Barrier Automation

Vehicle access control to parking areas and site entrances is achieved effectively with automatic barriers. Our barriers range from the short boom, rapid, 3 metre model which lifts/lowers in 3 seconds (usually used in multi-storey car parks), to the long boom, slower, 12 metre heavy industrial barriers (which are more suitable for level crossings and large lorry parks). The most common are the 4 metre fast barrier and the 6 metre Normal barrier both giving heavy duty rating.

The booms are extruded aluminium and range from 2 metres up to 12 metres long depending on the barrier chosen. Articulated booms are available where a height limit is required. Bottom skirts and signs can be fitted to the boom to make them more prominent and to prevent pedestrians walking underneath. All our barriers come complete with an electronic control panel to integrate with access control systems and safety devices.

These  items are typically installed upon a Barrier System
