Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust Receives Bespoke Falco Cycle Hub
This is the bespoke FalcoHub recently designed, manufactured, supplied and installed by Falco for the Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust in West Manchester.
The new secure cycle hub addition has been fitted with the tried and tested FalcoLevel-Premium+ two-tier cycle rack, providing visitors to the hospital with secure cycle parking for up to 20 bikes, all within a spacious, purpose built shelter design.
In addition to the cycle racks, the new 5m x 4m cycle hub has also been clad with reinforced heat soaked safety glass, fitted with 24 helmet lockers, a secure Locinox mechanical code lock, Salford branding graphics and powder coating in an attractive NHS blue!
The two-tier cycle racks are housed in a bespoke contemporary design of the classic Falco Cycle Hub shelter, which features clean lines through the glass cladding supported by stainless steel glass clamps. The whole shelter is hot dip galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 and then polyester powder coated in RAL 5012 Light Blue. Rainwater is collected via innovative integral gutters as part of the roof system and a bespoke bund ensure that the cycle hub is weather proof!
The contemporary cycle store is manufactured from a combination of powder coated steel and laminated glass and designed to be sympathetic to the surrounding area. It was developed by Falco’s in house design team to ensure it met the client’s specification including structural calculations to meet the EN 1090 CPR requirements of UK law.
The popular FalcoHub design has been used across the UK for secure cycle and waiting hubs including; the capitals first series of community cycle hubs as part of the London Borough of Waltham Forest Mini Holland Programme, a bespoke cycle hub and 32m waiting shelter at Derby Midland Station, Northern Ireland’s first ever cycle hub for software company Allstate and recent cycle hub installations at Hull, Birmingham International, Dewsbury, Irlam and Upminster stations.
