The perimeter cladding consists of steel frames with steel infill in combination with solid infill or alternatively with solid infill only or with steel infill only. The building envelope can therefore be varied according to the customer’s specific requirements. In the door area, the casing is not transparent at all to prevent access to the electronics controlling entry to the shelter.
The roof consists of a trapezoidal sheet with a slope of 8°, drained into rain gutters. The shelter can be connected to direct electricity or it is also possible to situate photovoltaic panels on the roof of the shelter, which provide power supply and therefore allow continuous operation of the shelter system even without connection to direct electricity. The building is not heated, due to the design solution is ventilated directly through the building envelope.
The shelter can accommodate a minimum of 30 bicycles with the possibility of a service rack for bicycles, etc.
Entrance to the building is secured through a gate with an electric doorman. The user must first authorize himself when entering the facility – whether by magnetic key, identification card or other sophisticated means. In addition to the sturdy construction of the shelter, the high level of security of locking the bicycles is ensured by the entry based on authorization (chip card, electromagnetic key, etc., which are protected by our company against their counterfeiting). The inside of the shelter is illuminated and the bike shelter is connected to the camera system. Part of the security system is also the delivery of software used to synchronize all security elements (electronic authorization, camera). The software was developed by our company.
We are now using mainly bunk racks in our bike shelters, which allows for optimal use of the size of the space in the room, as the bikes are stored in two parking levels. The above bunk stands are available in single-sided and double-sided versions. In order to make it easier to put the bicycle on the upper parking space, we supply the above racks with a mounted hydraulic mechanism, which helps the person putting his bicycle on the upper rack to push his bicycle out without much effort.
