Case Study: California State University Sacramento - Skateboard Parking
CSU Sacramento has a high population of students that skateboard. The school wanted to get boards out of classrooms
by offering a safe and secure place for them to park.
CSU Sacramento piloted a skateboard rack on campus to test for reaction. The idea was overwhelmingly positive and
students were drawn into the design and premise.
CSU Sacramento is now offering one of the countries elite skateboard racks, not only securing skateboards and long boards, but razor scooters as well.
““I skate and this is a great idea. Finally we are given the same opportunity as bicyclists, cars, and motorcycles to park. Great idea!”.”
- Matt Blanco, CSUS Student
With many of the locally fabricated racks, the quote "beauty is only skin deep" is very accurate. At Park A Bike it starts months before the coating was even a thought. A great coating starts with the design and fabrication to ensure longevity against the elements. Park A Bike's engineering team produced products for BMW and Land Rover and understands the importance of finish. From the very beginning of design, Park A Bike makes sure there are no locked-in chambers, and no overlapping surfaces of metal that can negate a great coating.
Powder Coat Finish
Park A Bike has a regimented 5-stage process. Our first three stages are a pre-treatment process, which is a critical step that ensures a clean application of our zinc-rich rust inhibitor primer pre-coat. The timing between the primer coat and the powder coat is calculated to ensure our best adhesion. Our polyester powder coating, triglycidyl isocyanurate (TGIC) powder, is then baked into the prepared product to total thickness of 10-12 mils. This makes our coating process tough enough to withstand the extreme weather and heavy usage conditions as well as chipping, rusting and fading up to 10 years. We closely monitor each step of the powder coating process to ensure that Park A Bike's high standard of quality is evident in every product we make.
Hot Dipped Galvanized Finish
This Park A Bike coating is suitable for more utilitarian applications. In the galvanizing process, we have a regimented 4-stage process. Our first three stages are a pre-treatment process, which is a critical step that ensures a clean application of our products before they are immersed in 98% pure molten zinc and allowed to dry in ambient air. The product is then hand-filed to remove any galvanizing flash. Galvanizing works best with embedment type of installations (in ground). The result is a 20-year product that isvirtually abrasion-resistant.

"The Park A Bike team made USD's bike rack upgrade a breeze! Once the new racks were installed around campus bike thefts drastically decreased and we noticed an increase in ridership. We love the clean look, durability, and easy usage of the bike racks. We highly recommend Park a Bike!"
"It was exciting how this happened. Not an hour after Donn had showed the product to me, you won (the award for Most Interesting Products)! And you won with good reason; I see a lot of bike parking stations but certainly nothing as unique and clever as yours."
Daryl Brach - Senior Sales Manager
"I’m glad to hear you won this (Most Interesting Products award)! I was one of the ones that voted for you. I found your product really good and I hope to be able to recommend it in the future.
Thanks for being at the ASLA meeting."
Jim Donovan, FASLA
"Thanks for following up with us. All the units have been installed and they fit perfectly... We are very happy with the bike racks and our docks as there is more space now to fit in more bikes, and the room looks more organized and fancier.
"Working with Park A Bike has allowed me to feel supported as if I have additional staff on my team. With their responsive, customer and user-focused service I am able to more efficiently and creatively address bicycle parking issues at CSUMB. So far I have not found a challenge their staff couldn't help me with, nor have I found any other bike racks that surpass the Varsity Rack Park A Bike product in quality, weather-resistance, function, aesthetics and security. I look forward to having them on my team for decades to come as we develop bike culture on our campus."
"We just opened the racks up for employee use and the feedback is very positive. The staff love the storage area and the bike racks."
Duane Hicks, Manager - Planning, Transportation, & Fleet Services, UC Davis Medical Center
