Bicycles are an increasingly popular mode of transport. Many people choose to cycle instead of drive because of health reasons or environmental reasons, while others don’t want to be caught out by rising petrol prices. If you run a business or organisation, it’s advisable to provide a place for your employees to store their bicycles. While you could opt for a bike rack where employees can chain their bicycles, we believe that these aren’t the best solution. Instead, we recommend that you opt for mesh bicycle storage lockers. These bike lockers are made from the same materials as security fencing and are superior to traditional bike storage options in several ways. In today’s blog, we’ll look at the main reasons why you should consider investing in bike storage lockers so you can decide if they’re right for you.
Hundreds of bikes are stolen from bike racks every year. They aren’t very secure. Criminals often target these racks because bicycles are usually attached to them by a single chain with an easily-picked (or easily-broken) lock. In contrast, bicycle storage lockers enclose bicycles in a protective mesh cage that most criminals can’t penetrate. They are also equipped with sturdy locks. As an employer, you have a duty to protect your employees’ property. Mesh bicycle lockers are the most effective way to protect their bikes.
Your employees may feel uneasy about leaving their bikes in a bike rack or a similar storage solution. Unfortunately, their efficiency may be impaired as a result. After all, it’s a well-established fact that employees find it harder to concentrate on their work when they’re distracted by personal concerns. Providing bike lockers that employees can trust will give them peace of mind and help ensure that they are focused on their jobs.
As we have already mentioned, bicycle storage lockers are made from the same mesh security fences. This makes them much more durable than other bicycle storage solutions, so you won’t need to replace them as often. This can help save you a significant amount of money in the long run.
Of course, mesh bicycle lockers aren’t necessary in all cases. For example, if your site or premises is located in an area with a meagre crime rate, your employees may already have peace of mind and their bicycles may not require additional protection. However, we at Zaun believe that bike lockers are the perfect bicycle storage solution for most businesses and organisations. That’s why we’re proud to sell top-quality bike lockers alongside our other security measures. Get in touch with us to find out more.
