Perfo treads for stairs Bike apple

The Bike Apple, a bike shelter in the form of an apple, is the eye-catcher at the railway station in Alphen aan den Rijn. This trophy will be presented during the Day of Hot-dip galvanising. The Bike Apple has different floors which are reached via straight and spiral steel staircases for which Staco has supplied the hot-dip galvanised perforated planks type AP and Staco pressed gratings type RR.

Although the basic form of the Bike Apple looks simple, the design is a complex one. The walkway on which the bicycles are parked winds around a cone-shaped core of steel columns like a spiral-shaped peel. The outer cladding consists of chain-link meshing with butterfly patterns. The various floors are accessible via steel staircases.

Staco has supplied hot-dip galvanised steel gratings in a range of forms and sizes. Staco supplied perfo treads for the straight and spiral stairs. Staco pressed gratings are used to enclose areas, ensuring safety. The bike racks are hot-dip galvanised and the handles of the bike racks are powder coated by Rotocoat. It can house 970 bicycles.
