What are Bike Hubs?

Bike parking hubs help promote sustainable and active travel, and will often combine various bike parking types and integral cycling features, such as repair and maintenance services, into one dedicated facility, as well as enabling opportunities to integrate educational materials for users like nearby route information posters and advice on secure locking.

Designing Bike Hubs With urbanspec

Bike parking hub plan

Secure bike hubs from urbanspec combine volume manufacture with custom build capability. Accommodated within each build layout are extensive options for capacity, cladding and frame finishes, access control, and roof type specifications. Custom dimensions and configurations from the same proven design platform utilise an integrated design and engineering methodology, making site-wide design coordination and single-source procurement a realistic target.

Central to urbanspec product design, bike hubs can be easily configured to be Secure By Design compliant or incorporated into planning applications to achieve BREEAM performance requirements, enabling bike storage to be considered from the earliest stages of project development

A substantial resource and knowledge base enables urbanspec to simplify specifications, utilising CAD models, NBS specifications and datasheets available for download. Supporting CPD programmes provide clarity on the optimal approach to aspects such as security considerations and effective space planning.
