Several years ago, Sika began producing profiles for the construction of multiparking systems, which are now widely used in Germany and many other countries.
The demand for parking systems is rising continuously. The increasingly scarce available space and the increasing number of vehicles have led to the search for new solutions to condense and make parking space more efficient. Parking cars on several levels is already a well-known possibility. The future lies in automated parking systems that compress vehicles horizontally and vertically in order to maximize the number of parking spaces and at the same time minimize space consumption. These parking systems are integrated into buildings and public areas and are therefore much cheaper than separate car parks and garages. It protects customers and vehicles from the weather and offers users maximum safety.
Sika offers manufacturers of parking systems high-quality profiles for the realization of parking systems. Profiles made of galvanized steel, stainless steel or zinc-magnesium steel cover all application areas and requirements of modern parking systems.
The dimensions and shape of the profiles are designed to provide a solid, strong, flexible and easy-to-use system. In particular, the profiles manufactured by Sika are characterised by an excellent fit and very simple, time-saving assembly.
Sika profiles are also used in the latest automatic parking system (APS) solutions, which are also commonly known under a variety of other names, including: automatic parking garage (APF), automatic vehicle storage system (AVSRS), parking system, mechanical parking, double parking, stacker parking and robot parking garage.
STEEL PROFILES for PARKING SYSTEMS: New details, new performances, best result.
Sometimes some small adjustment on the shape are enough in order to get better results.
Better results during the installation phases, which are easier and faster, the final performances are also better as the connection between the elements is stronger.
Sika has made profiles for Parking Systems since 1998,and starting from that year until now Sika has always researched new solution in order to let the car-parking builders to be more efficient and more competitive against their competitors.
On the, not more so far, Far East, where the number of cars is growing year after year, and rich people need secure and comfortable parking system for their expensive cars, our profiles for parking systems are now well appreciated as they are also nice at the sight.
Skyline equipped with parking place able to fit thousands of cars are nowadays needed, and the traditional building system is not anymore suitable for satisfying these needs.
However, not only big parks, in one of the largest area in Australia, in a really luxury house, the owner asked us for a parking system able to hide his Ferrari and the luxury Mercedes. It has been a new system using the already developed knowhow.
Airport are also now focalized in offering travellers an easy solution for leaving their cars and they have to offer business travellers a quick solution for leaving their car and reaching the terminal. These parking places has to be not too big and so they have be engineered in the direction of the best optimization of the parking areas, cars have to be stocked but not damaged.
The strongest enemies of the metal parking systems are the corrosion agents, which are everywhere, more or less aggressive. Sika thanks to its long experience is now able to offer different solutions looking to different location of the parking places including therefore profiles in galvanized steel or steel protected by a zinc-aluminium alloy or zinc-magnesium alloy, or the excellent stainless steel.
