CombiVault90

The combined underground/over-ground parking solution

 

Description

The CombiVault90 is designed for entry to the car park midway along its length and height as a vehicle is driven into the entry cabin and returned to the adjacent dedicated exit cabin, with vehicles parked in the shelf arrays of the Vault at 90o to the central axial ETV conveyor aisle.

The Vehicle is driven into the spacious Entry Cabin and onto a pallet, it is transferred forward onto the ETV conveyor which delivers the vehicle to the parking bay in the shelf array of the Vault. 

The ETV conveyor has an inbuilt rotating platform which turns the pallet through 90 degrees as it travels between the cabins and shelf array parking bays and thus speeding up the parking operations. This also dispenses with the need for a separate turntable within or outside a parking cabin as the inbuilt rotating platform in CombiVault90 delivers the car to the exit cabin for collection already pointing in the direction of exit.

The CombiVault90 was initially designed as a solution for a functional storage and display facility for a major car dealership. The vehicles are driven down a ramp to an underground holding and valeting area  where they are prepared for clean storage. 

A vehicle is driven into the entry cabin and parked on the pallet. When authorised, the pallet is transferred forward onto the ETV conveyor where it is rotated on the inbuilt platform and is delivered to the parking bay in the shelf array of the four level high Vault. The pallets are stored in the shelf array orientated at 90 degrees to the central ETV conveyor aisle with the front of the vehicle pointing towards the central axial ETV conveyor aisle.

A viewing room was built at one end of the Vault so that customers could see the retrieval/delivery of their new car to the dedicated exit cabin.

When the vehicle retrieval is authorised the ETV conveyor transfers the vehicle to the dedicated exit cabin where it is ready for collection already pointing in the direction of the exit.  

The CombiVault90 can also be constructed partly below ground and partly above ground in a manner that suits site and client requirements.

Features of CombiVault90

  • Vaults are scalable in height and length to provide a variety of parking solutions.
  • Vaults have separate entry and exit cabins that allow independent and quicker parking and retrieval turn-around.
  • System can be designed to accommodate large numbers of vehicles in a relatively small volume.
  • Consolidates parking to allow more sustainable use of valuable real estate resource.
  • Where required two ETV conveyors can be installed side by side for dual operation.
  • The ETV conveyor has an in-built rotating platform which aligns the vehicle in transport in the same central axis as the ETV conveyor and therefore permits two ETV conveyors to pass one another.
  • The in-built conveyor also rotates the vehicle so that it is returned to the exit cabin already facing in the direction of exit.  
  • Shelf arrays can be constructed from mild steel galvanised.
