Bicycles – this is an excellent public transport because of their flexibility, environmental friendliness and minimal, in comparison with the cars, size. But often in the apartments there is simply no place to store them. That’s where you need to pay attention to the system Floaterhoist, which will keep the bike… on the ceiling.
Some time ago we were talking about an unusual parking for bikes, designed by designer Yinnon Lehrer. It is envisaged the concept of two-wheeled version of the store “horses” on the vertical planes. But Andrew Mountain went into this further. He proposes to keep bikes on the ceiling.
After all, in apartments banal there is no place to store bikes in them – every square foot counts, because it costs a fortune. But it is a square meter on the floor, the ceiling is often quite empty. So why not move the parking bike in the upper part of the room? This is what allows the system to make Floaterhoist. It represents a framework with three rope blocks. They must keep a bike. To do this, pull the rope down and impose on them vehicle pedal, and then pick them up. Moreover, the lifting can be used as arm strength and leg strength (the latter particularly likely to appeal to cyclists).
Don’t be afraid that you are lifting and lowering the bike not deal with his weight. Floaterhoist equipped with ropes to block them with a sharp decline. So, if you suddenly release the bike, it still will not fall down, it will little twitches and hardens on top.
Floaterhoist system capable of maintaining a weight of 25 kilograms. So, if you wish, you can store on it is not just a bike, but also any other oversized thing that has no place in your apartment. And because, really, why go to waste precious space of the upper part of our homes?
