The Cargo Corral is designed for cargo bikes, with the same ethos as our Mobility Corral; fast and simple carriageway reallocation, secure convenient locking and attractive aesthetics for the streetscape.
Security and useability
High spec ground anchors provide a convenient locking point for low slung cargo bike frames, offering increased security compared with traditional bike racking or Sheffield Stands. Smaller, more robust D-locks can be used in place of longer chain or cable locks, limiting access for cutting tools.
The open design allows access from both the carriageway and the pavement; bikes can enter from the road, the rider can unload their cargo and exit directly onto the pavement. This minimises time spent in the carriageway and keeps users protected by the end frames while disembarking, particularly important when transporting children. Storing cargo bikes on the carriageway eliminates the need to negotiate kerbs.
Form factor and appearance
Commonly longer and larger than bicycles, many cargo bikes exceed the depth of a standard parking bay; the Cargo Corral places them at an angle, with bollards and markings to separate each space. Each unit creates two spaces in a five metre bay, further spaces can be added as the installation site allows. Steel frames at either end of the bay create a physical barrier, protecting users from traffic and preventing motor vehicles from occupying the space. Triangular Ash Thermowood planters add greenery and a premium natural look to the site.
High level signage makes the corrals visible to users from a distance. Reflective panels with an eye-catching cargo bike motif are supplied as standard. Signage can be customised with branding and instructions. The modular construction and minimal ground fixings allow corrals to be relocated, expanded or reconfigured to meet changes in demand.
