Surface Mount Tire Spike Barrier

Q: What is a surface mount tire spike barrier?


A: Surface mount tire spike or tire shredder barriers are designed to arrest wrong way drivers and keep unauthorized vehicles from entering a secure area or parking lot. A surface mount tire or vehicle spike barrier uses teeth to puncture tires and deter gate runners and other vehicular threats. Often called tire shredders or tiger teeth barriers, these barriers can be either surface mounted (which avoids trenching and disturbing utilities), or flush mount (below ground) which creates a smoother driving surface for better traffic flow.

Manual, one-way spike systems utilize a spring loaded surface mechanism to deter vehicles from driving the wrong way or entering unauthorized areas. More sophisticated systems are mounted in the ground and require electric or hydraulic activation.
