Automatic Systems to provide major Montreal arena with automated parking gates

June 21, 2021  By  SP&T Staff

Automatic Systems was selected to provide automated parking gates at a major multi-purpose arena in Montreal.

The project was initiated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and was designed to replace an inefficient parking management system comprised of a single vehicle gate.

The project encompassed the installation of a completely new infrastructure including cement islands, new conduits, and new automated vehicle gates. A Regional Security Integrator, specializing in the implementation of unified security technologies, provided this intelligent parking experience. Automatic Systems’ ParkPlus – BL15 automatic vehicle gate model working seamlessly with their Parknet integrated smart parking solutions was installed.

The ParkPlus gate by Automatic Systems is a car park barrier that’s able to work in synergy with an external management system. These smart barrier gates, specifically designed for parking revenue installations, ensure authorized user access while preventing the piggybacking, or tailgating of unauthorized vehicles.


The ParkPlus – BL15 model was the ideal solution for the arena’s needs.

According to a company statement, the installation is made up of four lanes: one dedicated to entry, one dedicated to exit and two reversible lanes that can be used for entry and exit. This configuration helps streamline the traffic flow during the beginning and ending of large events.

“Automatic Systems is very proud to have been chosen to meet the security and safety needs of this world-renowned sporting arena in Montreal,” says David Enderle, VP Sales for Automatic Systems, in a prepared statement. “Our pedestrian and vehicle physical access control equipment is installed and trusted throughout the world. We’re pleased to have accommodated the needs of this prestigious arena here in our own neighborhood!”
