Barriers Direct brings you a wide range of only the highest-quality Sheffield stands. These simple, functional and highly popular bike stands come recommended by the National Cycling Association and are a common sight in most public areas. They are cost-effective and available in a wide price range.
Our standard Sheffield bike stands are a simple design, made of either galvanised or stainless-steel tubing, curved into an N shape. The tube rises to a height of up to 750mm and is fixed in concrete or bolted to the ground. Each stand can accommodate up to two bikes, positioned on either side. This simple design is highly practical. The durability of the material means many years of use without the need for maintenance. For those wanting some variation, these Sheffield cycle stands can be painted in a variety of colours to make them more appealing to the eye.
Our Sheffield bike stands come highly recommended not just because of the simple design but because of how it can be used to secure bikes. When standing a bike against Sheffield stands, you can easily use a D-lock or chain to secure the frame and wheels. Different parts of the frame and wheels line up well against the tubing for maximum security.
Here at Barriers Direct, we also stock the Frankton bike rack. This is a popular alternative that features a higher and lower end. This variation in height makes it capable of comfortably accommodating bikes in a range of sizes. We also stock fin-style stands and Clifton stands that can also accommodate bikes of different sizes. Such stands are ideal for public places and also in schools.
Our Hilmorton is another popular option that features a mid-height bar for the display of a bike parking sign. For those seeking a more visible alternative, our ‘Hi-Visibility’ bike stand is a good choice. Similar in shape to Sheffield cycle stands, its key distinguishing feature is the reflective strips on the crossbar.
