High-security bollards are one of the most effective ways to protect members of the public, employees and property from damage by vehicles, whether deliberate attacks or accidental damage. Following recent high-profile attacks by drivers of hostile vehicles on pedestrians in city centres, urban designers are increasingly turning to the installation of security bollards as an effective and unobtrusive way of making busy pedestrian areas safe.
With a range of designs to suit any location and the expert knowledge of a professional team of engineers, Advance Systems security bollards can provide you with effective, 24/7 HVM (hostile vehicle mitigation) protection.
Protecting the General Public
While security for pedestrians is very much in the news at the moment, high-security bollards are also frequently installed in Ireland to prevent damage to businesses, financial institutions, iconic buildings and other property. Whether they are used to ensure the smooth flow of foot traffic or to prevent cars entering a certain area, bollards are an aesthetically pleasing solution that does not take up too much space.
BSI PAS 68 is the benchmark of the security industry benchmark for hostile vehicle mitigation: our range of PAS 68 bollards are all constructed from heavy duty materials to provide stringent levels of security against unauthorised vehicle access.
Security bollards for every situation
At Advance Systems, our engineers have designed a range of security bollards suitable for many different situations.
The SB970CR Scimitar Bollard offers a very high level of security from any unauthorised vehicle access into restricted areas, whether from a driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol or something more sinister. Designed to withstand an impact of more than 1800 KJ, the SB970CR Scimitar offers reliable yet discreet protection from vehicle impact and even attacks by a vehicle loaded with improvised explosives.
Its unobtrusive design blends well with the urban environment and the high-grade materials used in its construction make it the ideal way to protect historic buildings, high-security establishments and infrastructure such as hospitals, airports and railway stations.
The sleek styling of Scimitar PAS 68 tested Static Bollards makes them an excellent choice to protect areas wherever public perception and aesthetic values are a consideration. Designed to withstand impacts under the BSI PAS 68 criteria, they can be finished in stainless steel, painted or decorative finishes to tone with many different architectural settings; these versatile bollards are also offered in a removable version.
For areas where a deep foundation is not an option, take a look at the Avon SSF100 Resilience Bollards. With a structural foundation depth of just 100mm, the SSF100 offers high levels of protection against aggressive vehicle attack without the necessity for deeper foundations.
The SSF100 offers an effective security solution and has been tested to the IWA 14-1:2013 impact testing standard: it can withstand the impact from a vehicle traveling at 40 mph (64 kph).
This bollard can be installed with the minimum of excavation into a variety of surface finishes including paving slabs, crushed stone, tarmac and concrete and comes in a variety of optional finishes including stainless steel and paint, allowing it to be customised to fit in with any civic environment.
