With one car parked on top of the closed Cardok garage , the second parking space remains out of sight below ground.
Press the remote control, and the Cardok garage starts to lift, revealing the additional parking space inside. Within less than thirty seconds, the Cardok garage is completely open. For safety, the remote control has a simple ‘hold-to-run’ operation, meaning it stops the instant it is released.
A second car can then be driven onto the Cardok’s lower platform. Press the button again, and the Cardok is closed, hiding the second car from view. The driveway returns to its normal appearance; the top car can be driven away, and a passer-by would struggle to guess what’s concealed underneath.
Each platform can support a safe working load of three tonnes. A Range Rover weighs approximately 2.7 tonnes.
