One of Montreals major hospitals wanted to install Pay & Display equipment. This project included a number of special requirements including the fact that solar power was the only available option. However, some locations received very little sunlight. Furthermore, they wanted shelters that could provide protection for the elderly during the winter and that would also allow people with reduced mobility to pay for their parking.
Cale Systems is at its best in the face of such challenges. They designed a special shelter; one with a solar power option, securely mounted on a post, high enough to prevent vandalism. The 360 brackets enable the customer to move the panel as required in order to optimise the sunlight. The design also prevents the accumulation of snow.
This installation has been well received and the Cale engineering team has been praised many times for their innovative skills and the ability to identify parking solutions. A number of MPC 104s have now been installed and are operating perfectly at the Louis Hippolyte Lafontaine Hospital in Montreal.
