Why is traffic control at military bases and navy sites important?


By controlling the flow of traffic, military bases can prevent unauthorized access to restricted areas and minimize the risk of security breaches.

Protection of assets

Military bases often house sensitive equipment, weapons, and other valuable assets that need to be protected from theft, damage, or unauthorized access.


Controlling traffic helps ensure that military personnel, vehicles, and equipment can move safely around the base, reducing the risk of accidents or collisions.

Compliance with regulations

Military bases are subject to various regulations and protocols, such as the Department of Defense (DoD) Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP) standards, which require strict control over access and movement of vehicles and personnel.

Emergency preparedness

In the event of an emergency, controlling traffic allows military personnel to quickly respond and evacuate the base if necessary.

Efficient operations

By controlling the flow of traffic, military bases can ensure that vehicles and personnel move smoothly and efficiently, reducing downtime and optimizing operations.

How can Roadshark help with traffic control at military bases and navy sites?

Roadshark International’s LPC One Way Barrier (Low-Profile Counterbalanced) is a highly effective solution for traffic control at military bases and navy sites. Unlike other road barriers that sit on the ground, the LPC barrier is installed directly in the ground, providing a low-profile and highly visible solution that acts as a deterrent for vehicles driving the wrong way. The LPC One Way Barrier is a counterbalanced barrier, using counterweights to keep its blades in the armed position, with the option of springs for added tension. It is designed to withstand speeds of up to 10 mph, and even if an auxiliary spring fails, the counterweights ensure that the blades will remain in the armed position.

By choosing the LPC barrier from Roadshark International, you can ensure that your facility is protected against potential security threats and unauthorized visitors. Whether you’re looking for a low-profile and highly visible barrier, or a maintenance-free solution that can withstand harsh environments, Roadshark has you covered.
