The last six years have seen an alarming trend, both in the United States and abroad, in terroristic attacks using motor vehicles as weapons. These attacks have involved cars and trucks barrelling into large crowds, pedestrian areas, and college campuses. Potentially any soft target, such as sports stadiums, community centers, and government buildings, could see a vehicular attack.
The Art of Separation
Ensuring public safety should always be the driving force of security. Protecting both people and property from an attack can take more than rudimentary safeguards like fencing and traffic barriers. Mass demonstrations such as protests can put security teams at odds with these goals, but when intensive measures are taken, the response can project a tone of intimidation instead of protection. With the right tools and excellent preparation, any location can be ready to both safeguard people and property while also maintaining an air of professional authority.
Top Uses for Traffic Controller Tire Spikes
Traffic controller tire spikes are an excellent choice if you need to enforce a one-way traffic flow. Although this type of barrier works well for this particular application, it isn’t necessarily suited to all types of barrier needs. Finding the best barrier solution for your particular need is something that Delta Scientific can help you with.
Keeping Pedestrian Accidents at Bay
While it’s important to prepare for attacks and incursions, security planning has to take every-day issues that traffic control safety systems face and pedestrian safety into account as well. Employees, students and visitors traverse every area on foot at some point, and vehicle-related incidents are inevitable. The goal is to keep accidents to a minimum while still being prepared for major security issues.
Delta Scientific’s MP5000: Stopping Power in Action
Combining versatility and effectiveness into a mobile package, portable barrier systems offer much more than standard permanent installations. Perhaps most successful in this regard is Delta Scientific’s MP5000 Portable Event Barricade, designed specifically for stopping unwanted vehicle traffic dead in its tracks.
How Effective Are Traffic Spikes?
Traffic control spikes allow traffic to flow in one direction while preventing access from the other. Spikes are designed to prevent drivers from entering through an access point where a gate may close slowly or where a gate cannot be installed. Delta offers tire spike traffic controllers for a variety of applications.
