Underground Garage Lift
Vasari’s Underground Garage Lift Increases Parking Capacity for Homeowners.
The Vasari Solution
When traditional parking in a home garage is not available due to space restrictions, Vasari offers an underground solution. Vasari’s underground garage lift is designed for residential homes to increase parking capacity. This underground garage lift allows for one vehicle to be transferred safely underground for parking, while a second vehicle can be parked on top. A homeowner may be faced with parking constraints for various reasons – land restrictions of a new home build to protecting a collector automobile. Whatever the reason, Vasari builds underground garage lifts to solve for these very reason. Working with you and your home builder, we can help determine the requirements for installing an underground garage lift in your new home.
Residential Car Lift
Vasari’s residential car lift guarantees a parking space for every member of the family.
A Colorado family building a new home wanted extra garage parking for their multi-driver household. However, their new home design plans could not accommodate a larger garage. They did not want to leave automobiles outside in inclement weather, so they looked for an alternative solution.
The Vasari Solution
Vasari’s residential car lift allows the homeowner to expand their parking options by going underground. The car lift is installed through an excavated pit. The car lift will safely transport a vehicle underground keeping it safe and protected. Vasari’s residential car lift is a great solution for existing house plans or new builds.
Hassle-Free Parking Lift
A perfect parking solution for accessing two vehicles without the hassle of shuffling cars around.
When a homeowner was finalizing his floor plans for the construction of his new home, his architect recommended building a one-car garage which is more suitable for the lot size, and also more fitting for the neighborhood characteristics. The homeowner owning two vehicles, asked his architect to explore alternatives to create more covered parking. The idea of adding an underground garage lift began to take shape with the plans to redesign the garage to include a cathedral style ceiling, so the homeowner will be able to lift two vehicles at the same time.
After full evaluation of the homeowner’s challenges and goals, our engineers designed a high capacity garage lift capable of raising his “everyday” car within the footprint of the garage while accessing his sports car from the basement garage.
Underground Car Lift Doubles Space
Vasari Delivers Twice the Parking Space By Concealing One Car Underground.
New homeowner’s were building a new home on a narrow lot that had room for only a standard 2-car garage. They did not want to leave their other vehicle out in the open uncovered or unprotected. They considered installing a pre-packaged stacked car lift in the garage, however, they height requirements would require a redesign of their garage plans.
Vasari’s engineering team designed an underground car lift to fit within the footprint of their garage. The homeowner would not have to sacrifice their design plans. The Vasari lift will be pit installed and transport one vehicle underground where it will be protected. Another car can be parked on top of the lift platform at the garage level.
Single-Car Garage Lift for Dream Home
CUSTOM-DESIGNING FOR A CUSTOMER’S DREAM HOME.
Dream home in historic district uses a Vasari single-car garage lift to transfer vehicles to underground storage area.
New homeowner’s were building their dream home in an historic area where the lot lines were small. They were faced with making a decision of building more living space, or having a multi-car garage. In consulting with their architect, they worked out plans for a single car garage, but one that would include the installation of a car lift to transport their multiple cars to a basement garage for storage.
To complete their dream home, we custom designed a single-car garage lift for the homeowner’s to park multiple cars underground. To keep the homeowner’s family safe when operating the lift, we added a few extra safety features:
- Emergency Stop Button – immediately stops the lift when pressed.
- Digital Security Pad – insures operation of the lift is limited to authorize users only.
- Security Key Switch – the lift will not operate unless key is in place to a turned “On” position.
- Motion Detectors – the lift will stop if the sensors pick up any interference around the lift and stop its movement.
- Remote Digital Camera & Monitor – aids in the recognition of potential interference during the lift operation.
Showroom Lift with Rotating Turntable
SOLVING A CLIENT’S STRUCTURAL CHALLENGE.
A homeowner wanted his automobile collection incorporated into his new home garage design. However, the new structural design plans prohibited any cars from driving onto the lift in either forward or reverse. If the lift was lowered to the car showroom, a wall would block the cars from driving forward, while a staircase from behind prevented cars from reversing.
To address this architectural challenge, Vasari’s engineer’s designed a Vasari 4-Post Parking Lift with a custom rotating turntable. This solved the obstruction in the showroom-garage by allowing vehicles to rotate to the side and exit off the platform.
MORNING STAR LIFT AND ELEVATOR OFFERS CUSTOM CAR LIFTS AND CARLOFTS BY HARDING STEEL
The CARLOFT by Harding Steel from Morning Star Lift and Elevator has been developed for the discriminating custom home owner and custom home builder. The design principle behind this system enables vehicles to be stored in the otherwise unused attic or “loft” space often found above conventional garage bays. This machine is in essence “lofting” the cars above the garage floor up and out of the way.
Harding Steel has developed this product for both residential and commercial hydraulic auto lift projects. The CARLOFT can be designed into new construction and with careful planning and execution may be retrofitted into existing homes. No longer are traditional lifts needed that mount to the garage floor and take up space. You are getting your surface area back and never have to pull under a traditional lift again. Gone are the days of vertical posts that are in the way of doors, mirrors, and people.
Harding Steel is offering this system in a variety of standard garage configurations with dimensions that can be configured to the individual project.
