What Are Automatic Bollards?

Automatic Bollards are used to prevent unauthorised access to business premises as they are fitted with sensors which cause them to rise and fall when they detect movement.

They are ideal for controlling traffic flow in and out of designated areas and can be used as a security tool to prevent vehicle theft as they provide secure perimetre protection around chosen areas. 

At Breezemount, our Automatic Bollards are hydraulically powered which means they are powered by the controlled transmission of a pressurised fluid which converts into a mechanical output. A series of bollards can raise and lower together in one sequence or you can have two separate lanes operating independently for entry and exit. 

Our experienced inhouse installation team can also provide a full service and after sales care.

How Do Our Automatic Bollards Work?

As mentioned above, the automatic bollards at Breezemount are hydraulically powered. This means that they use an in-compressible liquid that is pushed up within an internal cylinder to raise them up. 

Hydraulically powered bollards traditionally feature the highest amount of force making them at least 25 times greater than a pneumatically powered bollard system.

Advantages Of Installing Automatic Bollards

There are many advantages associated with installing automatic bollards in your premises, some of which include:

  • Extra security: As mentioned above, automatic bollards provide extra protection to your premises or home as they stop unwanted vehicles entering your property and prevent potential theft from occurring if they are installed at an exit.
  • Added safety: Due to the obstruction automatic bollards cause before they are lowered, it means drivers cannot speed coming up to an exit or areas where they are installed. This means there is less likelihood of an accident or damage occurring to your building as drivers are more likely to be driving slow in areas where automatic bollards are installed. 
  • Convenient to use: Compared to other types of bollards, automatic bollards are easier to use as they don’t require any manual operation to control them. This means they are able to operate themselves without any intervention which reinforces how they add safety to your premises or home.
