If you own any type of bike, you will need a bike storage shelter. When you live in an area with fluctuating weather conditions, you will need a shelter to protect your bikes from all kinds of weather elements. The need for such shelters has increased in the last few years due to the increasing number of people using bikes to travel to work and school. Bike Shelters is a company that strives to help bike owners to get the best shelters that are not only durable but are also practical.
We offer a number of great Bike Shelters services and are more than happy in assisting you on anything from price, to dimensions, to specification.
Qualities That a Shelter Should Have
The main function of outdoor shelters in January 2021 is to protect the bicycle from natural elements as well as human interference. They should, therefore, offer enough security to keep you from worrying regardless of where you are.
They should also be weatherproof to protect the bicycle from UV rays as well as water, moisture, and wind. Your cycle should always be safe regardless of whether it’s snowing, raining, or shining.
Another essential quality is practicality. The bike storage you build should offer the kind of functionality you require. Try to think of your future projects as well, as that can help in making the shelter more practical. It should fit the number of bikes you have and their sizes, as well as be easily accessible to increase convenience for you. Consider whether the bike storage will be used in the short-term or long-term as well.
Benefits of a Bike Storage
As an institution owner, you will have healthier personnel when you have a bike shelter. Unlike driving to work or school, cycling offers many health benefits as it is considered a form of exercise. Whether it’s your students or your employees, having a cycle parking will improve their fitness.
With increased bike usage, you won’t have to worry about car traffic on your premises or area. Instead of investing heavily in parking lots, you can have bicycle storage solutions and reduce the size of parking you build.
Outdoor shelters are also a great investment because of the protection they give the users. People who invest in bikes need reassurance that their investment will be well protected from anything that can damage them. Bike storage offers that reassurance, especially when it comes to reinforcements that allow users to lock their bicycles safely inside.
Materials Used in Making Bike Storage Solutions
Most bike storage areas are made using wood because of the ease with which wood can be used. They are easily customizable and often provide more aesthetic appeal than other materials. You can ask the shelter company to add new functionality or feature than you would with other types. You can also paint them to match the surrounding structures or get a better visual appeal. Wooden shelters also provide a lot of security and are very strong, especially when treated with sealants.
On the downside, wooden bike storage shelters require regular maintenance to keep them resistant to moisture, fire, pests, and insects. If low-quality wood is used, then it will start to chip off after some time. You’ll require frequent repairs.
Metal shelters are also common, and they provide better security than wood. Since they don’t rot and they cannot be infested with pests and insects, they offer more value for money than any other type of shelter. You won’t worry about regular maintenance.
The storage provides more security against unwanted access, and they are stronger and sturdier.
Plastic shelters are also available and are made using vinyl or resin. Their lightweight nature makes installation and customization very easy. You can also transport them easily to any location you prefer. Since they don’t corrode and cannot be infested with insects, they require very minimal maintenance. Their inability to brittle, fade, or crack also makes them a better option of bike shelters.
Plastic outdoor shelters tend to be less appealing than their counterparts. Customizability options are also minimal with these shelters because they can’t be painted or additional features installed. The kind of material you choose for your shed should, therefore, depend on your main objective. For instance, if your main concern is security, then a metal bicycle shelter is the best option. If you need something that will be visually appealing, then a wooden shelter is better. Plastic bike shelters are more appropriate if you don’t intend to keep the shelter in one spot for long.

Factors to Consider When Installing a Bike Shelter
One of the main factors is the number of bikes you intend to store in the shelter. Look at their sizes as well. If you own or run an institution, then you can use standard bike sizes but use the approximate number of users to determine the size of the shelter.
Accessibility is another important factor to consider when getting a bike shelter. The shelter should be easy to use, which means that it should allow people to get their bikes easily. A new user should be able to add their bike inside without interfering with the ones already inside.
The location you have for the shelter also determines the size of the shelter you get and should be considered. Bike shelters need a flat surface, and they can be affected by other features like the height of neighboring structures. The way those doors can be opened and closed is also important, just like the design.
Most people will only use a shelter when they feel it’s safe enough for their bikes. As such, your bike shelter should not face an open area that people pass frequently and should be hidden from prying eyes. Keeping the shed closer to an area that is frequently used by the members of your institution can also discourage theft.
