Falco VelowSpace Automated Bike Storage
Falco is a Dutch company with more than 65 years of bike parking and street furniture design experience.
Two recent innovations from the company offer a major upgrade from your average bike rack. Falco's automated bicycle parking solutions, the VelowSpace and VeloMinck, are covered and secure storage spaces that can be completely customized and work both inside and outside.
Like a covered and automated bike merry-go-round, the VelowSpace can hold up to 24 bikes using an in-house developed and patented front wheel clamp system that stabilize bikes in an upright position. The customizable VelowSpace can be used for rental bikes or personal bikes and its covered design keeps bike secure and out of the elements when not in use.
The VeloMinck allows for potentially even more bike storage capacity. Bicycles are transported and retrieved by a sophisticated clamping system that moves each bike completely out of sight. Bicycles are hung by the front wheel allowing for an effective use of space while the automatic system means no lifting is required by the bicycle owner.
The automated systems are offered in The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
