The Cheetah barrier is probably the most versatile and reliable parking barrier currently available today! It is available to suit road widths from 2000mm right up to 10000mm, with operating times from an ultra-fast 0.7 seconds, up to 9.0 seconds.

Every Cheetah barrier is fully warranted for 2 years, with no limit to the number of operations during this time! The barrier is also supplied with a choice of control from a range of microprocessor based units, providing virtually every conceivable mode of operation that may be required. Even then, and in addition to our standard controllers, we have over 100 bespoke software programs, plus the capability to write new programs should your requirements be extra special!


Standard controllers can include the following features:

* Impulse open & close.

* Time close facility (programmable).

* Capacity counting (1-9999 spaces).

* Traffic direction sensing capability.

* Barrier cycle count.

* On-board vehicle detectors (up to 3 No).

* Error display.

* Barrier obstructed/forced display (& output).

As with all Motivation products, Cheetah barriers are constructed using the best materials and finishing processes, with an eye to detail that sets them apart from most others.

All drive components are zinc plated with yellow passivation finish, whilst the cabinet is finished in an attractive-orange plastic coating. The cabinet base is constructed from stainless steel to further prevent corrosion. The octagonal barrier arm is powder coated white, with red reflective stripes both sides. Stop & No-Entry signs are also included as a standard fitment.

The barrier is fully (internally) counterbalanced, making manual operation in the event of power failure "finger tip light", even on the, longest arm. Alternatively, the barrier may be specified to "fail open" in the event of power failure as an extra cost option. Where security is to be maintained at all times, an automatic arm lock can be specified, which will lock the arm to a special post each time the barrier closes.

Every Cheetah is operated by a special 240V (single phase) torque drive motor, designed to deliver years of trouble free service. Two important features of this unit are its ability to stall when obstructed (minimizing potential damage to vehicles beneath) and, being permanently energized even in its closed position, provides a higher level of security, and prevents condensation build up even in extremes of climate and temperature.

Cheetah Barrier Options :

* Low headroom (articulated arm) applications.

* Standard height adjustable crutch post.

* Automatic locking crutch post.

* Flashing or static arm mounted warning lights.

* Arm mounted pendulum posts.

* Aluminium folding skirts.
