Once the gate and supporting posts are secured into position, the motors can be installed, a free exit loop is installed under the road surface, secure side.
An intercom was installed that calls from the panels at the gate to the scheme managers BT DECT phone, this was chosen as the manager often is away from the their desk, however carrying the DECT phone with them allowed them to communicate with the visitors wherever they were in the complex, opening the gate was achieved by pressing 2 digits in a pre defined order using the DECT's keypad.
Safety sensors were installed to protect users from the gate opening/closing onto them, finger guards were added to the hinge sides to avoid any trappings.
We also installed a Uninteruptible Power Supply (UPS), this ensured the gate would fail open in event of mains failure. Mains supply was derived from a building some 100mtrs away, this was supplied using steel wired armoured cable, intercom cables were drawn into newly installed steel galvanised conduits.
Once the gate was fully operational, a new Road surface was added to complete the project and provide a neat, tidy finish.
