A sliding beam is a horizontal beam movably fixed on a rack in such a way as to allow the beam to block access through a controlled point for all/some vehicle types.
If motor vehicle access is not specified, motor_vehicle=no implied. Depending on adjacent objects (fences, sidewalks, etc.) or sticking out degree a sliding beam may allow or forbid foot/bicycle access.
