Selfridges Department Stores Appoint Falco for Employee Cycle Parking
Selfridges Department Stores recently appointed Falco as the provider of secure high density cycle racks for employee use at two of its flagship stores.
The second largest shop in the UK, Selfridges Oxford Street and its iconic landmark Bull Ring store in Birmingham, were chosen to receive new compact cycle parking facilities for employees to travel to and from work.
Falco manufactured, supplied and installed 72 spaces of the FalcoLevel-Eco Two-Tier cycle rack with 20 spaces of FalcoVert-Pro semi-vertical cycle rack for Level 1 of the car park at Oxford Street and 11 spaces of the innovative VelowUp® vertical cycle rack at its midlands branch, as part of measures to support the increase in cycling at its Bullring Shopping Centre in Birmingham.
All of the innovative cycle parking products were an ideal cycle parking solution for the tight constraints of the space envelopes available, providing a maximum number of cycle parking spaces compared to other traditional forms of cycle parking such as Sheffield Stands and A-11 racks.
The recent installation shown here at Selfridges is just one of many retail environments Falco has supplied and installed cycle parking equipment for. Other recent examples include an array of shelters and cycle racks for B&Ms southern distribution centre in Wixams, new cycle parking facilities as part of the new redeveloped Potteries Shopping Centre in Stoke-on-Trent, 150 two-tier cycle rack spaces for Marks & Spencer at Paddington Basin in London as well as cycle parking for Ikea in Cardiff!
The FalcoLevel-Eco is a high density and budget friendly two-tier cycle parking system which accommodates twice the number of bicycles compared to any other traditional cycle rack or stand. The FalcoLevel two-tier series is the UK’s best-selling high density cycle rack and is used at the UK’s first ever cycle hub at Leeds City Station as well as the UK’s two largest cycle hubs at Cambridge and Chelmsford Stations.
The VelowUp® cycle rack is purposely designed to maximise the amount of cycle parking spaces in areas where space is at a premium. The system is designed to save up to 40% more space compared to any other conventional cycle rack or stand. The VelowUp® is easy to install, simple to operate and securely accommodates all types of bicycles. The innovative cycle parking system has been used at recent schemes including the University of Edinburgh, Valentines Park in London Borough of Redbridge and Rotterdam Town Hall.
