Tracked Security “Taxi Way” Sliding Gates

Security Tracked Sliding Gates are designed to run on a track installed in the roadway and are able to secure wide apertures. The trackwork is cast into the concrete foundation which is poured in two stages. The track is bolted down to the first pour concrete and the second pour brings the level up to finished road level. The track is normally 5mm below finished road level.

The Sliding Gate is 100% duty rated – designed for continuous & frequent use. Power is supplied from a single phase 230V supply.

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.

Traffic Light System

Traffic Light systems are highly recommended to be installed with all road blocker and bollard systems to advise all users of its position. 100mm traffic light head can be pole or mounted on control cabinet

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.

Gate 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.

Pedestrian Guard Rail

A Pedestrian Guard Rail (fence panels) should be fitted around the runback area of the sliding gate. This is to prevent serious injury to a person should they stray into that area whilst the gate is operating.

Gate Infill

Weldmesh should be clipped to the gates infill bars infill to prevent pedestrians putting their limbs through.
Other infills include palisade pales, sheet and wood infills. For more information please Security Gate Infills page

Sounder

Sounders/Audible Alarms provide an audible warning that the automatic equipment is in operation.

Flashing Beacon

Flashing Beacons provide a visual warning that the automatic equipment is in operation.
