Old Parking Methods are Outdated
Until recently there have been very few mainstream parking solutions in North America. An abundance of available space to be used for parking has stunted the need for development of more efficient parking solutions. The availability of space and reasonable price has lowered the need for introduction and acceptance of innovative parking solutions. This had led to continued use of outdated parking concepts (like parking garages and parking lots) that can solve parking needs at a minimal level but also have the following drawbacks:
Grossly inefficient use of available parking space (especially vertical space)
Space is wasted for stairways and walkways
Extra staff and cost is incurred for security, administration and maintenance
Usually requires extensive excavation and extending the parking area is virtually impossible
The cost per parking spot ratio is very high
Spatial issues are quickly developing in large cities all over North America which are driving up prices for land. Land used for parking especially at a premium now and developers are now looking to significantly lower the cost per parking spot ratio, much the way it has been in Europe and Asia for many years.
The Need for Parking Engineers
Luckily there have been parking engineers hard at work perfecting the art of parking well before these new parking systems have become a necessity worldwide. In some instances parking engineers have been working since the invention of the first parking system 45 years ago, on making innovative and increasingly efficient parking systems.
Extensive research and development has led to the perfecting of the systems and the expansion of the product lines to be able to suit every parking need. This relentless pursuit of perfection and innovation has helped to give these parking systems a reputation as a world class parking solution. These hydraulic parking solutions have collectively changed the way the world thinks about parking. No longer is the one vehicle per parking space model an acceptable solution to parking needs.
The Products of Innovation
Most of today's parking solutions involve a lift system that is able to stack vehicles on top of each other. This is a very efficient theory to base the production of parking systems around as it makes extensive use of vertical space while minimizing the expensive horizontal space required.
Some of the more popular parking solutions are:
Fully Automatic Parker
These systems are part of a comprehensive parking solution that can solve literally any parking scenario. They are all built on sound scientific principles that allow them to work both efficiently and optimally. They are robust systems that generally only require maintenance once or twice a year at most. The compact designs of the systems means that the need for security personnel is minimized and these systems are inherently safer. Many of these systems require little to no excavation and can be installed and used in little time.
With talented parking system engineers continually looking to improve parking for the world, the future of parking looks brighter than ever.
