Choosing the right bike lockers

Bike lockers are slowly gaining popularity on business premises as more people opt for cycling as their primary mode of transport. A bike locker not only gives your employees a space to store their bikes, but one that offers high security due to its individual bike storage door. However, the various types of bike lockers on the market may confuse most, so how do you identify the best solution for your clients and employees? Here are some factors to consider before choosing your storage locker.

Choosing Bike Lockers Size

Bike lockers come in various sizes, from simple units for small businesses to larger ones that cater to school security. If most of your employees prefer cycling to work regularly, go for larger locker units. It may even encourage other employees to adopt cycling, resulting in a healthier lifestyle and improved work performance in the long run.


Bike lockers have different prices based on their functions. Some types of security fencing, such as bespoke bike lockers, tend to be expensive due to the intricate designs and colour requirements. It is, however, essential to keep in mind that high prices do not always equate to quality lockers. Look out for providers who are willing to negotiate and who offer economical and secure solutions. A bike locker is a future investment for your clients and employees, so go for the most cost-effective product.

Choosing Bike Lockers – Materials used

If you have used wooden or plastic lockers, you probably know the downside of these materials. They are likely to rot or be vandalised, and that is a problem you certainly do not want your clients to go through. Instead, opt for a locker that offers welded mesh fencing for durability and one that is harder to tamper with. A mesh cage means that your client’s bikes are safely enclosed in individual lockers. With such a solution, they no longer have to remove their rear wheel for fear of theft.

Whether you are looking for large units or small-sized bike storage solutions for your clients, choosing bike lockers from Zaun guarantees safe bike lockers with tamper-resistant fittings. Contact us for affordable and top-quality lockers and other perimeter fencing measures.
