LEED & Sustainability

Great cycling communities go beyond just a great rack. We are well versed in the importance of staying healthy, going green, and providing a product that will help others do just that. Our experience in this area has given us the knowledge of what steps are necessary to earn LEED credits through bike parking projects.

Spacing and location of bike parking as well as the type of provided bike parking is critical to maximize density, provide proper setbacks, and to ensure that Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) issues are met.

Bicycle Parking Class Consultation

Not all bike parking options are created equally. Classifications for three different types of bike parking have been created, Class 3, Class 2 and Class 1, each offering a higher degree of security than the last.

Our experience in the industry has given us useful insight into which classifications are necessary for different bike parking projects and what products/racks offer the appropriate amount of security given the specific project. We can provide support in this area for your bike parking projects.
