Home Case Studies Ayrshire College is the Latest Education Establishment to Take Delivery of FalcoPod Bike Hangars

These are the latest secure bike hangars manufactured, supplied and installed by Falco for Ayrshire College’s Kilwinning Campus on Lauchlan Way, Kilwinning. Commissioned for staff and student use, the four new bike hangars provide the college with 24 secure cycle parking spaces, all within a sheltered lockable unit.

The design of each bike hangar includes the colleges own logo, instructional signage and powder coating in an attractive ‘Turquoise Blue’ RAL colour for additional durability.

Installed near to the main car park, each bike hangar takes up no more room than a single car parking space and is capable of accommodating all types of cycles - from road and mountain bikes to bikes with a child seat on the back or storage basket on the front.

The FalcoPod bike hangar, as shown here at Ayrshire College, is a robust on-street cycle parking solution designed to meet the needs of cyclists who don’t have access to private cycle parking facilities. The improved innovative shape means that users no longer have to remove some baskets or child seats when storing their bike!

Falco design is both evolutionary and innovative by nature and the new FalcoPod is no exception. This is the third generation of ‘bike hangar’ type product building on the pedigree of the original street locker the ‘Midi Bike Box’ with some great new features over existing products as follows:

Size - fits in half a car parking space and houses 6 bikes, with covered weather protection.

Family inclusive – with an ergonomically improved design, the additional space/height (55% more) means there is no need to remove child seats or baskets from the back or front of bikes.

Bike security - the six place FalcoSound bike rack has three locking points including the ability to use a ‘D’ lock through the rear wheel and frame.

Easy access - single door with integral lock and gas strut for assisted lifting.

The effective bike hangar has already been successfully rolled out to the London Borough of Waltham ForestBrentCamdenWestminster and Merton Councils.
