Vehicle Access Control Systems
DEFINE THREAT AND RISK LEVEL
Defining the threat and risk level is intrinsic to the design of vehicular Access Control. For example, an airport might require might require Hostile Vehicle Mitigation to counter a terrorist threat against the terminal building but may only need rising arm barriers in other areas.
Apart from the threat level you will need to consider:
- Is the area supervised?
- If not does the barrier close quickly enough to prevent tailgating?
- How often will the barrier be opened or closed and what duty cycle is required?
- Could the barrier be subject to vandalism or forced entry attempts?
- Does the barrier just need to control vehicles or will it also prevent pedestrian access?
We offer a full range of measures for commercial use, together with the expertise to find the most appropriate solution for your needs. These range from rising arm barriers to PAS:68 crash tested road.
blockers, high duty cycle rising arm barriers for car parking through to full height speed gates to rising bollards.
HOW WILL YOUR VEHICLE ACCESS MEASURES BE CONTROLLED
Any gate or barrier can be operated locally or remotely with a range of solutions from long-range vehicle access tags to ANPR, IP intercom systems or a graphical user interface.
With any mechanical moving surface safety is a key consideration. Our safety measures include inductive loops, photocells, pressure sensors and resistance-sensing motors.
We design our vehicle control measures to link into a networked Access Control system, with long range vehicle tags, Intercom Systems, ANPR and even Smart Card systems.
