“Today, thanks to the advanced security features in our shelters, the biking community can invest in higher quality with confidence their bikes will be protected,“ said Michael Arvidson, Duo-Gard’s executive vice president. “And communities across the country, from college and corporate campuses to cities and residential areas, can enjoy the aesthetics of structures designed to enhance their environment.”

“We’re very proud of this award, and we appreciate BuildingGreen’s recognition of our commitment to sustainability and to the biking community,” Arvidson said.

In its 14th annual awards, BuildingGreen, an industry leader in green building information for the building and design communities, has named the bike systems from Duo-Gard Industries as one of the Top 10 Green Building Products for 2016. These systems include bike shelters, parking and storage components. The award was presented at Greenbuild 2015.

Duo-Gard is an international innovator in the design, engineering and fabrication of bike systems that integrate high security and safety with architectural aesthetics. These systems advance sustainability as a major contributor to alternative transportation solutions.

“We encourage bicycling to work because it is not only healthy, but it also contributes to better outdoor air quality and is the ‘low-hanging fruit’ in terms of saving energy in the workplace,” said Brent Ehrlich, BuildingGreen’s products and materials specialist. “Having secure storage for valuable bicycles is critical for supporting these commuters.”

Ehrlich cited Duo-Gard’s wide range of bike shelter styles and materials, including options for integrated photovoltaics.

“Today, thanks to the advanced security features in our shelters, the biking community can invest in higher quality with confidence their bikes will be protected,“ said Michael Arvidson, Duo-Gard’s executive vice president. “And communities across the country, from college and corporate campuses to cities and residential areas, can enjoy the aesthetics of structures designed to enhance their environment.”
