1983

Screenguard introduce the first offstreet pay parking systems in Ireland. Beaumont Hospital had enormous parking problems with patients regularly having to park out at the gates on on the public road and walk to the hospital. The hospital designed a new patient carpark in front of A&E to alleviate the situation and installed the Screenguard Fixed Charge Parking System. The cash unit was designed and installed in Ireland and allowed the old Irish punt coinage and tokens. Parking problems were eliminated overnight and the system was a brilliant workhorse for the hospital for nearly 10 years.
