FalcoSail Cycle Shelter for Accrington Eco-Station

Falco has recently supplied the FalcoSail cycle shelter to the UK’s first Eco-Station in Accrington. The first of a new generation of carbon neutral sustainable railway stations recently opened to the public at Accrington and offers the very latest in ‘green’ technology to help tackle the increasing pressure of becoming more environmentally friendly. The state of the art building has been built on the old Eagle Street car park and has been designed using green technologies including grey water collection, solar power & photovoltaic cells.

In order to support the theme of sustainability, Falco supplied the Eco-Station with a FalcoSail cycle shelter to enable passengers to securely accommodate their bicycles during travelling times. The cycle shelters partner the environmental theme of the building and promote cycling as a sustainable mode of transport. Additionally the cycle shelters support the Eco-Station’s aims of reducing its carbon footprint and encouraging members of the public to commute to the station by bicycle, in order to reduce exhaust emissions and create a better quality of life.

FalcoSail Cycle Shelter
The FalcoSail cycle shelter offers an aesthetical attractive cycle shelter whilst boasting a solid construction and great design lines. The FalcoSail cycle shelter can accommodate up to 10 bikes, however like all Falco cycle shelters, the FalcoSail is modular in design enabling a cycle shelter to be built up to house any number of cycles in various combinations. The cycle shelter also provides alternative cost effective solutions and can be used as a smoking shelter, waiting shelter, buggy shelter or storage shelter.
