Depending on the nature of your business, you may have been searching for an effective way to control traffic. You’re not necessarily searching for high security measures to keep cars and vehicles from entering your property, but are searching for a way to ensure traffic moves smoothly, in addition to letting only authorized or paid users enter. A barrier gate is most likely your best option to keep traffic woes at bay, allowing only those with a card or access to enter. If you have been looking for barrier gate installation, service, and repair in Long Beach, look to Automated Gate Services, Inc. for all of your traffic control needs.
A barrier gate is also known as a boom arm gate. This boom arm lies parallel to the ground, and does not let traffic pass until the arm is lifted. The arm is usually lifted when the driver of a vehicle presses a button on a remote or kiosk, is granted entry by an attendant, or swipes or inserts a card programmed for that gate. The type of boom arm and hardware you choose is up to you, and will depend on the level of security and application you are needing it for. A bank may opt for a stronger boom arm than a parking lot, for example, but not necessarily. A boom arm is commonly used at parking garages and lots. If there is an attendant present, he or she can control traffic, so that the garage never has more cars in it above capacity. An attendant would also operate a boom arm to let drivers out as they swipe an authorized pass or pay a bill. This may be a good idea for your business if you have a popular parking lot and drivers must pay to park.
