Guardian Traffic Systems road blockers, traffic spikes, access controls and CCTV are used to control access to or from airport parking and ground transportation, car rental agencies, car parks, parking garages and airport freight delivery. The Guardian product line is the most extensive, well-engineered and best built product for effective and economical controlled access.

Guardian Traffic Systems’ tire spike units are available in either surface mount or in-ground applications. Our tire spike units utilize a proprietary spring-loaded counter balance technology ensuring spikes return to their upright position.

Our tire spikes systems are designed for reliability and low maintenance providing years of dependable service. Guardian Traffic access controls manage who can go where and when in designated areas. Access Control means management can control who has access to secured areas and at what time, while recording and storing the information.

Traffic spike systems

The COBRA and KING COBRA share many attributes as leaders in surface mount and in-ground traffic control, but also have their own unique benefits. Both offer nearly indestructible top plates handling extreme vehicle axle weight ratios. Our top down design allows for the easiest maintenance in the market, the curved spike teeth allow for smooth correct way traffic, while the fish hook bard rips tires when traveling against entry.

Motorized traffic spike systems

Guardian’s ENFORCER and PROTECTOR motorized traffic spike systems provide reliable access traffic control by electro-mechanically moving the teeth up to an active or secured position, and then down to allow unrestricted passage to authorized vehicles.

The self-contained modular system allows design flexibility combined with easy installation in manned or unmanned sites. The ENFORCER and PROTECTOR can be installed in new or existing facilities and is easily integrated with multiple access control options.

The ENFORCER and PROTECTOR are ideal for airport parking facilities, such as rental car or other secured locations where a high level of access control is required.

Guardian Traffic Systems offers an extensive line of access control products that work in harmony with the ENFORCER / PROTECTOR series or any traffic spike systems.

Concealed traffic spike systems

Guardian Traffic Systems STINGRAY pedestrian-friendly concealed traffic spike unit is engineered and designed with below-grade spikes that will puncture the tires of offending vehicles while providing above-grade, non-penetrating teeth. The below grade tooth stays submerged until activated by wrong-way traffic. Only then is the spiked tooth deployed, puncturing the tire of the offending vehicle. The SINGRAY is ideal for airport parking lots, parking garages, rental car agencies, and ground transportation where large amounts of pedestrian traffic exist.

Automatic vehicle identification access control systems

TransCore’s SmartPass 4 is a series of fully integrated, self-contained 915 MHz wireless radio frequency identification (RFID) readers that are specifically targeted at high-performance applications in parking, security access, electronic vehicle registration (EVR) and traffic management. For compatibility with existing security systems, SmartPass 4 can read half-frame and full-frame ATA tags and Wiegand formatted tags and identification cards.

Radio receivers – access control systems

LiftMaster Passport technology is an evolutionary step in the creation of a simpler, more effective method of managing the entrances within a gated community or commercial environment. Until now, property managers have had to manage transmitters for the main gate, transmitters for the private residences, and even transmitters for parking entrances. This is cumbersome and costly. With our Passport technology, residential and commercial property management is now simplified by an innovative single-transmitter solution.

Card readers

Proximity Readers, compatible with the PXL-500P tiger Controller are a family of readers that give superior performance in slick, small, attractive packages. Designed to mount on a window, door frame or wall, gang box mount.


MMTC switches allows for controlled access with its exterior surface mount. With the option of one or two button open/close secure access can be insured in a parking lot, parking garage, or employee only area.

Communication devices – access control systems

The LEF system can be designed to meet a wide variety of communication needs, depending on the type of facility and the communication requirements. Any combination of master, sub, and door stations can be intermixed up to the system’s capacity.

This is an ideal system for gate / entry, and many commercial / industrial applications. Where communication and access control is needed at remote locations, the LEF can serve as an electronic security guard, allowing access to authorized people only.
