Car park upgrades to benefit both users and operators

Facing the Future

Australia’s reliance on motor vehicles is legendary and while some reports indicate a dip in car ownership due to younger generations shunning cars in favour of car sharing, the recent ABS figures indicate car ownership remains high with currently 12 million vehicles on our roads.  With so many cars, the question turns to increasingly stretched parking facilities and the role of car parks in our society.

Parking continues to be an increasingly contentious issue

 

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.

Should Australia Raise its Carpark Safety Standards

Editorial for Industry Magazine Sourceable

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.

How safe is your Carpark?

Undertaking a carpark safety and compliance audit

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.
