The Turnstar Velocity Raptor automatic tyre spike industrial barrier, with SwiftDrive technology, is aimed at high-volume and high-security access applications such as parkades, shopping centres residential estates and airports.
The Velocity Raptor’s surface mount version is only 55 mm high and 345 mm wide, making it the lowest surface mount spike barrier with the narrowest width ramp on the South African market. This feature minimises the possibility of damage to the undercarriage of authorised vehicles and increases the comfort of the driver when passing through the barrier. In addition, the barrier is designed to withstand the load effects of a fully-laden 8-ton truck, overloaded three times. The recessed version allows for the roadway to remain smooth and to have only the patented double-sided spike protruding. The double-sided spike provides absolute protection for vehicles travelling in either direction through the lane, something a single-sided spike cannot guarantee.
Durability and reliability are prominent characteristics of the Velocity Raptor, with two separate motors driving the spikes and barrier arm. The SwiftDrive brushless DC motors, with planetary gearbox, provide high levels of efficiency and a high power-to-volume ratio. The brushless DC motors boast an extended life span, which equates to virtually limitless operation cycles.
