The ATG Access VP Heavy Duty bollard has been successfully impact tested in accordance with PAS 68 certification to arrest a 1,500 kg vehicle at 32 kph.
Building on the success of the VP traffic range of bollard systems, this product has been designed to be identical to these original products apart from an increased wall thickness. This enables the VP Heavy Duty product to be retrofitted into any existing VP traffic system across the world and provide an area with anti-terrorist protection.
Multiple control options are available for this product, offering a versatile solution to access control across a variety of applications. The VP Heavy Duty comes with a system consisting of red and green indicator lights to instruct users when it is safe to pass through the system. Loops are installed in the ground to instruct the bollards to rise once a vehicle has passed and also to prevent bollards from rising underneath approaching vehicles.
A variety of control options are available depending on the client’s project specification such as sietag access, proximity card use or timed operations. This automatic bollard system is ideal for high profile areas and controlling access to key infrastructure sites with heavy pedestrian flow such as high streets or urban areas.
