ATG Access has has designed an automatic, high security bollard with integral hydraulics which can be installed as a new installation or be fitted into an existing, impact tested bollard foundation.
The Stealth Automatic Bollard has been tested to the newly introduced, international IWA 14 impact test standard with a 7,200 kg truck travelling at 80 kph (50 mph) and achieved less than 1 metre of penetration.
Designed to be installed as a completely new product or to be retrofitted into existing foundation systems, the Stealth Automatic Bollard is an ideal solution for replacing out of date legacy rising bollard systems which are increasingly difficult to maintain.
In the past, the replacement of automatic bollard systems would traditionally have required the removal of an excessive, reinforced concrete foundation and rebar which would not only cost an extortionate amount of money but also cause site disruption which would leave an access point unsecured for months at a time. ATG Access’s retrofit option has been engineered to be fully serviceable and the physical conversion takes less than one day per automatic bollard, making it ideal for quickly replacing systems at high security sites.
The Stealth Automatic Bollard was originally designed at the request of one such customer who had a set of rising bollards which were no longer able to be serviced at a critical security entrance. Since the request, they have replaced all of their rising bollards, successfully upgraded and replaced with the new Stealth Automatic Bollard.
One of the client’s primary concerns was the poor corrosion protection afforded to the existing bollard foundation. ATG Access utilised a technology developed for the North Sea oil industry to protect the foundations for another twenty plus years. The Stealth Automatic Bollard really is remarkable in many ways, as well as being incredibly strong, the Stealth will remove the headache of costly and disruptive automatic bollard replacement.
ATG Access is the leading designer and manufacturer of high security crash tested automatic bollards, with all of our impact tested systems meeting either PAS 68 or IWA 14 certification.
