Impact tested, high security bollards protect critical national infrastructure from vehicle borne attacks. Installing bollards allows entrances, car parks, service areas and private roads to be accessible only by authorised vehicles but remain pedestrian permeable. ATG Automatic High Security Bollards are hydraulically operated, have been tested to a range of different IWA 14, PAS 68 & ASTM certifications and are available in a wide variety of aesthetic finishes.
ATG Access have developed many engineering capabilities over many years of developing innovative crash tested products. Engineering competencies have been used to address site specific security objectives. Core innovations such as ATG’s ability to build strong structures have also been utilised in alternative markets to the security market. ATG continue to listen to client requirements and strive to engineer news solutions to meet bespoke needs.
ATG Access have innovated and crash tested a number of unique barrier solutions. These barriers have been designed to work with entrances of varying widths and with different operational requirements. Products can be installed to secure an urban area, military base, headquarters or a stadium to name just a few different applications. All products have been engineered for a long life span and with serviceability in mind.
Fixed, high security bollards provide crash tested perimeter security to protect critical national infrastructure from a vehicle borne attack. A range of static bollards are available and have been certified to different security requirements with varying diameters. Aesthetic sleeves can be fitted over the high security bollard core to meet any specific design requirements. Alternatively, bollards can be integrated into street furniture items such as planters, lighting columns, flag poles and benches to avoid a cluttered street scene.
Removable high security bollards can be installed within areas requiring very occasional vehicle access. To remove static or shallow foundation fixed bollards can be very disruptive and also costly to reinstate. Installing a removable, shallow foundation bollard takes away this disruption and facilitates very occasional access for annual events. Removable bollards can be fitted with an aesthetic sleeve to ensure that they are identical to static bollards fitting into a holistic physical security design.
ATG Access are the only supplier to have designed and tested a manually retractable security bollard range. Manually retractable, high security bollards are operated either by hand or using a hand-held battery drill depending on the model. No electricity or hydraulics are required to raise or lower products. Ideal for remote sites with little or limited access to an electricity supply or to secure gateways which are used very occasionally. ATG estimates that the total saving for a manually operated system is up to 50% of an automatic system.
Automatic road blockers secure entry and exit lanes and can act as final denial barriers when integrated into a wider security system. Road blockers can be supplied with a width span of up to 5 meters. An emergency fast operation function is available for most models allowing a blocker to be deployed in under 2 seconds. ATG also offers unique, surface mounted blocker systems which can be utilised as part of a temporary event security strategy. All blockers are certified to IWA 14, PAS 68 or ASTM.
High security, static bollards have been designed with a unique shallow foundation base. This not only minimises excavation disruption when installing perimeter protection, it also avoids the costly redirection of service networks. Shallow foundation bases can be supplied in a variety of different shapes allowing products to be installed around corners and existing street furniture items. All foundation bases are laser cut with a unique part number which matches layout drawings supplied to clients. This aids straightforward installation.
Some critical national infrastructure applications are built on a suspended slab foundation. This type of foundation is difficult to install security products within due to limited depth and also damaging the integrity of the slab. ATG Access is the only physical security manufacturer to have a fully tested and certified solution to secure suspended slab applications. Surface mounted products are also available which can be used to secure areas temporarily during events or heightened security alerts.
