Designing public spaces without considering the circulation and parking of bicycles is no longer an option in today's world. Accessibility for the free traffic of cyclists must also be accompanied by adequate security conditions, incorporating these devices in the best possible way to parks, sidewalks, parking lots, and the streetscape as a whole. 

Are you designing an urban space, or do the exteriors of your project require a correct link with the circulation of bicycles? Check these support elements that can help you to generate a better city for the urban commuter on wheels.

Bike Parking Bollards

Made of aluminum, steel, or ductile iron, the bollards allow separating the circulations of cars, cyclists, and pedestrians, at the same time to function as bicycle storage devices. Accommodating 2 bicycles per unit, each bollard can be installed permanently or can be temporarily removed if necessary, depending on how it is mounted on the surface.

Bike Lockers

To achieve the greatest possible safety when parking, there are urban lockers that protect bicycles against weather conditions and vandalism. Made of heavy-duty plastic, each module withstand high impacts and can be grouped in different geometric shapes, adapting to its surroundings thanks to its triangular shape.
