Early warning system for spike barriers

New countermeasure for organised crime

On Sunday 24 October 2021, in a well planned and executed hit, criminals exited a Pretoria shopping centre in two vehicles following a robbery of a jewelry store.

Assisted by accomplices waiting outside of the shopping centre, steel ramps were placed over the existing raised spike barrier. The ramps enabled the criminals to drive over the raised spikes without damaging their vehicles and to get away.

Turnstar’s engineers have been working tirelessly on a solution to prevent and deter this type of circumvention and we believe that we have found the solution.

Turnstar has developed and patented an early warning and deterrent system which will alert security and an anyone nearby of an attempt to place ramps over the raised spikes.

Utilising the existing loops (and infrared beams), Turnstar’s Velocity Raptor spike barrier is able to detect the presence of the ramps and to then provide an output to the security control room. Nearby security and members of the public will be alerted by a strobe light and a siren, both mounted on or near the vehicle barrier.
