With over 1,000 MRG series railway pedestrian gates now installed in Australia and New Zealand, Magnetic Automation’s MRG gate was the logical answer for South Australia’s first automated railway pedestrian crossing.

The project was worked in conjunction with Magnetic Automation’s distributor in Adelaide, Total Gate & Door Automation.

The MRG gates work on the following principle: when a train approaches the crossing, a Sonalert located in the drive mechanism sounds, followed by the closing of the gate to prevent access across the tracks and exposing the emergency exit.

After the passage of the train, the Sonalert stops and the gate opens under power, once again exposing the walkway permitting access across the tracks and, at the same time, closing off the emergency exit.

The design of the automatic pedestrian gate is highly vandal resistant and all components are of robust construction.
