Efficient manual traffic barrier

CENTURION CENTINEL manual traffic barrier


If the requirement is to cordon off a parking lot or entrance to a housing estate where a manned guard is always present, then the CENTINEL manual traffic barrier is a perfect cost-effective answer.

The CENTINEL is available with 3, 4.5 and 6 metre boom pole lengths. Using an internal spring the CENTINEL avoids the use of unsightly weights to counterbalance the boom pole. This results in a particularly compact and aesthetically pleasing barrier befitting the entrance to any up-market installation.

When we designed the CENTINEL manual traffic barrier, we had the user in mind. After all, just because it's a manual traffic barrier doesn't mean that you have to do all of the work!

Main features

  • Internal spring counterbalance
    This innovative system contributes both to the CENTINEL's undeniably attractive slimline look and - most importantly - makes raising and lowering a very nearly automated action.
  • Professional, compact appearance
    Sleek and slender, the CENTINEL is a looker and will blend in seamlessly with the aesthetic of any modern business park. It might even receive a few amorous wolf-whistles from the other parking equipment!
  • Comfortable operating handle
    You don't need alligator hide on your hands for you to conveniently and comfortably operate the CENTURION CENTINEL. The actuating handle is designed for comfortable and easy handling of the boom pole. 
  • Simple locking system
    But what if there's heavy traffic flow? Will the hapless guard need to stand there keeping the pole raised until every muscle and sinew aches? Not with the CENTINEL manual traffic barrier installed! To secure the pole in the raised or lowered position, simply turn the convenient, easy-to-use thumbwheel.
  • Strong and durable
    The CENTINEL will willingly submit to the operator's touch, but its incredibly robust construction ensures that it will firmly stand its ground against the elements.
