Access control systems can be used for a variety of different structures. They are commonly seen in residential settings, such as at gates, front doors, or at the entry point of an apartment complex.

Installed at a gate or a door, these straightforward devices allow guests with the proper access code to gain entry. In addition, they are capable of connecting with the homeowner or property manager at the press of a button. You can speak with your guest from any telephone in the home or business. Whether someone is at the front door or the gate of an establishment, the Doorking systems offer owners the ability to clearly communicate with anyone standing in that location immediately.
This extra step of security and access control is especially helpful in places where safety might be of vital importance. For example, gated home communities or apartment complexes often rely upon access control systems to provide residents with an extra layer of support and comfort in their security. Industrial buildings that require maximum security coverage can benefit from the Doorking access control solution, as well as parking structures or storage structures.

What’s New in Barrier Gate Operators and Barrier Replacement Arms
When it comes to controlling the flow of traffic in and out of a specific area, it is helpful to have the most trusted operators working for you. Barrier gates are oftentimes the first line of defense when it comes to controlling traffic, as well as parking situations. These traffic control devices are ideal for industrial set-ups and businesses alike. However, due to the nature of barrier gates operators and their strategic location in parking lots and high-traffic areas, the barrier arms can often become damaged. When you need a new barrier gate operator or a barrier replacement arm, it is helpful to find the right one for the job. When looking for the right barrier replacement arm, don't hesitate to reach out to the knowledgeable team at Trinity Gate & Door. With our wide range of products and experienced team, we ensure you get the security help you need.
To help you get started, take a moment to learn a little more about some of our barrier gate operators and barrier replacement arms:
DoorKing Model 1601 Barrier Gate Operators
One of the highlight features of the Model 1601 Barrier Gate Operator is the specially designed arm that can withstand an impact from a vehicle that fails to stop.

The plastic arm comes in 12’, the wood arm is available in 14’ and the aluminum arm is also 14’.
