Boom Barriers

Automatic barrier offers efficient security at the exit and the entry points of factories, office complexes, corporate houses, residential Buildings, parking lots, toll tax plazas or any road - way entry where medium to heavy traffic is expected. Automatic barrier are used to effectively regulate pedestrian and vehicular traffic. It is used- to be able to manage security better. They are made of a motor body and control unit, protected by a case with different finishes, for applications in critical environment conditions, like heavy traffic areas. There are motorizations powered by 230 V and by 24 Vdc, which ensure high performances and safety, making them ideal for the automation of private and public car parks which are subject to frequent vehicle transit during the day. The choice of the model of automatic barrier gates depends on the width of the entrance and the type of use. Features:

  • Designed for heavy-duty operation
  • The boom arms of different length allow traffic barriers to meet any particular requirement of private areas and commercial or industrial companies.
  • Several versions of automatic barrier are available such as hydraulic & electromechanical.

Turnstiles were originally used, like other forms of stile, to allow human beings to pass while keeping sheep or other livestock penned in. The use of turnstiles in most modern applications has been credited to Clarence Saunders, who used them in his first Piggly Wiggly store.

Turnstiles often use ratchet mechanisms to allow the rotation of the stile in one direction allowing ingress but preventing rotation in the other direction. They are often designed to operate only after a payment has been made, usually by inserting a coin or token in a slot; or by swiping, or inserting, a paper ticket or electronically encoded card.

Turnstiles are often used for counting the numbers of people passing through a gate, even where payment is not involved. They are used extensively in this manner in amusement parks, in order to keep track of how many people enter and exit the park and ride each ride. The first major use of turnstiles at a sporting venue was at Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland.

Types of turnstiles

  • Waist-height

    A turnstile used in fairs, attractions, and arenas. The user inserts a ticket or pass into the slot, from which a barcode is read; if access is to be granted, a sensor determines the speed with which the user passes through, and sets the electric motor to turn the turnstile at the corresponding speed. Sometimes also referred to as "half-height" turnstiles, this fixed arm style has traditionally been the most popular type of turnstile. There are many variations of this style available, including one which is designed to be accompanied by a matching ticket box, and one with a ticket box built in. Some styles are designed to allow entry only after a payment (actual coins and tokens) are inserted,[1] while others allow access after a valid barcode is electronically read. A disadvantage to this type is people can "jump the turnstile"; as happens commonly on the Moscow Metroand other mass transport systems in Russia.

  • Drop Arm Optical

    The drop arm optical turnstile is a combination of the security of a tripod or barrier turnstile and a fully optical turnstile. The lanes can have either single or double arms. When access is granted the arms drop into recesses in the cabinet. Once the arm/s drop out of the way, the turnstile functions as a fully optical turnstile.

  • Optical

    Optical turnstiles are an alternative to the traditional "arm"-style turnstile and are increasingly used in locations where a physical barrier is deemed unnecessary or unaesthetic. Optical turnstiles generally use an infrared beam to count patrons and recognize anyone attempting to enter a site without a valid entry pass.

  • Full-height turnstiles

    The full-height turnstile, is a larger version of the turnstile, commonly 7-foot (2.1 m) high, similar in operation to a revolving door, which eliminates the possibility (inherent in the waist-high style) of anyone jumping over the turnstile. It is also known as an "iron maiden", after the torture device of the same name, or "high-wheel".[2] It is sometimes called a "Rotogate", especially in Chicago, where it is used at unstaffed exits of Chicago 'L' stations, and is also used at many New York City Subway stations. In Europe, however, "Rotogate" refers to a different kind of gate that is not a turnstile.

    There are two types of full height turnstiles, High Entrance/Exit Turnstile (HEET) and Exit-Only. The difference between them is that HEET turnstiles can rotate in both directions thus allowing two-way traffic, while exit-only turnstiles can only rotate in one direction thus allowing one-way traffic. Exit-only turnstiles are commonly used in mass transit stations to allow passengers to exit the system without interfering with those entering.Thus Turnstile entry is solution for stadiums and all recreational facilities which offers optimal protection against unauthorized access

Road Blockers

Road Blockers and Rising Kerbs are designed to offer an impact-resistant barrier to vehicle access and are well suited to ‘High Security’ sites. Such installations may range from car parks through to anti-terrorist protection of defence sites. Whether the requirement is for a simple, low cost rising kerb for relatively low volume usage or a heavy-duty, anti-terrorist PAS 68 rated HVM (Hostile Vehicle Mitigation) roadblocker for frequent operation, Frontier Pitts will supply a system designed to meet the individual sites exact needs.

  • The Security Height Road Blockers has lift height options of 353mm & 533mm, with widths up to 5m.
  • Road Blockers provide higher levels of security with built in stopping power, and are used extensively for premises such as banks, embassies, bullion depots, cargo parks, ports and lorry parks.
  • 100% duty rating - designed for continuous and frequent use. Power is supplied from a three phase 400V power supply as standard.
  • The Road Blocker can be interfaced to any access control systems. Traffic Light System included as standard. It is recommended that the Road Blocker's hydraulic control cabinet is installed within 10metres of the blocker.


If your premises are worth securing, it’s worth looking into the Under Vehicle Surveillance System (UVSS). UVSS solution is designed to scan, monitor, and digitally record crisp, clear digital video images of the entire width of a vehicle’s undersides—all with one permanent or portable system.

Careful integration of components makes the UVSS system a cost-effective and convenient solution for checking passenger vehicles, vans, buses, semi tractor truck and trailers, and more. It’s an ideal solution for governmental, military, corporate, and transportation facilities—wherever complete vehicle monitoring is required.

Advanced digital camera imaging and LED illumination provide clear, high-resolution video of the vehicle’s underside to help detect attached packages, explosives, and other objects.

For monitoring, images are processed by the first Digital Video Recorder (DVR) capable of recording 4-channels simultaneously and then displaying moving images in quad screen format. The UVSS DVR delivers the full picture of a vehicle’s entire width for a fraction of the cost of less capable systems.

Automatic Bollards

Retractable bollards systems offer you the ability to block off parts of your property at any time you desire, without the need for removal of the bollard. Our retractable system allows you to choose when you want to raise your barriers, while allowing you to store the bollard underground right where you need it! These bollards are easily secured with a lid that locks over the canister to prevent theft and to ensure no one tampers with them.

Our most economical choice for retractable bollard systems is the manual lift system. This bollard stands 36” above the ground when fully extended, and weighs from 28 to 86 pounds depending on the diameter of the bollard. While providing ease of access by always being in the location you need them, they do require manual raising and lowering for each use.

For a heavier, more durable retractable bollard, our manual assisted lift system is the perfect choice. These bollards have a built in pneumatic system that assists the operator in raising the bollard into position. Because of this, these bollards are more heavy duty than a simple manual lift retractable bollard. These work well along sidewalks and parking lots you need to cordon off on a regular basis.

Our automatic lift system employs a pneumatic lifting system that is designed to be used on a regular basis. Parking garages, private communities, and even your private residence can benefit from this type of system. The pneumatic lift is engaged to raise and lower the bollard at the push of a button.

If you have an area that you wish to divide, but plan on allowing occasional access to, then a retractable bollard system is the perfect solution for you. Affordable, durable and available in several different styles, these systems are not only effective, but also aesthetically pleasing.

Tire Killers

Tire killer barricades are a simple to install highly secure vehicle control barrier, ideally suited for approach entrances to banks, military installations, airports, docks, cash collection depots, government offices etc.

Tire killers teeth retract below ground level when a signal is received from the push button or integrated access control unit providing safe access for authorized vehicles. When the vehicle has passed, the tire killers teeth return to the active position, ensuring total protection from unauthorized vehicle intrusion.

Tire killer barricades may be used with any type of access control system.

We recommend that tire killer barricades are used in conjunction with a drop arm gate or barrier and an underground inductive detector loop to act as a safety device to prevent the tire killer barricade operating when an authorized vehicle is stationary over the teeth.

The tire killer barricade comes with a push-button control as standard, however it can be customized to interface with a wide range of access control equipment to suit specific customer requirements. Available configurations include (but are not limited to) inductive loop systems, card readers, communication equipment and manned guard panic systems can be accommodated.

Where the Tire Killer Barricade control point is remote from the installation, we strongly recommend the fitting of a recordable CCTV system, traffic lights and safety inductive loop systems.

LED Lights

The development of LED technology by has produced a range of LED luminaires that perform to the highest levels that we can extract from technology. There are a number of core components that must be of the highest available quality to conform to our best practices.

IR motion sensors

An individual PIR sensor detects changes in the amount of infrared radiation impinging upon it, which varies depending on the temperature and surface characteristics of the objects in front of the sensor. When an object, such as a human, passes in front of the background, such as a wall, the temperature at that point in the sensor's field of view will rise from room temperature to body temperature, and then back again. The sensor converts the resulting change in the incoming infrared radiation into a change in the output voltage, and this triggers the detection. Objects of similar temperature but different surface characteristics may also have a different infrared emission pattern, and thus moving them with respect to the background may trigger the detector as well.

PIRs come in many configurations for a wide variety of applications. The most common models have numerous Fresnel lenses or mirror segments, an effective range of about ten meters (thirty feet), and a field of view less than 180 degrees. Models with wider fields of view, including 360 degrees, are available—typically designed to mount on a ceiling. Some larger PIRs are made with single segment mirrors and can sense changes in infrared energy over one hundred feet away from the PIR. There are also PIRs designed with reversible orientation mirrors which allow either broad coverage (110° wide) or very narrow "curtain" coverage, or with individually selectable segments to "shape" the coverage.

Intrusion detectors

An Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is a network security technology originally built for detecting vulnerability exploits against a target application or computer. Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) extended IDS solutions by adding the ability to block threats in addition to detecting them and has become the dominant deployment option. This article will elaborate on the configuration and functions.

An IDS needs only to detect threats and as such is placed out-of-band on the network infrastructure, meaning that it is not in the true real-time communication path between the sender and receiver of information. Rather, IDS solutions will often take advantage of a TAP or SPAN port to analyze a copy of the inline traffic stream (and thus ensuring that IDS does not impact inline network performance).

IDS was originally developed this way because at the time the depth of analysis required for intrusion detection could not be performed at a speed that could keep pace with components on the direct communications path of the network infrastructure.

As explained, the IDS is also a listen-only device. The IDS monitors traffic and reports its results to an administrator, but cannot automatically take action to prevent a detected exploit from taking over the system. Attackers are capable of exploiting vulnerabilities very quickly once they enter the network, rendering the IDS an inadequate deployment for prevention device.

Electronic/ Magnetic access control system

Access control systems allow companies to determine who can go where and when. An audit trail shows the details of who passed through your access control entry and exit devices. Events recorded to a head end computer may be linked to video, paging, or alarm functions. By combining software and hardware, your system can be controlled, queried, or programmed from anywhere on your network or via a secure web browser.

Our access control systems provide more than just door control. They give you a complete picture of each employees activity by days, weeks, and the times they passed through any access controlled door in your facility. Your records will show whether they passed through during your regular working hours or off hours. Our access systems are based on time tested, user friendly software and allow for monitoring and control in remote sites throughout your existing network.

A typical system has four basic components:

  • Software or WEB interface
  • Door control modules
  • Locking devices, door position sensors, Rex's (request to exit sensors), and card readers
  • Cards and card readers

"One Card Technology" is the ability to combine independent systems onto one card. Multiple tasks like magnetic strips for food plans, proximity for door access, bar codes for library use, smart chips for vending account deduction and photo ID's can all be accomplished on one single card. All of our systems work to increase security and improve controls.

With the addition of a badge printer, access cards may be printed on site with multiple custom designs. Employees are easily identified, while visitors or intruders are easily noticed. No matter the size of your location, you may choose to use our ID badging services which will provide you with all your badging needs without the internal complications and costs of developing badges. We offer a full line of access control solutions, from securing a few doors to full enterprise system, managing a single facility or multiple facilities locally, nationally or globally. We combine a variety of access control technologies together into a fully functional access control system that manages your individual risks and needs.

Explosive detectors

Explosives remain the weapon of choice for terrorists around the world. Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) are a threat from international terrorist organizations and local, home-grown terrorists as well. Sadly, Home Made Explosives (HMEs) and IEDs have become a fact of modern life. Military, law enforcement and intelligence personnel have a dual-role: uncovering the bomb networks and systems before the bombers do harm, and investigating an incident after it occurs. In many cases, detecting just a trace of explosive material can make all the difference.
