost-effective storage solutions can be made.
The 8ft high, 3 tier bike racking system shown (below-right) is built using strong EZR Trimline shelving with 60" wide spans and 30" deep shelves to provide storage for 12 folding bikes per bay. Divider bars are inserted into pre-drilled shelf boards as a simple and cost-effective way to create the storage sections for each bicycle.
A range of racking sizes are available to suit your specific bike storage requirements, our modular shelving systems can be adapted to suit just about any cycle storage project.
The locker units shown (below) have been designed to accommodate 3 folding bikes per unit, made from galvanised steel, these bike lockers can be used outside (under a canopy) in a number of applications. This solution is now available to order online, please see our Folding Bike Lockers product page for further details and pricing.
These cycle storage systems are ideal for companies and businesses that provide bike locker facilities for staff members especially in London where the folding bike is a popular choice for commuting.
Cycle Assembly Shelving
Line-side production requires components of varying size and colour to be readily available to meet the required specification. Having the right components to hand can improve efficiency and help to reduce the overall build time.
The photos here show how a cycle manufacturer uses EZR wheeled shelving units to store not only components but also completed bikes.
As the mobile trolleys are based around our modular shelving system, the shelves can be easily configured to suit wheels, handle bars, seat posts, forks and frames. As parts change within the life-cycle of the product, storage sections can be simply adjusted to adapt.
Static shelving and wheeled shelving units are available in a range of sizes and can be designed to suit your specific needs. Contact us today to find out how we can improve your bicycle assembly areas with our high quality shelving products.
Bike Storage Lockers
We offer a variety of cycle locker and bike storage solutions to schools, government authorities and businesses who need to offer secure storage for students, employees or visitors who use their bicycles.
Vertical bicycle lockers offer a revolutionary new way of storing bikes. They are supplied with a patented mounting hoop that allows the bike to be parked in an upright position. This innovative design saves 40% of floor space compared to conventional horizontal cycle storage.
Vertical bike storage lockers are designed for outdoor use and provide security and space for clothing, a helmet and luggage too. Each locker is supplied with a disc padlock and fixing bolts. Quality manufactured to the Quality Cycle Locker Standard devised by the Bike Parking and Security Association, (BPSA) to meet planning application requirements.
Commuters in large cities often use folding bikes such as the Brompton bicycle to avoid congestion. Special lockers have been developed specifically to store this kind of bike to provide convenient stowage. Thanks to the compact size that these bikes fold down to, the area required to store them is much smaller - allowing bike storage facilities to be placed in more convenient locations.
A second option for storing full sized bicycles are these heavy duty BykeBins (shown below-left), available in a wide range of colours including 'stone effect' designs that really blend into the surrounding scenery, these bins provide a useful alternative to vertical bike lockers.
Their hard wearing plastic construction ensure each locker has a long lifespan no matter what the weather, with no potential for rust developing or any need for re-painting, maintenance costs for this type of bike locker are virtually nil.
Both the vertical lockers and the BykeBins are designed to be wider at the front so that they can either be lined up against a wall, arranged in an arc or positioned nose to tail for maximum use of floor space as per the image shown.
