The multi-level parking stacker is an automated parking system that utilizes the concept of vertical parking. This maximizes the parking capacity by allowing the stacking of vehicles on two floors on the same horizontal parking lot.

THE PROBLEM

The Problem

Car-driven adjoining territories, busy business districts, and shopping centers without empty parking spaces - these are the "delights" of life in a big city.

The number of cars is growing every year, and the number of parking lots is decreasing. And this has become a big problem especially in cities like New York

THE SOLUTION

One of the most efficient solutions is the organization of multi-level parking lots, where, with a minimum occupied area, you can place more cars than in the regular parking lot

The Solution

In collaboration with New York parking operator, we developed an automatic parking system that solves the issue of parking space shortage.

The parking system consists of two levels with 7 individual platforms on top level and 6 on the ground level.

This way 13 cars can be parked instead of just 7. That is 85% increase in parking capacity!

Automated-Multi-level-Parking_Stacker

Fully automated multi-level parking stacker is designed for both indoor and outdoor use

OUTDOOR

Robust & weather-proof solution to last for years with minimal maintenance. Designed to fit most commercial parking lots & minimize car retrieval time

Outdoor Parking Solution

INDOOR

Space saving design allowing to fit even in most tight parking lots with minimal height. Ideal for
residential apartment complexes and office buildings

Indoor Parking Solution

ADVANTAGES

space savingSPACE SAVING

Increase parking capacity by 90% and install even in tight spaces. Sedans and SUVs can be parked

Cost SavingCOST SAVING

Multi level parking reduces land cost.
Does not need valet personnel on site

Time SavingTIME SAVING

No need to do circles in tight spaces.
Just pull the car to the platform in less than 30 seconds!

SafetySAFETY

Cars are safely parked on the both levels.
Nobody is driving next to your vehicle

Multiple stackers

Multiple stackers can be installed on a parking lot to maximize space utilization. 

Any car can be accessed individually thanks to automated system

Intended to be operated by drivers without dedicated valet service

HOW IT WORKS

control panel

Control panel with touchpad screen allows drivers to park and retrieve their vehicles 

Industrial PC is a robust solution to last for years

No special knowledge or valet personnel required

Each car on any level can be retrieved at any time by pressing a single button on control panel. Automation does the rest.

1. When driver need to retrieve a car from upper level, system moves the lower level platforms so that there is free space under the required platform

2. Next,  top-level platform is lowered

3. Driver enters the car and drives away

ROBUST DESIGN

rebust-design

Fast and powerful motors are used to move platforms. Secondary mechanical system always protects in case of power outage

The fixed frame serves as the body containing platforms, hydraulic cylinders, geared motors and control panel.

parking-rebust-design

Each upper platform is mounted on top of two hydraulic cylinders located in the frame structure. Lower platforms have one geared motor to facilitate its horizontal movement on the floor guides.
