Zero-compromise safety at every gate: at the airport, safety is the top priority.

RFGate wireless signal transmission system from BBC Bircher Smart Access provides seamless, reliable protection on this telescopic sliding gate, which is around 40 meters (? 44 yd) in length. The system transmits the status of the pressure-sensitive safety edges, which are mounted on the mobile parts of the gate, to the switching device securely and contact-free via radio.
