Finding parking space in our over-crowded urban centres is only going to get more challenging with time.

Indian cities and towns are made up of narrow lanes, with development that extends right on the road.People who built houses with parking space for one car, now own many more. When guests come calling, they obviously have to parkon the road.

What's more, residential buildings are being used for commercial purposes so they attract more visitors and workers who only add to the congestion of the area.

For upcoming residential projects, developers and property owners can definitely consider stack parking system is a type of automated parking system that "stacks" more than a single vehicle in a singular parking space. The cars are placed on levels above and below each other, which gives the developer the benefit of providing parking spaces for multiple vehicles, while increasing space efficiency of the area.

Stack parking are ideal for doubling or tripling parking capacity in commercial or residential properties.

Systems work with a simple mechanical hydraulic system and every model in the range can be designed differently to accommodate the user’s needs. If the parking slots are often used for bigger cars such as SUVs, the height of the stack parkers can be adjusted accordingly to fit almost any typically designed automobiles.

These stack parking systems are segregated further into 2 types – Dependent and Independent.

Dependent parking systems are those where the lower platform has to be evacuated first, in order to let the upper platform come down.Independent parking systems are those that do not depend on either platform in order to access the vehicles and remove them.

The platforms can stretch till a width of 2700mm, and have an impressive load carrying capacity ranging between 2000-2600 kgs. As this is a dependable parking system, it can be installed in outdoor spaces as well where the lower platform is mostly used for visitors, and the upper platform for more permanent users.
