One way to keep unauthorized people out is to install a barrier. A great solution for closing locations to traffic temporarily or for a longer period of time. This can be controlled manually, but also automatically. What are the pros and cons of this? Manual barriers vs. automatic barriers.
At Geran Access Products BV we works with Turnstar brand barriers and Fadini brand barriers. The ideal way to close off construction sites, industrial areas, shopping areas, storage areas and parking garages. Basically they can be placed in any location. The levers have a round or octagonal shape, are powder coated and lengths are available from 2.5 meters to 6 meters. Our Velocity barriers are equippd with LED lights as standard, to ensure better visibility at night. For the Bayt barriers, this is optional. All barriers can be mounted on the left or right.
The great advantage of manual barriers is that they do not need to be connected to an electrical system. This means that they can be used flexibly and are especially useful for temporary use. For example, in temporary road closures or at an event, where a traffic controller is necessary. As the period of use of the barrier increases, it is more efficient and economical to have an automatic barrier installed.
There are also conceivable places where an automatic barrier is preferred. Automatic barriers must be connected to electricity. Next, you can choose between mechanical or hydraulic drive. A major advantage of site monitoring with automatic barriers is that they can operate independently and unmanned. Our barriers can communicate with any access control system.
