FalcoPod Bike Hangar
The FalcoPod bike hangar is a robust on street cycle parking solution to meet the needs of cyclists who don’t have access to private cycle parking facilities. The innovative design means that you no longer have to remove baskets or child seats when storing your bike!
Falco design is both evolutionary and innovative by nature and the new FalcoPod is no exception. It is a third generation of ‘bike hangar’ type product building on the pedigree of the original street locker the ‘Midi Bike Box’ with some great new features over existing products as follows:
- Size - fits in half a car parking space and houses 6 bikes, with covered weather protection.
- Family inclusive – with an ergonomically improved design, the additional space/height (55% more) means there is no need to remove child seats or baskets from the back or front of bikes.
- Bike security - the six place FalcoSound bike rack has three locking points including the ability to use a ‘D’ lock through the rear wheel and frame.
- Easy access - single door with integral lock and gas strut for assisted lifting.
Graphics and Branding Options (steel and glass only)
Make your cycle store stand out and add some creativity by adding graphics or branding to the outer skin. Have a network? Then why not be innovative and include corporate branding and logos, patterns, maps, themes or photos to your FalcoPod or FalcoPod+ cycle store as demonstrated on the images here!
- Colour options - the FalcoPod is delivered with a powder coated roof cladding to your specification, choose from any of the 192 RAL colours.
- Personalise - the FalcoPod your way by adding logos, graphics, maps - the flat surface is much better able to receive graphics and vinyls than corrugated cladding.
- Cladding – can be fitted with mesh (standard), sheet steel, pierced steel, Trespa or any other side cladding of your choice.
