Different variants of car elevators

Firstly, indoor facilities, outdoor facilities and canopy facilities are distinguished:

  • An indoor facility is defined as elevators within a building.
  • Outside facilities are located at a building, while the shaft is secured by a hydraulically driven lift gate.
  • In the canopy system there is a second level or the canopy, which can be used as a system closure/shaft or also as a carport replacement when extended. Such plants are suitable for both outdoor and indoor use.

In addition, DE-PARK also provides you with variants with or without a roof. Parking systems for cars with a roof are covered with different materials according to your wishes and can thus also be adapted to the surroundings in terms of color.

Car turntable

Functionality, advantages and areas of application

There is no turning space in front of most garages, as the driveways are kept narrow for reasons of space. Often the car has to be parked out or in backwards. Here, a car turntable offers absolute comfort, because the vehicles simply turn around their own axis thanks to this space-saving parking and unparking aid. Ultimately, the driver can comfortably drive out of the garage forwards.

Features of a car turntable

Many parking spaces and house exits often cause worry lines: A gate that couldn’t be narrower or a hedge that restricts visibility are just some of the most common causes of stress behind the wheel – even in front of your own house. This is where a car turntable can save a lot of stress and time in everyday life. No longer does a driver have to reverse out of the garage into traffic on a busy road. In the future, even those who are tired of manoeuvring back and forth in the underground garage will be able to turn their own vehicle 180 degrees at the touch of a button.

The special feature of this parking aid is that it can also be retrofitted in existing car parks, garages and in front of one’s own house. The load as well as the diameter of the car turntable can be extended on request.

Functionality of a car turntable

This innovative parking aid makes it possible to turn the vehicle around its own axis without a turning circle or turning ramp. But how does the system work? The plate consists of several segments, is centrally mounted and rests on maintenance-free rollers with ball bearings according to the static requirements. A 360-degree rotation should not take longer than one minute.

The driver drives comfortably onto the panel and only has to press a button before exiting to bring the car into a more favourable position or so that the bonnet faces forwards and the exit is more comfortable. This eliminates the inconvenience of backing out or turning the car around in very narrow garage entrances.

What are the advantages of a turntable?

The main advantage is obvious, as the driver no longer has to think about how to exit onto the road. This is particularly stressful when there are no turning facilities on site. In the standard version, vehicles with a length of up to 5 m can be turned, and the total weight can reach up to 4000 kg. This means that even SUVs can be brought into the perfect extension or retraction position from a standing position.

Depending on the installation situation, the panel can be set up as an underfloor or above-floor variant. Other dimensions and specifications can be realised as special production. For users, this means an additional level of safety, as shunting back and forth is completely eliminated. In conjunction with this, time is also saved that would otherwise have to be invested in stressful and dangerous turning attempts. Those who have previously had to reverse into moving traffic on a daily basis will particularly appreciate this parking aid. It means never again having to wait desperately for the right moment to pull out.

Areas of application of a car turntable

  • For limited and narrow access
  • In residential and commercial buildings, office buildings or garages for single or multi-family houses
  • Can be used in the front garden or courtyard as an open-air parking system without garage
  • As a space-saving parking and unparking aid in multi-storey or underground car parks, e.g. car rental, car dealerships and hotels.

Functionality and advantages at a glance

Especially in large cities and inner cities, it is common to have a lack of necessary parking spaces – and at this point at the latest, the stress sets in. It is not uncommon to be late for work because of the stressful search for a parking space, which, if repeated, causes additional stress with superiors once again. Fortunately, there are now appropriate solutions to such problems on the market. More and more residential and office buildings are therefore relying on innovative parking systems, such as the Combilift. In this way, parking efficiency is significantly improved.

Moving and stacking creates more space in height on the upper parking level. This creates more space for cars with roof racks, SUVs as well as vans. With a low installation height, the semi-automatic car parking system even allows parking on two levels above each other. At the same time, the vehicles are safely stored behind the gates.

Example Combilift: Digital parking system on two levels with semi-automatic control, DE-37 series [with pit].

How a Combilift works

Depending on the design, semi-automatic and mechanical parking systems enable the doubling or tripling of parking spaces for vehicles. For example, the Autolift stacks the vehicles on top of each other and parking can be both dependent and independent. With the Combilift, independent parking is guaranteed even without a pit, as the cars are moved to empty spaces here. Due to an empty space on the entry level and the technology of the shifting puzzle, all parking spaces are approached directly via the entry level.

In order to lower a car lying on the upper parking level, the parking spaces on the lower level are shifted laterally so that an empty space is created under the selected parking space. In this way, the car lift combines parking convenience with efficiency. The driver simply has to request an assigned or empty parking platform and park the vehicle. The parking system takes care of the rest. The system flexibly moves the vehicles horizontally and vertically and thus makes optimal use of the enclosed parking space. During the parking process, innovative operating options and electric gates ensure a high level of safety.

What are the advantages of a Combilift?

Retractable garages, car lifts, Autolift or Combilift – there are several terms that refer to the same parking system. This is a parking system that moves cars horizontally or vertically on levels to make the best use of space. The main advantage is of course the space gained, especially when the car lift is used as a retractable garage.

The free space can, for example, be designed as a lawn or as another parking space. However, concrete, asphalt, tiles, paving stones or simply metal is also suitable as a possible surface. This ensures the aesthetic integration of the car lift into the structural local conditions. In addition, the vehicle is protected from theft and weather conditions.

What does a Combilift cost?

This question cannot be answered in a general way, as the costs can vary depending on the design, load capacity and size. For example, a platform can be up to 270 cm wide and withstand a load of between 2000 and 2600 kg. Depending on the requirements, the retractable garage is suitable for a vehicle height of 150 to 205 cm. With low installation heights of only 220 cm, parking of SUVs is possible on the upper parking spaces. There is a variety of arrangement possibilities depending on vehicle loads, heights and widths. All these factors influence the final price of a car lift.

What is a car lift?

Anyone who has not yet dealt with a car lift is probably not really familiar with it. Such a lift is an analogue, digital or automated conveyor technology that takes over the parking of the car.

Within the types, you have the option of deciding whether you want to enable only horizontal or also vertical parking.

Which car lift variants are available?

At DE-PARK you can choose from a wide range of car lift variants. It is important to differentiate depending on the budget and the dimensions, because not all solutions are suitable for every need.

If the budget is limited or you have buildings with little space, the analogue car lifts are mainly suitable. These require only a few materials, but at the same time enable intelligent control.

Otherwise, you can also opt for digital solutions. This type of car lift is characterised by semi-automatic control and is a symbiosis of intuitive control unit and modern techniques.

If you opt for digital car lifts, you get convenient solutions with maximum benefits. In addition, guests and tenants benefit from a much more pleasant parking experience.

Last but not least, you can also opt for a robotic car lift with us. This is the most modern way of parking, where users benefit from a fully automated process.

This type of car lift features the highest level of convenience, as users only need to drop off the car in the designated drop-off area. The lift takes care of the rest, allowing users to save time and take care of other things.

Example: Automated multi-level parking system, DE-700 series, model 717 with 17 parking spaces.

What are common car lift dimensions?

The car lift dimensions essentially depend on the location of the house or the size. In addition, you need to weigh up whether you want a pit or not.

Other essential factors to determine the dimensions are:

  • Headroom
  • Through-loader
  • Shaft width
  • Shaft depth
  • Payload

As you have rightly realised, the question of dimensions cannot be determined in a general way – the size of the house, the parking area or the conveying height vary and are different from building to building.

For this reason, we recommend that you contact us, where we will be happy to advise you and act as an innovative contact partner.

This is the budget you need

The costs cannot be answered in a general way, after all, they depend on your building and the chosen variant. In general, a car lift offers the advantage that the modern DE-PARK systems can be easily integrated into the buildings.

If you have commercial real estate, costs can be reduced while turnover increases and, in addition, customers are less stressed – after all, there is no need to search to find a parking space or park the car.

You are welcome to contact us to describe your situation and analyse your needs. We will then advise you comprehensively, show you the perfect solution for your needs and prepare an offer with the exact costs.
