  • Spike elevation time – 5 seconds
  • Spike folding to de-elevation time – 5 seconds
  • Maximum vehicle load – 10 tons per axle
  • Controls can be placed on either side of the barrier
  • The Spike Barrier is controlled by a torque motor and powered by a standard 220v source.
  • The spikes are manufactured from 8mm stainless steel or mild steel and are powder coated.
  • The restriction height in “road block mode” is 500mm from the road surface.

Spike Barrier Surface Mount

This barrier is for use alongside the automatic vehicle barrier and has been designed for use within high security applications. It has been designed to protect traffic in both directions.surface mount spike cut

An extremely efficient system, the specification of the barrier itself is the same as the automatic barrier (above). The spikes are cast in a tray and are manufactured from mild / stainless steel. For greater efficiency the mechanism of the pole and the spikes are interlinked meaning it will open and close simultaneously. However separate motors can be used for the two different elements if required.
