Lockit-safe have worked for Bowmer + Kirkland for over 10 years, and our most recent project with them involves the design, manufacture and installation of cycle parking solutions at 4 stations for East Midland Railway.
The first of these is now complete at Kettering station.
The Cycle hub at Kettering required a bespoke design and utilised our space-saving two-tier cycle racks to maximise the number of cycle parking spaces available with the space. As with all rail stations, space is always at a premium, so our two-tier cycle racks are always popular.
The Cycle Hub was glazed and had wood panelling to give it a contemporary feel and for security included lighting, CCTV, and access control.
Working on a rail station is always challenging with tight schedules and the need to be safe in a potentially dangerous environment, all whilst keeping the disruption to rail passengers to a minimum.
This project was completed, from start to finish in just 6 weeks.
