The Park and Facilities Catalog announced today that it will be offering high density vertical bicycle parking, by unveiling their latest space-saving rack, The DoubleUp. This highly efficient and versatile rack is a part of the Sustainable Sites Project aimed at providing high quality solutions to a growing class of bicycle commuters. The company created an animated video showing details and benefits about the design of this innovative vertical bike rack.

The need for higher-density bicycle parking that exists on university, business campuses, and bike rooms designed to meet this need are becoming commonplace. It is exactly this environment that the DoubleUp performs best. This product provides high density, secure and versatile bicycle parking, while also leaving ample room for commuters to park and retrieve bicycles, along with having the ability to work on bicycles in a favorable and spacious environment when needed.

“Bicycle commuting is fast becoming a nationwide trend for those who live in multi-family housing units near businesses or schools. Many of these locations require a high number of parking spots for their commuters.” said Chris Luyet, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The challenge has been in finding space throughout the years. There just doesn’t seem to be enough of it when it comes to bicycle parking. With years of experience in the field, we have been able to design a product that will not only free up space, but provide a high security bicycle friendly option for commuters. Our goal was to attract riders with a clean organized environment, but still address the space issue many planners have been facing.”

The DoubleUp continues in the company's design trend aimed at indexing and offsetting bicycles to create a well-defined spatial footprint, while preventing handlebar to handlebar conflict. In addition, the vertical orientation of the DoubleUp ensures higher density parking in bike rooms that could prove to be a challenge for other rack styles.

Options for wall mounted and freestanding units come with or without a “locking bar” that gives planners the possibility of providing parking for tenants within their residence and where locking is necessary.

“The number of people cycling worldwide is steadily growing every year. Cities and planners know this and have been taking the necessary steps to offer an infrastructure to support it. But, it’s not just about creating a bike rack to get people to ride, we need to offer our commuters an environment that promotes and encourages ridership through a level of intuitive sophistication that makes it easier for them to bicycle rather than drive!” said Luyet

What makes DoubleUp such a versatile addition to the current landscape of commercial bicycle racks, and vertical bicycle parking racks, is that it offers freestanding options that alleviate the concerns of wall mounted installations. The freestanding units come in a single or double sided configuration. They are modular in design and can build out in lengths of 10 feet. The single sided unit secures 10 bikes in 10 feet of space where the double sided unit secures 20 bikes, an industry leader in organized space efficiency.
