Warning and information signs are recommended to be installed with all automatic equipment to advise users of its operation

Hinged Gate Warning Sign

Indicates and warns users of the swing of a hinged gate during opening and closing

Traffic Light System

Traffic Light systems can be installed with Automatic Gate 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.

Automatic Hinged Gates

For Automatic Gates, safety accessories and devices, please view the Actuator product page.

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
