Our latest major references worldwide make us a recognised leading supplier of gates for public transport systems.
Flow capacity and safety in public transport systems
The public transport system of tomorrow will mean increased traffic and even greater volume of travellers. This will make increasing demands on the control system designed to filter out paying passengers from those without a valid ticket. Transit controls need to be secure, convenient, well designed and able to cope with major flows of travellers on the busiest transport services.
The safety aspect demands are also increasing due to that more and more people pass through the different systems every day. Gunnebo Entrance Control’s products are all supplied with different kinds of security functions to ensure a safe exit in case of emergencies like panic or fire.
Transit control solutions for metro lines
Gunnebo Entrance Control’s metro solutions cover every need from straightforward turnstiles to SpeedGates for maximum passenger flow and security – such as rush hour traffic on the underground systems of the world’s major cities.
It is also vital to establish a secure and reliable interface for communication with the entrance barrier and the ticket system. Gunnebo Entrance Control’s product portfolio is compliant to most card reader systems, code or biometrics devices.
Our global presence has given us a genuine knowledge of the special conditions of each individual market. We are ISO 9001 accredited and our solutions comply with all existing standards, CE-testing and local requirements.
In the Metro where there are large crowds of people in motion, there is a need for installations that regulate flow, steer people and prioritise high flow capacity. Gunnebo Entrance Control’s standardised product portfolio has a lot to offer for an easy, reliable and comfortable solution, but products can also be customised in terms of functionality, design and materials.
The HiddenGate is a speed gate for internal installations. This award-winning range of entrance gates represents the latest developments for today’s security requirements. The HiddenGate operates using proven technology for fast reliable operation. Infrared sensors detect the movement of people within the passageway and prevent tailgating, providing maximum flow-capacity and high reliability.
This range also includes a wide walkway that complies with disability discrimination requirements. The HiddenGate is available with bi-parting, or full panel gate.
Entrance control must operate flawlessly and convey quality. Turnstiles must be light, locks must disengage when activated and gates must open and close smoothly. Solutions range from more simple turnstiles to advanced tripod turnstiles with motorised card-readers and anti-panic drop arms.
Portable magnetic reader (PMR)
Our PMR, with wide lane, interlocking doors and sensor systems, has been designed especially for mass transit. It is suitable for passengers that need a wider walk lane.
Motorised flap gates
Motorised flap gates are efficient with sensor systems that detect any tailgating attempts, and are available with a wider lane. For higher security, pressure-sensitive lids are optional.
Australia cannot decide whether to enter the high speed rail revolution. Despite the 12 December 2000 decision to formally abandon its plans for a Speedrail network between Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, and Canberra, the nation's administrative capital, it is still talking to potential developers.
As well as being the principal component of its urban public transport system, the Metro is a long-standing symbol of Paris. The bulk of the basic system was completed before the outbreak of World War II, a densely packed network within the city-proper's boundaries.
Capital of the Midi-Pyrénées region, Toulouse, in south-west France is the centre of one of Europe's fastest-growing metropolitan areas with an estimated population of over 1.1 million. It has serious transport problems that could worsen because expansion is taking place in regenerated wastelands with a poor road network.
