AS2890.3 Quick Reference Guide

Richard Mathews -

We have witnessed quite a lot of confusion from both architects and builders with regard to bicycle parking and end of journey facilities for cyclists since the revised AS2890.3 was released in 2015. 

Many of the changes to the standard can have a severe impact on the cost and the space requirements involved in installing these bicycle facilities. We have developed a new publication Design Guidelines for AS2890.3 to assist in both designing and selecting the appropriate products. 

At the same time we need to emphasise that AS2890.3 is not a mandatory standard. If however the project is being designed to Green Building Council of Australia’s’green star rating system then AS2890.3 requirements need to be adopted.

Solutions for all your bike parking needs.

No matter what your type of cycling, Securabike aims to provide practical and easy to use bike parking equipment for your arrival at any location. While commercial bicycle parking solutions are a specialty, Securabike also offer domestic racks for your home or garage, temporary racks for sales or hire and even scooter racks for schools. Commercial bicycle parking products include bike racks, bike rails, bicycle cages, bicycle lockers, bicycle shelters, end of journey facilities and accessories such as bicycle repair stations, bicycle signage and clothes lockers.

For over 18 years Securabike has provided cyclists and clients catering for cyclists such as property managers, the largest range of bike parking options available. Cycling has exploded in use in Australia and not all purchasers of bike parking equipment for commercial projects are regular cyclists. Here at Securabike we have tried to make life easy for specifiers such as architects and construction companies often responsible for installing such equipment in projects. Property managers are also regular customers that need to manage and maintain bicycle parking. To this end, our Securabike website and Bicycle Parking Handbook (comprehensive 121 page guide) explains to the A to Z of bike parking requirements including:

  • Security options for cyclists
  • Spacing of parking equipment and bicycles
  • Aisle widths for transit of bikes and pedestrians
  • Vertical bike or horizontal bike storage options
  • Individual or shared cycle parking equipment
  • Double story bicycle racks to maximise space
  • Scooter and skateboard storage (new)

Design is our strength and we can assist bicycle parking projects on layout and spacing options from one to bike to hundreds. This is provided for commercial projects where space is a premium and bicycle parking demand is strong. Securabike often see bike parking facilities over subscribed and the challenge arises on how to fit in as many bicycles as possible, while still providing functional access and usable bike parking equipment. Contact our offices for further assistance on your project and product drawings are also downloadable for specifiers doing their own layouts.
