Cycle Parking Optimisation
Using our design expertise coupled with the Falco range of cycle parking products we can optimise the number of cycles which can be achieved in any one space. Whether an open site or basement cycle park, Falco can maximise the number of cycles for the given space.

High Density Compact Cycle Parking
The requirement for two tier cycle parking systems is increasing as railway stations, shopping centres and schools continue to seek mass-compact cycle parking facilities from the traditional space consuming cycle stands. In terms of high density cycle parking, Falco can advise on compact two tier cycle parking systems such as the FalcoLevel. Falco also specialises in a wide range of compact cycle parking solutions, designed to offer maximum accommodation for bikes, in locations where space is at a premium.

The FalcoLevel cycle parking unit is Falco’s most popular compact cycle parking solution and is very innovative and user friendly. The cycle parking station can accommodate all types of bicycles which can be secured to the cycle rack using a simple chain or cable lock for additional security. Once placed into the cycle parking unit the bicycle is then well supported by the front frame and the back wheel slots into a gutter to stabilise the bike to keep it firmly in place.

Secure Cycle Parking
As well as cycle parking stands, Falco also offers a wide range of secure cycle stores. From basic cycle shelters and canopies to comprehensive cycle compounds and stores, Falco can advise and then design a secure cycle parking facility to suit your requirements. Additionally Falco has a range of FalcoSafe cycle lockers, which provide maximum cycle parking security for individual bikes.

Public and Private Cycle Parking
Falco’s range of cycle parking products is suitable for both public and private sites. Where security is and issue in public cycle parking areas, then Falco cycle stands offer multiple locking points. In a private environment, with key management, Falco’s cycle parking range maximises the ease off access for the cyclist.
