The Gladiator Shallow Mount Bollard has been tested to both the PAS 68 and ASTM standards, successfully withstanding a 7,500kg vehicle at 80kph (50mph).
With its shallow mount design, the Gladiator can be installed within a foundation depth of just 203mm. This allows it to be installed in sites where more traditional fixed bollards can't, such as urban areas with dense networks of underground services.
The Gladiator is designed for hostile vehicle mitigation and in particular to protect against potential high-velocity attacks. It has been tested to both the British BSI PAS 68 specification and the American ASTM F3016 standard, halting a 7,500kg vehicle at 80kph (50mph) in both cases.
The Gladiator uses our unique shallow mount technology which minimises the time and disruption need to install the bollards. This technology gives incredible flexibility in where the bollards can be installed as he shallow foundation base units can be supplied in a multitude of shapes allowing the bollards to fit around corners or existing street furniture such as benches. To make installation even more straightforward, the base plates are laser cut with directional arrows and part numbers which can be cross-referenced to site layout drawings.
The Gladiator comes hot-dip galvanised as standard to give it added protection against corrosion, as when it comes to security the longevity of the solution is vital. It also comes supplied with two reflective yellow bands to help ensure the visibility of the bollard to pedestrians and drivers alike. If you're in need of a specific look to match the aesthetic of the site we can paint the bollard to any RAL colour you need or fit it with a decorative sleeve.
