Solar Powered Barriers

The Auto Mate Systems Solar Powered barrier is a cost effective and environmentally friendly way of managing the traffic and vehicles to a designated area of your property or business.  The Solar Powered barrier is available with a barrier boom length of up to 5 metres and with various options for access control.

The barrier houses a low voltage DC motor and will still work during a power outage, due to its battery power backup.  As with all our barriers, the Solar Powered barrier will be installed with all the relevant safety features and can come with optional safety photo cells for increased protection.

The solar panels can also run the ancillary devices such as barrier timers and the proximity access control system, along with safety devices including induction loops and safety edges.

The solar powered barrier system also requires no digging for cabling or a power supply due to its solar panel supply, as well as other obvious benefits such as no energy running costs or potential, unexpected bills from high usage periods.

Installation locations for this type of barrier vary hugely, due to the fact that they do not require a mains power supply.  Locations include secluded and remote countryside car parks in the Highlands of Scotland, roads in remote forest locations and businesses that struggle to locate a mains power supply in a location near to where the barrier would be installed.

As mentioned above, and, as with all Auto Mate Systems Ltd barriers, there are a number of different types of access control to choose from, including radio receivers/fobs and digital keypads.
