Automatic, anti-terrorist bollards for perfect premises protection

clip_image002We see bollards in use almost everywhere we go. However the types of bollards that are used to restrict traffic in areas with high volumes of people, such as train stations, airports and football stadiums, are quite different to automatic bollards which serve a more security focused purpose.

Automatic rising bollards are steel structures which rise from the ground to control access and prevent intrusion on a site where entry needs to be restricted for security reasons.

A common reason for installing automatic rising bollards is to help secure car parks, which are often a prime target for vandals and criminals.

Equally, there has been an increase in private home owners installing automatic bollards in their driveways which can act as a strong deterrent against would-be burglars.

From the 1990’s onwards there has been a rise in the use of bollards for commercial security purposes. This means not only using bollards to restrict access to an area but also for anti-ramming and anti-terrorism purposes. The purpose is to resist impact from vehicles for government buildings and large organisations that might be at risk from terrorism. Gateway also provides a range of anti-terrorism bollards designed to meet this need.

Our GA7276H Automatic bollard employs a simple yet effective electro hydraulic mechanism which ensures smooth and efficient movement of the bollard. It is also fitted with obstacle detection sensors, a crown of LED lights, acoustic warning signals and a manual override facility.
