North School Increases Cycle Parking Facilities
The North School in Ashford originally contacted Falco back in 2007 as the need to provide a secure cycle parking compound became apparent, due to the increasing amount of students travelling to school by bike. Falco were then able to provide The North School with a variety of different cycle parking solutions that fit within their budget and provide the exact services the North School was looking for. The robust FalcoTel-D was the ideal product identified to accommodate the student’s bicycles.
Following the success of the first installation and due to a further increase of students commuting to school by bike, in 2009 the school required an additional FalcoTel-D cycle shelter to keep pace with the student’s demands for additional cycle parking.
In addition to the previous two installations The North School then requested a further FalcoTel-D shelter to optimise their current facility as the number of student’s cycling to school continued to rise. The attached images shows our recent installation of the FalcoTel-D cycle parking shelter taken on a crisp autumn afternoon.
The cycle shelter FalcoTel-D is a double sided variant of the FalcoTel-E. With a distinct ‘Y’ shaped section, the FalcoTel-D has great symmetrical lines as well as complimenting the single sided cycle shelter of the range. As an ‘island’ unit, the FalcoTel-D cycle shelter can be used as a stand alone unit or in rows to create a large storage compound. The shelter is constructed using sustainable hardwood and a galvanised steel frame to BS EN ISO 1461.
The pitched roof section channels rainwater to the centre of the structure where it is collected in a gutter and discharged via a drain pipe to ground level, to ensure that users stay dry.
