Reliable Car Parking Barriers & Security Posts

security posts

Heavy duty motors and gear-boxes are standard fittings on Auto Mate’s barriers, giving them their outstanding ability to withstand thousands of operational cycles every day.

Vehicle “tail gating” is discouraged with the 3 metre long boom and its sub-3 second opening/closing cycle. Barriers with longer booms have slower operational speeds for safe operation.

Space permitting, the ideal set up includes 2 separate arms, one for site access and another for site exit. Such a set up provides really secure management of site vehicle movements.

Complementary fittings are also available to act as a deterrent to prevent people walking beneath the safety boom and / or increase their visibility including “skirts”, boom lights and STOP signs.
