We were initially tasked with completing an assessment of the existing barriers to identify if there was any way that they could be repaired. The poor state of the barriers meant that they were only working intermittently, which led to the client having issues with the unauthorised parking of vehicles on their premises. Our aim was to provide a viable, long-term, and cost-effective solution to the client that would bolster security and help to make the barriers more reliable in their day-to-day functionality.
Upon our initial inspection of the two traffic barriers, it was clear that they were in a state of disrepair. With a snapped boom arm, control faults, and damaged loops in the ground, an effective long-term repair was not possible. So as not to do a disservice to the client, we opted to have a new set of barriers installed, thus resolving the issue for the client once and for all. It was also essential for us to maintain a high standard of health and safety throughout the project, as there were still vehicles entering and exiting the site whilst we were working.
Our team opted to install two new BFT Ultra 36 barriers, a model that features LED lights for better nighttime visibility and a one-phase asynchronous motor that allows for high-frequency use. We also fitted new safety loops and safety photocells, as well as ensuring that new cables were connected to the gatehouse, granting the guards full control over the barriers. Along with being highly functional, the new barriers also have a sleek modern look, which has improved the appearance of the facility overall. The client was left totally satisfied with the quality solution and professional service that we delivered.
