Why Install a Manual Rising Arm Barrier?

Cost Effective

One of the primary reasons that businesses choose to install manual rising arm barriers over their automatic counterparts is their cost. Due to their comparative simplicity, the design and installation costs of a manual traffic barrier are often much lower than that of an automatic rising arm barrier.

This is one of the driving factors behind the popularity of our manual barriers along with their superior quality and lifespan. The lower cost of our manual rising barriers makes them ideal for any business looking to further secure their premises.

Robust & Low Maintenance

Playing into the cost effectiveness of manual rising arm barriers is their robustness resulting in low maintenance costs. The lack of motorised and moving parts means that there is fewer faults that can occur with these barriers, reducing the cost of maintenance in the long-run.

Our manual traffic barriers are also extremely robust, being manufactured from nothing but the highest quality steel. We do this to ensure that your business remains secure and you’re able to properly prevent unauthorised access to your premises.
