What are Car Park Barriers used for?

Car Park Barriers are used to control access at the entrance to car parks, service yards and restricted areas. To choose the best option for your facility just consider a few factors including the space available, how often access is required and the mix of traffic in the area.

Rising Boom Car Park Barriers for car parks have a pivoting arm which rises perpendicular with the ground when in the open position. It is preferable to a gate as obviously there is no swing area required at ground level.

To assist the barrier rising up, there are two options: a counterweight on the opposite side of the base, or to use a gas assist cylinder as in our Autobahn Easy Lift Access Barrier with Swing Post. The advantage of using the Easy Lift system is no space is required on the other side of the base, thus freeing up more space for vehicles.

To also assist with pulling the barrier up into position is the Access Barrer with Counterweight and Swing Post. The counterweight allows the user to swing the main boom into position with great ease, while the swing post reduces the need for a receiving post to be installed on the other side and making overall installation much faster.

What other Car Park Barriers can I purchase from Pittman?

Another popular version of car park barriers are our range of Swing Barriers. Swing Barriers act as a gate in car park and instead of rising into the air (like a boom barrier) the barrier just swings open into a locked position.

Most popular in this category is the Compact Swing Barrier Gate which has a locking support post for both the open and the closed position. Surface mounted installation makes this really easy to put in place and is ideal for schools, hotel car parks and lock-up units.

For a possibly more stylish solution look at the Swivelling Gate which does not require a support post for the locked or open position. Not needing a support post means you do not necessarily need to block off all of the opening, e.g. just enough to block enough so a car would not fit through – so if you have a 4M opening, even a 3M barrier would be sufficient to block cars when closed.

Car Park Barriers FAQ

Car Park Barriers are used to control access at the entrance to car parks, service yards and restricted areas. To choose the best option for your facility it's best to consider -

  • the space available
  • how often access is required
  • the mix of traffic in the area

A rising car park barrier can be bolted directly into the ground. Ideally these boom gates need to be installed directly into concrete pads for best practice. The concrete pads help to provide a stronger, more solid base for the barrier.
The Access Barrier with Counterweight is a popular barrier option. Instead of a swing post the boom rests into a separate end post. This will require an extra installation for the barrier but provides a secure barrier rest for long term use.

There are 2 main types of car park barrier systems to choose from - counterweight barriers and gas-assisted barriers.


Counterweight barriers use a weighted end to move the barrier boom up and down easily. The weight allows the boom to remain fully upright if opened fully. However, the barrier can be locked in an upright position when needed.


Gas-assisted barriers use a pneumatic gas-powered spring to reduce the weight and stress for the user. The boom can be lifted up and down with ease with little to no maintenance required.

  • Control flow of traffic into a premises
  • Deny entry after standard business hours
  • Reduce risk of on-site vandalism
  • Cost-effective entry deterrent

Using a rising car park barrier provides a quick and easy means for controlling vehicle entry to a premises. The highly durable design of the rising barriers allows for a long service life on site. Use the barrier to manually allow or deny vehicles when needed.

The Autobahn Easy Lift Access Barrier with Swing Post provides an easy to use barrier system. The boom can be lifted with great ease through the additional pneumatic gas spring. Users can lift the barrier boom by hand with great ease.
