In a recent survey of around 2million adults in the UK, over 4% cycled every day or nearly every day. There is no doubt that cycling is fast becoming a popular method of transport, and with that our town centres, workplaces and leisure facilities need to provide increased provisions for cyclist parking, giving them peace of mind and convenience when leaving their bike unattended.
Introducing the new Letterform range of cycle stands, designed by Furnitubes’ in-house designers the range brings something very different to cycle parking provision – letters can be arranged to spell out the cycle parking function, the name of the site, company, school or even a message. An all- Letterform arrangement makes a striking feature, particularly at prominent positions on a site, such as along a front boundary or facade, serving not just the practical role of providing cycle parking, but also reinforcing the identity of the establishment. A complementary simple square form ‘blank’, which can be used as spacing or as additional parking for use when more cycling parking is required is also available.
All Letterform cycle stands have the option for bolt down or root fixed installation. As standard, each letter is manufactured in heavy duty steel bar with a polyamide coating to provide a robust, secure and attractive product for many years.
