Leiden University in the Netherlands Receives Bespoke Cycle Compound
This is the striking new bespoke cycle compound designed, manufactured, supplied and installed by Falco for Leiden University in the Netherlands!
Adopting the popular FalcoRail design, two runs of 14m single-sided cycle canopy were positioned face to face with a central walkway cover, creating a lockable, yet airy and spacious cycle compound.
Surrounding the cycle compound, an ingenious and distinctive fencing structure was erected, with two sides consisting of powder coated steel mesh and two sides of reinforced safety glass, all mounted onto a powder coated steel frame. All steelwork was powder coated in an anthracite grey RAL colour to enhance durability.
Inside the cycle compound, a series of 132 spaces of the FalcoLevel-Premium+ two-tier cycle rack were installed, providing students with twice as many cycle spaces within the space envelope available, in comparison to using traditional cycle stands or racks.
Pictured here in the middle of a July heatwave, is the impressive new cycle compound located outside the Van Steenis Building to the North West of the campus. Leiden University is Holland’s oldest university and consistently ranks amongst the top 100 public research universities in the world by prominent international ranking tables.
In addition to Leiden University shown here, Falco has also installed the popular FalcoRail and FalcoLevel two-tier cycle parking system to many other universities across the UK including the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, University of Edinburgh, University of Brighton and Leeds Beckett University.
Two key products of the scheme are the tried and tested FalcoLevel-Premium+ two-tier cycle parking system which meets the stringent ‘FietsParKeur’ cycle rack standard and the EN 1090 accredited FalcoRail cycle canopy, which have both been used for universities and education establishments throughout Europe. When combined together, the Falco facilities create the ultimate cycle park - providing cyclists with high levels of cycle security in a spacious contemporary canopy design.
