Lockit-safe had already installed cycle parking on this NHS site in Cardiff a number of years ago. Due to the popularity of these, additional capacity was required so the new contractor employed to carry out this project, JR Smart, came to us for this next phase.
There wasn’t sufficient space on the original site, so an unused room within the building was identified for this additional cycle parking. Our two-tier, gas-assisted cycle racks were ideal for this space. having installed in many similar spaces at rail stations and for cycle hubs. The two-tier system allows maximum cycle parking spaces in a limited space. We managed to fit in 60 two-tier racks in the area, greatly adding to the capacity available to workers wishing to cycle to work and providing secure and weather-proof parking.
One of the challenges of it being in an existing room, however, was the access to the area and required us to move the racks and materials by hand down a 50m corridor. The project was installed in May 2019 and took 6 weeks from order to completion.
