WÖHR is a German-based company that specializes in parking systems. Its turntable is a simple but effective solution to maneuvering your car in a tight space.
In areas where vehicles can only drive forward or parking space is limited, the turntable rotates the automobile into the correct position.
Typically when a driver wants to get their parked car out of a small driveway, they would have to pull off a U-turn in the narrow area. Sometimes, there isn’t enough room for them to maneuver without it becoming a time-consuming process or even cause a minor accident.
The turntable spins the entire car around within seconds. Now, the driver is free to drive in the preferred direction without any extra stress or wasted time.
The turntable can rotate at 360 degrees clockwise and counterclockwise. It can even hold up to 4,000 kilograms or 8,818 pounds.
But this isn’t just about a luxurious way to avoid a U-turn — WÖHR’s company ethos is all about green parking.
For six decades, WÖHR has developed, built and installed space-saving parking solutions. The family-owned business focuses on adapting parking systems to high-density urban areas because that’s where sustainable parking is most needed.
If parking is more compact, the unused real estate can be conserved for public use or green spaces. Moreover, space-saving, accessible parking means less driving around for the perfect spot, which means fewer carbon emissions and cleaner air. The turntable requires the vehicle uses less fuel and that’s not just easier for the driver, it’s better for the environment.
