Dutch Two Tier Bike Rack
The Dutch Two Tier Rack is a space saving solution that doubles the amount of cycle parking compared with traditional cycle racks.
Developed by Jan Kuiper’s in 1929; this company was the first to design a double tier system with gas assisted movable upper sections. Its space saving, robust design doubles the amount of cycle parking compared with traditional cycle rack, making it ideal for high density areas such as major transport hubs, offices and shopping centres.
The Dutch Two Tier Bike Rack is widespread in the Netherlands where it is very effective in congested urban areas. You simply pull out the upper gutter using the handle at its end and the gutter dips down at a 45 degree angle under its own weight. The bike is then pushed into the gutter where the wheels of all sizes fit snug. The bike can then be locked using a chain etc. to wrap around both wheel/frame and gutter. There is a gas assisted lifting mechanism that assists with pushing the gutter back into place.
