Bike racks are structures designed to park bicycles in a safe and orderly manner.

These elements of street furniture are essential for several reasons:

  1. Promotion of sustainable mobility: they encourage the use of bicycles, reducing pollution and improving the air quality.
  2. Security: they provide a safe place to tie up bicycles, preventing theft and damage.
  3. Organization of public space: they maintain order in urban areas, preventing bicycles from being parked haphazardly, leaning against walls, etc.
  4. Convenience for cyclists: they provide an easy-to-find reference point for parking the bicycle, making daily use of the bicycle easier.

Available models, materials used, design and functionality of bike racks

Racks come in different models, including the vertical and horizontal bike rack, each with specific features to meet different needs.

The vertical rack, for example, is ideal for limited spaces, allowing bicycles to be parked upright and saving floor space.

The materials used for the construction of bike racks include:

  • stainless steel, which is particularly resistant to corrosion and suitable for outdoor use;
  • painted iron, available in different colors, which offers a pleasant and harmonious visual impact;
  • concrete, ideal for ensuring great stability and resistance to vandalism;
  • treated wood, an aesthetic and ecological choice, often combined with other materials, for greater durability.

The design of outdoor bike racks is very important for harmonious integration into urban spaces while maintaining high levels of functionality.

The modular design allows the racks to be adapted to different space dimensions, ensuring ease of use and enabling the bike to be quickly and securely tied down. In addition, good design contributes to the attractiveness of public spaces, enriching the urban design.
