Last week I wrote to you about “Single Access Lane Made Reversible With New Barrier Gates”. This was a follow up on an article “New Automatic Barrier Gates For Multi-Level Parking Garage”. Today I want to share some information about the new access equipment we installed inside the garage at the reversible lane I previously described.
Shown above is a close-up view of the access equipment for this reversible lane which was previously single lane access only. Below is an image of the empty wall prior to the conversion of the lane.
As you can see, we added a new automatic barrier gate with an articulating arm to accommodate the low ceiling height in the parking garage. Access control readers are mounted on the black gooseneck pedestal just inside the garage along with an intercom. Two vehicle detector loops were cut into the pavement, installed and hooked up to the gate operator. Then the pavement was resealed.
The electric signs indicate the direction of traffic flow to the drivers at the time. Here the green arrow on the front of the building indicates the lane is open for access. The red ‘X’ shown on the sign inside the garage warns drivers that the lane is closed for egress. When the flow of traffic is reversed, the sign indications are changed to reflect the condition.
We also installed the yellow protective bollards. These protect the sensitive equipment from damage due to low-speed collisions.
Magnetic provided the Parking Pro automatic barrier gate. Their models can control lanes up to 12 feet wide and are available in numerous colors. Options include breakaway flanges, illuminated barrier arms, battery backup, heaters and more.
