The unique and innovative spike system was developed with the specific aim of bringing a vehicle to a halt without harming passengers. Designed to rip tires apart and even withstand the latest generation of run-flat tires, the spike system has 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 safely.
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.
