Wherever a car needs to be moved, whatever its type and whatever its size or weight, CARMEC can provide the best solution.
Our elevating platforms can be installed inside buildings or outdoors, to reach below-grade areas, upper floors or terraces. Often, maximum safety can be achieved by transforming the moving section of the lift into an enclosure equipped with moveable panels on one or two sides for access, and fixed protective walls on the remaining sides. Our enclosed-platform models are offered as the MC Series. The enclosure can feature the materials and type of structure that are most appropriate for the architectural setting.
- Ideal where an access ramp cannot be constructed: for a basement garage, for example, the system occupies only 15 square meters, as opposed to the 60 to 70 square meters typically needed for a ramp. In addition, the grade-level area remains clear and can be put to other uses.
- Particularly suitable for historic city centers and residential units with few parking spaces, as these system are readily integrated in rebuilding and remodeling projects.
- Dimensions can be adapted to available space, and to non-rectangular areas.
- Can be installed in enclosed areas or outdoors (MP models).
Like floor to floor car lifts, elevating platforms are designed to move a car from grade level to a parking area located underground or on an upper floor, and are thus an ideal alternative to an access ramp in cases where a ramp cannot be constructed because of space limitations or architectural and zoning restrictions.
CARMEC’s model MP elevating platforms can be installed inside buildings or outdoors, and are equipped with popup safety barriers which raise when the platform is lowered and then retract so that they are completely concealed when the system is at rest.
