To prevent damage to barriers with a long arm, we advise our customers to consider one of our support poles. Because the arm stays in place, it doesn’t get damaged easily by vandalism.
All 4 types are adjustable in height. These are the different types:
- Support pole
- Support pole with pin bolt
- Support pole with magnet
- Folding support pole
Sometimes there simply isn’t enough room for a support pole. In this case, we suggest to attach a folding support pole at the end of the barrier arm so it can rest when closed. When the barrier is in open position, there’s no support pole on the driveway that can cause obstruction.
Folding support pole
The top of our standard support pole has been made wider to ease the catch of the barrier arm. The rubber contact strip at the end of the barrier arm ensures a silent closing.
Before the installation process can start, a cable that runs between the control unit and the support pole has to be installed into the ground. The control unit sends a signal when to release the magnet. The magnet is reactivated when it receives a signal to close the barrier.

The pin bolt is unlocked when a signal gets sent. When the barrier is fully closed, the pin bolt locks
