As space diminishes due to dense development in urban environments, so too do the number of user-friendly car park facilities, with much of today’s parking architecture creating highly restrictive conditions for manoeuvring vehicles.
A new line marking machine and a number of line marking projects for both Carparks and Industrial facilities has offered our clients more when it comes to the scope of a new project.

CCS recently completed a custom curved barrier system for a residential driveway on the Northern Beaches, Sydney. Working with the builders YUNCKEN, the Barrier System and the installation truly delivered an outstanding result. As well as being compliant with Australian Standards, this project showcases what can be achieved by designing a system that is also aesthetically pleasing to the project as well.
This month Michael Reid our General Manager here at CCS has begun sharing editorial content for Industry Magazine Sourceable. This will be a regular spot for us at CCS and this months article tackles the issue of Raising the Carpark Safety Standards here in Australia.
Under the current standard AS/NZS1170.1, the barrier in a carpark must withstand a force of 30-kilonewton. So this means a 1,500 kilogram vehicle (a medium sized sedan), travelling at eight kilometres per hour. However when we consider the weight of larger SUVs and utility vehicles now in Australia and the actual speeds cars are doing in carparks today, the existing load bearing specifications are insufficient to withstand an impact in today’s carparks.
An investment in carpark safety and compliance for Residential carparking can result in an aesthetically pleasing upgrade to old or tired buildings.

The majority of hotel developments will include car parks that
are designed to facilitate efficient parking for guests, yet car parks can be
hazardous environments due to their high level of vehicle and pedestrian
activity. They must therefore be managed
with extreme care.
