For a fast and convenient solution at mobile checkpoints and a temporary barrier at crime scenes, the STAR Barrier provides an alternate solution to time-consuming concertina wire and simple traffic cones as a traffic barrier. Each STAR is equipped with three steel spikes engineered to stop a threat vehicle and is attached to other STARs using cabling. Stringing multiple STARs together forms an effective blockade at varying lengths to channel traffic through checkpoints. Avoid the hassle of ineffective road cones or complicated concertina wire. The lightweight and compact storage of the STAR Barrier makes it ideal for a fast checkpoint setup. When not in use, each STAR folds into a compact, uniform assembly for storage in its own case. Setup and breakdown of the STAR Barrier are achieved in just four steps and do not require special training or certification to deploy, like concertina wire.
