Boom barrier gates are effective and cost-efficient solutions that improve security by controlling traffic in and out of your facility. Gone are the days when boom barriers were operated by a counterweight and locked with ropes or clips. Today, they are smart automated barriers that detect entry, record licence plates, and allow biometric and touchless access control to a facility with no human operator required. They secure narrow parking and building entrances to wider paths like toll gates and industrial entry points.

However, we are here to talk specifically about two of the best barrier gates from Magnetic, a FAAC Group Subsidiary – Magnetic Access and Magnetic Access Pro.

Why install boom barriers at your facility

Adding boom barriers to your access control installation mix is the best way to manage parking areas and vehicle entry points. They are a great solution for properties with limited parking spaces, especially the ones without security guards that attract a lot of unauthorised vehicles.

The boom barrier is an efficient solution that eliminates the need to man the entry points and saves costs. Moreover, barrier gates are made to last, they are highly durable and withstand tough weather conditions, as well as require low maintenance. One of the greatest advantages is that boom barriers require less space than a swing-open gate.
