Nigel Deacon, National Account Director at metroSTOR®, said: “The huge increase in cycle purchases over recent months is great news for sustainability, but unfortunately this has been more than matched by an increase in cycle theft.
“Professional gangs with cordless angle grinders make short work of almost any cycle lock so it is essential that bikes are kept within a secure store that does not rely solely on internal locking points to meet the necessary criteria.
“Secured by Design accreditation substantiates our commitment to providing products that meet the highest levels of security available on the market.”
SBD Development Officer Lyn Poole: "It's exciting to have metroSTOR® on board as our latest SBD licensed member. Their cycle and storage units are a great addition to our Police Preferred Specification products. I look forward to working with them over the coming years".
