Cyclepods installed 196 new spaces to the oversubscribed employee bike storage at the Jaguar Landrover factory.
Only 70 bike spaces were available using wide metal stands which meant that at least 2 locks would be required to lock both the frame and the wheel.
Cyclepods visited site and drew up a new plan for storage using our Easylift+ two-tier system and double height Brighton shelters to make the most of the space available. The factory site itself was secure so no gated enclosure was necessary, the entrance to the compound was fenced off so that we could install all the way down the side, and a new entrance was made.
The installation of the new storage had to co-ordinate with the removal of the existing storage as efficiently as possible to ensure that there was minimum disruption to the factory and the employees. Jaguar specified a particular week that would work best due to an annual factory shutdown, so Cyclepods had to ensure the site was cleared and new storage completely installed during this week.
Cyclepod’s Easylift+ is the only two-tier bike storage solution whose upper arm reaches all the way to the floor and is equipped with a gas-assisted lift. This make it as user-friendly as possible as users do not have to lift the full weight of the bike onto the arm, they can then lock their bike frame and wheel using the security loops on the frame of the Easylift+.
They also installed a bike repair stand and public bike pump in the enclosure so users storing their bikes had access to tools for basic bike repairs.
