The new Barrier System has been designed and installed to deter un-authorised Parking on “The Hub” Car Park which is a private Car Park for staff and clients of The Hub only. This limits Parking facilities available for genuine clients of the Hub.
The System has been designed to be as simple and quick to use as reasonably possible.
The Safety of The Hubs Clients, Visitors and Staff are of the upmost importance. It is very important to follow a number of simple rules to ensure safe operation and use of the barrier system.
The system is designed to control the flow of vehicles ON and OFF the Car Park. It is NOT designed to detect Human traffic walking in the Roadway and under the Barriers!
The System uses a series of Vehicle Loop Sensors that are installed within the road surface [These DO NOT detect Human beings or Cyclists]
Pedestrians and Cyclists must use the Pavement access to the Right of the Vehicle entrance. The Barriers are automatic and could hit a Pedestrian or Cyclist in the Roadway as they will not be detected by the systems safety detectors.
Drive slowly up to the IN Barrier and STOP, the barrier will Automatically be raised to allow you to enter the Car Park, Wait until the Barrier Warning lights change from Red to Green before proceeding onto the Car Park, the barrier will be lowered as you clear the entrance.
When you have made a purchase in The Hub, or have attended one of the facilities/activities, please obtain a TOKEN from either Nursery, Cappuccino’s, Splash or The Salon.
Drive slowly up to the OUT Barrier and STOP, Insert the Token into the Token Mechanism [The Token has two slots that line up with slots in the Mechanism] the barrier will Automatically be raised to allow you to leave the Car Park, Wait until the Barrier Warning lights change from Red to Green before proceeding off the Car Park, the barrier will be lowered as you clear the exit.
On Exiting the Car Park, DO NOT tailgate the vehicle in front of you, the barrier is SET to close as the vehicle leaves the site. Attempting to Tailgate [Follow closely behind the vehicle leaving in front of you] is likely to result in Damage to your vehicle!
There is an Intercom fitted above the Token Mechanism, should you have difficulty exiting the Car Park, Please press the intercom Button and wait for assistance.
The Token Mechanism is solely designed to accept the tokens issued by “The Hub” using a different token or coin will “Jam” the mechanism, stuck tokens can be “rejected” by pushing the round button under the Token Slot.
Tokens have two slots cut in them; the Mechanism will accept the token either way round. BUT the tokens have to be inserted with the Slots approximately horizontal so the slots line up with the Token mechanism.
