Streetpod achieves new Sold Secure Diamond accreditation
Secured by Design member company Cyclepods are delighted to announce that their Streetpod has been awarded the new Sold Secure Diamond accreditation at its annual testing this year, making the Streetpod the most secure bike rack in the UK.
The Streetpod, one of the Cyclepods products which has achieved Police Preferred Specification for its security, has achieved Silver Sold Secure for many years without fail, so when presented with the opportunity to apply for Diamond level testing, Cyclepods were confident that the Streetpod would pass with flying colours.
The Diamond level of security was introduced for certain product categories, including bicycle security testing for bike locks and cycle storage, and means that accredited products have undergone testing to a more intense degree.
Parts of the Streetpod that were tested for security were the MDPE shell, the outer hoop and internal locking hoop and the fixing bolts for securing the Streetpod to a hardstanding surface.
A range of different tools commonly used by thieves were used to ‘attack’ the Streetpod. No damage or compromise was made to the Streetpod within the 5-minute cut off time required for Diamond accreditation.
The Streetpod is Cyclepods’ bestselling secure bike rack, each one holds two bikes in a ‘high-low’ design to avoid handlebar clashes and save space (30% less space is used compared to traditional racks).
The Streetpod is manufactured from 100% recyclable MDPE with a reinforced steel hoop which features an internal solid steel locking hoop. Bikes are secured with the front wheel encased in the shell, meaning thieves cannot access the quick release, and the back wheel and frame can be secured through the internal locking hoop with just one D-lock.
Available in a range of colours and even stone effect finishes, with the black Streetpod being 100% recyclable, the Streetpod can be customised to match branding or suit different environments.
