R-8285 Plastic Bike Locker

Installation

Reliance Foundry's straightforward resources and proprietary mounting systems make installing bike lockers a breeze.

The inside of a bike locker and the surface to which it is mounted is shown to demonstrate how its flanged base allows it to be secured.

The interior flanged base allows the locker to be secured on new or existing surfaces. Reliance Foundry's bike lockers can be easily surface-mounted with concrete inserts, bolts and fender washers. To perform installation, the locker is set in its intended position. Holes with a 7/8” diameter are then drilled through the floor of the locker into the concrete substrate below. There are no set locations for the holes; for the most secure results, it is recommended that the markings be placed near the front, rear and middle of the locker's longest walls. Once the holes are created, concrete inserts are set inside them. Fender washers are then set over the holes and bolts are tightened into the inserts. Installing bike lockers in this manner allows their mounting to be fully contained within the unit. Reliance Foundry's lockers are designed with a unique pie-shaped footprint that allows them to be interlocked, if needed; five bike lockers will fit perfectly into a 90 degree corner, 10 units will make a semi-circle, and 20 units will make a full circle.

Installation Equipment Required

  • Measuring tape
  • Hammer Drill or Rotary Hammer
  • 7/8” Masonry Drill Bit
  • Small Masonry Chisel
  • Can of water for cleaning drill bit
  • Chalk
  • Level
  • Hammer
  • Masonry Nail (optional)

Surface Preparation and Determining Layout

  • Ensure that underground utility lines and pipes pose no risk:

    Because installing bike lockers requires penetration of the concrete surface, it advisable to check for water pipes, gas lines and underground wiring.

  • Clean surface:

    Dirt and debris can affect the line of sight and disrupt placement of the bike locker. Use a broom, an electric leaf blower or a pressure washer to clean the surface of the concrete on which the bike locker will be placed.

  • Study site plans:

    Site plans are generally created by the architect of the project. The architect will mark the intended location of the bike locker on the plan. Ensure that the plan coincides with the site and familiarize yourself with the intended position of the bike locker.

  • Place the bike locker in its designated location:

    Create drill-markings for each bolt that will be used to secure the locker in position. There are no set positions for where the bolts must be placed but, for the most secure results, it is recommended that the markings be placed near the front, rear and middle of the lockers longest walls. The markings should also be made far enough away from the wall to allow for the use of a rotary hammer and wrench.

Drilling the holes

  • Set the depth control on the Hammer Drill (or Rotary Hammer) to 3”

    Most hammer drills have a depth setting or depth control bar. If depth control is not available, use masking tape to mark 3”on the masonry bit.

  • Drill the hole

    Apply force to rotary hammer and create a hole that has a one inch diameter and a depth of 3”. Drill on high speed, using the hammer function if available. Check the masonry bit often to ensure it remains debris-free.

    If the masonry bit becomes clogged with concrete dust, rinse it in the can of water. If an overly hard patch of concrete is encountered, it can be broken with a masonry nail and hammer.

Securing the Bike Locker

  • Tap a concrete anchor into each hole:

    Ensure that perforated side faces down and use a hammer to drive the anchor until its top sits flush with the surface of the concrete. This will set the anchor in place.

  • Begin securing the bike locker:

    Place fender washers over the holes and set the bolts into place. Then, use a ¾” wrench to tighten the bolts.

  • Inspect the installation:

    At a distance, examine the plain of view. The bike locker should appear to be perpendicular with the surface of the concrete.

Bike lockers provide the best security for extended-stay visitors. Providing more protection against weathering, theft and vandalism, bike lockers offer ideal storage for commercial buildings, college and university campuses, multi-family residences, high-traffic transit hubs and other extended-stay locations.

Encourage integrated communities by supporting a healthy and responsible means of transportation. Bike lockers accommodate any standard-size bicycle, including an evolving industry of electric bikes and even most mopeds. They feature simple, non-intrusive installation, making them easy to install and relocate if needed. Proprietary design also ensures lockers can be configured to suit a range of outdoor parking spaces.

Functional design

Bike lockers offer spacious and easy-to-access interiors—optimal for storing additional packs, helmets, lights and other accessories. A solid door-locking mechanism requires only a single padlock to ensure fully enclosed and secure storage.

Versatile configuration

The wedge-shape design will accommodate a range of outdoor layouts. Individual units can be interlocked to create circular or straight-line configurations — perfect for interior and exterior corners, straight walls and open spaces.

  • 5 boxes = 90 degree corner
  • 10 boxes = 180 degree semi-circle
  • 15 boxes = 270 degree three-quarter circle
  • 20 boxes = 360 degree circle

Easy to install

Solid, light-weight construction makes bike lockers easy to maneuver and relocate. Internal bolts ensure secure surface mounting to existing concrete surfaces. Units come preassembled and ready to install.

Durable and low-maintenance

Made from low-density polyethylene, Reliance Foundry bike lockers resist cracking under stress, have excellent impact properties and will retain their shape and color for more than 20 years.

Lockers can simply be rinsed with hose water to remove dirt and other debris. In some cases, warm, soapy water may be required to remove more difficult dirt and debris. It is important to rinse the soap away after washing to avoid staining.

Windex can be used for removing stains. For other biodegradable anti-graffiti sprays and wipes, check with manufacturers to ensure these products will not damage polyethylene surfaces.
