We believe in a better quality of life through the use of state of the art and environmentally sensible technologies that promote social innovation.
The use of mechanical, automated and robotic vehicle storage systems is commonplace in Europe and Asia; in other markets however, is just beginning to bud, opening a wealth of opportunities for companies looking to provide investors and public and private clients with a reliable, sustainable and relevant solution that will change the concept of vehicle storage in urban and metropolitan areas.
Mechanical, Automated and Robotic Vehicle Storage Systems (known as AVSS) provide a substantial reduction in toxic emissions when compared to Conventional Concrete Ramp Garages (CCRGs); they also provide a quick and efficient way to park and retrieve vehicles minimizing city center congestion, air pollution and fuel consumption.
AVSS can deliver a commissioned project within 90 days and are designed to withstand seismic activity ensuring a safe and secure facility for vehicles and their users. A fully automated vehicle storage system is operational twenty-four hours a day without the need of staff.
“Studies performed by the EPA show that vehicle storage system with the equivalent capacity of a 500 car garage will save over 6,000 gallons of gasoline per year”.
Minimal illumination requirements provide significant savings in energy consumption. The following systems may be implemented as a contingency in case of a power outage.
- Solar panel
- Battery Back-Up
- Back-Up diesel generator
AVSS employ interchangeable electromechanical motors, giving it a considerable advantage over competitive systems that run on hydraulics. Major drawbacks of hydraulic systems vis-à-vis electromechanical motors include:
- Greater heat generation
- Higher emissions of hazardous airborne oil particles
- Greater noise in operation
- High risk of component failure
AVS systems have been designed with special drip trays underneath each vehicle, capable of catching any damaging fluids that may fall from the vehicle stored directly above (such as coolant or oil based lubricants). This ensures that waste products are disposed of in an acceptable manner and protect the integrity of the vehicles stored below.
AVS Systems greatly contribute with the reduction of vehicle emissions:
83% Reduction of Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
81% Reduction of Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
77% Reduction of Carbon Monoxide (CO)
68% Reduction of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
83% Reduction in Energy Consumption (Fuel Use)
Eliminate 1,000 pounds of Hydrocarbons
Eliminate 3.5 tons of Carbon Monoxide
Eliminate 500 pounds of Nitrogen Oxides
Eliminate over 60 tons of Carbon Dioxide
