Automatic Bollards

We are proud to be leading installers of automatic bollards in Huddersfield and the surrounding areas since 1993.

There are various types of security bollards available to provide physical security and control access to specific areas. Here are some common types:

  1. Fixed Bollards: Fixed bollards are immovable and permanently installed in place. They provide a high level of security and act as a visual deterrent to unauthorised vehicle entry. Fixed bollards are commonly used in pedestrian areas, building entrances, and critical infrastructure locations.
  2. Removable Bollards: Removable bollards offer flexibility as they can be easily installed or removed as needed. They are typically secured with a locking mechanism and provide temporary access control. Removable bollards are suitable for areas requiring occasional vehicle access or emergency situations.
  3. Retractable Bollards: Retractable bollards can be raised or lowered to control access selectively. They are operated using a mechanical or hydraulic system, allowing authorised vehicles to pass while preventing unauthorised entry. Retractable bollards are commonly used in parking lots, private driveways, and restricted access areas.
  4. Automatic Bollards: Automatic bollards are motorized and can be controlled remotely or integrated with access control systems. They offer quick and convenient access control, automatically lowering or rising to allow or restrict vehicle passage. Automatic bollards are commonly used in high-security areas and locations that require frequent access changes.
  5. Crash-Rated Bollards: Crash-rated bollards are designed to withstand high-impact collisions, providing maximum security against vehicle ramming attacks. They are constructed with robust materials and engineered to meet specific crash-test ratings. Crash-rated bollards are typically installed in high-security installations, government buildings, and critical infrastructure sites.

The selection of security bollards depends on the specific security requirements, traffic control needs, and the level of impact resistance desired. Consulting with security experts or professionals in the field can help determine the most appropriate type of security bollards for a given location.

  1. Perimeter Protection: Security bollards act as a robust physical barrier to protect vulnerable areas, such as buildings, pedestrian zones, and public spaces, from unauthorised vehicle entry, accidental collisions, and intentional ramming attacks.
  2. Vehicle Mitigation: Security bollards provide a means of mitigating the impact of vehicle-related incidents, including accidental crashes or deliberate acts of terrorism. They can prevent vehicles from gaining high speeds or reaching sensitive areas, minimising potential damage and harm.
  3. Access Control: By strategically placing security bollards, access points can be controlled and restricted to authorised vehicles only. They help in managing traffic flow and ensuring that only permitted vehicles enter designated areas.
  4. Visual Deterrence: The presence of security bollards acts as a visual deterrent to potential threats. They send a clear message that unauthorised vehicle access is not permitted, discouraging individuals with malicious intent from attempting to breach security measures.
  5. Flexibility and Adaptability: Security bollards come in various designs, sizes, and materials, allowing for customisation based on specific security needs and site requirements. They can be permanent, removable, or retractable, providing flexibility for different access control scenarios.
  6. Emergency Access: While security bollards restrict unauthorised entry, they can be designed to allow emergency vehicle access when needed. Specialised bollards, such as emergency access or crash-rated bollards, can quickly retract or be removed to facilitate the passage of emergency response vehicles.
  7. Low Maintenance: Security bollards are typically designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions and require minimal maintenance. They are built to be durable, resistant to corrosion, and capable of withstanding impact, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements.
  8. Aesthetics: Security bollards can be aesthetically designed to blend with the surrounding environment without compromising their security function. They can be customised to match the architectural style of the area, maintaining a visually appealing appearance.

Overall, security bollards provide an effective and versatile solution for enhancing safety, controlling access, and protecting critical infrastructure. They offer peace of mind, contribute to public safety, and can be tailored to meet the specific security requirements of different locations.
