Car Park Barriers
Your parking structure has the potential to generate a lot of revenue, but having an extensive payroll only drives your profit margin down. Automatic car park barriers, with their accompanying technology, control incoming and outgoing vehicles. A complete setup allows you to have only two people on site for customer questions and concerns, usually a manager and hourly worker.
Each structure has its own height and width clearances when vehicles enter or exit. Choose among customized barriers that fit your lanes. Traditional arms that lift from a support are available, along with hinged types that fit snug lane widths. Measure your space before deciding on an arm type. All barriers are firmly installed in the ground to prevent any vehicles from damaging the parking system.
Automatic Car Park Barriers
Your first automatic car park barrier stops vehicles for an automated ticket kiosk. Branded with your company logo, time stamp and legal conditions, this ticket activates the barrier and allows the vehicle to park.
Enhancing Your Incoming Vehicle Entrance Times
Finding a parking spot in a busy garage takes time and may deter other vehicles from entering the structure. Make parking easy and fun at the same time, by adding a vehicle sensor system. Each parking spot has a corresponding light hanging above it. Green indicates an open spot while red denotes a vehicle is present. Your customers simply scan the lane for an open spot rather than examining each area for an empty space. Vehicles move rapidly into the building for high profits.
Depending on your business design, allow customers to validate their ticket or simply pay a fee upon leaving the structure. To avoid long lines at the automatic car park barriers, install several ticket kiosks where visitors exit the building on foot. Paying through cash or credit card, customers insert their tickets and pay the corresponding kiosk fee. The original ticket remains inside the machine for accounting purposes while the customer receives a paid ticket ready for the automatic car park barriers.
Your parking structure may house residents or workers on a daily basis for surrounding businesses. Offer a card option for your automatic car park barriers so that residents may skip the ticket process and work off of a card that has a monthly fee. This fast access retains business use and happy customers.
Exiting The Building
As your customers approach the automatic car park barriers, they simply insert their ticket into the exit kiosk. The arm lifts up automatically to release the vehicle. If there are any concerns, such as a ticket that does not activate the arm, a simple kiosk button should be available to speak to an attendant.
Offering automatic car park barriers keeps your profit margins strong while making your customers happy. The installation price pays for itself quickly as more vehicles move in and out of your structure.
