Shield is the fastest-deploying, most rugged radar speed sign available – web-enabled for collecting data and remote management.

Shield 12 and Shield 15 radar speed signs lead the industry in quality and durability:

  • Simple, Universal Mounting:  One person can mount and deploy a Shield in minutes on pole, post, trailer or hitch. Permanent or portable mounting, it’s up to you. (See video on this page.)
  • Durable Construction: The Shield is extremely rugged and weatherproof, with welded aluminum enclosure, concealed mounting hardware, shatterproof Lexan and graffiti-resistant powder coat.
  • MUTCD Compliant: Meets the MUTCD minimum requirement of 12” digit size.
  • Amazing Battery Life / Flexible Power Options: Achieve up to several weeks of run time on a single charge. The dedicated compartment allows all-weather battery replacement. Accommodates almost any power source including Lithium battery, Integrated Solar, AC or trailer.
  • Remote Accessibility: Access and monitor the Shield radar speed sign from anywhere with an Internet connection using the ATS TraffiCloud web-based Remote Management Service.
  • Eliminate Data File Management: Upload data automatically, generate and share ready-made reports from computer or tablet. Easy-to-use interface with dashboard convenience.*requires TraffiCloud subscription
