AUTOPA Standard Duty Automatic Rising Arm Barrier: ES 50-80  


The AUTOPA Standard Automatic Arm Barrier is designed to provide exceptional security for commercial and industrial sites. The boom and barrier housing are both manufactured from high-quality aluminium which is powder coated as standard to provide an exceptional finish.

The barrier is compatible with a variety of different control mechanisms including Remote controls, keypads and swipe cards. All barriers supplied by AUTOPA are programmed to automatically raise should they make contact with a vehicle passing through the barrier.

This barrier can be used to cover roadways up to 8m with skirts available up to 6m. All installation work must be carried out by experienced and qualified personnel only. Site surveys are advised for all automatic systems to ensure that correct, safe operation and the most suitable control combinations are selected.

Induction Loop and Vehicle detectors

Inductive loop detectors or photoelectric cell systems control the barrier by detecting vehicles. Inductive loops detect the interactive field change of a vehicle as it passes over its wound cable ‘loop’. Photoelectric cells use a reflective beam, ‘sensing’ an object when the beam is broken.

Remote Controls

Push buttons and switches provide easy local control of the barrier, for barrier systems that are permanently manned. Alternatively a keyswitch can be fitted to the barrier cabinet with control override raise & lower commands (key may be removed at any position).

Card Technology

Magnetic stripe and proximity card technologies provide the ideal solution for controlling access for a large number of users. Each card is encoded with a site code and an individual number, providing very secure access control and easy system management. Timed allocation and capture (Magnetic stripe only) systems are also available


Intercom systems provide easy remote verification before allowing visitor access. The only effective system for providing visitor access to a site. Site Surveys are advised for all automatic systems to ensure correct, safe operation and the most suitable control combinations are selected. Suitable signage is recommended to ensure drivers and pedestrians are aware of automatic barrier operation. Safe provision should always be allowed for pedestrians where required.
