When creating a traffic management system, the organisation of parking is an important component. There may be times when parking needs to be restricted to one type of driver. Parking bay signs are an effective method of managing the parking on your premises so that spaces are available for the vehicles for which they are intended.

Roads and vehicles on a work site are a common hazard. Using parking bay signs to indicate where people can park, or to prevent unauthorised parking, will minimise confusion - creating a safer and more efficient traffic system. Learn more about the sign types available and how they can increase efficiency and safety in our buying guide.

FAQs


Do I need personalised road signs for my site car park?

In shared parking areas, custom parking signs are often required to designate staff or visitor parking bays that have been allocated to individual businesses. They may also be used to differentiate between areas within a company’s own site car park, such as employee parking signs to indicate staff parking areas, or reserved bays for management or company directors.

Personalised signage may also be required in residential areas, where a resident parking only sign may be necessary to indicate restricted parking areas, or to designate privately-owned or allocated spaces.

With its own in-house production facility, Seton can provide competitively-priced personalised signs with a fast turnaround. Design your own personalised road sign, using our online customisation tools to choose your design, layout, colour, material and mounting option. Add your logo and/or your required wording. This could include names, job titles, vehicle types or restrictions.

Do parking bays need to be clearly marked and signed?

Clarity and visibility are the two most important considerations when selecting parking bay signs. Accurate positioning is essential to ensure that the signs are easily visible to motorists, particularly those containing information about parking restrictions.

The British Parking Association has provided a useful guide to parking bay sizes and colour coding, as well as an essential guide to parking bay signage. This advice is particularly important in respect of the minimum dimensions required for bays that are reserved for disabled badge holders. Government guidelines recommend that 6% of parking areas is allocated to disabled drivers. These spaces should be clearly identified by disabled parking bay signs positioned at the driver’s eye level, using the International Symbol of Access (ISA) – wheelchair symbol – with or without the words ‘Disabled Only’.

Other restricted parking areas should also be clearly marked with a reserved parking sign, for example, a personalised permit parking sign, parent and child parking, or electric vehicle charging signage where applicable.

Marking and signposting parking bays does not need to be complicated. At Seton, our knowledgeable staff understand how to create smart, compliant signs for our clients, and our extensive range contains traffic and parking signs for almost every situation.

Can I put "no parking" signs anywhere on my site?

Parking restriction signage is a key component of any traffic management strategy. A reserved parking sign for authorised vehicles only, or a no parking sign clearly indicates restricted areas, keeps the traffic moving smoothly and reduces accidents. Car park safety includes the provision of safe pedestrian routes through parking areas, and this will require directional signage to indicate the direction of traffic flow to motorists and safe pathways for pedestrians.

What are the best car parking bay signs for my business?

Our professional signage is weather-resistant and durable, and will last for many years. The signs are available in a choice of materials, including plastic, polycarbonate and rigid plastic. We also supply premium quality laser engraved acrylic or steel/vinyl signs. All are suitable for both wall and post mounting. You should also consider whether you need a reflective/non-reflective – or anti-graffiti – finish.
