Vehicle Detector Loops

Vehicle detector loops installed beneath the road surface to detect vehicles. This will prevent the automatic equipment from closing on a vehicle within the aperture. Safety induction loops cut into the road surface. This will prevent the gate from closing on a vehicle within the aperture.

Safety Photocells

Safety Photocells produce beams of light which cross the road way to monitor vehicle and pedestrian movement. If an object breaks this beam, the automatic equipment will stop & reverse. On gate installations, two pairs of photocells are usually fitted. Ultra Sonic Sensors are also available.

Barrier Safety Edge

Safety Edges are normally fitted to automatic gates. However they can also be installed beneath a barrier boom. Safety edges prevent the barrier lowering on a person or vehicle in the event it is activated. Safety edges are flexible strips which, if depressed, send a signal to the power source to stop.

Manual Hand pump

In the event of a power failure, a hand pump/release can be provided to enable the manual raising and lowering of the barrier.

High Security Cabinet

Provides high security protection to the control cabinet of Frontier Pitts PAS 68 Anti Terra product range. Special Security cabinets can be fitted and tested to BRE 1175 with 6 point security locking mechanism and fire resistance to DIN 4102. High security mauer key lock, Class A, ECBS/ENV 1300 approved, with similar rating to BS EN 1143-1 1997.

Terra Barrier Swivel Skirt

Skirts installed above and below the Terra Beam. As the barrier beam rises, the skirt folds towards the beam. Full height swivel skirts provide an extra visual deterrent.
