Automatic Systems Vehicle Gates Achieve ETL Certification to UL 325

Automatic Systems, Premier Sponsor and Platinum Award Winner in the 2019 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is pleased to announce the companies BLG7X vehicle products are now listed to UL325 Standards to protect people from accidents involving automated gates.

Top tier Winner of the coveted Platinum ‘ASTORS’ Award for ‘Best Pedestrian Entrance Control Solution‘ for Four Consecutive Years, Automatic Systems is a world leader in the automation of secure entrance control equipment for pedestrian & vehicle access, and has been designing and manufacturing pedestrian, vehicle and passenger access systems for over 50 years.

Automatic Systems product portfolio complements Security Entrance Lanes, Swing Gates, Tripod Turnstiles, Full Height Turnstiles, Parking, Toll and Perimeter Rising Barriers, Extra-Long and Security Barriers, Rising Fenced Barriers, Rising Bollards and Road Blockers.

The newly redesigned BLG7X gates, are full height automatic gates recognized for their reliability and low cost of ownership, while providing long-term access control to a facility’s perimeter.

The Automatic Systems BLG 77 gate specifically, ETL listed to ensure user safety, is a reinforced rising fenced barrier that is the preferred alternative to a sliding gate.

(Thanks to its reinforced fence, Automatic Systems BLG 77 rising barrier offers a robust alternative to a sliding gate, while having advantages in terms of maneuvering speed and obstruction on the ground. Courtesy of Automatic Systems and YouTube.)

One of the fastest full height automatic gates on the market, it is capable of opening a passage width of 20 feet in seven seconds and is an ideal solution for high traffic applications that require strict entry control.

These barriers are used at sensitive sites requiring a high level of security such as ports, airports, logistics companies, and military installations.

While the BLG 76 rising fenced barrier, can control a passage of up to sixteen and a half feet wide, is equipped with aluminum fencing.

Its fast speed and smaller footprint also make it a solid alternative to a sliding gate.

Automatic Systems redesigned these gates to implement the necessary entrapment protection needed to comply with the UL 325 standard, which requires that, after sensing an obstruction, reversing must begin within two seconds.

This requirement is intended to keep a person from being entrapped in a stationary position by the gate system.

After the first contact, the gate must reverse and travel a minimum of two inches. If a second contact is detected by a Type A device (inherent sensor), the gate must stop only and not reverse.

If a second contact is detected by Type B1 or B2 device (photoelectric sensor or edge sensor), the gate must stop but may also reverse.

These ETL Certified Automatic Systems gates also comply with the ASTMF2200 standard.

“Automatic Systems is committed to meeting the growing industry gate safety standards required,” explains David Enderle, Automatic Systems’ VP of Sales.

“We proactively sought these ETL Certifications to deliver the highest level of security and safety to our installers and end users.”

“The BLG7 gate family offers the fastest opening/closing speed with the smallest footprint in the industry.”

“Our ETL Certifications to UL325 standards are indicative of our commitment and ongoing dedication to remaining a trusted and world-leading provider of automated secure entrance control solutions.”

These BLG7 gates join other Automatic Systems products that are UL or ETL certified for user safety.

The ETL Certifications to UL 325 standards for these Automatic Systems gates spell good news for installing dealers and integrators who need to provide their end users with perimeter security while also complying with increasing safety regulations.

To help significantly reduce the risk of injury or death caused by automated gates, it’s important that installers and technicians adhere to the UL 325 standards on each and every gate installation.
