Automatic Traffic Barrier Use

  • Car parking barriers 
  • Secure commercial premises
  • Shopping centres
  • And much more!

How to Choose the Best Traffic Barrier for You 

When choosing the right traffic barrier for your site, there are several factors to take into consideration. 

For example, what type of vehicles and traffic currently pass through? Does the volume of traffic vary throughout the day? What are the busy, quiet periods? What types of vehicles pass through i.e., cars or motorcycles, or lorries and vans, etc.? 

You also need to consider the type of premises you’re working on. Is it public or private land, a residential or commercial area, or a new construction site, etc.? 

Taking into account all aspects and knowing your site allows us to provide you with the perfect traffic barrier for you. 

Why use an automated traffic barrier?

Do you need to control traffic flow safely, prevent unauthorized vehicles from accessing the site, stop unauthorized personnel from accessing restricted areas, etc.

Assessing your site and understanding what you need to keep people and property safe and secure is vital in deciding on the best and most suitable traffic barrier for you.

The team at Crucial Engineering Ltd would recommend that on all automatic traffic barriers used for entranceways, a raised stop sign is also fitted. This allows drivers to see the boom from their cab with ease when it is in the down (closed) position. This can be critical as the cabs in heavy vehicles such as trucks, and delivery vehicles can often be higher than the barriers boom.

 Traffic barriers are also referred to as:

  • Barrier gates
  • Rising arm barrier
  • Rising barrier

They’re also held in place using reliable and robust materials, minimizing maintenance and service charges, and providing an aesthetic appeal that is resistant to many corrosive environments. 

Most popular barriers

The most prevalent barrier within our range is that of the Digital Brushless Motor.

Offering the best in innovative technology. This particular barrier doesn’t have traditional relays and has built into its MOSFET quadrant system and control technology, a DSP microcontroller. This microcontroller represents a new generation of electronic cards that have been innovatively designed to safely handle every type of card and automatic movement through the barrier.

Brushless digital technology has allowed for speed and acceleration; all carried out with perfectly elegant movements.

Providing a constant force and torque at all points with the option of varying the speed depending on your requirements, you can manage these barriers while maintaining a high level of safety at all times.

With a motor that operates at low voltage, brushless barriers are extremely low on energy consumption and work well in environments with extremely demanding weather conditions and absorption levels.

The creation of the brushless motor has one main goal: To operate efficiently and effectively, regardless of how many operations the engine performs in a day. Due to its unique design, and because of this primary goal, the motor itself is always designed to stay cold or when it is working at its maximum capacity; it would at most reach the outside ambient temperature.

With automated barriers by Crucial Engineering, you don’t need to worry about power failures as with both internal and external batteries and the associated battery charging card used; your automated barrier systems will continue to work for a considerable time during power cuts.

Crucial Engineering offers the best automatic barrier solutions to suit all requirements, all at the most competitive prices.
