Staffordshire Chooses Falco!
Staffordshire County Council has chosen Falco to provide cycle shelters at it’s brand new state of the art Council offices at Tipping Street in Stafford. Following a lengthy design period, the FalcoGamma shelter was chosen for it’s excellent design characteristics and good value for money in terms of covered cycle parking.
Falco designed the 132 space cycle park free of charge on behalf of the client and our own teams of highly qualified installation engineers installed the series of canopies to the agreed specifications. The shelters were powder-coated in stylish RAL colour - 9017 Traffic Black, creating a real design statement!
A design characteristic for this model is the central column that evolves into two upward facing branches. The name Gamma was chosen because, when viewed from the side, the shape of the structure looks like the Greek letter gamma and underlines the design statement that we wanted to make with this new cycle shelter. The new FalcoGamma is available in both double sided and single sided versions.
The cycle shelter, with bowed styling, is clad with 4mm thick, robust clear polycarbonate roof sheets. The height of the FalcoGamma is 2.10m, the depth for the single sided shelter is 1.91m and the depth for a double sided shelter is 3.70m, the free height under the gutter is 1.53m and length is 4.00m centre to centre between the stanchions.
The shelter can be mounted as a below ground fix or bolted down using base plates which are bolted on to a concrete pad or prefab concrete blocks. The concrete block is 1400 x 250 x 315mm under the stanchion, smaller stanchions can be provided with prefab Falco concrete blocks.
