Raising the Bar in Bike Parking Design

Compact Bike Rack Case in CIVIQ Bike Parking Design case study

Cycling is a healthy and sustainable way of getting from one place to another. Not only does it keep you fit and active, but can save you money on petrol and other vehicle expenses. An increasing number of Australians are choosing to ride bikes as a mode of transport which has resulted in a growing need for safe and secure bike parking facilities.

Ricoh Australian, one of Australia’s leading private construction companies, reach out to the company because they had difficulties in finding bike rack products that were suitable for the limited space in their facilities. The company needed bike racks that could do the job well without handlebar clash and a high risk of damage to the bicycle’s spokes, which is a common problem in compact bike rack designs.

Wanting to ensure they found the right solution for the job, they called on innovative designers at Civiq to custom design and manufacture compact bike rails that could support a bike with low to no risk of handlebar clash and damage to the wheel spokes. All the while, the new design had to conform to AS2890.3 so that both wheels and the bike’s frame could be securely locked.

The end result was a new, innovative, and space-saving design that met everybody’s needs, the builder, the architect, the tenant, the building owner, and most importantly the growing number of bike users who are demanding safe and secure bike parking facilities.

The job was installed on time and came in under budget, another win for all involved and according to both the architect and construction company, they now have an excellent solution for future projects.

The unique Compact Bicycle Parking Rack has raised the bar and set a new standard for build quality and innovative design. It has received its own unique registered design certification from I P Australia and is an ideal solution for all projects that have space limitations.
