​The SWING ARM GATE (SAG) features a structural steel beam that opens horizontally for crash rated vehicle security. Great for controlled access points with low to medium vehicle traffic, the manually operated SAG can secure multiple lanes of traffic or wide checkpoints up to 36 feet, or up to 32 feet with the electro-mechanical operated SAG. For longer spans or split traffic situations two single gates can be combined with a removable or fixed center receiver superpost.

The unique 90º pivot assembly allows for unobstructed use of the roadway, safe positioning of the arm, and minimal setback from the roadway opening. The optional 180º pivot allows for the open arm to be secured without obstructing the surrounding area.


The SAG can be installed across existing roadways with no roadway excavation. It only requires  excavation outside the roadway opening, easily avoiding underground utilities and other obstructions. The optional Concrete Barrier and Surface Mounted versions require no excavation. In manual operation, the hinges, low friction bearings, and overall balance of the beam require minimal force for opening and closing. The catching mechanism is passive - no operator action is required to catch the beam and provide crash protection. Positive locking mechanisms can be provided that allow the SAG to be locked in the closed or open positions.


The SAG is available in manual and operated models. The operated SAG is entirely electro-mechanical, making it ideal for sites where hydraulic fluids are prohibited. It includes a warning horn, flashing light,  inherent entrapment sensing and photoelectric sensor in accordance with UL 325 standards. Operated models include control panel, controls, and electro-mechanical operator.
