A versatile motorized pedestrian gate

The SW500 motorized pedestrian gate provides single direction entry or exit control. The gate includes a motion detector that opens the gate when movement is detected. The SW500 can also be activated to open using a push button or key switch.



Customer and shopping cart entry control

The SW500 pedestrian gate is an ideal crowd control gate to provide entry or exit control in retail facilities, health clubs, or any indoor location where pedestrian flow control is required.

Smooth operation and programmable features

The SW500 motorized, microprocessor controlled, pedestrian gate provides single direction entry or exit control. The SW500 provides a 36″ passage width, or two gates can be installed in tandem (Model SW500T) to create a 72″ opening width.

The pedestrian gate has a powerful brushless DC motor that opens and closes the gate smoothly. As patrons or carts approach the gate, a motion detector detects the movement and the gate opens. If additional motion is detected while the gate is open, the gate remains open. If motion is detected while the gate is in the closing cycle, the gate will reopen.

If a gate used for one way passage is pushed or pulled open in the opposite direction, the SW500 can be programmed to sound an alarm and, if desired, output a dry contact for remote notification or activation of other devices.

Various SW500 gate features, including opening and closing speed and dwell time can be customized by the user. Push buttons or key switches can be integrated into the operation of the SW500 to allow for activation by attendants or store personnel.


The SW500 gate comes in a bright chrome finish. Custom plated and powder coated finishes can be provided.

Use our gates, turnstiles and railing to control access and improve your bottom line

Alvarado’s turnstiles, gates and modular railing are inexpensive and effective tools to reduce theft and improve your bottom line. In retail establishments, our products allow you to create patron traffic flow patterns into and out of your store, and within your store, that channel entering patrons toward desirable merchandise areas, and exiting patrons toward check stands and other monitored areas. Used correctly, our products can both enhance store operations and reduce shrinkage.

The SW500 crowd control gate has several safety features. The rear of the gate contains a presence sensor that detects person or objects in the gate opening path. If a person or object is detected, the gate will not open until the obstruction is removed. If the gate arm encounters a person or object during movement, the impact is sensed and the gate will stop moving. If power is removed from the gate, the gate arm can be manually opened with 2lbs. of force. An input is also provided to integrate the gate with fire alarm systems.
