Tyre killer can be of two types depending on the usage and type. Manual & Hydraulically operated.
One way Tyre Killer specifically designed for lower security applications, the range is incorporated with spring loaded spikes that are lowered by the movement and weight of the car in the right direction. However, if a vehicle attempts to pass over in the wrong direction, it results in creating multiple tyre punctures.
Hydraulic Tyre Killer is an electro hydraulically operated heavy duty spike barrier which rises above the ground level on giving a valid input signal and thus prevents unauthorized intrusions at entry/exit points of high security premises. When the tyre killer is in a lowered position the vehicles can pass through, thereby providing a good enhanced security blockage system. it is used to allow only the exit of vehicles from a supervised area but to prevent the entrance to unauthorized ones it is typically used for perimeter protection at the exit of companies, hotels, convention centers and similar.
