Just last week I discussed a turnkey installation ECI provided for the Ferrara Candy Company earlier this year. Prior to our installation of the barrier gates (shown above) there were a pair of swing gates leading into this location. Those swing gates are shown below to the left.
The swing gates remained locked and closed until something was needed to be delivered to or removed from the facility. Then someone had to manually unlock and open the gates and then close and re-lock them when the operation was completed.
ECI provided an almost complete turnkey installation. Equipment consisted of two automatic barrier gates spanning the entry and exit lanes, three vehicle detector loops, the four protective bollards, the black gooseneck mounting pole, concrete island, all electrical conduit and wiring including connections, building wall penetrations, concrete work, coring, etc. We did wire in an access reader from their vendor so existing cards and software could be used.
Ferrara Candy Company boasts about being the “Undisputed leader in sweet snacking” and is the home of 27 candy and six cookie brands most of which you easily recognize.
