TruckStopper™ is designed to obstruct all vehicles and pedestrians, offering 3.5 metre to 6 metre opening spans.
TruckStopper™ has been successfully tested for impacts, including stopping a 7.5 tonne truck at 82.3kph. TruckStopper™ is availlable in multiple versions and with a range of features.
TruckStopper™ is constructed of steel and consists of a drive buttress, back rail, leaf (cantilevered sliding gate) and receiving buttress.
The standard version weighs nearly four tonnes and has a span of 3.5 metres to 6 metres.
TruckStopper™ can operate at high speed (1 to 1.5 metres per second) on a 100% duty cycle (that is, all day, every day operation).
When obstructed, the leaf barrier is capable of stopping within 200 to 300mm, using sophisticated safety systems and protective devices including photo electric beams, piezzo and strobes.
The standard TruckStopper™ is driven by a 4kw motor and also includes an uninterruptible power suppply (UPS).
It is controlled by a PLC containing Ezi Automation's proprietary software and integrated with third-part access control systems.
A recently developed variant is TruckStopper™ RDSM. This is a specially designed rapid deployment, surface mounted product. It is a high performance gate that requires no additional footing when bolted to a typical concrete road base.
The standard product can be modified to accommodate particular needs and situations.
For example, a recent sale incorporated a double height dimension (approximately 2 metres) with a total height of over 4 metres.
