The Ultimation Range of Rising Barriers

Manually Operated Barriers

The D1500 manually operated barrier is an ideal choice to protect unattended or low traffic sites with minimal investment. As standard, the D1500 comes complete with preset counterweights, an adjustable tip support and anchor bolts.

Automatic Barriers

The D3250 automatic barrier has been the most popular barrier in our range since its introduction due to its smart appearance and ease of set up. Fully 100% rated, our D3250 barrier is suited to the most demanding applications with the highest level of traffic flow.

Heavy Duty Automatic Barriers

Our newly redesigned D3850 heavy duty barrier extends the capability of the D3250. The redesign utilises an enhanced motor and gearbox assembly which has eliminated the need for counterweights.

Interlocked Security

The use of barriers with outher security measures can increase your site safety as well as enhance security levels. All Ultimation barriers and gates are capable of being interlocked without any additional hardware upgrades.


Ultimation have a policy of continual improvement which allows us to offer state of the art control and safety systems, and keeps us one step ahead of the competition. The PLC software was developed in house by Ultimation engineers to simplify installation and maintenance procedures. Our standard control system for barriers, gates and road blockers provides installers and end users with the ability to simply adjust operational parameters to suit their particular application.
If the system develops a fault, the screen glows red to alert the engineer, and the fault history can easily be displayed to allow instant diagnosis.
The Schneider programmer ensures that accessing parameters from the graphic display is both intuitive and user friendly. The user can simply scroll through the parameters and turn them on or off as desired. Speeds are set in a similar way to suit site requirements.
The system also has a built in time-clock function, allowing gates or barriers to be opened and closed to suit site requirements such as shift changes or holidays.


It is common practice to fit induction loops under the road surface to provide added protection to vehicles. As an example, if a vehicle with a trailer stops part way through the barrier, the photocells may see between the vehicle and trailer, and allow the barrier to operate. The addition of an induction loop will act as a second level of safety, and prevent movement until the vehicle has cleared the barrier.


For plain booms, we can fit a protective rubber safety edge to the underside of the boom. This rubber edge is a Category 3 self monitoring system and will cause the boom to immediately stop movement and return to the raised position if it encounters an obstruction whilst closing. Our PLC system allows us to adjust the response time for this safety system to provided almost instantaneous response to a safety issue.


To enhance the standard safety system, clients can add secondary safety items such as a flashing beacon with sounder capabilities, LED boom lights and STOP signs. If a desktop push button system is chosen, this will also have an integrated emergency stop function, and a deadman keyswitch is also available.


For barriers with a plain boom, we fit a pair of photocells which protect the roadway directly under the boom. The photocells are fitted to the barrier cabinet and to the tip rest. Wired photocells are usually supplied, but we can also supply wireless units if it is not possible to cable across the road. For barriers with a lower skirt, or hi-bar upper and lower skirt, two pairs of photocells are fitted. These are mounted on stand off brackets either side of the boom at different heights to provide maximum protection.
