Dero

We’ve all seen them- bicycle racks that string along the front of shopping centers all over the country. If you’re going to consider Dero’s product line of bicycle racks, you’ll have to throw the mental picture of ordinary bike racks out the window. 

Though Dero does have the traditional bike rack style in their commercial product line, you’ll find that it’s only a sliver of what they bring to the outdoor security décor scene. Bright colors, wide radius pipe work, creativity, and engineering mastery, cause Dero bike racks to work above their function, entering into the realm of fanciful outdoor furniture. 

Dero Racks and Related Products

Custom Bike Racks

If you’re looking for street art that couples as a bike rack, and can’t find a suitable option within the commercial line, it’s time to go custom. Dero offers a custom service where the designers will work with customers to achieve any possible rack design. 

Bike Shelters

What’s worse than an employee, after a long day’s work, coming out to his bike just to sit on a damp seat after a day of rain? Or kids getting out of school to ride their wet, slippery pedaled bike on the ride home?

Bike shelters are the solution to problems like this, and Dero offers several different solutions through 6 of their bike shelter units.

  • Veloport
  • Pocket Shelter
  • Bike Depot
  • Cycle Station
  • Vizor Shelter
  • Kolo Shelter

Each of these unit types does the same thing (keep bikes out of direct weather), but are all stylistically different. Each is worth a look over at the Dero Website.

Bike Lockers

Dero offers bike lockers that come in a variety of shapes, styles, and sizes, all geared toward suiting different special and aesthetic needs while keeping bikes under lock and key.

Their lines of boke lockers are:

  • Veloport
  • Dero Single Locker
  • Vertical Bike Locker
  • Two-Tier Bike Locker
  • Dero Double Locker
  • Bike Locker 300-Series
  • Bike Locker 350-Series

Miscellaneous Bike Products

Supporting their bicycle-centric units are a myriad of bike-related products such as repair kits, air pumps, tool kits, signs, and outdoor furnishings.

Final Thoughts

Just because something is functional, doesn’t mean that it has to be dull to look at. After having a look at the products available from Dero, you’ll quickly see they’ve successfully found the sweet spot between function and style.

You can furnish a parking lot with a rack system that will either be an eye sore or an aesthetically pleasing addition to the environment. This company can certainly do both, but the creative engineers at Dero would undoubtedly choose to do the latter if they had any say on the matter.
