Our team developed a tough, high quality scooter rack that can be used by schools, universities and cafes using light weight metal materials

Australian designed and made metal scooter racks

Scooter Parking Rack designed and manufactured in Australia by ENCAT

ENCAT has supplied lots of schools, local councils and universities with our bicycle parking racks & skateboard storage racks. Although one of the biggest changes we have seen has been the use of scooters, both powered and non-powered.

In a recent Bicycling Australia report they measured the types of mobility devices being used in certain locations. Some sites had triple the amount of usage from 2019 to 2020 for short wheelbase scooters;

  • 124% increase along the Bay Trail in Brighton.
  • 70% increase in the Melbourne CBD.
  • 28% increase along the Outer Harbour Greenway in Adelaide.
  • 157% increase on the Kangaroo Bay Foreshore in Hobart.
  • 25% in Parramatta.
  • 74% along the South Perth Foreshore.

 

Therefore it has been no surprise that ENCAT has been asked to design and manufacture a scooter rack that can be used in Australia.

ENCAT has now become one of the leading choices for the supply of Australian scooter parking racks. We followed the same conceptual design that we had developed for our skateboard rack to create a unique & tough scooter rack product for sale in Australia.

Our goal was to make sure the scooter rack we designed would be suitable for Australian conditions, be cost-effective, using high quality Australian materials, extremely user-friendly and be safe to use in public spaces. 

We have utilised light-weight Australian metal materials that are strong, but light enough to ensure minimal freight costs. The galvanised finish will make sure they last a long time and handle any type of punishment from the weather or people using them. 

The ENCAT scooter racks are used in remote locations like Alice Springs and Kalgoorlie, overseas in the USA and in public spaces in Australia.

Using our expertise we also designed a skateboard rack that can be used in schools, universities and other public places like parks, train stations or recreational areas. Using the same design philosophies we applied to the bike racks, we created a design that can;

  • Be wall or floor mounted.

  • Can be powder coated to suit the aesthetic of the area.

  • Include security locks if required.

  • Be placed in sheltered or outdoor locations.
