Automatic Road Blockers

Category: .


The APS range of Security Road Blockers provides the ultimate in perimeter protection — reliable security where unauthorised vehicles need to be stopped. Designed and developed to provide effective traffic control where other conventional barriers are unable to provide an adequate deterrent. We are a leading road blockers manufacturer.

Automatic Rising Road Blockers APS hydraulic road blockers have a fully enclosed framework designed to simplify and reduce the cost of the installation process. The enclosed sides eliminates the need for a pre-cast concrete mounting trough. The unit is simply placed on a flat concrete slab within the trench, and back filled with concrete or even sand thus saving time, money and minimising disruption on site.

Ideal for maximum security sites such as Government installations, Royal palaces, Military bases, Police stations, Embassies, Airports etc. Blockers are available up to 7m long with rising heights of between 300mm to 800mm. Quick acting mechanism removes the risk of “tailgating”.
