FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do automatic bollards work?
Automatic bollards prevent access to unauthorised vehicles by rising and lowering into the ground using hydraulic equipment. There are a wide range of access control systems to operate bollards, such as: automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), intercoms, GSM/mobile phone, push buttons, time-controlled systems or traffic lights.
How are bollards installed?
Standard static bollards, manual retractable bollards and manually removable bollards are mounted in a foundation concrete base. Depending on the design, some bollards are shallow or deep mounted. High security crash rated bollards have complex civil works and will need to be installed by a certified installer to comply with PAS69. To ensure full safety compliance, automatic bollards should also be installed by a certified installer and serviced regularly to keep them running efficiently.
Do bollards stop cars?
Bollards are a great deterrent and will often prevent theft at commercial premises. At Breezemount, we offer a range of high-quality, cost-effective bollards that are recommended by insurance companies, and ideal for lining pavements and controlling access. However, this design of bollard will not stop a moving car upon impact. Only impact tested bollards can stop a moving vehicle. Crash rated security bollards are engineered to withstand substantial impact. When choosing high security bollards, there are several variants available that have been impact tested to comply with either PAS68 or IWA14. Depending on the client’s risk profile, security bollards can be fixed, automatic, manually retractable or temporary for events. There’s also the possibility of traditional, deep or shallow foundations in a multitude of finishes.
