Rated Drop Arm Barriers - Total Fence

Total Fence offers complete supply and installation services for Barrier Arms and Rated Drop Arm Barriers from industry leaders including Liftmaster, Ameristar Security Products, and HySecurity.

Barrier Arms feature an arm that lifts from a horizontal to a vertical position in order to control traffic flows and access to secured areas. Examples include parking lots, airports, and institutions. Critical design elements include barrier arm length, frequency of operation, and location to name a few. Barrier Arms used on secure / sensitive sites can be “Anti-Ram” (vehicle resistant); these barriers are generally referred to as “Rated Drop Arm Barriers”.
