Bollard Systems create barriers for security protection. There is a range of bollards available which are ideal for car parks, protecting pedestrians from vehicles and also for preventing ram-raids and similar security precautions.
Bollards are constructed from steel, iron, concrete and strong plastics for strength and reliability. Steel bollards can be bolted or cemented firmly into the ground for permanent protection, bollards that can be removed or folded down flat when access is needed. Retractable bollards can be fully retracted into the ground when not being used.
Bollards are posts or barriers used to control vehicle access and provide physical security. Their purpose is to protect buildings, pedestrians, and other assets from vehicle-based threats, such as accidental collisions, theft, or terrorism.
In a security context, bollards can be used in several ways to secure a facility:
Vehicle access control: Bollards can be placed at entry points to control the flow of vehicles into a secure area. They can be set up in a way to allow only authorized vehicles to pass, while blocking or redirecting unauthorized vehicles.
Perimeter protection: Bollards can be used to create a physical barrier around a facility, protecting it from unwanted access by vehicles. They can be placed in a line around the perimeter or at strategic points, such as corners or near critical assets.
Pedestrian safety: Bollards can be placed around walkways, building entrances, and other pedestrian areas to protect people from accidental collisions with vehicles.
Anti-ram protection: Bollards can be designed and installed to withstand the impact of a vehicle, serving as a barrier to prevent ram-raids and other malicious attacks.
Rising bollards are a type of bollard that can be raised or lowered as needed to allow or block vehicle access. They are typically hydraulic or electro-mechanical in design and are controlled by an electronic system.
Automatic rising bollards offer several advantages over traditional, fixed bollards:
Flexibility: Rising bollards can be raised or lowered as needed, allowing for quick and convenient control of vehicle access.
Enhanced security: When in the raised position, rising bollards provide a formidable barrier that is difficult for unauthorized vehicles to breach.
Improved aesthetic: Unlike traditional bollards, rising bollards can be designed to blend in with their surroundings when in the lowered position, improving the appearance of the secure area.
Reduced maintenance: Rising bollards are typically designed for long-term use and require minimal maintenance, making them a cost-effective solution for vehicle access control.
