The SPTT Manually Retractable Bollard has a unique double retractable design which ensures smooth operation and acts as a depth saving feature.
Most impact tested retractable bollards have a foundation depth of around 1,500mm, the SPTT, on the other hand, can be installed with a depth of just 900mm - less than a meter. As well as acting as a depth saving feature, the double retractable design ensures smooth operation.
The SPTT has been impact tested in accordance with BSI PAS 68, successfully withstanding a 7,500kg vehicle travelling at 64kph (40mph) all while achieving less than a meter penetration. While it is based on the automatic SPTT, the manually operable model is controlled through the simple use of a hand-held battery drill or a manual hand crank.
This means that the SPTT requires no electricity or hydraulics to raise and lower the bollard, making it ideal for remote sites with limited access to an electricity supply. As an added benefit, we estimate that the total saving for a manual system to be up to 50% of a completely automated one.
The bollard comes in a black sherardized finish as standard, however, we can also supply the bollard vinyl wrapped to any specific RAL colour or design to meet your site's aesthetics.
