Solar-powered gate openers are rising in popularity because of innovations in solar technology which have significantly improved their reliability. The cost of solar panels has also come down considerably over the past few years. That is why many consumers are seriously considering them. However, not everyone might think that they are an ideal solution.
Manual and automatic gates, including turnstiles and boom barriers, offer many benefits to passengers and staff of public transport systems, from bus and ferry terminals, to airports and train stations. They not only improve safety and security by adding an extra layer of protection for crowd control and crime prevention, but these manual and automatic security gates ensure fast and efficient flow of traffic by facilitating the movement of passengers.
Vehicle security and customer safety are key issues for car park operators. Adopting electronic systems is making reliance on a few security personnel and manual collection of payments for busy car parks a thing of the past. Sophisticated boom gate technologies are facilitating the management and recording of vehicle movement in, out and around parking facilities.
