Parkland Series Bike Racks from Duo-Gard include the Small rack, Oval rack, P rack, Lock rack, Poolside rack, and Sector rack. They are suitable for high-end architectural applications and locations, as well as day-to-day high-density parking.
Parkland Series Bike Racks are constructed from 316L stainless steel, which ensures longevity with little maintenance, protecting against weathering, vandalism, and other elements outdoor bicycle site amenities endure. The higher quality of steel is especially important in coastal areas and areas that use salt for snow removal, because they are highly susceptible to tea staining. The 316L stainless steel lasts significantly longer than the 304 stainless material typically used, resulting in greater cost savings in a 10-year period when 316L stainless steel is used.
“Customers are always surprised at today’s economical initial pricing,” said Sean McKnight, bicycle infrastructure coordinator. “This is a real solution for two looming industry issues: longevity and cost savings, two things that do not always go hand in hand, but in this specific case, spending a reasonable amount of money upfront will save you future replacement and maintenance costs,” he continued.
McKnight added that there’s a need for education in the industry. “Once municipalities are aware of the longevity and cost savings provided by these products, we believe they’ll be more inclined to consider the advantages of 316L stainless steel as a standard for bike racks.”
The Parkland Series was designed with an aesthetic style in mind which will cohesively fit into any environment. “The design of these racks is meant to offer a modern and industrial approach to bike parking with stylish designs enhanced by the smooth stainless steel finish,” said McKnight.
A variety of finishes are available depending on materials and where colors are possible. Parkland Series Bike Racks are largely made to order for individual projects and are available for surface-mounted or below-grade applications.
