Kirkella St. Andrews Community Primary School Encourage Cycling Uptake with New Falco Cycle Shelters
With the aim of encouraging cycling uptake to and from school, Kirk Ella St Andrews Community Primary School in Kirk Ella, commisioned a 10m cycle shelter run to provide students with up to 24 secure cycle parking spaces.
Falco dismantled and disposed of the previous, tired, cycle shelter facility and installed two five metre FalcoQuarter cycle shelters coupled with twelve surface fix Sheffield Stands. The steelwork of the cycle shelter was powder coated in RAL 9005 Jet Black to enhance durability.
The popular FalcoQuarter cycle shelter was chosen for its open and spacious design as well as its capability to provide mass cycle parking where cost is the main constrain.
The image attached shows the two new cycle shelter additions, installed to the east of the school grounds, next to the playing fields, with a space-saving single central support post combining both cycle shelters together.
It’s been a busy year here at Falco and the scheme shown here for Kirk Ella St Andrews Primary School is only one of many cycle parking and shelter installations for schools and universities installed by Falco during the lockdown periods. Some other recent installations include a roll-out to sixteen primary schools for Hackney Council last month, bespoke shelters for Ada Lovelace High School in Ealing, cycle shelters for the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge and shelters for Leeds Trinity & All Saints University College.
