Sentinel Surface Mount Tyre Spikes

High security, high volume, fast-acting road barriers


The Sentinel Surface Mount Tyre Spikes provide added safety and security when used with a boom gate or other traffic signalling systems.


These surface-mounted tyre spikes are ideal for installations requiring medium to high-security control for smooth-flowing traffic in carparks, airports and shipping ports, industrial areas, Government buildings, military complexes, power plants and distribution depots.

Mounted above the general surface of the roadway the tyre spikes are highly visible and create a traffic gentle bump, slowing vehicles for a safe access control point.

The Sentinel Surface Mount Tyre Spikes include the following features:

  • Modular construction: allowing components to be easily transported and installed (2cm x 1M each)
  • High security:  provides extra security to traffic barrier access controlled entrances and exits
  • Robust construction: all-weather construction and built to withstand impacts from vehicles
  • High visibility: the traffic yellow coloured spikes are highly visible increasing safety
  • Easy to maintain: all moving parts are removable for easy maintenance providing cost and time efficiency
  • Reliable and efficient: high-torque DC motor for greater reliability and responsive operation – external limit switches provide a failsafe operation
  • Battery backup:  ensures continued service in the event of a power outage
  • Highly configurable: to suit the requirements of just about any installation including:
    • Selective security and safety modes
    • Adjustable speed of operation
    • Ability to operate independently of traffic barrier units
    • Can be mounted in any position, even away from the traffic barrier
    • Easy to change orientation depending on traffic flow requirements
    • Supports output for traffic lights interface
  • Flush mounted option is available on request.
