Essentially every urban area across the U.S. has determined that bicycles are an essential part of the solution to help wean the county off its car dependency and to expand the pedestrian culture of our cities. 500 million dollars is lost annually to bicycle theft, but the real impact is on discouraged potential riders due to the absence of secure parking in urban areas.
Meshroom turns the concept of bike security on its head (pun intended) and offers an effective, economical means of securing bikes in a range of conditions. With the structural efficiency and flexibility of a tent, and the openness and resilience of a metal mesh fabric, the Meshroom is a simple solution to a complex range of issues.
The 95% transparent galvanized mesh side panels allow natural ventilation and upper panels of layered mesh and PTFE membrane for weather resistance will ensure visibility, a comfort to users. The Meshroom’s up lit PFE membrane, at night, will be an inviting and iconic urban landmark and a reminder to travel by bike.
