BOLLARDS are one of the only choices for pedestrian friendly protection from vehicle attack. They are simple yet strong barriers which may be fixed, removable, or telescopic. Different aesthetics may be applied through the use of various coatings and sleeves to allow the barriers to be part of the holistic design of the site. Simple applications such as kerbside bollards can provide safety to pedestrians from traffic. Automatic Bollards can safely operate in the pubic highway or outside building entrances to provide secure, low maintenance access control which can be integrated with stand alone, local network or large scale traffic or building management systems. Bollards are the perfect choice for TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT and they are the front-line defense against TERRORISM.
Crash- and attack-resistant bollards are used to protect military and governmental buildings and domestic structures and areas of higher security levels.
The definitions of safety, security, and perimeter security design are fluid concepts; that changing threat, vulnerability, and risk assessments for any one situation can require implementation of different design scenarios.
For instance, when security design codes and standards warrant shifts from a static to a more dynamic and fluid design. Because of their versatility bollards are important participants in changing security design.
Non-attack-resistant and attack-resistant bollards represent radically different safe/secure response conditions. Non-attack-resistant bollards are “perceived impediments to access.” Theirs is an “expectation of civility,” directed primarily at drivers with prescriptions for traffic control.
Traffic control, while not necessarily static in its design, adjusting as it often does to daily shifts in traffic patterns, nevertheless is predictable to those
who traverse the maze of cityscapes on a daily basis. With the expectation of traffic control, the issue and design of safe/secure is more predictable.
It’s civilized! And, accordingly, bollard configurations are more predictable.
BOLLARDS are extremely safe for pedestrians and provides much needed, strong vehicle deterrent. At the highest design level, high security bollards are capable of stopping cars and trucks at high speed to maintain a secure perimeter. For areas with very high pedestrian flow, bollards provide the best way to provide security with pedestrian permeability making them the first choice for entrance at airports, stadiums, skyscraper buildings and commercial areas to name just a few.
RETRACTABLE HYDRAULIC BOLLARDS, hydraulics provide the best method for raising retractable bollards. The hydraulic apparatus is small enough so that it won’t weaken the bollards but effective enough to quickly raise them when needed. The hydraulic systems can even be configured to raise the bollards individually.
RETRACTABLE HYDRAULIC BOLLARDS are perfect for all light security needs where a retractable option is necessary. From traffic control to limited access pathways, these bollard is the obvious choice for ease of use and economical, maintenance-free operation. The bollard lifts easily and locks into place and just as easily can be retracted for pedestrian safety.
Each retractable bollard can be embedded in concrete for simple and secure installations. The clean and versatile design is highly visible with consistent aesthetics that suit any modern building or landscape.
