These “USA Bollards” highly advanced unique surface mount design frangible (Shock absorbing, energy absorbing) flexible rebounding steel bollards, that bend and give slightly, instead of simply knock down causing concrete footing or excessive vehicle damage.
These “Australian Bollards” highly advanced unique surface mount design frangible (Shock absorbing, energy absorbing) flexible rebounding steel bollards offering a passively safe option to assist to save lives and minimize serious injury, when susceptible to sudden collision forces at a range of speeds.
This is because they may be specifically designed to be of minimum mass whilst being flexible, yielding and distorting on impact instead of breakaway, to be able to present a minimum hazard to the colliding vehicle when struck. Thus Lessing the chance of injury to the occupants, protecting the car driver and passengers and reducing harm to the car it such, as what would otherwise occurs with rigid roadside features.
Their particular Polly insert, enables the bollard to bend and return to the upright position in a way that reduces the risk of breakaway debris, offering added safety to motorist, pedestrians or nearby workers alike as a result of energy absorbing action in the bollards.
Maximum Building and assets protection for building designers and property managers, whilst minimizing and reducing damage to foundations as well as pre- and post-tension concrete structures, vehicles, the bollards themselves along with their costly repairs, whilst still being easy to install and keep connected to concrete by way of concrete screw anchors at the base of the bollard covers to bend and yield typically prior to the anchors take out the concrete foundation.
They are ideal for multi-level parking garages and structural commercial concrete buildings with heavy traffic and forklift truck operations that require asset protection for his or her utilities, loading docks, toll gates, aisle ways, mall, parking lots, warehouses racks and equipment and walls structures to block and absorb impacts.
Retractable bollards are equipped for medium security applications like traffic and parking control. They feature an easy, trouble free operation proven over many years of installation. The retractable bollard is now provided by a selection of two different materials. The BR900 includes a 5mm thick mild steel bollard which is galvanised before being powder coated in hi-vis safety yellow with two reflective bands. The BR900-SS includes a 3.05mm thick 316 marine grade stainless-steel bollard. Because this model is ideal for ssqhnf architectural applications it will not include reflective bands.
