Comprising two Parklift 462 systems, one double width, housing four vehicles and one single width accommodating two, the new system has been installed at the home of a private client.
Working closely with contractors Auto Cave by Knowles and architects The Basement Design Studio, Wohr’s experienced team designed, supplied and installed the state-of-the-art, user-friendly parking solution for six vehicles. The below-ground solution has provided a seamless, cohesive finish which allows the existing driveway to be used without obstruction.
Wohr Parking Systems’ Managing Director, Andrew Smith, said: “Parklift is an incredibly versatile solution and provides secure and discreet parking, which is perfect both for private car collectors and homeowners who want to create additional parking space.
“For clients nationwide, we have provided solutions ranging from simple two car systems, which effectively double the parking space on a standard drive, right up to bespoke multi-system projects like this one, where the requirement was to house the owner’s impressive car collection. With the top of the system covered in the same material as the driveway, when lowered, it really is virtually invisible.”
Bespoke Parklift 462 solution
To manage parking for six vehicles below the drive, a combination of a Parklift 462 single unit (with a platform width of 2700mm) and a Parklift 462 double unit (with a 5400mm platform width) was selected. An electric vehicle charging point from the company’s Flowe Easee charger range was also integrated into the system installation.
The standard Wohr Parklift 462 system features in numerous projects worldwide but for this scheme, several additional aesthetic and control elements were specified to make the system truly bespoke - in line with the quality and design ethos that runs throughout the property and gardens.
The system frames have been given a black coating, with coloured LED lighting installed above the lower platforms to create different effects on the vehicles below; each platform also benefited from the fitting of a matching black ATP boarding. The electric vehicle charge points, manufactured by Wohr’s partner Easee, were also finished in black to complement the design of the parking units.
To enhance user control and provide options for the system’s operation, Wohr also supplied remote control fobs and integrated the car park control unit into the client’s property.
With over 40 years’ experience, Wohr has worked with clients, architects and developers across the UK to design projects of all shape, size and complexity, delivering more than 8,500 parking spaces.
This installation is one example of many that the company has completed for private clients and not only fully optimises the available parking space, but also demonstrates the Parklift system’s ability to be tailored to suit the specific aesthetic and operational needs of each individual project.
