Security is of the utmost importance to many businesses. It can come in many different forms—from security cameras, to passwords, to locks on doors. Of course, one of the most crucial ways that business owners can strengthen security is through fencing. One of the less commonly discussed applications of fencing is bike cages. Do you think they might be right for your business? Here are some signs that they might be.
What Are Bike Cages?
First, let’s start with a brief summary of what bike cages are and what they can do for you. A bicycle cage is essentially a small enclosed area designed to secure bicycles while they are not in use. Most commonly, they are made of chain link. Indoor and outdoor varieties exist. The employees or residents in your building can park their bicycles in the cage, and rest assured that they remain safe and secure.
Now, onto our signs that your business could use them!
Your Employees Commute by Bike
Here is the most obvious one: if many of your business’ employees commute by bike, then investing in bike cages is a good idea. The same goes for if your commercial space is a residential building.
These days, many people commute by bike for a variety of reasons. Doing so means that they don’t have to pay for gas, can preserve the environment, and get a little bit of exercise while they’re at it. If many of your employees or residents fall into this group, bike cages can go a long way toward helping them feel that their bikes are protected from theft and other damage.
Who knows—it could be that your commercial space has a lack of bicyclists precisely because you aren’t offering them protection!
History of Break-Ins and Theft
Many businesses have an established history of break-ins or theft. If your commercial space falls into this category, bike cages are a perfect solution for your employees who ride bikes (or want to start doing so).
As a business owner, you’re already well acquainted with the importance of security. But the security of bicycles too often goes overlooked. Just in certain areas it’s preferable for businesses to have garages for their vehicles, bike cages serve the same function for those who commute by bike.
There’s no better way to show your employees you care about the security of their belongings, while simultaneously encouraging them to get some exercise as well.
