Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham

Project: Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham

Nottingham Trent University required a cycle compound for their university. They contacted Able Canopies after viewing their range of cycle compounds and requested a full site survey.

Once the survey had been completed, Able Canopies were able to send out a quote for the Witton Cycle Compound, which was the product they felt suited the University's requirements.

The University chose to have the size of the compound 6.3m x 6.2m, enabling it to hold 18 cycles and 5mm solid polycarbonate was chosen to cover the compound as it is vandal and shatter resistant and UV coated on both sides.

The Witton Cycle Compound is a robust construction, both in terms of design and cycle capacity. It uses a unique clamping system on the edge of the shelter which dramatically reduces the need to drill holes therefore avoiding water leakage and the bulging of panels. The Witton benefits from steel lockable gates as well as a no crawl under perimeter providing high security for bikes.

The quote was accepted by Nottingham Trent University and the order was placed. The cycle compound was installed on time and Nottingham Trent University was happy with the end result and ordered two more Witton Cycle Compounds a couple of months later, one to hold 18 cycles and one to hold 36 cycles.

Several months later, Nottingham Trent University were in need of additional cycle parking storage and contacted Able Canopies once more. They were so happy with the Witton Cycle Compounds they previously ordered that they asked for a quotation for two more compounds which measured 6.3 metres x 6.2 metres and would hold 18 bicycles each. The staff at the university were happy with the quote and the compounds were ordered and installed successfully with no problems along the way leaving the university pleased with the end result.
