Facade gratings for multi-storey car park

The volume of traffic in Germany is rising continuously. We tend to drive when running most errands, for instance daily shopping or picking the kids up from school. These days, almost every household in Germany owns at least one car. Not only does this mean an increase in road accidents and pollutant emissions, but also a scarcity of parking facilities in city centre locations.

In many cases, parking in the core city is restricted to residents, or is prohibitively expensive and only available for short periods. This is one of the reasons for the boom in building multi-storey car parks.

The majority of car parks are multi-storey buildings providing parking facilities for cars and motorcycles. Car parks are built in larger cities or adjacent to shopping centres, supermarkets, leisure facilities or airports. In most cases, users will be asked to pay a fee to park their cars. Car parks tend to be busy places, which naturally leads to the emission of substantial volumes of exhaust gas. And this is precisely why it is so important to ensure effective air circulation and the introduction of sufficient fresh air! 

Staco Deutschland manufactured and delivered pressed gratings to use in the facade design of a factory car park operated by a well-known car manufacturer. The Staco pressed gratings made of hot-dip galvanised steel with a mesh size of 33.3 x 33.3mm are installed as a decorative element throughout the building complex. The large mesh permits sufficient sunlight and fresh air to enter the multi-storey car park, while the vehicles inside are protected against the wind and the weather. The highly durable and galvanised pressed grating is rustproof and doesn't need to be replaced for many years. Even maintenance is unnecessary.

In addition to their use as facade elements, gratings can be installed in the ramps and walkways of multi-storey car parks. The right anti-slip surface gives cars the purchase they need, while also ensuring that pedestrians can move about safely.
