Having pioneered the introduction of 24V hydraulic gate automation, FAAC have now introduced their first 24V barrier to the market The barrier in the accompanying image is installed at the Strathclyde Fire Training Centre in Scotland and has a 8m beam. Facilities manager at the training centre, Graham Burnett, explained that two B680H barriers were installed at the newly built Fire Training Centre and have worked very efficiently since they took possession of the site in April 2012. A battery backup has been installed to ensure the operation of the B680H even during a power cut, something that is extremely important to the fire service

The B680H controls passages with a net width from 2m to 8m and its modular beams make it a product which is easy to manage during installation. The barrier is rated for continuous duty operating beams of 8m in 6 seconds and beams of 2m in 1.5 seconds. Accessories for the barrier include an integrated red/green LED unit on top of the cabinet that flashes during operation and LED beam lights create a highly visible and safe operating environment.

With more than 40 year’s experience, FAAC is a world leader in access control automation.  The company has manufacturing and development facilities in Italy and Ireland and distributes its products in more than 90 countries.  FAAC (UK), based in Basingstoke, is the market leader in residential and commercial markets which it serves through a national network of 800 approved installers, all trained to FAAC’s high standards.
