STANDARD PRODUCT OPTIONS
Most Dero products are available in three following standard mounting options:
Metal flange anchors to the ground with included wedge anchors. Other special anchors such as tamperproof nuts are also available.
Rack is embedded into concrete surface
Racks are bolted to rails which may be anchored to surface or left free-standing
Dero offers the following finish options on most products:
Hot dipped galvanized is an extremely durable and low cost finish option. The bike racks are hot-dipped galvanized after fabrication and then hand ground to ensure a clean, safe surface. Unless otherwise noted, a hot dipped galvanized finish is included in the cost of all Dero products.
Stainless steel is the most beautiful and durable option. We use a 304 grade stainless steel which will continue to look new and attractive for many years.
Dero offers a rubbery, durable, black PVC coating on many models of bike racks. A rust-inhibiting pre-treatment is applied to the underlying steel before being dipped in UV-stabilized PVC. The coating is subsequently cured to produce a colorful coating that offers excellent protection against abrasion, impact, and corrosion. The PVC coating can be applied to galvanized racks to provide an even greater level of corrosion protection.
Powder coating provides a durable finish using a solvent-free process that is better for the environment than liquid paints. If our 20 standard colors aren’t enough we can match to over 250 custom colors.
Surface preparation for applying a thermoplastic finish is the same as is done with powder coating. Unlike powder coating, no primer is required. The thickness of the thermoplastic finish is more than powder coating, typically from 8 – 10 mils. In addition to an increased thickness, the thermoplastic finish offers superior impact resistance over powder coating.
