Boomgate advertising barrier for access control and outdoor advertising

Boomgate, a company specialising in vehicle and pedestrian access control equipment, recently launched the first real advertising barrier in South Africa. It’s a clever idea: the driver and passengers are sitting in their car anyway waiting to go through a parking boom, be allowed into a shopping centre, or exiting a secure facility. While they’re waiting, why not give them a message to absorb?This unique form of outdoor advertising lends itself well to large displays – signage can range from 2730mm right up to 3760mm wide. Height of the banner is 830mm.

Additionally, the light box on the barrier body can also carry advertising. Here the sizes are 400mm in width by 770mm in height.

Whether you’re regulating traffic, managing access control, or imposing high security restrictions, the Boomgate barrier ad offers both security, traffic flow management, and an option to target various consumer groups and generate income.

The barrier ad offering can integrate with any Access Control and Parking Management System and enables one-on-one prime advertising.

It is ideal for developments such as retail, casinos, and dealerships, as well as residential estates, industrial estates, and for commercial use.
