Motorized Traffic Spikes


Our automated/motorized hydraulic, surface-mounted traffic spikes are designed to regulate the flow of traffic through a secured control point, while providing a visual and physical barrier to approaching vehicles and preventing against unauthorized vehicles entering and/or exiting a secured area. The spikes are surface-mounted to assist in the elimination of excavation and drainage problems. Designed with customizable control logic, the unit can be easily adapted to new or existing gate operators (e.g., barrier gates, swing gates, slide gates). The utilization of the hydraulic system, with its solid state logic and circuitry, will provide years of worry-free operation.

  1. Install the tire poppers perpendicular to traffic flow. If vehicles cross the traffic spikes at an angle other than 90 degrees the spikes may cause damage to sidewalls of tires.
  2. The top speed at which a car may cross the installed tire spike is 7 MPH. At speeds over the 7 MPH, excessive wear of the spikes, top plate and internal springs will likely result.
  3. The tire spikes should be installed in a location where water is least likely to drain into the unit. Having adequate drainage under the unit is recommended.
  4. Make sure the system is not installed on a slope so as to avoid vehicles accidentally rolling back into the spikes.
  5. Keep pedestrians away from the tire poppers.
  6. Maintenance should be performed periodically to the system to ensure that debris is not accumulating inside of the unit.
  7. It is recommended to have a clear sign warning of the system’s presence and potential tire damage

These are very well built. We have ordered spikes from other manufacturers in years past but the springs kept on breaking but these have held up very nice.
