An automatic gate barrier is a physical access control device used to restrict vehicular access to a designated area, such as a parking lot or a gated community. It typically consists of a sturdy metal arm that can be raised and lowered to allow or deny access to the area.
The gate barrier is usually powered by an electric motor that can be activated by various means, including a remote control, an access card, a keypad, or a proximity sensor. The gate barrier can also be equipped with safety features, such as sensors that detect obstacles and prevent the arm from closing on a vehicle or a person.
Automatic gate barriers are widely used in various settings, including commercial and residential properties, public parking lots, airports, and industrial facilities. They provide an effective and convenient way to control access to restricted areas, enhance security, and manage traffic flow.
