Frequently Asked Questions

Where do your VMS Boards come from?

All our products, including our VMS Boards, are 100% manufactured in our Brendale Workshops. We don’t import and resell. We design and manufacture in-house and guarantee quality and serviceability.

Do you supply Australia and New Zealand wide?

We do supply Australia and New Zealand wide. Please approach us for freight costs.

How can we control your VMS Boards?

We provide two options controlling our boards. The basic option is via the traditional in-cabin control box. The more advanced option would be via our IP65 rated windows-based tablet, what would include the ability to control any Arrow board with the same device.

What additional equipment can we order from Arrowes complementing our VMS Boards?
