Bi-parting/ flap gate offering high speed passenger flow through the use of flaps which retract into the cabinet when the passenger’s ticket is authorized. This type of gate offers unobstructed visibility for passengers and is silent and smooth in operation.

It is designed with a compact stainless steel cabinet construction and special semi-rigid non-deforming impact absorbing flap panels, available as retractable single or telescopic flap panels.

Features and benefits:

  • Compact stainless steel cabinet construction.
  • Single passage detection.
  • Special semi-rigid non-deforming impact absorbing flap panels.
  • Retractable single or telescopic flap panels.
  • High throughput - 60 passages/minute.
  • High prevention against tailgating.
  • Unobtrusive visibility for passengers.
  • CE marked.

  • Casework: 2 mm thick grade 1.4301 (304) grained stainless steel.
  • Moving panels: Metal core coated with energy absorbent integral polyurethane. Resistant to lateral 800 N impact force without the loss of functionality.

Mode of operation:

Controllable via interface connection to automated fare collection (AFC) control system. On receiving a signal from the AFC control system, or remote control, the flap leaves open (normally closed (N/C)). If an unauthorized person tries to tailgate or attempts to enter from the opposite direction, the internal alarm system is activated. If within the pre-set timeout no passage has occurred, the flaps will close and reset. Normally open (N/O) provides an open walkway in home position and will only close at unauthorized entry or tailgating attempts.

  • Uni-directional with single person detection.
  • Bi-directional with single person detection.
  • Emergency, configurable to fully open or block the passageway.
  • Remote passage control.
  • Traffic way switchable during rush hours.
  • Passenger stacking.

Security features:

  • High-performance fraud detection through sophisticated and proven algorithm.
  • Strategically concealed TX and RX infrared photocell arrays.
  • More than 40 different passage scenarios handled, including intrusion, tailgating, piggybacking, wrong way direction, leave aisle timeout, anti-crawling flap leaf barrier, passenger with a hand carried luggage, passenger with wheeled trolley luggage.
  • >95% detection rate even in complex scenarios at 150 mm distance.

Safety features:

  • Safety force sensing.
  • Accurate presence sensing.
  • Emitter/ receiver infrared sensors technology monitoring the area immediately around the moving flaps.
  • Logic voltage 24 V AC.
  • Voltage free contact input for fire alarm fail state.
  • Moving panels constructed from semi-rigid polyurethane mounted on to a steel core to limit potential damage to passenger.
  • Dynamic impact force compliant with BS EN 60335-2-103.
  • Anti-panic breakthrough force of up to 325 N.
  • Finger entrapment complies to BS EN 60335-2-103.
  • Wide walkway for wheelchair or easier access.
  • Accompanied wheelchair or child passage management.

Passenger information:

Top casework mounted LED display to show the passenger and/ or station staff:

  • Green: Authorized transit.
  • Red: Non passage transit.
  • Orange: Concession transit.

Gate end displays:

  • For guiding passengers there are light indicators integrated into each end leg of the housing (red cross and green arrow).
  • Remotely switchable to conform to the flow of gates at peak times or to close the complete system.

Maintenance access:

  • Access to ticket controller and gate management system via slide out end panels mounted on heavy duty guide rails.
  • Servicing does not impinge on adjacent passageways.
  • Minimal removal parts to reduce mechanical failure and longevity or wear during servicing.

Power failure management:

  • The moving panels can be configured to automatically fail open or remain closed dependent upon if failsafe mechanism is chosen.
  • Upon restoration of power the gate will recycle the panels to the closed position and become available for use once the AFC system is rebooted.

Technical characteristics:

  • Power supply: 230 V AC (50 Hz)/ 115 V AC (60 Hz).
  • Power rating: Standby mode: 50 VA; in operation: 220 VA.
  • Fire signal: Input for voltage free contact.
  • Operating temperature: 0–45°C (at 95% relative humidity (RH) non-condensing). Down to -20°C with heating system.
  • IP rating: IP43.
  • Mean cycle between failure (MCBF): 12 million cycles.
  • Mean time to repair (MTTR): <30 minutes.
  • Flow rate: ≤60 passages/minute dependent on reader.
