simplest semi-automatic system, the Combilift 551 provides two parking
levels without a pit. The 551 can be configured in rows of two to 10
a six car system, for example, there are six lifting platforms allowing
six cars to be driven on the platforms at ground level and raised. Below
the lifting platforms are five sliding platforms.
additional cars can be driven on to these platforms, leaving one open
space at ground level. To retrieve a ground level car, the user simply
enters the car and drives out. To retrieve an upper level car, the user
pushes a button corresponding to the upper level space where the required
car is parked. The system will automatically move the lower level cars
sideways to make a space below the car to be retrieved.
The upper platform will then lower the
car to ground level.

Combilift 542 works in a similar fashion to the 551, but lowers cars
into a pit instead of raising cars to an upper level. The Combilift
542 is particularly suited to new buildings where garage ceiling height
needs to be low. This arrangement also allows tall vehicles to be parked
on the upper level.
Combilift comes standard with theft-proof automatic sliding gates that
protect garage users from falling into the pit and separate them from
the machinery during operation.
Combilift 543 provides the highest density semi-automatic system by
providing parking on three levels. Separate platforms can be raised
and lowered to the upper and pit levels. A third set of platforms at
ground level slide sideways.
As an example, a six space wide machine can park 17 cars. Cars always
enter and exit at the ground level. Automatic gates are also standard
with this machine.
