Newport City Council is the Latest Local Authority to Take Delivery of Secure FalcoPod Bike Hangars
These are the latest secure bike hangars installed this summer on behalf of Newport City Council. Commisioned for staff and customer use at the historic Waterloo Hotel & Bistro on Alexandra Road, Newport, the two new bike hangars provide secure cycle parking for up to six bikes each.
The design of each bike hangar includes the Council’s own logo, instructional signage in both English and Welsh and powder coating in an attractive Moss Green RAL colour for additional durability.
Installed at the hotel car park, 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.
FalcoPod Bike Hangar
The FalcoPod bike hangar, as shown here at Newport City Council, 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.
