Plants, elegant wooden slats or a tempting billboard of your favourite chocolate brand. This could very well be the new view enjoyable by residents, users and passers-by alike.
Wöhr’s automatic Slimparker 557 parking tower can do more than stack cars on top of each other! The slim construction contours allows incorporation into a soundproof wall.
This safeguards the residents of housing areas against adjacent road and rail traffic noise pollution. In case of renovation projects the parking tower provides innovative parking space solutions. Narrow gaps between buildings can be used for additional car parking spaces.
What is the difference between the new Slimparker 557 parking tower and the existing Wöhr product range?
This new parking system offers up to 23 above-ground parking spaces on narrow and long ground plans. A central vertical lift located in the transfer area conveys the car to one of the 6 possible parking levels per system. Each parking level can store up to 4 cars.
The slim parking tower’s clear installation width amounts to a minimum of 280 cm. For additional car entry and exit comfort, the installation width can be extended up to 310 cm in 10 cm steps. It is also possible for one system to accommodate different car heights, available from 150 cm up to 200 cm, in 10 cm steps. Even in city centre districts where floor area is scarce and expensive, the Slimparker 557 tower version only requires approximately 77 m² to safely accommodate 23 parked cars. This means that only an area of approx. 3.50 m² per car is required.
A further special feature offered by the Wöhr Slimparker 557 lies in the interesting façade configuration potentials. Architects can design the façades individually and to customer requests, adapting them to the surrounding building fronts and almost invisibly integrated into the cityscape. The façades can bear a maximum weight of 50 kg per square metre.
The Slimparker 557 system novelties were first presented by Wöhr at the BAU 2011 as shaft version. With a completely lowered car transfer area and perfectly suited for retroactive integration into narrow alleyways, roads and courtyard entrances.
At the BAU 2013 it was still shown as an inspiration for architects under the title “The Future of suburbs”. Now at the BAU 2015, Wöhr is presenting the slim parking tower in its original dimensions.
