To start the work you will need the complaint from start of business.
For condominiums, the works must obviously be submitted and approved by the assembly of the condominium.

Volume calculation example


The spaces by and parking lotsaccording to Tognoli law, must be no less than 1 m² for every 10 m³ of construction. So for every 10 m³ of building volume, one m² must be allocated to the parking space.

Piccolo example calculation: suppose we have a house with a volume of 200 cubic meters; if an extension of 30% is carried out, this is equal to 60 m³. The extension is considered a new ergo construction, the space to be allocated to parking is equal to 60/10, or 6 m².

  • Operation: electro-hydraulic.
  • Motor type: single phase 220V.
  • Capacity: Kg. 2000 – 2500.
  • Controls: low voltage with “dead man” system with removable key. Wall pushbutton panel.
  • Mechanical safety with automatic insertion.
  • Hydraulic safety: parachute valve and maximum flow control valve.
  • Lifting height: from 0 to 1900 mm with adjustable stop at will.
  • On request useful platform 2000 mm; lifting height up to mm. 2200; platform with removable central sheet.
