Double Parking Systems

Shelf systems

The shelf systems are similar to a high-rack storage area, and they provide one further motion axis compared to a tower system. Shelf systems are suitable for narrow and elongated premises and buildings. The shelf systems can be designed as over-ground or underground system, or as a combination of both.

MasterVario R3C & R3L

The shelf system MasterVario R3 provides identically flexible features as the tower system, but provides one further benefit: Due to the additional motion axis of the storage and retrieval unit, up to ten vehicles can be arranged one behind the other.

The grids can be designed as single, twin or triple grids. For max. 50-60 parking spaces per parking level are possible. In this fully-automated parking system the maximum number of parking spaces per system/access area should not be exceeded in order to ensure quick access times.

The MasterVario R3 is the right choice for elongated premises. From standard cars to SUVs – the MasterVario R3 recognizes the height of your vehicle and finds the suitable parking space. In addition to standard car dimensions and weights, also special solutions are possible upon request. And, of course, individual project adjustment is also possible in many cases..

Key Advantages

  • Optimal access times
  • Accommodates vehicles in safety
  • Anti-theft and damage protection
  • Safe access to car park without narrow ramps or dark access routes
  • Enclosed area can be halved in comparison to conventional parking spaces
  • Slashes the space required for ramps and lane widths
  • Economising on parking levels and equipment required (lighting, ventilation, sprinklers)
  • Reduced construction time
  • Exploit the construction space saved for additional parking spaces or for other commercial purposes

Field of Application

Residential and commercial buildings, semi-detached houses, office buildings, underground parking lot, car parks, hotels, storage of classic cars, long-time parking, short-time parking, vehicle presentations.
