FAAC Launch First 24V Hybrid Automatic Barrier - August 2012


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.
