The new auto-spike barrier gate operator system from DoorKing is designed to provide increased traffic lane control in applications where bollards or crash barriers aren’t practical. Parking lot operations are constantly on the lookout for vehicles being stolen from their lots, patrons running checkout booths, etc. Crash bollards and barriers can be expensive and difficult to install and, while they disable vehicles, they often damage them. The DoorKing auto-spike system provides a cost effective method to control traffic exiting or entering a lot, and will disable the vehicle by flattening its tires if an unauthorized exit occurs. The barrier gate operator and auto-spikes operate in synchronization so that the spikes are always in the up position when the barrier arm is down, and in the down position when the barrier arm is up.

A Breakthrough in Firefighting
NetTalon, Inc. introduces a networkable fire protection system that reports alarm conditions to all authorized monitoring stations within two seconds of a sensor or smoke detector going into alarm. Sensor and detector conditions depicting the nature of the evolving emergency are reported instantly on a graphic representation of a building’s floor plan. Icons that represent the sensors and smoke detectors are overlaid on the floor plan and change color to indicate alarm conditions.
In a fire emergency, responders can use NetTalon to view the fire’s behavior remotely and in real-time. This will allow them to make decisions about equipment and personnel needed at the fireground and formulate plans for victim rescue and fire knockdown before arriving. Additionally, the speed of reporting can virtually put fire units on the scene much earlier in the fire timeline and thus provide opportunity for validation of the fire before the engines arrive.
