Why Design a Bike Room?

Because all these bike commuters need places to park and store their bikes while at work, at home, and everywhere in between.

One way to address this need is through a bike room; AKA: a designated space that provides the necessary infrastructure to keep bikes safe, and bike owners happy.

At Saris Infrastructure, infrastructure is our life force. Our team is here to ensure your bike-room-to-be will be suited for you and your cyclists. Whatever your needs may be, our experts will find a way to accommodate bikes in your project.

Storage Options for Bike Rooms

Vertical or two-tiered. Floor- or wall-mounted. When it comes to bike storage choices, there are many to consider, many benefits to weigh, and many room measurements to consult.

Below is a brief overview of the bike storage options we offer, their advantages, and how we can create a customized setup for your community of cyclists.

Vertical Storage Bike Racks

Because bikes are longer than they are tall, hanging the bikes vertically allows you to save space. More bike parking = happier commuters.

The Vertical Rack offers great flexibility and space efficiency as it can be mounted directly to a wall or on floor-mounted frames, saving precious floor space. Staggered heights allow us to shrink the spacing between bikes while avoiding handlebar interference to further maximize the available space.

Double-Decker Bike Racks

Two-tiered bike racks are a great way to maximize the number of bicycles you can store when floor space is limited. We offer these in two styles: the Stretch and the Stack Rack.

If you’re interested in the Stack Rack, our team will work with you to ensure adequate spacing above the racks and increased aisle space to accommodate lift assist racks as they pull out.

The Stretch Rack will give you the highest density parking of
any of our racks.

The Stack Rack also provides great high-density storage, but with the
additional benefit of a lift assist to aid in loading bikes on the upper tier.

Floor Mounted Bike Racks

You may be used to seeing floor mounted racks outdoors or in front of businesses or amenities. Floor mounted bike racks can find their niche in your bike room, too.

These bike racks are great in areas with low ceiling heights or overhead obstruction. They can also more easily accommodate less traditional rides, such as cargo or fat bikes, which may not fit other rack styles.

Mix it Up!

Don’t be afraid to use a combination of different racks in your room – combine wall-mounted with floor mounted, vertical bike racks with horizontal bike racks; the options are limitless! This can help use your space in the most efficient way possible and give cyclist the peace of mind and confidence that they have a safe space to park.

The Bottom Line

With any configuration of bike storage in your bike room, we aim to ensure bicyclists can move in and out of the space with ease. The best way to do this is to build your bike room with the recommended aisle spacing for whichever rack or combination of racks you’ve selected.

It’s our goal to deliver a hassle-free experience for you and the cyclists you serve, while supporting you in building a bike room worth bragging about.

Take It Up a Notch

Short- and long-term bike parking cover the room basics. To really wow and cater to bicyclists, many bike rooms are being outfitted with additional amenities.

Bike Pumps placed alongside bike repair stands — outfitted with the most common tools for bike repair — are a common theme, as are wash stations.

Additional bike infrastructure is just the beginning. For those seeking LEED credits or simply looking to best serve their community of cyclists, bike areas are outfitted with locker rooms, complete with lockers and showers.
