Growing Populations Cause Parking Issues
Many of the larger cities in the world are experiencing a lack of available space due to population increases. In many cities it is becoming a crisis because of the problems this lack of space has caused citizens. This reduction of available space can lead to a lack of available housing and also significant parking problems.
As developers scramble to find land to build more housing, they must also find adequate amounts of land to accommodate the resultant parking requirements. When available space is limited it always drives the price up to higher levels as per supply and demand.
Most cities have specific parking regulations that state a certain number of parking spaces must also be provided depending on the type of building that is constructed and its intended use. This means significant additional costs when a large volume of parking space is required, if the amount of land required is even available.
When the space available for parking is limited and very expensive, it calls for a different parking model to successfully implement a parking solution. Usually the best solution to this problem is implementing a parking solution that puts emphasis on maximizing the use of vertical space like a stack parking system.
Maximizing Vertical Space
Choosing a parking solution that can stack vehicles upwards and use vertical space efficiently is by far the best way to make use of the limited area available for parking. These stack parking solutions have been developed for more than 45 years in some instances and offer the best parking efficiency available in any parking system today. Stack parking systems allow many vehicles to be parked in limited horizontal space which can greatly reduce the upfront costs that would normally be incurred for securing land.
Aside from the amazing parking efficiency that these systems offer, there are many other benefits that can be realized from choosing to implement this type of solution:
Minimal to no excavation required
Minimal material costs (i.e. asphalt, concrete, etc.)
Usually offer a level of customization
Many different types of systems to choose from
These systems are very versatile and can be easily implemented regardless of whether the installation is indoors or outdoors. They are especially valuable when they are used indoors since available space is very strictly defined.
A System for Every Scenario
The extensive lineup of stack parking systems makes it possible to find a system that is a good fit for any parking scenario. The ability to customize many of these systems makes it much easier to find the perfect parking system depending on space and parking requirements.
The most common types of stack parking systems are:
Fully Automatic Parkers
These systems each offer unique advantages and can all handle different volumes of vehicles. The variety of the systems provides multiple choices for every parking scenario. Stack parking systems truly add a new level of efficiency and ease to the parking industry and provide excellent parking options when space is limited.
