Falco Completes Contemporary Cycle Hub at Dewsbury Station!
This is the contemporary cycle hub Falco designed, manufactured, supplied and installed at Dewsbury Railway Station. It provides the TransPennine Express (TPE) station with a complete cycle hub facility including 60 secure FalcoLevel-Premium+ two-tier cycle parking spaces, a convenient FalcoFix repair and maintenenace station, FalcoBloc seating, an information board, vinyl graphics and hub lighting, all in a spacious purpose built design.
Falco also supplied and installed cycle wheel stair ramps at the station to enable cyclists to manouvre their bikes up and down steps with ease and access the cycle park conveniently positioned on the platform.
The contemporary cycle store is manufactured from a combination of powder coated steel and laminated glass to be sympathetic to the surrounding area and was developed by Falco’s in house design team to ensure it met the client’s specification including structural calculations to demonstrated that he glass would not be affected by the vacuum created by fast trains passing through the station. The two-tier cycle racks are housed in a bespoke contemporary design of the classic FalcoLok shelter, which feature clean lines through the glass cladding supported by stainless steel glass clamps. The whole shelter is hot dip galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 and then polyester powder coated in RAL 9007 Grey Aluminium. Rainwater is collected via innovative integral gutters as part of the roof system.
Going forward, the shelters are designed to be maintenance free providing minimal cost of ownership to the client (only occasional cleaning and statutory inspections required) and additionally should there be any unforeseen damage, the modular nature of the structure means that replacing any damaged items is simple to undertake.
