Automatic or semi-automatic bollards, roadblocks and tire killer spikes are specific tools to prevent perimeter penetration by movable objects.
Operated either pneumatically or hydraulically, the automatic anti-ramming series offers the highest standard of anti-ramming and security protection. Taking as little as 1.5 seconds to reach the fully raised position, these bollards can be used in the most demanding locations where high-volume traffic flows must be managed.
These bollards are often combined with light arm barriers to provide maximum deterrence and safety. With a hard-wearing stainless steel finish, the bollards are engineered to meet the DOS and PAS standards for anti-ramming bollards and are used extensively to protect sensitive government and military locations as well as civilian compounds.
Wedge roadblocks are the anti-ramming solution of choice for the highest security installations where full width lane protection is required. With their quick deployment and ability to bring a vehicle to a complete halt, these roadblocks are engineered to meet the most demanding security standards. These roadblocks are suitable for the protection of sensitive government and military locations and of entrance ways to key infrastructure compounds.
With a shallow foundation depth of 500mm and an efficient hydraulic mechanism, the hydraulic roadblock is simple to install and operate and requires minimal maintenance. The roadblock can be activated using a range of access control solutions and can be fully integrated into perimeter security systems.
The roadblock model with a foundation depth of 1800mm provides even greater protection with a deeper foundation.
The surface mounted roadblock is a unit requiring no foundations.
All our roadblocks offer:
As well as the standard widths that we offer, custom units can be manufactured according to your specifications and the unique needs of the roadway to be protected.
tire killer spikes
The unique and innovative fast-response tire killer spike system was developed with the specific aim of bringing a car to a halt without harming passengers. Designed to rip tires apart and even withstand the latest generation of run-flat tires, these high security active spikes have been proven in the field as a particularly effective solution for border crossings and locations where vehicles pass at high speed.
Pneumatically operated and typically synchronized with a light arm barrier, the spike system comprises a set of hollow spikes which cross the entire width of the lane. When the barrier is down, the spikes are locked in the raised position and when the barrier is raised, the spikes are lowered into the ground allowing cars to pass over.
The hollow spikes have been engineered to ensure that a vehicle will be disabled irrespective of the approach direction. The height and width of the spikes have been specifically designed to rip apart both small private vehicle tires and large commercial vehicle tires. Even run-flat tires which use either the solid wall or wheel band method, are similarly disabled by this system which is particularly ruthless in its ability to shred a tire and damage the wheel.
Suitable for all weather conditions, the spike system incorporates a self-cleaning mechanism and drainage.
