London Borough of Brent TfL Underground Stations Receive Falco Cycle Stands!
These are the upgraded TfL standard Sheffield cycle stands, Falco recently manufactured, supplied and installed for a number of London Underground Stations within the London Borough of Brent last month! Falco’s installation team which has the UK requirement of NRSWA ‘Street Works’ certification for work on the public highway, undertook the project to increase cycle parking capacity in the Borough by 126 spaces.
Taking the traditional Sheffield stand a step further, the enhanced TfL stand has an integral tapping rail to provide for people with impaired vision as well as improved stability and branding options for the Council plus a superior user experience for the cyclist.
Falco installed 63 of the powder coated Sheffield Stands to four stations within zone 2 and 3 on the London Underground network, at Willesden Station, Kensal Green Station, Kilburn Park Station and Stonebridge Station.
Each below ground fix cycle stand is coated in a Jet Black RAL colour to improve durability with distinctive cycle parking branded vinyl stickers.
London Borough of Brent received the following cycle stand allocation to each station:
Willesden Station: 26 Stands
Kensal Green Station: 6 Stands
Kilburn Station: 13 Stands
Stonebridge Station: 18 Stands
Falco provided complete design, manufacture, supply and installation to the London Borough of Brent, coupled with a free site survey and free rendering graphics to help visualise the scheme.
The upgraded Sheffield Stand with tapping rail is used across the UK and a great way to promote cycling organisations, companies or charities within a community. The cycle stand is even more sturdy than the original, a fantastic aid to assist visually impaired people and provides increased security and support for smaller bikes.
