Falco Begins the Roll-out of the UK’s First Ever Series of Smart Bike Hangars with Mobile App Access for Brighton & Hove City Council
This month, Falco began the roll-out of the UK’s first ever series of smart bike hangars with integrated mobile app access for Brighton & Hove City Council.
The first twenty hangars have already been installed across Brighton, with a further eighty units to be installed, providing the seaside resort with a total fleet of 100 next generation bike hangars, equalling 600 secure on-street cycle parking spaces.
Each futuristic bike hangar provides Brighton residents with quick and easy accessibility via the users smartphone. The user simply downloads the app, registers for a space, is granted accessibility via the back office and then can access their chosen hangar within seconds. For users without a smartphone, a physical key can be supplied instead.
The images attached show the new smart residential bike hangar installations, supplied with bespoke Brighton & Hove City Council branding graphics, installed across Brighton at locations including Queen’s Park Road, Scotland Street, King’s Road, Coventry Street, Belgrave Street, Hamilton Road and Hythe Road.
As well as manufacture and installation, Falco is also providing a fully managed service with both app and key rental management for the residents and bike hangar maintenance on behalf of the Brighton & Hove City Council Highways and Infrastructure team.
The Falco Rentals website enables Brighton residents to look for free spaces in the bike hangar network, book an available space and pay online, all in one place. The Falco Rentals website also provides a useful video along with other ideas and tips on safely looking after a bike.
In addition to the Bike Hangars for Brighton & Hove City Council shown here, Falco also provides a fully managed service of Bike Hangars for a number of other Council’s including the London Borough Westminster, London Borough of Brent, London Borough of Camden, London Borough of Southwark and the London Borough of Merton.
The smart FalcoPod bike hangar as shown here in Brighton, is a simple and effective cycle parking facility designed to meet the needs of cyclists who don’t have access to private cycle parking facilities. Operating like a giant bread bin, each hangar is a secure and lockable unit capable of accommodating up to six bikes each.
