HW Series Warning Gates Features

Basic Features:

  • Horizontal operation for lower profile installation
  • Arm lengths up to 45’ (from center of pivot to tip of arm)
  • Rugged design specifically for movable bridges, reversible lanes and similar access control installations (not a “parking lot” or “railroad” gate)

Features that set B&B Roadway's HW Series Gates apart:

  • Unique limit switch design
    • Allows unequaled ease of adjustment (with arm in any position, just loosen 1 nut and adjust any cam desired)
  • Innovative arm base design
    • Automatically latches arm in the out-of-traffic position after an impact shears the safety pin and allows arm to swing out of the way - simply pull latch, swing arm back into position and replace pin to reset (arm does not fall off onto the roadway, pulling light wiring, etc.)
  • Square arm tube
    • Offers dramatically better strength under wind load
  • High Intensity reflective sheeting
    • Up to 5 times as reflective as engineering grade
  • Ball/roller bearings on pivot shaft
    • Smooth, low-friction operation
  • Vise-action door handles
    • Consistently pull up doors to seal openings
    • Available in choice of 4 styles
  • Compressed bulb door gaskets
  • Solid construction housing

    • Entire housing hot dip galvanized after fabrication (not just the frame)
  • Limit switch cover
    • To prevent accidental contact with electrical contacts
  • Pull-to-override, automatic-reset door safety switches
    • Make testing during setup or service safer and more convenient
