Buoyant Protection / Buoy

Buoyant Protection
Buoyant Protection

Buoyant Protection is a kind of facility that can separate the car from the accumulated water in the underground parking lot. It uses buoyancy to expand the protection cover to protect the cars parked in the parking lot. The folding structure is hidden inside the parking lot indicating line of the underground parking lot. In the case of standing water, the protective cover encounters standing water. The linear waterproof floating float of the parking space mark rises upward, which drives the folded and folded protective cover to unfold slowly. Such a structure plays a role in isolating accumulated water.
