Faced with the recurrent threat of vehicular attacks municipal governments are increasingly forced to implement defensive measures to effectively secure public places and deliver peace of mind to their community. Since our bollards are the ideal solution to successfully protect any kind of access point against such horrific attacks with the possibility of temporary or regular entry depending on the selected type of bollard we relentlessly strive to enhance our bollard portfolio enabling us to provide holistic product offerings for our customers. We are therefore pleased to introduce our new optional height compensation for removable bollards M30 and M50.
Our removable bollard consists of a concreted-in base support and a detachable blocking element. The blocking element is fastened to the base support by means of fastening screws at the foundation level. For this reason, the bollard must be installed with a circular area around its blocking element which is to be filled with removable material such as sand, gravel or pavement stones (instead of finished floor level material such as bitumen) to permit access to the fastening screws for the removal of blocking element.
The employment of the new height compensation facilitates quick, unobstructed and clean access to the fastening screws through removal of its cover plates. The cover plates are mounted to the height compensation using theft resistant screws to prevent unauthorised tampering with the bollard.
Once the blocking element has been removed the height compensation can be fitted with an optional blind plate providing complete coverage of all components at finished floor level for unhindered passage of pedestrians, bicycles as well as vehicles.
Removable bollards are ideally suited for blocking the perimeter and/or roadway(s) of public places to counter hostile vehicular intrusion attempts for the duration of special events attracting large crowds. After the mass event the blocking elements can be removed and stored away until they are needed again.
