BOOMGATES

Boom gates are often paired either end to end, or offset, appropriately to block traffic in both directions. Some boom gates also have a second arm, which pivots on links that allow the second arm to hang 300 to 400 mm below the upper arm, when it descends into the horizontal position. This is done to increase approach visibility. A boom barrier, also known as a boom gate, is a bar, or pole pivoted to allow the boom to block vehicle access through a controlled point. Typically the tip of a boom gate rises in a vertical arc to a near vertical position. Boom gates are counterweighted, so the pole is easily tipped.

Boom gates are often paired either end to end, or offset, appropriately to block traffic in both directions. Some boom gates also have a second arm, which pivots on links that allow the second arm to hang 300 to 400 mm below the upper arm, when it descends into the horizontal position. This is done to increase approach visibility.

Boom gates are typically found at level crossings, drawbridges, parking facilities, checkpoints and entrances to restricted areas. Boom gates, or Boom barriers are often used in conjunction with spike barriers , road blockers, gates and bollards .

The barrier is equipped with a torque motor which lifts the boom arm through a sinusoidal level system, which allows the boom arm to be locked in both the up or down positions. The barrier has the ability to handle a high flow of traffic. The barrier is equipped with a torque motor which lifts the boom arm through a sinusoidal level system, which allows the boom arm to be locked in both the up or down positions. All the electronic equipment is manufactured to ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 9002 standards.

The boom arm lifts up to 85º in the event of a power failure.

Up to 4 tension springs can be used for counter balancing. Left and right hand barriers are available with round or octagonal boom arms. The boom arm can also be equipped with a curtain. The barrier requires minimum maintenance.

Specifications

• The boom arm is manufactured in the lengths of 3m, 4.5m & 6m long aluminium tubing, powder coated in white with red reflective tape.
• The boom arm has a unique break away mechanism.
• The boom arm is joined to the boom adaptor with 2 nylon nuts, which will sheer in case of accidental collision with the boom arm.
• The boom arm stays attached to the barrier but will swing away from traffic flow. This prevents damage to the barrier & boom arm.
• Jack Knife kits are available for height restricted areas, up to 4.5m boom arms.
• Left & right hand boom arm configurations are available.
• Two rubber buffers are used for boom dampening on the down position to eliminate bouncing.
