The Increased Need for Security Racks on College Campuses

The desire for alternative transportation is steadily increasing. More and more people are riding bikes, scooters, skateboards, and more in lieu of driving or taking the bus. Choosing alternative transportation allows people to make healthier decisions as well as reduce their spending on the cumbersome costs of a vehicle. 

Unfortunately, the increase in alternative modes of transportation bring about challenges for campuses, businesses, and the like. No need to worry, though. This is where BoardLoch comes in and offers several solutions that engage students and faculty and aides to offset the main issues establishments are facing when dealing with alternative transportation. 

The increase in alternative transportation has led to reduced availability for students and faculty to store their bikes, scooters, skateboards, etc. Therefore, this leaves them frustrated and takes an abundance of time for people to find a different yet suitable option for secure storage. The limited rack availability also leads to individuals utilizing school property as a means to secure their items which can be damaging, less effective, and overall undesirable for all parties. 

Other aspects to consider are clutter and theft. When the availability of storage spaces are limited it can lead to a clutter effect as multiple other transportation devices are left in heaps or tied up to light poles, benches, and other items. This overall disheveled look across campus isn’t ideal. Along with clutter, theft becomes a rising fear amongst different individuals trying but failing to secure their items. If there aren’t any spaces left, the student is unable to find an alternative securement for their items, it’s entirely possible people will pretend to lock it up to a surrounding object or another item which can result in stolen equipment.

The first thing to consider when combatting cluttered campuses, limited storage availability, theft, and overall dissatisfaction from students/faculty is increasing the number of storage racks across campus. It’s best to identify which security racks best suit your campus and implement them in high traffic areas to serve a larger audience.

If adding more security racks on campus is not an option consider looking into a combination rack. This allows multiple storage solutions for scooters, skateboard, and bicycles simultaneously. Combination racks are one of our highly sought after racks because they continue to serve a majority of individuals due to the multi-item storage it offers.

BoardLoch understands that people are wanting to reduce their carbon footprint, save money, and make healthier choices. That’s why we do out best to create patented security racks for bicycles, skateboards, and scooters as well as combination racks. Having ample racks across campus serves the student body and faculty immensely. Continue to support your campus through keeping it decluttered but also through making the faculty and student body feel heard and understood.
