Magnetic Gate Openers offer many barrier openers for many different applications. Understanding the boom barrier arms that go with them can seem confusing, but that is why we break them down individually and look at some of their differences. This guide may help anyone needing a replacement barrier arm as well. Many of these arms are available in different configurations and add-ons. Articulating arms would be an excellent option to have for low-ceiling environments. At the same time, the designs with skirts may be a good choice if there is pedestrian traffic alongside vehicular traffic.

Magnetic AutoControl VarioBoom Barrier Arms

VarioBoom

The VarioBoom is a barrier arm compatible with the Access Pro-L and Parking Pro barrier openers. It's a fantastic boom arm that can fit widths up to 20 ft. (6 m). For the Parking Pro model, there is a breakaway flange option. This allows the barrier arm to disconnect from the opener without damage to the arm or opener. It can be re-attached. There are other options as well for the VarioBoom. LED lights can come pre-installed or installed onto an existing arm. This feature turns red when closed and green when open, which alerts the driver when there is safe passage. The VarioBoom is available in an articulated option too. This allows the barrier to only need a passage height of 7 ft. (2.1 m) while still having a 10 ft. (3 m) entrance/exit width.
