Slide Gate at OHare Impound Lot 1

Slide Gate at OHare Impound Lot 1

Last year ECI was called out to O’Hare Airport’s impound lot #1 in Chicago. We installed a Nice/HySecurity SlideDriverâ„¢ sliding gate operator at the location. The operator automatically opens and closes the security gate shown in the image above. The green rail operator is shown to the right on the concrete block and is seen close up below and to the left.

These sliding gate operators are both powerful and long-lasting. They can move gates weighing as much as 10 tons at high speeds up to three feet per second. They are constructed with Industrial grade components that ensure low maintenance.

We included all the necessary concrete and electrical work in the installation. Shown below at the upper left is some of the ‘during’ installation work which included excavation, electrical installation and connections, concrete pads and protective bollards. The trench work is not shown.

The same location is shown at the right after the installation was completed. A customer supplied card reader was installed on a tall gooseneck pedestal. The height accommodates the level of a tow truck driver’s window.

Dual photo-electric beams are shown at the lower left on a pole. They indicate when a truck (with or without an impounded vehicle) has cleared the entry so that the gate can automatically close behind.

Safety edge guards were also included on the gate as a safety factor. Vehicle detector loops are installed to open the gate when the tow truck or vehicle exits and then to close once the vehicle clears the gate.
