"VERTICAL BICYCLE PARKING DEVICE"
This vertical bicycle parking project is
unique in the way that bicycles are stored or parked, secured and lifted in
When designed, all
word's bicycle parking requirements and regulations have been taken in
consideration: support the bicycle without risk of damage, enable bicycle’s
both wheels and the bicycle frame to be locked, bicycle parking to be as
close as possible to the cyclist's destination, bicycles being placed in
public view, bicycles being maximally protected from theft, protect
bicycles from weather where possible, bicycle holders being clearly signed
where necessary, bicycles easily accessible, pose no hazard to pedestrians,
bicycles parking well lit if used at night, bicycles being protected from
encroachment by motor vehicles, and occupying the minimum space.
criteria, this bicycle parking device completely satisfies all regulations
When placing bicycle on
device, both wheels (touching pneumatics only) are locked in sandwich
between wheel frames, bicycle is secured with one, two or three standard
padlock. One padlock will secure the wheel frame sandwich, second padlock
will additionally secure bicycle on device by locking pedal to the unit and
third padlock will lock the bicycle ramp in vertical position. Such security
wills definitely unable theft of bicycle or its wheels. Beside this, there
is possibility to use conventional bicycle securing chain instead of padlock
or use it as additional security.
The way, that bicycle
is placed and fixed on device will save the bicycle of possible damages
either when positioning it on device or during the time of bicycle storage
Lifting bike up when
positioned on device up to 80% of space is saved comparing to the any known
bicycle parking system with both wheels on the floor. It is important to
mention, that lifting bike up together with device ramp, does not require
any effort. Consequently, children and women can easily lift it up.
Placing bicycles with
front wheel forward and next one with rear wheel forward (ramps are
labelled), additional space is saved. So, comparing with Bicycle Box Parking
systems, which are mostly used systems in the world, 80% of space is saved.
Namely, Bicycle Box Parking system for ten bikes, occupies 20 m2, while this
bicycle parking system occupies only 4.2 m2.
This bicycle parking unit is compact self standing
system and could be moved easily from place to place. On the other hand, it
can be fixed to the floor with bolts. Units can be assembled for one, two
three… bikes. For big bicycle parking places, units can be extended
endlessly. There fore, these parking systems are suitable for anyone, from
single bicycle owners to big Bike Parks.
Vertical Parking Device
is made of steel and powder coated. With such treatment of steel,
durability of this device can be measured in decades.
