Boom barrier gates are the automatic gates that you get to commonly see at hotels malls and residential-commercial building/complexes. The main reason of using this gate system is security. It is one of the most cost-effective and commonly used methods of controlling the entry of vehicles to a place that is generally a public place. Cars usually are required to stop at the barriers before they are scanned by the security team of the place and then allowed or denied entry depending on several safety-related aspects. Besides security, the boom barrier gates also help in controlling traffic like a toll booth were the toll collector opens the boom bar only after the vehicle owner pays for the toll. There are different types of boom barriers that are made to work effectively at commercial and residential areas and are priced accordingly. Of all the types, the electro-mechanical boom barriers are the most seen.
The boom barrier gates are operated via four mechanism – through Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), push button, remote control and loop detectors.
What is the hydraulic bollard system?
The hydraulic bollard system is another device or mechanism of regulating security at a high security building/complex. These bollards are used at places which are high-security zones and where vehicular movement needs to be monitored and regulated thoroughly. Generally, the bollards are installed as a group unit. The bollards move up and down hydraulically or pneumatically and have electronics systems in-built that help the bollards operate with ease and smoothness. The best of the systems is equipped with superior-edge technology and strength that help the bollards work against ramming with effectiveness. Also, speed at which the bollards get raised to their full position is an important criterion that commercial buyers need to check while ordering. The faster the bollards rise, the better they can handle and manage contingencies and higher volumes of traffic.
