Design JULIE KIERKEGAARD
The SVL4 bicycle bollard provides easy-to-use and practical parking for cargo bikes. The simple design of the bollard and the numerous configuration options help to ensure orderly bicycle parking in urban landscapes.
SVL4 is designed for parking cargo bikes. The bollard features an open design, so large chain locks can easily be secured. A crossbar ensures the chain lock does not slip down and get dirty on the ground. Ensure correct distancing when installing SVL4 bollards – both between bollards and from buildings, hedges and similar.
We are happy to help in planning a suitable configuration of cargo bike bollards to ensure a practical parking facility where cyclists can easily roll their large, wide bikes in and out.
SVL4 is ideal for urban spaces, colleges, businesses, cultural and educational institutions and other locations aiming to promote green transport options and provide well-organised bicycle parking.
The simple shape, with a steel strip forming a rectangle, has been designed by landscape architect Julie Kierkegaard. The shape is echoed in two other bollards – the SV4 fire route bollard and the SVC4 bollard for ordinary bikes.
There is a growing need for cargo bike parking in numerous settings, as more and more people are choosing cargo bikes as a green, healthy and convenient means of transport. SVL4 provides a parking solution designed for and tested with cargo bikes.
It’s also a bicycle bollard that adds an elegant and graphic touch to urban spaces and other landscapes. SVL4 can be installed individually, allowing freedom to position the bollards following a specific line or highlighting a feature in the landscape.
It is made from hot-dip galvanised steel, with optional powder coating. We offer SVL4 in RAL colours. Powder-coating takes place at our own facility in Kolding in Denmark. All our products are hot-dip galvanised before powder coating, which provides extra protection against rust.
Cargo bikes are often secured with covered chain locks, which won’t cause damage or wear to the coating on the bicycle stand.
We recommend that SVL4 cargo bike bollards be sited 2 m apart. Moreover, it is best to allow up to 1 m in front of and behind each bollard. And it is also advisable to allow clearance for manoeuvring the bike. Bollards for cargo bike parking should never be positioned close to walls, flower beds or similar, unless you want the cyclists to ‘parallel park’.
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 us for a plan or drawing to fit your requirements.
