Upswung Manual & Automatic Barrier Arm Gates

Doorking 1601 Barrier Gate Opener 


The Model 1601 is for high usage single-lane vehicular traffic control. Typical applications include commercial, industrial, gated communities and apartment complexes. A quick 1.5 second rotation opening time, along with rugged construction and multiple optional features make this 1601 a versatile answer to many parking control problems.  The 1601 is available in white or gun metal gray finish.

These operators are designed so that they can be mounted on either the left or right hand side of the roadway. A battery powered Convenience Open option is available, which provides a method to open the gate if AC power is lost.
The 1601 operator is designed for single lane (14 ft. max) vehicular traffic control in high traffic commercial and industrial applications. The 1601 operator is designed so that it can be mounted on either the left or right-hand side of the roadway and is available in white or gunmetal gray finish. The operator can be equipped with a DC convenience open package (optional) that will automatically raise the arm in the event of a power outage.
