Asgard’s outdoor bike storage solutions suchlike this 2-bike storehouse comprise a bodywork of industrial grade steel engineered substantially secure.
Constituting intruder-proof locks and internal steel anchor placements inclusive of grounding bolts, once rooted to concrete foundations these bike lockers become deeply entrenched & virtually immovable.
Asgard’s 2-Bike Locker
This particular post concentrates on the locker that securely & discreetly shelters two bikes in a weatherproof enclosure of low-maintenance heavyweight steel.
After receiving feedback from customers that simply do not have room outside their home to construct & accommodate large walk-in lockers Asgard have responded by designing this mini-secure shelter to fit requirements, it’s a popular bike-locker.
One large single door stretching the width simplifies access to comfortably wheel two adult bikes inside meanwhile the unobtrusive size ideally locates to serve confined areas outside the home. Design accents presented in the colour shades of ivory, green or brown admirably enhance home-yard settings.
Engineering an assortment of secure cycle storehouses with designs stretching from accommodating single bikes that position in narrow home-yard spaces up to roomy steel walk-in units able to store in excess of 8 bikes, Asgard have become a prominent force within this sector.
Substantial Protection against Corrosion
Encased in coloured polyester complements this website’s low-maintenance passion a treat, a preservative coating that assures resolute weatherproofing, endorsed by 10 years of Asgard’s two-bike-store warranty cover.
Beneath the encasement of polyester a treatment of zinc-plate galvanising overcomes corrosion issues therefore you won’t be confined to annually re-coating the steel panels with primer and gloss, an arduous time-consuming job to say the least.
The combined structural weight of this unit surpasses 15 stone, characterising the thickness of steel-grade to which coincidentally simplifies assembly far beyond resin constructions owing to their sturdiness therefore devoid from supplementary reinforcements.
Asgard’s 2-Bike Locker Features
Is Crime-Rate On-the-Up in Your Area?
What’s the breaking & entering statistics like where you live? We’re constantly being told the figures are falling – Yeah right!
Either locked-up in a garage or a secure safe-house such as a grounded steel locker has become a necessity for storing expensive bikes where we live unfortunately, burglaries are rife.
The front of our townhouse’s mid-position is rather open to intruders & trespasses roaming around whereas accessing our secluded back garden represents quite a different scenario which would entail jumping a few neighbours gardens before gaining access to ours therefore the security a resin construction provides is sufficient around the back.
Asgard take inspiration and recommendations from the police force and crime prevention authorities to deter the most determined of break-in attempts by uniting forces with the locksmith association and steel industry in designing & engineering substantial heavy-duty vault-alike constructions.
Structurally Defeats Break-In Attempts
The 99 kg of heavy-grade steel making up this locker is constructed from inside therefore no exposed screws are externally present for tampering.
Inside the steel encasement is where the defence against break-ins is engineered by double-folding the steel around vulnerable weak-spots suchlike the door jamb, the internal boundary of the door and where panels connect during construction. This process stops crowbars accessing door gaps and prising the steel apart in order to gain entry.
Asgard’s impressive locking mechanism protects entry virtue of locking in 3 positions whereby three steel shoot bolts simultaneously embed deep within the steel frame upon turning the handle. Adjacent to the handle a steel bar shoots into the door jamb meanwhile two 10mm thick steel rods implant above & below the surrounding steel framework.
The door lock is protectively shrouded, recessed and welded within the door’s internal side accomplishing heavy-duty intruder-free armoured defense meanwhile galvanizing assures weather-resistance, maintenance here merely involves an oil spray to keep the key-turn running smooth.
The locksmith designed Euro-cylinder key-lock device additionally enhances the 3-way locking mechanism’s ultra toughness by resisting the power of drills and lock-pick abuse, deterring the most persistent attempts of break-in entry.
Hooks to Hang Accessories
Although these mini dimensions unobtrusively station beneath the conventional house window, this deceptively spacious interior caters to accommodate biking accessories suchlike servicing equipment, gloves & helmets etc.
Two hook packs made from identical grade steel position at various placements across the framework, fixed in a jiffy by screwing into pre-drilled holes, delivering a sturdy place to hang.
There’s the option of having a left or right-hand opening door to suit your location however this desired specification has to be stated when ordering. I would send a message on the sales site if this option is not presented.
The door’s steel hinges may require the occasional lick of oil to prevent squeaks and to ascertain they keep swinging sweet, apart from that a soapy scrub with warm water simply maintains Asgard’s polished appearance.

Anchoring Determines an Unyielding Construction
The prerequisite for this two-bike store’s foundations regard situating on a solid 50-75mm thick substrate suchlike, tarmac, paving, asphalt or concrete to ascertain rigid anchoring is undertaken meanwhile it’s imperative the ground is level thereby assuring the perpendicular construction stations & serves accordingly.
Both Asgard’s single & double bike lockers are absent from an integrated steel floor, the 3-bike stores upwards incorporate flooring however running around this perimeter’s steel construction, the bodywork internally folds at right-angles down at ground level into which pre-drilled 8mm fixing holes provide the anchor placements, the same principles apply at the door’s steel threshold.
A drill is required for drilling the anchor holes into the sold ground with a 6mm drill-bit followed by anchoring the locker down with the supplied grounding screws whereby a 13mm socket fits the bolt head.
Two people can construct these bike lockers in a couple of hours, their basic heavy-gauge design impressively simplifies construction virtue of internally bolting together prior to delivering anchorage, as demonstrated in the fast-forwarded video below.
