Semi-automated Parking System

Soaring land prices and an appetite for more and more parking has changed the way the American real estate industry is viewing parking. Harding Steel has developed the CARMATRIX puzzle system, a semi-automated mechanical parking system that is designed with the American consumer and American real estate developer in mind. These systems can be individually configured for each building, project, and parking requirement. The primary purpose of the CARMATRIX is to provide high-density parking where users have the ability to park their OWN cars. CARMATRIX virtually eliminates the need for attended or valet parking operators

Because no two buildings are alike, Harding Steel is able to create a CARMATRIX solution for each building. These systems are constructed of premium steel with 100% galvanized steel platforms for durability and a clean appearance.

CARMATRIX operates on a platform-based grid system. The grade level platforms move laterally while the upper and lower platforms move vertically to allow the needed vehicle to be accessed at grade level. For each grouping of platforms there will be a vacant space at grade level for the upper and lower vehicles to be accessed.
