Bradford, West Yorkshire, November 2010 – Already recognised for its range of high quality bicycle and motorbike storage units, Asgard have stepped up on the design, construction and the security features of their bike storage unit range with the NEW Annexe Bike Shed. This all-metal bike shed is suitable for storing up to 3 adult bikes, as well as cycling accessories, spares and clothing gear safe and secure in one place. As with all the Asgard storage units, the Annexe high security metal bike shed is built from solid galvanised steel panels with a heavy-duty integral metal floor and additional attack resistant features. The Annexe Bike Shed has a unique 5-point locking system, with the reinforced doors, panels and hinges for maximum security. The robust design has earned the new bike shed from Asgard LPCB approval, indicating that product has been independently tested and awarded a level 1 award from the Loss Prevention Certification Board. Nick Hewitt, MD at Asgard commented that ‘If you are in a high risk area where security is an issue, you need maximum protection for your bikes. The LPCB accredited Annexe Bike Shed will not only keep your bikes and property safe from theft and damage, it may also help with meeting security requirements for many bicycle insurance policies and reducing premiums*.’ Although the number of cyclists choosing to commute by bike has risen over the last couple of years, the need for adequate and secure storage for bikes is still a major concern. Research into cycling theft figures from the Bike Revolution initiative found that over 500,000 bikes worth over £113 million were stolen in the UK in 2009, approximately 1 every 65 seconds. Asgard have worked towards tackling these issues with the new Annexe Bike Shed by improving the outdoor storage facilities available and increasing security standards for cyclists across the UK. And already, the Annexe Bike Storage Unit has been a hit with customers, receiving positive feedback on the new storage unit from Asgard – ‘ I was pleasantly surprised when my bike storage unit arrived. The level of security is an exceptional, bolt, 5 point, pick resistant locking, ground anchoring and reinforced steel tube sections give incredible peace of mind. . A nice touch is the fact that the unit does not look like a bike storage unit, deliberate or not this element of discretion is just as important as the amount of locks. A passing thief would never know I have nearly £10k of bikes in there’.
