Warrior 4 two-tier cycle lockers are a safe, neat and more profitable alternative to two-tier bike stands and bike racks. Made from galvanised steel, the unit consists of two Warrior 2 horizontal lockers secured above one another holding four bikes in total. In many cases they use less floor space than two tier stands and are more flexible within corners, between pillars, doorways and other possible obstructions. Fixing: surface/optional adjustable legs.
If you are considering cycle parking in an unattended basement of a building, would a cyclist want to leave their expensive commuter bike or E-bike in a communal bike rack or would they prefer a locker having a security accreditation recognised by all major bike insurance companies?
Cyclist who rely on their bicycle on a daily basis always want security for their bike and somewhere safe to store their helmet wet weather gear and other cycling accessories. A Warrior locker also has the benefit of being able to store scooters children’s bikes, trikes and prams, two tier bike racks offers you none of these benefits.
Warrior is a more profitable solution than cycle stands; Consider a block of flats, by offering a resident additional secure storage of 1.66m3 (size of a warrior locker), the building costs for the equivalent storage space in an apartment would be £1530.00. Warrior lockers also provide compartmentation of the bike store stopping the uncontrolled spread of fire and smoke if a fire was to occur, hugely beneficial for the storage of E-bikes and electric scooters. Please see our fire risk evaluation document for further fire safety information.
The technology put into modern bikes together with the massive demand for E-bikes has put up prices and inevitably resulted in a sharp increase in bike theft throughout UK. We need to move forward with cycle parking and give it the respect it deserves. Offering Warrior lockers which have the highest security accreditation will add prestige to any development.
When it comes to planning you may choose to offer both two tier stands and Warrior 4 two tier bike lockers, giving people a choice when they purchase the apartment or lease an office space. The developer or housing association can then recoup the cost by charging for the Warrior Locker. Cyclists are more than happy to pay for good quality secure cycle parking.
Conventional adult road bikes start from a weight of 8kg, however, the majority of road bikes weigh between 10kg and 15kg. Bikeaway recommends storing bikes over 15kg only in the lower locker. We also recommend the use of portable steps which can be supplied which makes it very easy to take a bike in and out of the top locker for all cyclist whatever their height or gender.
Many cyclist prefer to have a top tier locker, because with the door open the base of the locker makes a great bench area to inspect and repair their bicycle.
We always recommend that the lockers are managed, as not only will the cyclist be able to choose the locker that best suits their needs but also help manage the storage areas security and safety.
In every Warrior 4 two tier locker there is signage explaining the lift requirements for the top locker and advise cyclists to watch our information video on how to use a Warrior 4 two tier bike locker.
