Here’s your guide to choosing the right FAAC barrier and a glance into the main components plus accessories.

(Take a look at our generic but detailed Gate Barrier Buyer’s Guide here)

Application Scenario

Selecting a barrier gate for your facility depends on many factors, and the most important of all is to decide the application – commercial or residential or industrial. Residential units usually require a moderate number of opening and closing cycles per day and are only busy during the peak hours in the morning and evenings.

FAAC usually categorises its boom barriers in terms of application, commercial or industrial barriers warrants 100% duty cycle and residential needs up to 70% duty cycles.

It is very important to decide the purpose and frequency of use required before you choose FAAC gate barriers. Once you decide the purpose of use, you can pick a FAAC boom barrier model and required beam length, and the type of power unit you are going to deploy.

Installation area

Installation area or environment decides many aspects of barrier gates, for underground parking areas you need foldable or short arm barriers that operate faster. Look for arm articulation options for barrier arms if you are installing gates to parking spaces with limited overhead space or low ceiling underground parking lot.

Barrier Operator

Barrier operator is the engine that runs an automatic gate barrier. FAAC automatic gate operators come in a wide range of options that are suitable for both traffic access and parking solutions.

FAAC barrier operators manage beam lengths from 2 meters up to 8.3 meters and offer opening speed ranging from 1.5 seconds.

FAAC operators are powered by either electromechanical or hydraulic motors and are suitable for controlling residential, commercial and industrial applications at small and medium private areas or much larger industrial areas. Barriers usually come with battery back up in case of power loss.

In essence, there is a FAAC vehicle barrier operator for every use case that you may come across.

FAAC B680H and B614 – What are the major differences?

Both B680H and B614 barriers are high-performance boom barriers offering easy installation and enable the integration of accessories for RFID reading or automatic vehicle detection and other accessories.

The major difference between these barriers is that – B680H is an automatic hydraulic motor operated unit while B614 is operated with a 24V electromechanical motor. The 680H hydraulic barrier is heavy duty and can lift barrier beams of up to 8m, which makes it an ideal solution for industrial sites and high-security areas. The B614 lifts beam up to 5m.

The B680H hybrid hydraulic barrier comes with an everlasting spring that offers two million cycles while B614 is designed to offer up to one million operating cycles. According to FAAC, B680H is around 20 to 30 per cent costlier than B614 barrier.
