BIKE SUN

#
316
A solid, yet slim bollard and bicycle stand for 1-2 bikes combined with integrated solar power.

Free light – no cables – no installation issues.

Ambient and guidance lighting to be used along public walk / running / bicycle-routes and roads or plazas to prevent parking or limit traffic. As guide / pathfinder. Bike Sun also have a sensor control: when you step up to the Bike Sun, the light-intensity increases to welcome you.
Design
Julie Kierkegaard

The landscape architect Julie Kierkegaard's basic idea in creating this new bike-bollard was to combine excellent design, strong mechanical construction and solar powered light - and the solar light function has been integrated in the product from the first sketches.

Even though it is slim and elegant, Bike looks strong - and is strong.

Technical data
TECHNICAL DATA

Material and surface
8mm steel plates, hot galvanized and powder coated in antracite, matt texture (gloss 10) or corten steel. Light unit: plate in stainless steel and top covers for solar cells in 3mm tempered glass.

Dimensions
H900 x B130 x D80mm.

Bike function
The bike can be placed and locked either leaning against the product or in the slit.

Light function
Guide- and atmospheric light.
During daylight the solar energy gets stored on a battery through solar cells. Bike Sun has PIR-sensors that capture movement in the surroundings, to swith on light or fade up/down. At dusk the light will turn on (via a preset clock) and remain active evening and night, according to the charged energy and programming at the specific location. Bike Sun cleverly optimizes its output: the sensors will turn up the light when a pedestrian or bicyclist steps closer to the Bike, and when not activated, will be on a lower light level. The glare free light comes from the the top and emits light downwards in two V-shapes on the ground and the inner part of the bollard legs.

Light unit
Solar cell: 3 panels, monocrystalline, 1Wp. Battery: Li-IOn, 3.7V/4.500mAh. LED: Osram 1W white (4.000K) module. Elektronic: Intelligent processor controlled for optimum energy storage and light optimization incl. RTC-clock. 2 integrated PIR-sensors ensures max. light during the winter period.  

Fixation
Surface mounted to the ground via 2 x ø11mm countersunk holes in the bottom or buried by using a ground anchor (to be ordred separately).

Mechanical strength
IP-rating: IP 65 / IK-rating: IK 8 / Corrosion class: C4

Maintenance
Maintenance-free, except for change of battery. Keep top and sides with solarcells free of dirt.

Lifetime
25+ year, but battery to be changed in approx. 5 years.

Variant
Version without light: Bike #315.
Possible to get other RAL colours: (e.g. black RAL 9005, gloss 30), other battery type, other light profiles. Available in tilting version, for escape routes.
