What is BikeKeeper quality?
We have 10 years warranty. Other companies in the best case give warranty for 1 year covering manufacturing mistakes. It´s not warranty. After 1 year client has to pay for even manufacturing problems.
Traditional bike racks are ”galvanised” OR painted. Right process means not only colour. It’s called duplex. That means that properly made painting protect zink surface. The whole idea is that paint is covering zink.
Other thing is that under zink must be ”third material” which come from real galvanisation and it is between zink and steel. Real painting must be done after product is storage hot-dip galvanized and then sand blasted before pullover painting. Nobody does it in USA, but we do.
The high-quality powder coating finishes the product and provides it with a durableouter surface.
Our products are hot-dip galvanized inside and outside, and powder painted. Traditional bicke racks are not properly hot-dip galvanised. There are several different actions that must be done before dipping to zink. But the main thing is that traditional bicke racks are not galvanised inside and that’s the main thing to do.
The fully galvanized structure has a long life cycle, even in harsh Nordic conditions.
Thick-walled steel beam
Our products are made from pure hard steel. The heavy-duty BikeKeeper frames will not succumb to dents by working machines, the weight of wet snow or vandalism.
Usually in traditional bike racks steel is ”soft” and there is added coal and other not clean material into steel. It even can’t be galvanised right because it’s not purified and hard steel.
Galvanizing process needs only pure steel to make chemical reaction happen.
UV-resistant, shock-resistant polycarbonate
Our covered products feature a clear polycarbonate sheet which is lighter and more durable than glass and designed for outdoor use. In addition to the basic clear option, you can choose smoke, bronze and frosted glass.
Guidance labels are a user-led entity
Guidance labels placed on the racks and in their vicinity encourage users to store their bicycles in a way that not only optimises security, but the use of space as well. The notice label placed on the door of the equipment storage helps prevent break-ins in advance.
