Plaza Jr™ High Density Bike Rack

The Sportworks Plaza Jr.™ bike racks were designed to address the shortcomings of existing bike racks when used with smaller geometry bikes. With it's “zero clearance" mounting capability, the single sided 6 position rack can be installed directly next to a building or structure, maximizing space efficiency. Additionally, the double sided 12 position rack maximizes space use and capacity without increasing the length of the rack.

The Plaza Jr.'s™ angled parking orientation minimizes bike-to-bike interference, allowing for easy loading and unloading and promotes a clean, orderly appearance. Each bike is provided its own parking location and is supported so handlebars can't twist, keeping bikes upright. The Sportworks Plaza Jr.™ meets APBP bike parking standards allowing both the bike's wheel and frame to be secured using a variety of lock types.

The Sportworks single sided Plaza Jr.™ is available in both six and twelve bike versions, and can be ordered in stainless steel or powder coated mild steel. The Plaza Jr.™ is easily and efficiently installed with two mounting anchors.

Finishes

Sportworks bike parking products are available in a wide variety of finishes and materials. Please contact us for specific details regarding minimum lot size charges on finishes.


TGIC Powder Coat

TGIC Powder Coat

This polyester-based finish is well suited for bike racks made from mild steel, and is available in a wide variety of colors. Powder coating serves as a protective barrier to the various environment elements that cause corrosion. To further increase corrosion resistance, Sportworks recommends an additional zinc plated undercoat be applied prior to the powder coating process. Zinc acts as a sacrificial anode to protect the base metal from corrosion should the powder coat become chipped.

PPA-571 Thermoplastic Powder Coat

PPA-571 Thermoplastic Powder Coat

This thermoplastic finish is also well suited for mild steel racks, and Plascoat’s special formulation (PPA-571) produces a more flexible and robust coating. When compared to polyester-based powder coatings, PPA-571 thermoplastic powder coatings are tougher, more resistant to chips, and naturally graffiti resistant. This finish is also available in a wide variety of colors.

Bead Blast

Bead Blast

Unlike powder coating and galvanizing, this finish removes material during the application process, and is ideal for stainless steel racks. Small glass particles (media) traveling at high velocities impact the metal removing the outer surface, and resulting in a mildly-textured or matted finish. Similar to galvanizing, there are no color options available for this type of finish. Sportworks stainless steel bike racks represent the highest level of corrosion protection available.

Materials


Mild Steel

Mild Steel

Mild steel is a type of steel where the main alloying element is carbon. Having anywhere from .05% to .20% carbon, mild steel can still be bent and formed, but has mechanical properties that will provide a good amount of strength to the part being fabricated. Mild steel rusts and corrodes when exposed to air and moisture, so for outdoor applications, it must be coated with finishes such as galvanizing, plating, powder coating, thermoplastics, and painting. Without one or a combination of these finishes, mild steel can rust and corrode to the point of part failure.

Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel does not stain, corrode, or rust as easily as mild steel and is is used where both the properties of steel and resistance to corrosion are required. Stainless steel differs from mild steel by the amount of chromium and nickel that is present. Unprotected mild steel rusts readily when exposed to air and moisture.Stainless steels contain sufficient chromium and nickel to form a passive film of oxides, which prevents further surface corrosion and blocks corrosion from spreading into the metal's internal structure. Stainless steel can still corrode and discolor in some conditions, but in general it will retain its strength and appearance when exposed to the outdoors.

Green Certifications

At Sportworks, we take environmental responsibility very seriously. Our bike racks are made with post-industrial recycled steel. We trace the location of origin and material/chemical composition of all the raw materials and sourced components we use. We also monitor VOC content in our finishing materials, and use recycled content in our packaging materials.

Installation of Sportworks bike racks may assist your project in qualifying for the following green building certification programs:

LEED®

Sportworks bike racks can help you achieve one or more of the following points under the LEED 2009 Rating System:

  • SS Credit 4.2—Alternative Transportation—Bicycle Storage and Changing Rooms
    To qualify for this credit, commercial, institutional or residential buildings must provide secure bicycle parking within 200 yards of a building entrance.
  • MR Credit 4.1—Recycled Content—10% | MR Credit 4.2—Recycled Content—20%
    Our bike racks are constructed of 70-90% post-industrial recycled steel components, which may qualify for points for recycled content.
  • MR Credit 5.1—Regional Materials—10% Extracted, Processed & Manufactured Regionally | MR Credit 5.2—Regional Materials—20% Extracted, Processed & Manufactured Regionally
    Our manufacturing facilities are in the Pacific Northwest. If your project is within 500 miles of our factory in Woodinville, Washington, you may qualify for these credits.

Living Building Challenge

All Sportworks bike racks are fully compliant with the Materials Red List of the Living Building Challenge, which means they don't contain harmful materials including formaldehyde, halogenated flame retardants, PVC, lead, mercury, CFC's, HCFC's, neoprene (chloroprene) and cadmium.

Our bike racks may also help fulfill the Car-Free Living, Appropriate Sourcing, Conservation & Reuse, and the Human Scale & Humane Places imperatives within Version 2.0 of the Living Building Challenge.

Green Globes™

Sportworks bike racks can help you qualify for the following Green Globes™ credits:

  • E.2—Minimal consumption of resources
    Our bike racks are made with recycled content and may be considered locally manufactured depending on the location of your project in relation to our factory in Woodinville, Washington.
  • C.5—Energy Efficient Transportation
    Our bike racks allow you to meet the requirement of providing safe storage areas with fixed mountings for bicycles.
