A1 Gates & Securities Ltd. specialise in the complete installation of the entire URBACO range - the ideal solution for access control of a public or private street for vehicular traffic.

The Automatic Rising Bollard sinks into the ground in less than 3 seconds (adjustable) by means of a remote control device ), thus clearing the way for traffic and rises back once the vehicle has passed through.

Urbaco Automatic Rising Bollards

This system is very easy to use and its applications are varied. It enables not only access control to a private housing estate, company grounds or any street, but also gives an answer to urban needs in terms of remote on-line technical centralised supervision.

In case of power outage, the bollard goes down by gravity. As an option, negative security is available, locking the bollard upwards even in a power outage. This is especially useful for high security situations.

Limit switch captors detect the bollard status - up, down or in motion - to activate optional peripherals such as traffic lights, control logic etc. An optional internal antifreeze heater is also available enabling the bollards to be operated in areas of extreme cold.
