RPM Hire have PORTABOOM® boom gates available to hire in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Hobart.

The PORTABOOM® is an electronic portable boom gate designed for safer temporary traffic control. The boom gate is controlled from a safe zone by a wireless remote, which removes the need for a  traffic controller  to be directly exposed to active roads.

PORTABOOM® is easy to operate and a highly visible, physical traffic barrier which enables worksites to replace unsafe stop/slow practices. PORTABOOM® units are remotely controlled onsite by a traffic controller at a safe distance from active work sites, which uphold the safety of not only the traffic controller but also the general public.
