Torxun Launches AUTOPED at FenceTECH

World's First Outdoor Rated ADA Automated Pedestrian Gate Operator

Salt Lake City, Utah March 3, 2020Torxun™ Vehicle Access Technologies, internationally known for its QuickFold™ folding vehicle gate system, announced the industry's first advanced automated pedestrian ADA operator for fully-outdoor, fenceline environments like property perimeters, pool gates and parking garages.

"At Torxun , we have seen the convergence of ADA, property security, campuses and convenience and once again taken it as a challenge to be solved with a reliable, innovative and trusted solution" stated Art Hird, Torxun CEO.  "There hasn't existed a low energy opener rated for outdoor environments that functions well in rain, snow, heat and salt-air environments. I don't know why, because the need certainly exists. Our solution uses a mechanism that has 15 years of proven service in thousands of installations and millions of cycles of successful, harsh-environment operation.  It is exactly the type of bullet-proof product Torxun is proud to offer."

The AUTOPED™ , pending forthcoming UL 325 listing, complies with the low energy, ANSI 156.19 standards. It can be installed by a dealer with a new or retrofitted gate or quickly installed as part of a fully configured Torxun AMPED™ automated pedestrian gate.

It's electro-hydraulic mechanics and controls are housed in a watertight stainless steel case.  Easily programmed settings allow for push-n-go or standard input operation as well as adjustment for speed, force and timing at multiple points along the open/close arc.

In addition to the AUTOPED operator and AMPED Systems, Torxun has designed and sells the Model 3, tower operator, the QuickFold Gate Systems and folding gate kits, the Model 7 | SecureSlide automated slide gate systems, and various special components including preformed vehicle detection loops; SensorVault vandal resistant sensor protection bollards,  barrier arms with folding and attachment hardware; and innovative lock and panic bar guards for pedestrian gates.

Torxun Launches Model 7 with SecureSlide at FenceTECH 2020

Quiet, Powerful Performance Across Applications from Correctional to Sports Facilities and Warehouses

Salt Lake City, Utah March 3, 2020Torxun™ Vehicle Access Technologies, internationally known for its QuickFold folding vehicle gate system, announced its first automated pedestrian slide-gate designed for secure and high security environments including correctional, campus, warehouse, spectator venues and data centers.

Developed out of the need for a cost effective, heavy duty correctional product rated for over one million cycles the product is developed to meet all correctional institution standards when configured in the SecureSlide PEDPASS SecureMAX package.  For environments that cater to the public and must comply with UL 325 standards, the Secureslide, PEDPASS Secure Package provides sensing protection designed to ensure safe passage of pedestrians or material movers through the gate.

The Model 7 operator is configured into a 3/16" cold-rolled-steel case ready to install into a custom fabricated gate system by the dealer or pre-configured and ready-to-install as a complete SecureSlide gate system.  Thousands of gate material choices and finishes allow architects the opportunity to match nearby surfaces or meet critical standards designed for high security environments.

"When we set out to create the Model 7 Operator we wanted to follow the same flexibility we created with the Model 3 and QuickFold Gate systems. Dealers can either build their own gate with our clear design and fabrication instructions and quickly install the operator or they can receive a a fully fabricated and assembled unit ready to take from truck to opening for its rapid, less-than-a-day installation" stated Art Hird, CEO of Torxun.  "Either way they succeed in the eyes of their client."

The Model 7 and SecureSlide Gate Systems were designed in concert with the correctional industry and security experts. The gearbox-motor drive unit is DC and is controlled by Torxun's controls which are common with the Model 3.  It utilizes a rack and pinion mechanism ensuring quiet, maintenance-free operation. The DC motor and batteries provide inherent battery backup when main power is lost. The Model 7 includes an integrated lock for security. It is fully outdoor rated ready for harsh outdoor environments.  The Model 7 integrates easily with solenoid locking systems for seamless integration to match correctional facility and data center specifications.

In addition to the Model 7 and SecureSlide system, Torxun has designed and sells the Model 3, tower operator, the QuickFold Gate Systems and folding gate kits, the AUTOPED ADA outdoor pedestrian gate operator and system. Torxun also designed and supplies various special components including preformed vehicle detection loops, SensorVault vandal resistant sensor protection bollards,  barrier arms with folding and attachment hardware, and innovative lock and panic bar guards for pedestrian gates.

Torxun launched in 1998 with the first spliceless vehicle loop and folding gate system and evolved into a standalone company in 2018 with rapid expansion into automated and manual pedestrian products in 2019.

The overall width of the Model 7 is 112 inches which provides a clear opening of 48" for pedestrians, carts and pallet jacks.

Using the FlexArm 2 on a folding gate provides no overhead encumbrance allowing installations where vertical clearance is critical to property access.  The FlexArm 2 joins the QuickFold Flex kit family with the popular FlexGuide™ which provides a guided wheel alternative for properties where a tracked solution is preferred.

The FlexArm 2 kit is designed in a right and left configuration and blends well with the gate architecture to virtually  disappear when closed. Each kit includes Torxun's HeavyHinge(™) is specifically designed for hinging automated vehicle folding gate panels. 

"This is the next generation of the FlexArm. Its lighter weigh, more compact and less visible, while still providing strength, long wear and silent motion." says Art Hird, Torxun CEO.  "As the early pioneer with more than 20 years of experience in folding gates, we are excited to see the exponential growth of the folding gate and folding door as a preferred platform for vehicle gates and doors where both space and durability are valued at a premium. Along with our HeavyHinge™, we have created what increasing  sales growth suggests is the apex folding gate solution in the industry". 

In addition to the QuickFold FlexARM 2 and FlexGUIDE kits, Torxun has designed and sells the Model 3, tower operator, the QuickFold Gate Systems and folding gate kits, the AUTOPED ADA outdoor pedestrian gate operator and system, and special components including preformed vehicle detection loops; SensorVault vandal resistant sensor protection bollards,  barrier arms with folding and attachment hardware; and an innovative lock and panic bar guards for pedestrian gates.
