Even non-payment car parks benefit from automatic car park barriers. Automatic timing systems are set to lift within 4 seconds of triggering. This staggers the flow of traffic both into and out of the park.
There are several types of barriers. Each barrier fulfills a specific need. All can be customized for a variety of environments.
Commercial and High Traffic Automatic Barriers
Permanent car parks are prime locations for EB450 parking barriers These barriers are built to last. Mechanisms are encased in steel, yet they are easy for maintenance personnel to access.
These parking barriers have their own power system. Building and parking structure managers can integrate payment systems, identification systems and other measures into the barrier’s “parking logic” mechanism.
Other features found in car parking barrier models include:
- multi-level parking structures
- interior car parks
- exterior car parks
- high traffic areas
- narrow spaces
Industrial and High-Security Areas
These barriers do not require deep foundations. As a result, they can be used in a variety of areas and can be set in place rapidly. Stadium parking, special events and temporary high-security locations benefit from PAS 68 barriers of this type.
High-security barriers feature:
- Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM)
- Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) mitigation
These barriers can be used as stand-alone structures or can be integrated with a complete car parking system. Integration is useful for tracking personnel when exiting or entering a high-security area.
In addition, high-security barriers have their own hydraulic power packs. In the event of a power failure, manual pumps allow entry and exits.
Automatic car park barriers meet a range of specifications. Atex barriers suit large vehicles with high overhead. Construction sites and industrial areas benefit from these types of car park barriers.
Traffic Flow and Maintenance
Automatic barriers ease congestion and are a familiar sight for many car park users. Barriers like the AZN automatic have optional LED lights and reflective adornments. Car park users will easily see where to enter and where to exit.
In addition, automatic car park barriers have long lifespans, with an estimated 4 million arm lifts before any significant maintenance is required.
