Predator Tyre Killer
pdfmini DOWNLOAD THIS DATASHEET

Effective one–way traffic control, enhanced with the traffic calming effect of a speed ramp. A simple and reliable, vehicle operated mechanical system. Simple and quick installation onto concrete and most asphalt road construction with no excavation required. AMC are one of the leading tyre killer suppliers in the UK.

Predator Tyre Killer

The Predator units are available in 1m and 0.5m lengths – single units are joined together to form the road width coverage required. For special applications longer length tyre killer products can be supplied to meet Clients specific requirements.

The teeth have a spring return system, plus a separate sprung control system allowing the angle of the teeth to move to ensure that the optimal angle of attack is available for the type of vehicles being controlled. For example the tyres of large trucks require a different angle of penetration to that of cars.


The units are finished as powder coated yellow with the 'teeth' and rotating mechanism galvanised to ensure long life. Other colours are available to order if looking to buy tyre killer products.

The Predator can be supplied with a sloping 'end' unit, 250mm long, which is attached as an alternative to the standard square end. There are no tyre killer spikes in the 'end' unit.


The tyre Killer unit is supplied in two parts, the base unit which is secured to the road surface, plus the cover plate which conceals the base plate road fixings from view. The cover plate is easily removed and replaced should the need arise. The Predator Tyre Killer can be provided with a lock down feature to allow temporary two way traffic control. Predator is designed to meet British Highway Agency tyre killer manufacturers axle loading requirements.

The standard form of fixing is bolting down to concrete, or for good quality asphalt surfaces a construction adhesive can be used. Where the asphalt/tarmac road condition is suspect then a concrete strip would need to be constructed across the paving to which the units can be bolted.
