Signs Now's tender was successful and we installed the gantry sign. Post-installation we returned to site and trained BAA staff to program the display from a remote office over a mile from the sign. Programming the sign is simple as at the sign location we have installed a GSM modem with data enabled SIM card which allows BAA to send messages to the sign using our supplied user-friendly PC software. LED beacons in each corner are utilised when important messages are displayed. Wide-angle ultra-bright amber LEDs ensure that the sign is visible in direct sunlight. In-coming traffic is able to see up-to-the-minute messages directing them to open car parks and alerting them to delays or adverse weather conditions.
