Boom barriers are the automatic control units were installed for high security as well as efficient and smooth traffic control in roadways and also in public places. They provide security at the entry/exit points of factories, office complexes, parking lots, shopping malls, railway crossing, toll plaza, etc. With boom barrier, unauthorized access becomes is prevented.
The boom barriers are operated through push buttons, remote control, RFID tags & readers and Loop detectors. They are made up of a barrier arm which is pivoted at the fixed point. It has an AC motor, gearbox, locking plunger and a balancing spring. The AC motor is strong and powerful to lift up the installed barrier arm, it moves in the vertical direction. By giving power supply to the motor, the motor rotates the gearbox (through a clutch) which in turn moves the counterbalance channels from Horizontal (closed) to vertical (Open) positions & vice versa.
The gearbox is also used for high heat-radiating with high carrying ability. The balancing spring holds the barrier arm from not falling low. The locking plunger enters the locking device smoothly and freely. The boom barriers range from 4m – 6m, the operating temperature ranges from -40 to +50o C, this allows to use them in different climatic zones and the operating voltage ranges from 180 to 240 V.
Boom barriers are reliable, improve security and control the flow of traffic, provide instant privacy from entering of unauthorized persons. They are very durable and made to last. They’re also built to withstand a fair amount of wear and tear, and are low maintenance and efficient in utilizing space.
