Barrier Gate Arms

Barrier Gate Arm Openers

Barrier gate arms are a great way to add security and safety to parking areas, car washes, and other entry/exit ways. They are installed at access points to secure traffic going in and coming out. Most barrier arms are equipped with sensors and other access control devices like card readers, keypads, receivers, and transmitters. Barrier gate arms are extremely popular in high-traffic areas across the world. There are many benefits to installing a gate arm, and knowing how they work is vital to know which type of security system is right for certain environments.

Traffic flows through gate arms in a number of ways. The barrier can be opened via a card reader, keypad, telephone entry system, radio, photo eyes, or remotely through a guard station. Choosing which of these opening systems depends on what type of environment the vehicle barrier gate arm will be used in. For private access to a condo complex, maybe a card reader or keypad would be best. For other applications, such as a toll booth or parking garage, maybe a photo eye or remote access through a guard kiosk would work best. Exit barrier gate arms usually work on photo eyes in order to open the gate arm since the vehicle usually has already gone through the requirements to get into the secure area.

Barrier gate arm openers can range from a boom length of 10 ft. all the way up to 26 ft.. Having this wide range of arm lengths allows a number of different architectural designs to be used.
