Granton Harbour Takes Delivery of Ten Secure Cycle Lockers for new Waterfront Housing Development

Home Case Studies Granton Harbour Takes Delivery of Ten Secure Cycle Lockers for new Waterfront Housing Development

These are the secure FalcoCrea cycle lockers Falco recently manufactured, supplied and installed for Granton Harbour in Edinburgh – a new waterfront mixed housing development, bringing 306 affordable homes to the north Edinburgh coast.

Robust cycle parking was at the forefront of the initial design stage of the flagship development, aiming to provide up to 1,300 residents with a sustainable, cost-effective mode of transport.

The City of Edinburgh Council project aims to help more people choose cycling as an affordable and sustainable way of travel for everyday journeys and has been developed in partnership with the nation’s cycling charity, Cycling Scotland and supported by Transport Scotland grant funding.

This month, Falco supplied and installed ten FalcoCrea cycle lockers, providing Granton Harbour residents with up to 40 secure cycle spaces, all within an eye-catching, compact cycle locker design.

As a registered supplier of sustainable wood, all three Falco shelters have been clad in FSC® certified hardwood, designed to be sympathetic to the surrounding area. Each FalcoCrea cycle store features double doors for easy accessibility and all shelters incorporate cylinder locks for high security.

The FalcoCrea has proven to be a highly popular cycle locker since its launch providing local authorities and housing associations with a cycle parking solution which answers three common problems; security, spacing footprint and branding. The FalcoCrea is designed to provide maximum security, within a compact space saving design and fully capable of incorporating branding to promote cycling as a principal mode of transport.

The ingenious cycle locker has already been commissioned for a number of schemes across the UK including recent installations at; Moray Carshare charity, The Social Bite Village in Edinburgh, Rouken Glen Park in Glasgow and Barra Airport and Oban Airport.

With the use of an electric cycle charging point (FalcoCrea+), the cycle locker can be transformed into a convenient charging hub for electric bikes whilst retaining all of the benefits from the standard model. Additionally, many European housing developments use the FalcoCrea as a combined bin store and cycling store, providing residents with practical yet great looking facility keeping their property neat.
