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 high security automatic bollard has been tested to the newly introduced, international IWA 14 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to be installed as a completely new product or to be retrofitted into many existing foundation systems, there are many out of date legacy products installed which are increasingly difficult to maintain. ATG Access has designed the perfect solution to this problem. 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 the site disruption 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 bollard.
This product has been designed at the request of one such customer who had a set of automatic bollards which were no longer able to be serviced at a critical security entrance. Since the request, they have replaced all of their automatic bollards, successfully upgraded and replaced with the new Stealth 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.
This product really is remarkable in many ways as well as being incredibly strong and will remove the headache of costly and disruptive automatic bollard replacement.
