A pair of points 102, 103 are marked out along opposed stall lines 89, 89a, the 3 feet-4 inch dimension 101 being set out from the base line 81 along the stall line to define the points 102, 103. On the contrary, the intent is to cover all alternatives, modifications and equivalents included within the spirit and scope of the invention as defined by the appended claims. 1 and 4. The upper member 22 is then installed on the base 21 with a "nominal width" aperture over the pivot pin 23 to make an initial calculation. 0000021357 00000 n Parking Layout Dimensions. The lines 81 and 82 are the base references along which the stalls are to be laid out, and may be considered analogous to the base lines 40, 41. As will become more apparent, setting the calculator up to solve a particular problem (such as the layout of FIG. xref (B) • Determine the percentage of gross public assembly uses (Gross Public Assembly/AGA X 100%). The desired stall angle is achieved with precision, approximation and guesswork being eliminated. One situation commonly encountered involves the layout of stalls in an area insufficient to accommodate two bays and an adequate aisle when the stalls are laid out perpendicularly. 0000000933 00000 n The line 72 emanating from the aperture 32 is then aligned with the desired angle line 52 (the 70° line) on the lower member by rotating the upper member to the position illustrated in FIG. b. To use this calculated data to lay out the stall array, the dimensions are transferred to the lot itself, illustrated schematically in FIG. As an example, a 200-space parking lot that is estimated to require 325 square feet per stall will need a paved area of 65,000 square feet, or about 1.5 acres. The calculator includes a first member having orthogonal length and width scales as well as angle indicators relating to desired stall angle. 6.C.1.B, SharedParkingor is allowed pursuant to Art. While the foregoing is sufficient to illustrate the operation of a calculator constructed in accordance with the invention, the following will emphasize its flexibility. It is emphasized that using the calculated orthogonal striking dimensions rather than the desired dimensions, all measurements on the lot are made either along defined axes or in right angle relationship thereto. ��)��8v*F���650d='պ�'�_-�.7��0��G��*'�Br �+w�SS�E��Ӭ�h����X�Rh�1q����5���ǍNbؓ`#e��v��}�Tʴ��J���v�I�ɟ5k?��gJ�W��l@M��Q���-L��x�C�To If space is no problem, the stalls may be laid out at right angles to the base line, in which case it is not difficult to rule the lot before painting to define the desired stall lengths and widths. The array thus laid out is then painted to complete the job. Type of Parking . Check out the ADA National Network’s Accessible Parking Fact Sheet for more information. 1, the upper member 22 is positioned with the 9 foot width aperture 32 over the pivot pin 23 to accommodate a first of the requirements. 1. 5. Start with a 90 degree angle from the curb, measure out the distance from curb, measure over the offset, connect the two points, and you now have the exact angle you need. In many situations the desired length, width and angle are not predetermined, but must be calculated to achieve a particular requirement, such as the maximum number of stalls in a given area. The calculator as set forth in claim 2 wherein said alignment indicia of the selected width pivot point and said desired stall length scale intersect at a point defining in said grid the orthogonal stall length and partial stall width for laying out said desired angle. It should be noted that the width scale on the upper member 22 may be configured with only a single pivot point, and indicia in the form of lined graduations on the scale provided for the various desired stall widths. A parking ratio is a comparison of parking spots available at a building to the square footage of floor space. See more ideas about parking design, how to plan, parking building. This "fine tuning" of stall width to fit the lot dimensions becomes even simpler with the alternative upper member described previously wherein a sole pivot point is related to a series of desired width indicia ruled on the upper member. 4 schematically illustrates a parking lot laid out with the calculator as adjusted in FIG. <]>> Source: UFC 3-210-02: POV Site Circulation and Parking, with Change 1, January 2004. 3, there is shown a scale 100 along the edge 60, emanating from the zero length line 62 and graduated in terms of lineal measure, in the instant case feet and inches. ramps), lighting design, landscaping, drainage, and overall traffic flow including that of pedestrians. 1. The software makes what could otherwise become a tedious task much faster. It should be noted that FIG. A suggested parking requirement for such neighborhood centers is 2:1 (two square feet of parking area to one square foot of net floor selling space) which is the same as saying 6.7 car spaces per 1,000 square feet of floor space (if each car is presumed to require 300 square feet of parking area). Reserve: Reserves restricted to parking must meet parking stall requirements listed in the building code. Parking Space Dimensions Typical parking stall dimensions vary with the angle at which the stall is arranged in relation to the aisle. Place Warning Signs; Passing Sight Dist. A series of angle indicia 50-55 emanate from the origin 23 toward the grid 43, and are calibrated in terms of desired stall angle. _"�NK�ۮ([��G��OH$Ib�TV@���$��m��z�n�5�V?cq�,h"D�쎄��/����0��k}��D v�=��J�t���Z��˦xTR�S�жje��h�2mM��08���ɶUU6�,���!�%U� 2x�Վ�1y�Jȅ臽Bk��Z�É�~�哱� "�4{+q�+J��AN�^� t,j��u w�Jy���Fy�X�B���z��է������X2��G ;Ω#S���� The lines 63, 64, 65 are parallel to line 62 and scaled therefrom so as to be related to common desired stall lengths of 18, 19 and 20 feet. endstream endobj 7 0 obj <> endobj 8 0 obj <> endobj 9 0 obj <>/ColorSpace<>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text/ImageB]/ExtGState<>>> endobj 10 0 obj <> endobj 11 0 obj <> endobj 12 0 obj <>stream Parking Lot Striping, also known as Traffic Markings, provides organized traffic flow and clearly marked parking stalls and areas for vehicles to park. 1 shows the calculator at about actual size, indicating that the instrument is sufficiently small to be easily carried and manipulated, but large enough to be accurately read. 2. 0000001060 00000 n Hand manipulated computing devices characterised by a specific application, Hand manipulated computing devices in which a straight or curved line has to be drawn from given points on one or more input scales to one or more points on a result scale, Method and device for space-saving parking of motor vehicles, Laser gauging system and component parts therefor, Method and system for automatically performing a study of a multidimensional space, Optical position measurement system employing one or more linear detector arrays, Tape measure for determining the centerpoint of a distance, Method of measuring a vehicular frame to determine alignment, Optical device, and method of measuring the dimension of object using optical device, Combination tape measure and range finder, Measuring fracture orientation at exposed rock faces by using a non-reflector total station, Top reading rule using blades with directional arrows, Device and method to define angles on a workpiece, Contract estimating system utilizing a digitizing ruler.

The calculator as set forth in claim 4 wherein said reference means on said second member crosses the width axis of said first member to indicate the repetitive stall width. 0000004562 00000 n The result is usually expressed per 1,000 square feet. Because luminaires are designed to meet the needs of different parking lot geometries, manufacturers assign distribution types that describe the coverage area of the luminaire and its shape. 3.B, Overlays. Places of worship. In view of the foregoing, it is a general aim of the present invention to provide a calculator for simplifying the layout of parking lots by calculating orthogonal dimensions related to the axis of the lot which may be easily and accurately laid out. Other objects and advantages will become apparent with reference to the following detailed description when taken in conjunction with the drawings in which: FIG. The upper member 22 is rotated with respect to the base member 21 until the desired length line (at the point it intersects the line emanating from the nominal width aperture) intersects the available bay length dimension 85 on the grid 43. This dimension may be divided by the repetitive stall width 92 to determine the number of stalls which may be accommodated. ԋy֪`��w�ة>J�|2�J�� V��9t�q}� �����0a�^�W��~żwӘ7��#����;����vN8�+ ď}�ɉ�Y�?����=РTC���R:�i�tu�ս�MT�l�?~ 0��o"�Ҹ`�DQ�B�S��>�ˈ�9��\ �n��(�{w��#A'[dC��՚(�&�~��E`��(��l��%��v�c���T���JϪ>#�f[B&hj��!qH�%�s��6�����ӮF or on‐street parking may be used to satisfy the requirement as detailed below. Chalk lines 105 are then snapped from the intersection of the forward bumper line 104 and the respective stall lines 89, 89a to the origin of the next adjacent stall line. As can be expected, an inordinate amount of time is usually expended in laying out the first stall in a bay. Reading such scales in the present example yields an orthogonal length 85 of 18 feet-8 inches and an initial or partial width 88 of 6 feet-9 inches. Table of Contents. 2020-001] 4. Compute the paved area required for parking by multiplying the required number of stalls by the estimated land area per stall. Parking Standards for Use Classes 51 Parking Standards for Use 0000016942 00000 n 6 19 On top of that, each type of land use, whether it’s for offices, manufacturing or wholesaling, has its own rules to calculate the parking spaces required per square meter. The second member is positioned for pivoting on the first, is aligned according to the desired stall data to provide a direct readout of the orthogonal length and width dimensions necessary to lay out the stalls. See Figure 2 for a diagram. According to standard access guidelines, parking spaces for RVs with a lift must be at least 20 feet wide in order to give room to lower the lift and get mobility devices (such as a wheelchair) off of it. Parking space design and a great commercial parking area is the prime convenience advantage of the office complex over the central business district. There are three basic patterns of parking lot layouts. 0000004396 00000 n Signs and Markings. 0000021644 00000 n The calculator includes a first member having orthogonal length and width scales as well as angle indicators relating to desired stall angle. 1 shows the assembled calculator 20 comprising a pair of scale carrying members, namely a lower member 21 and an upper member 22. Operation of the calculator 20 for laying out a parking lot, will be described with reference to FIGS. A chalk line is then snapped connecting these points to define a forward bumper line 104. In the instant example the initial conditions will be defined as 9 by 20 foot stalls angled at 70°. • There must be safe pedestrian movement from parking to buildings. Disabled parking will generally be located as close as possible to an available curb ramp. !�?4�����3��š|&���G&ϕ�a�S���;$�J�rv?���ۜ�3����� \����[� 4{��d����;Aw^�6O9�Ů�d6f�W_#7A0��Q The apertures 30-39 fall in a straight line 62 which may be termed a "zero length line", or the base line in a 90° situation. If parking spaces are angled, the width of the individual parking spaces are reduced to 9 feet and the width of the one-way traffic lanes are reduced, resulting in approximately 162 spaces per acre. 1; and. 1; FIG. So, an office with 300 parking spots and 60,000 square feet of office space has a ratio of five spots for each 1,000 square feet. Occupants . Using chalk lines to connect associated points results in the layout of the remaining stall lines 89a. The intersection of the width indicator (the edge 60) with the axis 40 defines the repetitive stall width 92, in the instant example read as 9 feet-8 inches. Rehabilitation facilities that specialize in treating mobility-related conditions and outpatient physical therapy facilities need 20% of patient/visitor spaces to be accessible. 0000001736 00000 n ��G��)s���eY�^r�d�E�������\uzW�Ǿ#����,�"��< FIG.

Example design for 150 parking spaces per acre with 10’ by 18’ spaces. 90 Degree Parking • Most efficient use of space (most parking spaces per square foot of parking) • Accommodates two-way traffic • An aisle of 26' is required. 3, with the illustrated upper member, a similar scale 100a is provided along edge 61 to allow computation of bumper dimensions when using the apertures 35-39. 1. The calculator as set forth in claim 2 wherein said second member further includes bumper scale means along said reference means and having an origin at said zero length line, said bumper scale means intersecting the width scale of said first member to calculate a forward bumper line dimension for facilitating layout of bumpers in said stalls. A chalk line is snapped to connect these points, and thus defines end line 86, establishing the orthogonal bay length. 4. Referring again to FIG. 0 Fraction Precision Set 1/8 1/16 1/32 1/64 Decimal Inch Metric All Inch inputs and dimensions are actual physical finished sizes (unless otherwise noted) 28’ PAE: Parallel parking spaces located on a PAE must be 20 long and 8 feet wide. This module lists and displays dimensions for surface parking lots with common stall orientation angles. According to a mathematics professor at the University of Salford, parking lots should use an angled-space design. For example, if two bays and an aisle are required in a lot of given width, the aisle width is subtracted from the lot width, and the remainder divided by 2 to determine the orthogonal length available for each bay, the dimension previously referred to as 85. Health Care Facilities: a. It will now be appreciated that what has been achieved is a calculator which not only simplifies the laying out of parking lot stalls, but also increases the accuracy with which such stalls may be laid out. For example, if a stall width of 9 feet is desired, the aperture 32 is positioned over the pivot pin and the edge 60 serves as the indicator for this stall width. The same goes with utility hookups; you’ll need an extra three feet of space to access the utility hookups if you use a mobility device. Conveniently, both members may be made from this material. The lines 105 thus comprise bumper lines along which the stall bumpers are centered following painting of the lot. 1, thereby to define the second requirement. It is noted that a 18 to 20 foot aisle is generally considered to be the "standard aisle". 6. %PDF-1.4 %���� 4 are determined. ramps), lighting design, landscaping, drainage, and overall traffic flow including that of pedestrians. The scale along the axis 40, as well as the corresponding scale in the grid 43 are used to read the calculated orthogonal width dimensions 88 and 92 (to be described below). Furthermore, the calculator may be manipulated to "fine tune" the calculated dimensions for maximizing the number of stalls and to eliminate wasted space at the end of the bay. The minimum dimensions are given in Attachments 2 through 6: 1. 4) involves positioning of one of the apertures 30-39 over the pivot pin 23 and rotating the top member 22 with respect to the base 21 according to a set of desired conditions in order to calculate layout dimensions. 24 0 obj <>stream The apertures 30-34 are related to the edge 60 for stall widths indicated adjacent the respective apertures. Disabled Parking – if designated by the County as reserved disabled parking the space shall not be considered as accessible and dimensions shall match adjacent parking space design criteria. When the calculation of required parking spaces is based on the number of occupants, the calculation More and more parking lots are being laid out to accurately define the area available for each parked vehicle by painting lines on the surface of the lot to define respective parking stalls. Initially, it is necessary to define or determine the initial conditions. 1 where it is shown that with the calculator set up to solve a particular problem, the scale 100 crosses the axis 40 to define a point 101 on the scale 100, in the present example read as 3 feet-4 inches.
