Parking Lots, Stations in Lewis are designed specifically for automobile parking. Alternately called parking structure, parking ramp, parkade or parking deck, it is a facility with a number of floors or levels on which parking takes place. Parking Garage in Lewis, however, refers only to an indoor, often underground structure. A garage often requires mechanical ventilation or sprinklers.
The movement of vehicles between floors can be effected by interior or exterior ramps, vehicle lifts, and combination systems of ramp and elevator. These parking structures are subjected to the heavy and shifting loads of moving vehicles, and must bear the associated physical stresses associated with them. Automated car parking and modular car parks are other car park facilities in Lewis.
Besides indoor parking, one may also avail of an outdoor parking facility where the charges for parking may be comparatively cheaper.
