This is a structure which is designed to be ridden around and therefore slow cyclists down or ensure they have to dismount. Cycle chicanes are often used at the entrance to walkways in retail areas, public spaces and schools etc.
The Cycle Holder range is a very familiar sight throughout the UK. This type of cycle holder is used by simply pushing the front wheel of the bicycle between the two grippers to hold the bike vertically. The benefits of this design are the low cost, very effective and versatile use of space and familiarity for cyclists. Both our Cycle Security Rail and Vertical Cycle Holder are equally simple in design and use. The Cycle Security Rail is attached to a wall at approximately the height of the top tube of the frame which then allows a lock to attach the bicycle to the rail. Our Vertical Bicycle Holder is designed to hook the front wheel of the bicycle with the whole bike hanging vertically.
This Cycle Rack is a wall mounted cycle rack based upon the Model R Holder. The Wall Mounted Cycle Rack is available in racks for 3 or 5 cycles, but can be manufactured to suit any number of cycles if required. Each individual holder is 610mm centres. This Cycle Rack is designed to be bolted to a suitable concrete or brick wall. The practical and durable nature of the Wall Mounted Cycle Rack ensures that the rack is suitable for all environments where high density of cycle parking is required.
Floor mounted double-sided
This type offers an extremely high double-sided cycle parking density. The high and low holders combined ensure that cycles are parked only 170mm - 305mm apart (typical parking distance for a Sheffield Cycle Stand is 500 - 1,000mm). The high holders, which incorporate ramps, are arranged in opposite facing pairs, as are the low holders, with this combination ensuring that all holders can accommodate bicycles at the same time. The practical and durable nature of the this cycle rack ensures that the rack is suitable for all environments where extremely high density of cycle parking is required.
Floor mounted single-sided
This is a floor mounted cycle rack offers a high cycle parking density with cycle stands on one side. The single-sided holders allow cycles to be parked 610mm apart. The practical and durable nature of the Cycle Rack ensures that the rack is suitable for all environments where high density, single-sided controlled cycle parking is required.
Floor mounted round cycle racks
The round Cycle Rack provides secure cycle storage for up to 12 bicycles. An excellent way of incorporating cycle parking onto a busy site, this round cycle rack is manufactured from mild steel which is galvanised as standard to ensure its longevity. The stand can be coated in any BS or RAL colour as required. The tyre of the bicycle is gripped by the holder’s arms and can be secured to the rack by the owner’s lock. The holders are positioned at 90° from the stand to allow for easy access from all angles. Available ragged only.
Classic Cycle Stands
Products from our Classic Cycle Stands range are an even more familiar sight in the UK than our Heritage Cycle Stand range, with the Sheffield Bicycle Stand having been the preferred stand style throughout the UK for two decades. The 'Bicycle Security Stand (model n) Sheffield Style' was first introduced in 1994 and has been in continuous production ever since. One of the reasons for the enduring popularity of the design is its simplicity; a tube of steel with two bends which allows for two bicycles to be lent against it and attached using the cyclist’s own lock. Since the introduction of the Sheffield Cycle Stand, the manufacturer has been continually developing the principle to provide a greater range of choice, but has always stuck with the same basic recipe of materials to ensure the stand is robust enough to be used in public spaces. In addition, the combined protection for the materials ensures they look good for years: the mild steel version is galvanised and the finish to the stainless steel version is to a very high standard. So it might be possible to find a bike stand in a similar style to our Sheffield Bike Stand for less money, but ours will last for decades.
The other products in our Classic Cycle Stand Range are all variations of the original design: The Eco Sheffield Cycle Stand is a rolled hoop with a smaller footprint for more discrete installation; the Kirby Cycle Stand is another with a rolled hoop but with a footprint similar to the Sheffield Bicycle Stand; the Frankton Cycle Stand has a sloped top rail to give a different appearance; the Clifton Cycle Stand, Hillmorton Cycle Stand and Bilton Cycle Stand are all based on the Sheffield Cycle Stand but with different design features; the Clifton Cycle Stand has a diagonal tube inside the hoop; the Hilmorton Cycle Stand has a Cycle Parking Sign and the Bilton Cycle Stand has a horizontal tube. The Rugby Cycle Stand is a little different and a little more complicated as it forms a 'P' shape, but it is made from the same materials and is equally easy to use. The Wall Mounted Sheffield Cycle Stand, as the name suggests, is designed to be fixed to a wall and can be specified in virtually any length.
Toastrack cycle racksThe Sheffield Toastrack Cycle Rack is floor-fixed cycle rack based upon the Sheffield Cycle Stand. The Sheffield Toastrack Cycle Rack consists of Sheffield Cycle Stands welded at 800mm centres to floor-fixed box section rails. The benefits of a Toastrack Cycle Rack over individual stand are reduced installation costs and pre-determined gaps between stands, with each stand being suitable for parking two bicycles. The Sheffield Toastrack is ideal where cycle parking in large numbers is required. The practical and durable nature of the Sheffield Toastrack Cycle Rack ensures that it is suitable for all environments where high density of cycle parking is required. The Sheffield Toastrack is shown in galvanised finish; galvanised and coated finish and stainless steel are also available.
The Semi-Vertical Cycle RackThe Semi-Vertical Cycle Rack is designed to offer a cycle parking solution suitable for where space is at a premium. The design allows the user to lock their bicycle through the stand to ensure security, with the ramp allowing easy placing of the bicycle, and the hooped bar at the base ensuring the bicycle is retained in position correctly. The Semi-Vertical Cycle Rack alternates high and low holders to allow for greater cycle parking density. Individual Holders are also available. The practical and durable nature of the Semi-Vertical Cycle Rack ensures that the rack is suitable for all environments where high density of cycle parking is required, especially those where space is at a premium.
Front wheel hoop cycle racksThe front wheel hoop is floor-fixed cycle rack designed to hold the front wheel of the cycle off the ground. The front wheel hoop Cycle Rack is available as a 2 bicycle holder with cycle parking centres at 350mm. Each holder allows the user to lock their cycle through the front wheel to the stand. The practical and durable nature of the front wheel hoop Cycle Rack ensures that the rack is suitable for all environments where high density of cycle parking is required.
The Vertical Cycle RackThe Vertical Cycle Rack is the perfect cycle storage solution for sites where space is at a premium. With a depth of only 810mm, the Vertical Cycle Rack offers site owners a high density cycle parking area with a small footprint, making this ideal for use indoors. Bicycles are held in position via the wheel holder at the top of the stand, and the design allows the user to lock their bicycle in place through the stand for added security. Staggered holders are utilised to increase the density of the cycle parking area, reducing the amount of space required between the cycles to 350mm. Highly durable, the Vertical Cycle rack is manufactured from mild steel and galvanised to ensure its longevity. All racks can be colour coated as required. Available flanged only.
Contemporary Cycle Stands
The Contemporary Cycle Stand range takes the principles of the Classic Cycle Stand range and adds extra design appeal. These products are all available in both stainless steel (grade 304) and galvanised mild steel, using the same materials as employed in our Classic Cycle Stands. The additional bends, curves and welded connections add elements to the design that make these bicycle stands ideal for prestigious and design-led applications, whilst retaining the durability of all our products. The Buckby Cycle Stand features a half octagonal shape created by a series of four bends in the steel, giving a softer look than the Sheffield Cycle Stand. The Dallington Stand, designed to complement the style of the Harbledown or Canterbury Cycle Shelters, has an inherent balance, a feature shared with the Harlestone Cycle Stand, a bike stand which complements the Bolton Bicycle Shelter. The Duston Cycle Stand is a particularly popular design, perhaps because of its resemblance to a shark fin! The Kingsthorpe Cycle Stand is another stand with a design drawn from our range of bicycle shelters, in this case the Cantilever Cycle Shelter. The Ashby Stand, the final stand in our range of contemporary cycle stands, is a simple peaked design.
