Gate barrier maintenance

The usual problem with standard arm type barriers is someone accidentally breaking the barrier arm with their vehicle. Dofygate is unique in that it has a clutch that allows the arm to move away on impact from either direction. To reset just push the arm back into position and carry on as normal.

Dofygate achieves this by mounting the supporting post up through the middle of the gate arm base. While the barrier arm opens and closes in the vertical plane the breakaway clutch operates in the horizontal plane. A scalloped plate and wheel held in place by an adjustable spring means the gate can absorb impacts and be reset any number of times.

The main moving parts of a Dofygate are supported by sealed bearings in stainless steel housings so general maintenance is kept to a minimum.
