2 Post Cantilever Parking System


A 2 Post parking system (also known as a cantilever or stacker parking system) is one of the most basic mechanical parking systems available.


How it works

2 post system 2This parking system is built using a cantilever design, which is a beam anchored at only one end (the fulcrum). The jutting beam bears the load of the vehicle and transfers it to the support where it is forced against by a moment (product of a force and its distance from an axis) and shear stress (the force vector component parallel to the cross section). Cantilever construction allows for an overhanging arm without bracing at the far end.


Operator’s experience

At most installation sites, these 2 Post systems are installed one right next to another. Basically an operator selects a vacant space, and parks their vehicle between the two posts. After exiting the vehicle, the operator may raise it to the upper position by pushing a button that activates the UP function.
