Designed for Quality, Reliability & Versatility
Our barriers are designed and built to offer high quality and to be reliable and robust. They are also designed to be versatile so they can be used in a variety of applications and configured to be controlled in a wide range of ways.
Wide Variety of Control Options
Our barriers have an integral programmable control board, which can be set up to handle any site configuration & interfaced with a various access control mechanisms.
Control mechanisms may include any of the options below or a combination of them:
- Wired control button located at the security/reception desk
- Key switch control located on the barrier
- 24/7 timer located within the barrier
- Keycode with keypad located on an access pedestal near the barrier
- Wired or wireless intercom operated with the call unit located on an access pedestal and the receiver unit located at the security/reception desk
- Fob operated from within the vehicle
- Proximity card operated from within the vehicle with card reader located on an access pedestal
- Free-exit inductive loop beneath the road surface to allow the barrier to open when an exiting vehicle nears from within the premises
Long Arm Spans with Skirted, High-Bar & Articulated Options
Our powerful barrier ranges are designed to cater for a wide range of road widths with models that can smoothly lift arms that are just a few metres to up to 9 metres long. They can also have skirted or high-bar configurations. Arms with bottom skirts can span up to 8 metres and arms with high-bar skirts can span up to 6.5 metres. Where there are low ceilings and height is limited, the arms can also be articulated.
Attractive & Sturdy Construction and Easy to Locate
Our aluminium externally placed barrier control cabinet has been designed to stand out from the rest. Its sleek looks are achieved by investing heavily into aluminium extrusions to ensure product longevity, making it look as good as the day it was installed.
Available in standard red/white and black/red combinations, the cabinet may also be supplied in other optional colours to suit your needs.
The power input to our automatic barrier is 230V with an integral frequency inverter that powers a three phase motor, thus offering reliability and high torque.
This sturdy control cabinet, motor and gearbox combination provides a smooth, consistent barrier operation without the need for springs or counterweights.
In addition, the 230V single phase supply means that the barrier can be located where three phase supply would otherwise be difficult or costly.
Safety & Security
Our CE and TUV approved barriers are provided with a safety strip beneath the barrier arm as standard (for non-articulated arms). This strip stops the barrier from lowering as soon as an obstruction is encountered.
In addition, we use an optional combination of photocells and safety inductive loops (the latter installed beneath the road surface) to ensure safety and security.
Optional red/green arm lights make the barrier more visible during the evening and 12″ signs (e.g. “Stop”, “No Entry”) provide clarity for drivers. Optional warning sirens, flashing beacons and traffic lights that are linked to the barrier’s operation also aid safety.
