The HITSA-SAFE bicycle rack safeguards the urban landscape in the form of familiar urban furniture featuring Scandinavian design.
The HITSA-SAFE bicycle rack has been developed to blend in with the urban landscape as a practical and useful feature, while effectively protecting against vehicle-based attacks and incidents.
The internal construction of both bollards and struts ensures that the HITSA-SAFE bicycle rack can stop a vehicle. While a bicycle rack not incorporating HITSA-SAFE construction would break or be knocked down in the event of a collision, the HITSA-SAFE bicycle rack will halt any vehicle.
The HITSA-SAFE bicycle rack can be equipped with various wheel holders from our standard range of bicycle racks. We can supply it with any of our familiar wheel holders from NOAH, NOLI or HH20 BIG. So the HITSA-SAFE bicycle rack can be configured to match existing bicycle racks of the same model already installed in the urban landscape.
HITSA-SAFE bicycle racks are made from hot-dip galvanised steel. They can also be powder-coated to match existing bicycle parking facilities.
The HITSA-SAFE bicycle rack is available as either a single or double-sided rack. It has five parking spaces per side as standard.
A HITSA-SAFE bicycle rack is easy to install and use. It has been designed so it can be installed without cementing in. The installation depth is 300 mm. The customer initially needs to prepare a hole for installation, so HITSA can deliver to the site.
It is similarly easy to remove a HITSA-SAFE bicycle rack to allow occasional vehicle access. This could be necessary in the event of a fire or other emergency, or for waste collection purposes. This also makes HITSA-SAFE very useful for markets, festivals and other events that only take place occasionally. The base component set into the ground can be concealed by a cover when the HITSA-SAFE product is not in use. A locking system ensures that HITSA-SAFE products can only be removed by authorised persons.
It’s easy to clean under the HITSA-SAFE bicycle rack. Leaves and snow, etc. can be cleared with no problem.
The flexible system, with the HITSA-SAFE construction concealed within standard bollards and standard wheel holders, also means that worn or damaged bicycle racks can easily be replaced.
HITSA-SAFE bicycle racks are part of our HITSA-SAFE range, which comprises urban furniture designed to prevent vehicle intrusions. In addition to bicycle racks, the range includes bollards, benches, litter bins and custom-design products.
The range has been certified according to the international PAS 68 and IWA 14 crash-test standards.
HITSA-SAFE bicycle racks are ideal, for example, for city centres, pedestrian zones and other areas, where there is a need for protection against cars. HITSA-SAFE bicycle racks can also be used in front of buildings or facilities that consider themselves to be at risk. This could be shops, hotels, tourist attractions or sports venues, for instance.
