The DROP ARM GATE (DAG) combines the utility of a traditional traffic control gate with the security of a crash rated barrier to deter, deny and delay threats as they occur. The DAG can secure multiple lanes of traffic or wide checkpoints, up to 24 feet, providing security, access, and safety for government, utility, energy, manufacturing, industrial, or commercial properties
The unique, fully-vertical position (90° up) allows for unobstructed use of the roadway, safe positioning of the arm, and minimal setback from the roadway opening. The DAG includes a positive locking device for securing the arm in the down position. The DAG’s passive safety latching mechanism engages on vehicle impact. The DAG is available in manual and operated models. The operated DAG is entirely electro-mechanical, making it ideal for sites where hydraulic fluids are prohibited. Counterweights can be adjusted in manual operation to require minimal force for raising and lowering.
Boasting a duty cycle of 120 cycles per hour, the electro-mechanical DAG allows for fast processing of vehicles at controlled access points. It features a warning horn, flashing light, edge sensor, and photoelectric sensor in accordance with UL 325 standards. Operated models include control panel, controls, and electro-mechanical operator; and is preconfigured for easy integration of additional access control and safety devices as well as integration of barrier command and control from multiple control locations.
Offering crash-rated protection up to 20,000 lbs at 50 mph, the DAG’s modular option fits your temporary or portable security needs. A DAG with a concrete barrier requires no excavation, allowing you to place them at virtually any location.
Compact Footprints with Clearance Constraints where vertical clearance is available but lateral, forward and rear clearances are limited
Footprints with Underground Obstructions minimal excavation of roadway; foundation excavation outside of roadway
Busy Vehicle Entrances or Sally-Ports with Medium to High Traffic Volume up to 120 duty cycles per hour; low noise thresholds
