City of Edinburgh logoEdinburgh City Council has been a customer of Lockit-safe for a number of years, but with new projects put out for tender, there is always stiff competition.

In 2021 we won, for the sixth consecutive year, the contract to provide cycle parking facilities to schools across the Edinburgh area. This is part of the Local Authority’s objective to increase the number of children cycling to school, and to help facilitate this, many schools needed their cycle parking upgrading or expanding.

The project

The contract included 14 schools, providing 164 cycle parking spaces and 105 scooter spaces.

Our popular Hamble compound with sliding doors was the chosen design, but as we manufacture our shelters, we were able to allow customisation by the client with the replacement of the usual PET-G cladding, with steel mesh cladding, for extra security.

For some schools, the compounds were left in a galvanised steel finish and others wanted colour powder coating.
