CORA MEETS BIKE PARKING GUIDELINES
With bicycle transportation increasing in popularity and importance, end of trip bicycle parking facilities are now a requirement for many new projects using AS2890.3 and Green Star guidelines.
Jon Rutledge of Cora Bike Rack confirms commercial tenants and residents require dedicated parking areas and devices that bicycles can be locked to or secured in. “AS2890.3 provides some helpful guidelines in designing safe, secure and convenient bicycle parking facilities. As these requirements can add up to a significant expense, it is important to specify bicycle parking products that meet the needs of cyclists to ensure the facility is fully utilised.”
“When selecting bicycle parking products, it is important to understand the features required for commercial applications,” says Rutledge. “While home use products are a great way to store family bikes within a secured home area, commercial grade products must be vandal resistant, weather resistant, and extremely durable. In addition, the products should be attractive in terms of design, easy to use and be positioned to allow easy access in and out of the facility.”
Cora Bike Rack is an Australian family owned business that has been designing and building bicycle parking facilities since 1997, he says, adding that as cycling enthusiasts, Cora staff members are passionate about providing the best designed and priced products available.
“Cora products have been assessed and verified by EcoSpecifier as compliant with Global Green Building Rating Schemes, and can contribute to GreenStar ratings. The use of EcoProducts such as Cora Bike Racks in building projects is an important contribution to reducing environmental impacts and improving human health. As a proud partner of bikeTrees, Cora Bike Rack also contributes funding to ensure thousands of native trees are planted across Australia every year.”
