Bike Parking Racks are the most useful products when it comes to parking or locking up one or several bikes. Even as a home storage Bike Parking Rack, a whole family can store their bikes without taking up too much space.
With bicycle ownership and bike commuting on the rise across the country, property owners, developers, architects and homeowners are increasingly seeing the need for Bike Parking infrastructure.
Luckily, with Saris Commercial Bike Parking products, riders can have a safe and secure place to lock their bike. Whether a short-term 'staple' style rack in front of a small business on main street, or a fully secured, two-tiered bike storage garage inside a modern condominium building, Saris and Rack Attack have the right rack for the job.
We have racks for all budgets, and can provide you with storage solutions that hold the bike horizontally, vertically, locked or not. In addition to staple racks (also called docks or u-racks), we also have grid, wave, coathanger, hoop, post & ring and double-decker style options.
Most racks are offered in galvanized or powder-coated finish, and mounting hardware is available for most racks. Saris racks are made in the USA with mostly recycled American steel, helping your project meet or exceed design standards. Let us help plan or expand your bicycle storage capacity.
“You cannot be for a start-up, high-tech economy and not be pro-bike.” – Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Chicago
Integrating high quality bike parking into a new construction or redevelopment project makes business sense – more and more developers want to highlight the bike parking as a project amenity and increasing numbers of cities are requiring and/or encouraging more bike parking in development projects. Plus, bike parking can enhance the LEED certification process. Saris makes it easy to incorporate elegant, cost-effective bicycle storage into any building project and can guide the process of product selection and space layout.
