Scunthorpe & Grimsby Hospital Parking System

Hospitals, VMS

Visitors and staff are now directed around Scunthorpe & Grimsby Hospitals to available parking spaces by Sheriff Technologies variable message signs (VMS).

The VMS integrate with existing car park data infrastructure ensuring data acquisition costs are negligible. The signs are located at critical decision points around the hospital sites, ensuring drivers are presented with up to the minute car park status to inform their parking decisions.

Cost-clever VMS

Car park Spaces sign

Using a Sheriff Technologies SPACES / FULL sign is a cost-clever way of gaining the benifits of variable message signs in a car park using existing barrier or count equipment.

The VMS are voltage driven by 24v, meaning integration with almost all car park barriers is easy. The VMS then automatically switch between SPACES and FULL messages depening on car park status - advertising the availability of spaces to attract more visitors when spaces are available and prevent needless queuing and improve visitor experience when a car park is full.
