Problem Solved: Law Enforcement and the Scorpion Wheel Clamp
At Barrier Group we take problem solving seriously - when others might be wiping their hands of your problems, we are just rolling up our sleeves.
In 2004, a local enforcement authority started investigating wheel clamps from all parts of the world.
They were looking for a product to impound vehicles whose owners had accumulated unpaid fines.
Their needs were quite specific; The clamp must
be easily used by both male and female officers,
be simple and quick to fit,
be able to accommodate a range of vehicles without damaging the vehicle or trim.
After a world-wide search for a wheel clamp to meet their requirements it was successful.
Enter, Barrier Group.
With only four months to conceive, design and manufacture a 'world first' wheel clamp, the task was huge. But we did it with mere hours to spare!
The Scorpion Wheel Clamp was created and named as such 'because when it latches on it doesn’t let go, and it has a nasty sting if threatened!'
The wheel clamp design meets all the requirements:
Fits a wide range of wheels without removing the wheel trims
Can be fitted to the side of any vehicles front or rear wheel
Robust construction to resist vandalism
Zinc plated to avoid corrosion
Reflective sign face for night visibility
Weighs 12.5kgs making it easy to carry and install
All parts pack neatly inside the wheel clamp
Easy storage and transport
Along with other State and Federal enforcement bodies, private operators are also benefiting from the Scorpion Wheel Clamp by immobilizing their trailers and caravans to avoid theft.
To this day, there are over 1000 units in service with law enforcement agencies across Australia.
