Barrier Signage

Warning and information signs installed on the barrier boom such as ‘STOP’ ‘NO EXIT’ and ‘NO ENTRY’

Pedestrian Warning Sign

Normally placed on the barrier cabinet. Warns pedestrian of the automatic barrier.

Fixed End Rest

Frontier Pitts recommends an end rest for barriers with booms over 4 metres. Fixed end rests are bolted to the ground and require a foundation base of 400mm SQ x 300mm deep.

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.
