FalcoZan Cycle Shelter with Sliding Gates for the University of Loughborough

Home Case Studies FalcoZan Cycle Shelter with Sliding Gates for the University of Loughborough

Loughborough University originally contacted Falco back in 2009 as the requirement for secure cycle parking shelters became apparent due to the increasing volume of students travelling to the University by bike. Falco has since provided Loughborough University with a whole range of cycle parking and cycle shelter solutions and this is the latest example for the Pilkington Library area. The FalcoZan shelter fitted within budget and provided the exact specifications the university was looking for. This robust range of cycle shelters was chosen for it's modularity (capable of being extended in any orientation) and also having a number of locking options including this effective sliding gate, providing a lockable facility to keep bike security to a maximum.

Following the successful completion of this first installation and a further increase of students travelling to university by bike, Loughborough University acquired an assortment of FalcoZan cycle shelters across the Universities sites. Since the location of this new cycle shelter was next to a road, the cycle shelter was designed from the university's need to keep the shelter lockable, as with the previous project. To ensure that these gates did not open out wide causing a potential hazard with oncoming traffic, the cycle shelter was designed with sliding gates by Falco's design team, keeping the cycle shelter compact and away from the road. The image attached, taken on a crisp autumn morning, shows the completed cycle shelter installation equipped with toaster rack to accommodate a further 10 bikes.
