New Automatic Barrier Installation

Colworth Science Park in Bedfordshire

Our ADC Engineers Gary Charnock and Gary Bird were recently at Colworth Science Park in Bedfordshire to replace and install two new DEA Traffic Barriers. We also replaced three induction loops, which were tested by our Engineers for correct operation and made sure they were left in working order.

Induction Loops are used in the control of the barrier; these loops are used to detect the presence of metal objects (i.e. cars) within the designated control areas assigned for the automatic installation.  When an object is detected and the signal is sent to the connected automatic control system, the systems then responds according to how it has been configured. These can operate the system independently or alongside other controls such as the remote control.

Benefits of an Automatic Barrier.

Automatic barrier systems are ideal at allowing remote control of traffic, especially when the road traffic usage is high. If you need to restrict the numbers of slow-moving cars and goods vehicles passing through an access point to a major road, then a barrier is the perfect product to allow a few vehicles to proceed through each time.

Automatic traffic barriers are designed to serve a simple, yet very important function, which is basically to control and regulate the amount of vehicles entering and leaving, various properties. If your business sees a lot of traffic, or if you’re simply looking to increase the security in, and around, your property, having automatic traffic barriers installed could be exactly what you need.
