Design specification of the Automatic vehicle/Pedestrian gates

Do to the sensitive nature of the childrens home Mere UK we asked to supply a solution to ensure the safeguarding of both the chidren and for the carers.

Due to the only one entrance to the home Mere UK automated the existing gates to allow the access for both vehicles and pedestrians, an additional return fence panel was installed to create an opening area for the gates to drive open to.

The vehicle gate has been installed with 2 x FAAC automatic gate operators controlled via a FAAC 455D control panel.

Entry through the vehicle gate to the site is controlled by a bellisimo systems video intercom that has been installed for visitors and deliveries to gain access that is monitored from the schools reception.

Exit from the school vehicle gates is obtained by the use of vehicle induction floor loops installed in the secure area.

An over-ride key switch has been installed to allow for the vehicle gates to be over-ridden.
