For those seeking to learn more about access controls, further information can be read below and much more is available on the internet. Please feel free to contact us to learn more about traffic spike systems and access controls. Prior to designing our own products, we offered products by Antech, Guardian Traffic Systems, and DoorKing. We began to manufacture our own, since other manufacturers’ products proved to be inferior AND a main supplier had refused to honor a serious warranty issue. We respect our customers! Many call our products tire poppers or tire rippers. Some purchasing managers consider our products to be MRO or relating to maintenance, repair and operations.
An access control, which can be a set of traffic spikes, a door, turnstile, parking gate, elevator, or other physical barrier where granting access can be electrically pr automatically controlled. Typically the access point is a door or traffic access mechanism. An electronic access control can contain several components. At its most basic there is an electric lock. The lock is unlocked by an operator with a switch. To automate this, operator intervention is replaced by a reader. The reader could be a keypad where a code is entered, it could be a card reader, or it could be a biometrics reader. Readers do not usually make a decision but send a card number to an access control station that verifies the number against a pre-approved access list. To monitor the door position a magnetic door switch can be used. A door switch is not unlike those on freezers or car doors. Generally, only entry is controlled and exit is uncontrolled. In cases where exit is also controlled a second reader is used on the opposite side of the door or traffic control mechanism. Traffic control mechanisms can be one-way or motorized. In cases where exit is not controlled (free exit) a device called a request-to-exit (REX) is used. Request-to-exit controls can be a pushbutton or a motion detector. When the button is pushed or the motion detector detects motion at the door, the door alarm is temporarily ignored while the door is utilized. Exiting a door without having to electrically unlock the door is called mechanical “free egress”. This is a safety feature. In cases where the lock must be electrically unlocked on exit, the request-to-exit device also unlocks the door.
