Auto Mate Systems Ltd can provide you with traffic barriers that are highly effective and flexible, making them both easy to see and easy to use. They can provide control for all types of vehicles as well as providing safety and security for pedestrian access within a restricted area. We can provide Traffic Barriers according to your precise requirements and will always make sure that they comply with safety laws and regulations.
You can choose your traffic barrier based on different factors:
- The kind of traffic you get – whether it is light vehicles like cars or two-wheelers or heavy vehicles like trucks and vans
- The nature of your premises – whether it is a public or private area, a residential area, a commercial development or a construction site
- The main purpose of the traffic barrier â€“ e.g. for controlling the flow of traffic or preventing unauthorized vehicles from entering secure areas.
Automatic traffic barriers are used for site access or factory entrances where the size and length of boom are greater than that required for car parking barriers. Auto Mate Systems Ltd provides a range of automatic traffic barriers, the most popular being the RIB Normal barrier, a 6/7 metre barrier.
The Normal Traffic barrier has a heavy duty 230 volt motor and gearbox suitable for entrances up to 6 meters wide. The boom of the Rib Normal barrier is large, 118mm x 80mm by up to 7150mm long. As the boom is so large the opening time can be up to 11 seconds, which is good for lorries but a little slow to prevent tail gaiting. In the event of a power failure the barrier can be easily raised using the supplied hand crank.
The Rib Normal automatic traffic barrier can be fitted with a bottom skirt to improve visibility and deter pedestrians ducking under the barrier boom. However the maximum length of the boom must not exceed 6 metres when a skirt is fitted. If the Rib Normal traffic barrier does not require a bottom skirt then the boom length can go up to 7 metres
When this automatic traffic barrier is used on factory entrances we would recommend that it is fitted with a raised stop sign so the driver can see that the boom is in the down position from his cab, which may be higher than the barrier boom.
Other names that can be used for a traffic barrier are: barrier gate, rising arm barrier, and rising barrier.
The ideal use of our automatic traffic barriers is where a factory entrance is unmanned. The use of a dual height post with card readers at both car height and lorry height are fitted with an auto close induction loop to safely close the barrier when the lorry has entered, thus giving automatic traffic management and control.
The traffic barriers from Auto Mate Systems are as cost effective to install as they are to maintain. They are held in place using strong materials, so minimising your maintenance charges. They can also be attractive in their aesthetic appearance and be resistant to the most corrosive of environments.
Traffic control barriers can also be used within a complex of private or public premises, no matter how large or small they are or what kind of sites they are. They have different pre-requisites that make them effective:
- Visual substantiality
