Reliance Foundry Co. Ltd., North America's premier supplier of bollards, custom castings and bike racks, announced the development of its most secure bike storage option with the launch of the model R-8285 Bike Locker. Designed to deliver “peace-of-mind” bicycle storage, it features secure, plastic construction. Its triangle shape allows it to be installed in circular patterns that can stand alone or fit 90 degree corners. The model R-8285 provides an unsurpassed level of durability—and a versatile style that works well with any architectural motif.
Bike lockers provide the greatest level of security in bike parking. Their box-like construction protects bicycles from the elements as well as thieves and vandals. Due to the level of protection they provide, bike lockers are often installed in areas where storage may be required for extended periods of time or where there may be an increased risk of theft of vandalism.
"As cycling continues to grow as a form of transportation, we realized that many areas would require more security than traditional bike racks could offer," says Reliance Foundry Product Manager, Len Cranmore. "We decided to provide bike lockers that offer a level of security that would be ideal for areas like transportation stations, shopping malls, college campuses and recreation centers."

Reliance Foundry's new bike locker increases accessibility at businesses and in communities, while setting riders minds at ease. Its design will work with both contemporary and traditional architecture. The model R-8285 was developed after assessing bike parking requirements at colleges and universities. A unique design was created to offer the optimum level of security, not just for bikes but also for additional cycling equipment like panniers, locks and lights. Five model R-8285 bike lockers fit perfectly into a 90 degree corner, while 10 units make a half circle, and 20, a full circle. The mounting system of the model R-8285 is fully contained within the unit to increase security. Virtually eliminating the threat of theft and vandalism, the new model R-8285 is a stylish solution that provides the highest standard in bike parking security.
"We wanted to provide an option that would offer the best type of security with a design integrity that would deliver the highest level of durability," says Reliance Foundry Vice President, Brad Done.
Reliance Foundry’s new model R-8285 Bike Locker provides the optimal level of weather resistance and protection from theft and vandalism. It features an internal surface-mounting system for installation on existing concrete surfaces. The model R-8285 is kept in stock and is available for immediate shipment. If you’re looking for a way to increase accessibility at your business, then the plastic model R-8285 Bike Locker by Reliance Foundry is the perfect solution!
