Scorpion Spike Barriers for St Helena Bay

Issue 8 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

Boomgate Systems was chosen by a partner as the preferred supplier for a project in the Port of St Helena Bay. The product chosen was the Scorpion High Security Spike Barrier. Having supplied various major ports throughout South Africa’s coastal cities, from Saldanha Bay to Richards Bay, the quality of the product has stood the test of time.

The Scorpion Spike Barrier is supplied with Boomgate’s ‘True Battery Backup System’ as well as the incorporation of two independent torque motors which are electronically interlocked for safe functionality. This means the spikes lower before the boom arm opens to ensure the vehicle is able to pass through safely.

Normally, if one forces the boom arm of a closed spike barrier open to gain unauthorised access, the spike would nominally drop and the intruder can gain access. The Scorpion High Security Spike Barrier does the opposite; the spikes remain up, preventing unauthorised access and making the spike barrier very secure.

Boomgate System’s Scorpion High Security Spike Barrier is 100% duty rated and is manufactured for long lasting continuous operation. It offers protection from both directions and can integrate with any access control and ticketing system.
