Automatic barriers or "Boom gates" are typically found at parking facilities, checkpoints and entrances to restricted areas.
They are also the usual method for controlling passage through toll booths. In some places, boom gates are installed as a traffic calming measure, preventing through traffic, while allowing authorised vehicles such as emergency services and buses to take advantage of the shorter and more direct route.
Hallgate are one of the leading installers of Automatic barriers in the UK. Our designs use the latest technology to maintain the barriers smooth operation, via an integral Telemecanique inverter driven motor and gearbox drive, which only requires a single phase supply, providing a smooth consistent operation. Our barriers are controlled by a Telemecanique PLC Control Board, which can be programmed to suit any form of access control requirements, therefore allowing speedy installation and no return visits to modify the programmes.
