Versilis has developed the remotely controlled SwiftGate™ lane-closure system to cope with the urgent need for innovation in traffic control due to a constant increase in highway traffic and road construction. The system prevents lane closures becoming hazardous, time-consuming and costly.
The Versilis SwiftGate solution is a secure, remotely controlled lane-closure system comprised of a series of easily installed modules. Each individual module is solar-powered and completely independent of any wiring for ease of installation. Gates can vary in length and can be adapted with traffic signs and/or flashing lights.
A system application can include two types of modules: gate modules and signage modules. Gate modules consist of a pivoting gate, a solar panel and a control box. Signage modules consist of a pivoting traffic sign, a solar panel and a control box. Both modules can be adapted with flashing lights. They can be installed on the right and/or the left side of the roadway.
Long-distance commands are sent by high-frequency radio signals to activate the gate system. When activated, the system creates a continuous obstacle line that acts as a vehicle deterrent more effective than regular delineation like barrels and cones. The SwiftGate has received an approval letter from the FHWA for its compliance with NCHRP350, declaring it safe for use on the Canadian national highway aystem.
The SwiftGate remote monitoring control is easily operated with an RF unit, mobile phone or a web-based application.
Lane-closure system applications
SwiftGate's applications include highway lane closures, operations of signage, temporary workzone lane closures, reversible lanes (HOV, HOT, etc.), emergency closures, on-ramp and off-ramp traffic flow control, median crossover management, and toll-booth lane management.
The lane-closure system can be installed permanently or temporarily as modules are easily relocated.
Versilis is grounded on two basic principles: safety and efficiency. Founded by a team of highly qualified and experienced road safety professionals, the company's goals are to develop new solutions to maximize safety on the roads for users and workers while minimizing impact on traffic flow.
Based in Montreal, Canada, we pride ourselves on our ability to go beyond the obvious to resolve some of today's roadside safety and traffic control challenges.
