Overview Vertical+ No Scratch®

Vertical+ No Scratch® Bike Rack

Say hello to the Vertical+ No Scratch® Bike Rack, from Sportworks, the innovator of the widely regarded No-Scratch® and Plaza sidewalk bike parking solutions. With an exclusive no-sag truss design, square tube construction, anti-theft hardware, rear tire support to keep bikes in place and wide adaptability, this is the rack that everybody has been asking for and specifying. Our proprietary No Scratch® bumper protects bikes from getting scratched while loading, unloading and storing bikes.  Endless configurability allows for many different layouts based on the space provided.  The innovative rack design allows the Vertical+ No Scratch® to fit in places where a traditional double decker rack won't. The Vertical+ No Scratch® also allows for mounting against a wall or a free standing configuration based on the requirements of the project.

Additionally, we offer the following user benefits:

  • No Scratch® bumper protects bikes
  • Gear hanger (jacket/bag/helmet)
  • Square tube construction
  • U-lock compatible
  • Cushioned wheel hook
  • Rear tire support
  • Exclusive no-sag truss design
  • Exclusive anti-theft features (two options available)

Typical configurations come in 13" and 16" spacing to maximize space efficiency and usability. Additionally we do offer 18" (and above) spacing to comply with regulations in cities such as Los Angeles and Portland, OR.

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.

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.

Powder Coat Colors

Sportworks offers the Vertical+Square Tube Rack in the following dark steel gray color which is pearlescent with 80% gloss metallic. Custom colors are available, and subject to minimum orders and lot charges.
