Boom gates consist of a straight or articulated arm, which raises and lowers to provide access past the gate. A straight arm will require enough vertical space to match the length of the arm, while an articulated arm can be folded when raised and extended when lowered. This means an articulated arm often does not require the same amount of vertical space. A Boom Gate can be operated in numerous ways – including via key pass, button, remote, photo-electric beam or loop detectors located in the ground.
Boom gates are most effective at restricting vehicle access, but allowing pedestrians to move freely around them. For this reason they are commonly used in carparks. The articulated arm variation is especially common in underground carparks, where vertical space is often restricted.
Their design makes it possible for pedestrians to access the premises regardless of whether the boom gate is in the up or down position however. For situations where pedestrian access must also be controlled, boom gates are often used in conjunction with Roller Shutters.
