Octagonal Lighted Signal Arm

Light The Way For Customers To Exit Easily And Safely With Signals And Sensors.

The DKS Octagonal Lighted Signal Arm is the newest option to DoorKing’s popular 1601 Parking Gate Operator. While lowered the aluminum arm is lit with red LEDs sending a clear signal for drivers to stop. When raised the LEDs transition to green – easily alerting drivers when to pull forward.

• Night Visibility at Long Distances
• Reverse Edge Sensor
• Two Sizes for Easy Shipping



Breakaway Arm Option

You Don’t Have To Stop Just Because They Don’t

The perfect solution to reduce maintenance costs, DoorKing’s Breakaway Hardware Kit for Model 1601 Parking Gate Operators prevents costly arm replacements by allowing the arm to swing out of the way in the event that a vehicle fails to stop. The system is easily reset by simply snapping the arm back into place.

• Once broken away, the Barrier Arm snaps easily back into place.
• Set Breakaway from either side of the cabinet.




DKS Pedestrian Protection System

Barrier Gate Safety

In today’s busy world, people often forget to pay attention to their surroundings and can inadvertently place themselves in harm’s way. DKS Parking Gate Operators offer a Pedestrian Detection & Protection System that knows when to allow the Arm to come down – or not. Protect the integrity of the parking facility and prevent those inadvertent accidents from happening. After all, you have better things to do than deal with liability problems.

• It’s Aware, Even When They’re Not
