OPUS bicycle stands are a sturdy and practical option for parking bikes. The stand forms an inverted U shape in heavy-duty steel. This is the most popular type of bicycle stand in many countries in Europe, known as a ‘Sheffield stand’.
OPUS provides stable, convenient bicycle parking with excellent scope for effectively locking the bike frame securely to the stand. It can be used for single or double-sided parking, both requiring less depth than a traditional front-wheel stand. Two bikes can use the same stand, facing the same way or in opposite directions
The clear, simple shape makes the OPUS ideal for adding colour in the form of a powder coating. This can be used to further enhance the client’s design concept or the landscape architecture around the bicycle parking facility. We can apply a powder coating at our painting facility in Kolding, Denmark. This gives us full control over the quality.
The OPUS bicycle stand is 70 cm long and is installed to come to a height of 75 cm above the ground. The stands should be positioned at least 120 cm apart, to allow cyclists to easily roll their bikes in for parking.
If spaced slightly wider, OPUS can also be used for parking cargo bikes and Christiania bikes. We recommend a gap of 130 cm for this. Many towns, educational institutions, etc. are seeing increased demand for bicycle parking for cargo bikes, and OPUS provides a good, solid option.
OPUS can be cemented in or bolted to the ground with a base plate.
The stand is made from hot-dip galvanised steel, which ensures excellent durability in all weathers, meaning OPUS can naturally be installed out in the open. If you want to offer parking in the dry for customers, passengers, students or employees, then take a look at our bicycle shelters here. If you want to do even more to promote cycling, you can add one of our many air pumps to your bicycle parking facility.
Here at HITSA we have been working on products to promote cycling since the company was founded in 1954. We are cycling enthusiasts and support pedal power as an obvious solution to congestion and emission problems and as a health benefit.
Consequently, we are also happy to provide advice on how to make the most of the space and resources available to ensure an optimum bicycle parking facility. Contact our consultants if you have any questions or would like assistance with a specific request.
