Cora Bike Rack is an Australian owned and operated company that has been devoted to improving Australia’s cycling infrastructure since 1997. They are also cycling enthusiasts and believe that by designing better bicycle parking products, people will want to ride bikes to more places, more often.

As industry leaders, they are able to provide expert advice on compliant product designs and ensure architects and specifiers are using the most space efficient and user friendly bike facility for their project.

Their expertise saw them play a significant role in the creation of the current Australian Standard AS2890.3 (2015) – a set of minimum requirements for the layout, design and security of bicycle parking facilities for architects, planners, builders, property managers and service providers. The Standard includes clear requirements and criteria for selecting compliant bicycle parking products. 

Commercial bicycle parking systems

Cora Bike Rack designs and manufacturers DA and Green Star compliant commercial bicycle parking systems including bike racks, lockers and repair stations.

All their products are designed thoughtfully for ease of use, ease of installation and attractive aesthetics.

Cora believes the building and manufacturing industries are uniquely positioned to reduced environmental damage by maximising the use of eco-friendly products. They use steel materials that are designed for durability and can be recycled. Their packaging materials are made from recycled materials and are recyclable. In fact, Cora provides the only bike parking products in Australia to be certified by EcoSpecifier. 

Cora Bike Rack’s mission is to support and encourage bicycle transport with the aim of reducing the use of vehicles on the road and reducing harmful emissions.

Cora Bike Rack and NBS Source

Cora Bike Rack chose to list their technical product information on NBS Source out of a desire to develop greater recognition and understanding of their product range, as well as make it easy for architects to accurately specify the products they wish to use in their projects. 

According to Jon Rutledge, Cora Bike Rack Director, NBS Source takes the guess work out of specification, to ensure the desired product is purchased and installed as intended.

Through the recent acquisition of EzySpec by NBS Australia, Jon is looking forward to seeing Cora products specified on a larger number of projects and winning more business.

How does NBS Source work?

NBS Source is a unified digital platform that exposes manufacturer products to specifiers with the right information at the right time. It allows specifiers to find, compare and select products and manufacturers using intuitive search, and includes everything a specifier needs to make design decisions – product properties, certifications, associated brochures and data sheets, specification clauses and digital objects.

Unlike any other product search platform, product data in NBS Source is integrated directly into our specification tool, NBS Chorus, and into design tools including Autodesk Revit and Graphisoft Archicad. This means your products can be found and added by specifiers as they are working on their project specifications.
