Magnetic Automation Joins Invisa OEM Parking Gate Safety Program

Invisa Inc. announced that Magnetic Automation Corp. of Rockledge, Florida, has joined Invisa's OEM Program for parking gate manufacturers. Magnetic Automation is the U.S. unit of the Magnetic Autocontrol Group, one of the world's largest manufacturers of barrier gates.
Magnetic Autocontrol is headquartered in Germany with operations in the U.S., Brazil, India, Malaysia, China and Australia.

According to Stefan Tea, General Manager, Magnetic Automation, "Magnetic has consistently been proactive in the area of gate safety. We believe that integrating the SmartGate non-contact safety system into our best gate product lines makes a powerful statement to our distribution chain while at the same time greatly enhancing our risk management strategy. We want everyone from our distributors & dealers right down to the ultimate owner/operators of our gates to have the opportunity to purchase the safest possible Magnetic gate products available."

"The enhanced risk management position we achieve, by making our SmartGate equipped gate lines the standard first offering at virtually all sales opportunities, is a valuable added bonus of the Invisa OEM program. Enlightened gate manufacturers and prominent powered closure industry leaders consistently strive for the best possible safety standards for our products. Magnetic Automation is once again leading that charge by integrating Invisa's SmartGate safety system into our gate products," concluded Mr. Tea.

Invisa's line of SmartGate safety equipment is the only electronic non-contact safety system designed to provide an invisible field that moves with and precedes the gate arm. If the gate arm is coming down on a pedestrian, bicycle, motorcycle, car or other vehicle, the gate arm is signaled to stop and reverse before any contact has been made to avoid injury and damage.

Steve Michael, Invisa's acting President, stated, "Magnetic Automation leads the global gate market in innovation and sales and we are proud that an organization with the reach and reputation of Magnetic has chosen Invisa as its partner in advancing gate safety standards. Risk is particularly high in environments with heavy pedestrian traffic, especially where there may be children, general pedestrian traffic, bicyclists, or motorcyclists. We believe Magnetic's new product offerings will be particularly attractive in environments that can be high risk for parking gates such as employee and customer parking lots, gated subdivisions, condominiums & apartments, municipal buildings & parking facilities, entertainment venues, airports, hotels and pay-parking facilities."

Manufacturers seeking to join the OEM partner program can contact Carl Parks, Invisa chief operating officer, via e-mail at or call 941-355-9361, ext. 124.
