Vertical bike racks are hangers or holders that allow bikes to be hung via their frame or wheel. Using them can be a great way to save valuable bike storage space in indoor or outdoor areas. Hanging bikes in this manner have proven to be a tried and tested method for bike storage and will not affect the bike in any way.

Upright bike storage is available for single or multiple bikes. Once the bicycles are in position they can be locked in a place like any other bike rack. Vertical racks are highly suited to areas with high levels of bike use or buildings with their own bike parking facilities.

What are the benefits of vertical bike racks?

  • Save valuable storage space - By storing bicycles in an upright manner it can help to save ground space and increase overall bike storage levels. An average bike will measure 72 inches from front to back - if installed vertically it is drastically reduced to 48 inches.
  • Reduce trip hazards - Having bikes stored in an upright manner will reduce the number of racks on the ground. This reduces the risk of trips in the area
  • Increase amount of stored bike racks - Having vertical bike storage will allow facilities to store more bikes than before. This kind of storage is highly suited to apartment buildings, business premises, train or bus stations, schools and colleges.

How to install vertical bicycle racks?

Before installing vertical bicycle racks, it is important to complete a full risk assessment of the area and note anything that may hinder the use of the stands.

Be sure to check -

  • The size of the bikes - Will the bikes fit into the racks? Are there bikes in use in the area with larger tyre sizes?
  • Ground and lifting clearance - While the racks are installed they should allow bikes to be inserted with ease and without much effort. Be sure the headroom allows for easy insertion of bikes while not hitting the ceiling.
  • Minimal obstructions - Some racks can be installed in or around obstructions like pipes. However, it is best to install away from these obstructions to get the maximum storage spaces provided.
  • Mounting surface - vertical bike racks generally come in a free-standing, wall-mounted, ground-mounted or wall and ground-mounted design. It is crucial to ensure that whatever surface the racks are bolted to can hold the weight of the stand and the bikes at full capacity. The correct fixings and fixing methods should also be used. Assess the surface for any previous damage.

Types of vertical bike storage

  • Wall Mounted - These racks only need to be bolted to the wall. They are often called a bike hanger or bicycle hanger. The Eltham Bike Hanger allows for single bikes to be stored via their wheels. Simple, fast and easy to use bike storage
  • Wall and Ground Mounted - for added stability, some racks will require them to be bolted to the wall and the ground. This is usually the case with many storage units for multiple bikes. The Semi Vertical Bike Rack has a strong steel frame that can hold up to 6 bikes at once in a standard setup.

  • Ground-mounted - ground-mounted vertical cycle racks will only require bolting down into a flat ground surface. This allows them to be installed in open areas and, in some cases, allows for back-to-back installations.
  • Free-standing - using a free-standing vertical rack may only be suitable for small bike amounts. Free-standing racks do not require bolting down, but installing them into the ground adds stability and longevity for the stand.
