Manual barriers vs. automatische slagbomen
One way to keep unauthorized persons out is by placing a barrier. Very suitable to close locations temporarily or for a longer period of time to traffic. This can be controlled manually, but also automated. What are the pros and cons of this? Manual gates vs. automatic barriers.
Barriers from Geran Access Products
Geran Access Products works with Turnstar brand barriers - the ideal way to close off construction sites, industrial areas, shopping areas, storage areas and car parks to vehicles, for example, but they can in principle be placed at any desired location. The levers have a round or octagonal shape, are powder coated and have a length of 2.5 to 6 metres. We can mount them either on the left or right in front of you.
The great advantage of hand operated barriers is that they do not need to be connected to an electrical system. This means that they can be used flexibly and are particularly useful for temporary use. For example, at temporary road closures or at an event where a traffic controller is required. As the service life of the barrier increases, it is more efficient and economical to have an automatic barrier installed.
There are also places imaginable where a automatic barrier is preferable. Automatic barriers must be connected to electricity. A major advantage of this way of terrain monitoring is that the barrier is equipped with sonar detection sensors, a self-contained access control system. Geran Access Products installs everything on site. With our programming knowledge we can communicate with any system for access control. No access control software yet? We can arrange this for you too!
In addition to barriers, there are several other types of (mobile) gates, such as access lanes, bill markers or tourniquets, each with its own unique advantages. See here for more information about our gateways.
