The SILHUET bicycle bollard is a stylish and elegant option for parking bikes. It also offers extra benefits in the form of double-sided parking and parking for cargo bikes.
SILHUET lends itself to use as a front-wheel stand, with the wheel inserted in the gap between the two sides. It can naturally also be used as a side stand, allowing the bike frame to be locked securely to the stand.
SILHUET can also be used as parking for cargo bikes, if the individual bollards are spaced further apart (1.30 m).
This slim bicycle stand features elegant details. These are especially evident when SILHUET is installed in rows or curves, where repetition creates an enhanced overall impression. You can, for example, use SILHUET to demarcate an outdoor area.
SILHUET is made from 10 mm flat iron, and is therefore robust but with a lightweight appearance.
SILHUET can handily be used for double-sided front-wheel parking. It requires less depth than a traditional double stand, since the front wheels can overlap. When installed as double-sided parking, there must be a gap of at least 30 cm between each bollard. The total required depth is roughly 3.75 m, including space to manoeuvre the bike around the stand.
A wider gap is required if using SILHUET as a side stand – ideally 60 cm. This allows cyclists to easily lock their bike frame securely to the stand. The small cross-bars at the top of the stand prevent chain locks from sliding down and getting covered in gravel and wet leaves on the ground.
All our bicycle parking products are made from hot-dip galvanised steel. We are happy to add a powder coating in any RAL colour – this is always applied on top of the galvanised surface, so that the coating serves as an extra layer of protection against rust. SILHUET is ideally suited to powder coating in black or a bright colour.
Here at HITSA we have extensive experience of planning and installing bicycle parking. We are happy to provide advice on how to make the most of the space available for your bicycle parking facility – whilst also ensuring an attractive appearance. Get in touch with our consultants for a plan or drawing to fit your requirements.
We manufacture our products in-house at our own facilities in Kolding (Denmark) and Latvia. This means that we can adapt and customise products as required to suit customer needs.
