The growing population of Pakistan has created many problems - one of the challenging ones being car parking which we face almost every day. Every person wants private transport. Besides the problem of space for cars moving on the road, greater is the problem of space for a parked vehicle considering that private vehicles remain parked for most of their time. Roads are being built for cars but are we also giving the vehicles enough space to park? While residential projects still escape with designated parking, the real problem lie with commercial spaces - many a time which is overcome by taking extra open spaces to park.
Multi-level Parking systems for some time have provided relief since they come with several advantages - optimal utilization of space, lower maintenance and operational cost, lower construction cost (owing to the prefabrication), secure and environment-friendly nature (the underground implementation renders the outdoor space free for landscaping), comfortable for the drivers, cost saving for builders by saving height or depth.
Rotary Car Parking System

This system is like a mini merry go round in which 12 cars can be accommodated in a vertical height of 14 m and area of 30sqm. Operating like a merry-go-round, an empty pallet to park a car, or a loaded pallet with a parked car, is brought down to the ground level at the touch of a button; the average time taken after the button being pressed is 2-2.5 minutes.
Mini rotator car parking systems in which multiple installations are possible and a total of 10 to 18 cars can be there in the space of one car.
This system definitely helps to save our green trees and plants that are being cut down to make space for parking..
