Harper Collins Publishers Receive Extensive FalcoPod Bike Hangars, Waiting Shelter and Refuse Store
These are the latest secure FalcoPod bike hangars installed this month at the new Harper Collins Publishers editorial office and distribution at Robroyston in Glasgow, which is currently the largest logistics development project in Scotland.
Each FalcoPod bike hangar provides secure cycle parking for up to six bikes each, providing a total of 60 secure cycle parking spaces for employee use. Each bike hangar has been supplied with instructional signage, powder coated in a Harper Collins blue RAL colour and Harper Collins branding graphics.
Installed outside the main entrance, each secure bike hangar takes up no more room than a single car parking space and is capable of accommodating all types of cycles - from road and mountain bikes to bikes with a child seat on the back or storage basket on the front.
A 12m waiting and smoking shelter has been installed next to the bike hangars, made up of a series of three 4m FalcoQuarter shelters, one starter section and two add-on sections. The modular nature of the FalcoQuarter allows additional shelters bays to be added or removed in the future.
A secure 5m x 4m FalcoLok-500 refuse store has also been installed next to the waiting shelter, clad in sustainable hardwood slats and fitted with double doors and a secure access system.
FalcoPod Bike Hangar
The FalcoPod bike hangar, as shown here at Harper Collins Publications, is a robust on-street cycle parking solution designed to meet the needs of cyclists who don’t have access to private cycle parking facilities. The improved innovative shape means that users no longer have to remove some baskets or child seats when storing their bike!
Falco design is both evolutionary and innovative by nature and the new FalcoPod is no exception. This is the third generation of ‘bike hangar’ type product building on the pedigree of the original street locker the ‘Midi Bike Box’ with some great new features over existing products as follows:
Size - fits in half a car parking space and houses 6 bikes, with covered weather protection.
Family inclusive – with an ergonomically improved design, the additional space/height (55% more) means there is no need to remove child seats or baskets from the back or front of bikes.
Bike security - the six place FalcoSound bike rack has three locking points including the ability to use a ‘D’ lock through the rear wheel and frame.
Easy access - single door with integral lock and gas strut for assisted lifting.
