Two Councils Approve Design Of Metric Parking Machines

Two local authorities approved the design of the parking machines to be installed on street in the spa town of Buxton in Derbyshire.
The adjudicators of the new roadside furniture were Derbyshire County Council and High Peak Borough Council who placed the order for the eight Metric S2 machines.
Both councils made the decision on how the new pay and display machines should look and fit in with the other roadside furniture in the town.

The machines, which will cater for smart cards for the management of hotel, business and residents’ parking in Buxton, will be installed during October.

About The S2 Machines

metric_s2.jpgThe Accent S2, ergonomically designed to look aesthetically pleasing in both a traditional or modern setting. The slim-line ergonomic shape can be supplied in a wide choice of colours to suit either local style or environmental requirements. Our latest machine is ruggedly constructed from reinforced steel and clad in a modern industrial plastic. The Accent S2 offers all the features of the very latest styling.

The Accent S2 is virtually indestructible. Both the machine and the vault doors activate a 105db intruder alarm system if forced and the vault door is 5 mm thick. The locks and keys are unique to each customer and if requested there are no master keys, which offers added security.

With each cashbox withdrawal issued, a sequentially numbered receipt is given which gives the location, cash value and number of tickets sold. A detailed audit is available on all transactions and the last 10 cash box totals can be readily available in case of accidental loss of data.
