    We’ve spent decades serving municipal governments, educational facilities and parks and recreation departments with the very best in indoor athletic equipment and infrastructure. While we complete a lot of work inside gymnasiums and out on the turf, we also help these very same institutions and organizations with other products outside the immediate realm of sports and athletics.

    From recycled, eco-friendly plastic benches to dynamically designed bicycle racks, our aim has been to fully service our clientele any way we possibly can. One such department that has seen great growth for us over the past decade or so is the bicycle rack. With such a dramatic increase in cycling, not only as a hobby but as a way of life, many of our customers are searching for the right solution to store them while not in use.

    Three Advantages of Bike Lockers

    With an estimated 70 million cyclists in the United States alone, accommodating bicycles is no longer simply a perk to municipal residents or employees of large corporations, it is becoming a necessity. In many cases, bicycle racks are utilized to organize and allow cyclists a safe place to temporarily store their bicycles.

    These racks work wonderfully and will likely remain in use for years to come but they do lend themselves to exposure to the elements and to the possibility of theft.

    When it comes to the ultimate in protection for your bicycle, there is not much that can compare to one of our bike lockers. Completely designed using UV-stabilized, graffiti, fire, and abrasion-resistant polyethylene, these lockers are built to last. In addition to weathering storms of all kind, the contents of these lockers are secured with lockable, double-walled doors and reinforced walls.

    Each of the following mounting configurations satisfies a specific requirement for your bicycle rack:


    This option is clearly the most obvious choice when looking for a versatile solution when you might be interested in moving your bike rack from one location to another. This non-permanent solution simply allows the rack to rest on the ground independently and does not require any anchoring.

    Spring is rapidly approaching, and with the melting of the snow comes the re-emergence of cyclists after a long winter hiatus.

    Bicyclists are familiar members of the morning commute, often cruising by while cars are locked bumper-to-bumper. Bikes have always enabled commuters to go green while avoiding gridlock, offering an alternative to daily traffic delays. While the average bike does offer a clean, streamlined transportation option, the road to work does present some obstacles.

    Among the most common woes of a cycling commuter are steep hills and long distances. In response to the needs of this growing populace, electric bike companies are taking strides to change the face of the commuter bicycle.
