Why Barriers?

Automatic Barriers play an essential role in regulating and restricting the vehicle access and egress so their reliability is key. Barriers are often the visitors first contact with a company so appearance is also important. Whether the requirement is for a simple, low cost barrier for relatively low volume usage or a heavy-duty barrier for frequent operation, Frontier Pitts will supply a system designed to meet the sites exact needs. All barriers operate through a 90 degree movement. There are various options to consider when specifying your automatic barrier:-

1. Which product range?

  • IWA 14 & PAS 68 Impact Tested HVM Anti Terra range
  • or

  • Automatic Barriers or Manual Barriers (Means of Operation)

2. Width of road that requires barrier

3. Skirt, accessory and safety requirements

4. Conditions on site (weather, usage, etc)
