USB-based components FlashPARCS was designed with the goal of providing you with the most reliable and cost efficient PARCS system. Its low voltage, USB based plug-and-play design ensures you have maximum uptime at the lowest maintenance cost.
Parking Barrier Gates FlashPARCS is gate-agnostic and works with any parking gates. If installing new gates we recommend Magnetic brand (straight boom, articulated, breakaway flange, LED lights, broken arm notifications, and many more options available with Magnetic parking barriers).
