This location in southern Florida decided to use the 6 of our SM38 barriers and recessed them into the roadway by removing a layer of paviing stones that had a solid base underneath. In addition to our Stop Do Not Enter signs they also used our DO NOT ENTER stencil to give motorists an additional warning.
Toronto, Canada -Semi-Truck and Trailer compound. In 2010, thieves started a semi truck and exited the compound with the stolen truck and trailer by driving through the wooden gate arm. The trailer was later recovered however $200,000 in contents was stolen. Three months later another similar theft occurred. Roadshark International supplied a SME barrier, 12 feet in length with an electric controller. Incoming trucks do not have to stop, however outgoing trucks have to stop and the security guard to lowers the blades. No further thefts have occurred.
In 2009 we were contacted by a Golf and Country Club in British Columbia, Canada. The business had been broken into on several occasions with thousands of dollars of property stolen. A chain was placed across the driveway however thieves just drove through it using a stolen vehicle. Roadshark International supplied a surface mounted spike barrier with a latchdown mechanism which allows golf course staff to lock the blades down during business hours. No further break and enters have occurred.
Surface mounted traffic spikes in use at a high security site in the U.S.
This site requested Low Profile inground barriers with galvanized frames . These units have delivered over 3 yrs of reliable performance with very low maintenance.
Roadshark International supplied Low Profile in ground barriers (6 ft length) for an exit-only driveway. These Roadshark LP barriers lasted 3x longer than the equipment previously in use.
In Dec 2011 our Low Profile barriers were tested in Saudi Arabia against several other brands and our LP model was the only model that flattened all 4 tires of the test vehicle! No damage occurred to the Roadshark barriers! The nearest competitor flattened only 1 tire.
In April 2012, our LP barriers were tested with a reduced blade height of 8.5 cm (3.5 inches). The Roadshark LP model and LPC ( counterbalanced +weighted) model were tested and once again the test vehicle’s tires were flattened. Black rubber was left behind on the blades however the barriers were not damaged by the test!

In a gated community in the USA, Roadshark International custom designed a system with extra large stainless steel blades. This system was designed with a “Panic Button” style activation and electric motorized controller. If offenders drive through the security checkpoint, the blades will be instantly raised and the vehicle’s tires are torn apart. Since the installation of this system in 2008, no security breaches have occurred.
