auto bollardAnti-ramming automatic bollards

Operated either pneumatically or hydraulically, the B3000 series offers the highest standard of anti-ramming and security protection. Taking as little as 1.5 seconds to reach the fully raised position, these bollards can be used in the most demanding locations where high-volume traffic flows must be managed.

Security

The B3000 bollards are often combined with light arm barriers to provide maximum deterrence and safety. With a hard-wearing stainless steel finish, the bollards are engineered to meet the DOS and PAS standards for anti-ramming bollards and are used extensively to protect sensitive government and military locations as well as civilian compounds.

We offer a wide range of bollards and mechanisms and work with our clients to ensure that the optimum combination is selected according to the security requirements, the volume of traffic, site conditions and maintenance, reliability and environmental considerations.

BGI are proud to announce that their B5000 bollard has been PAS 68 certified, stopping a 7.5 ton truck travelling at 80 km/hr. For more details, please see here.

Mechanism

Three options are available to power the B3000 series of automatic bollards.  Pneumatic, hydraulic or electro-hydraulic. This choice of solution depends on the operating environment and requirements of the application.

With a patent-pending mechanism for releasing the internal piston, the bollards can be maintained without disassembly and if necessary, the entire unit can be removed without the need for digging out the foundations.

Special consideration has been given to drainage in the design to ensure that extreme conditions of ice, dust or water do not affect the operation of the bollard.

  • Pneumatic

When powered by BGI's innovative pneumatic system, the bollards can be operated at very high speeds and when combined with a light arm, air pressure can be used to simply and accurately synchronize with other elements in the system. The use of air pressure also significantly reduces the wear and tear on the components and provides years of maintenance free use.

  • Electro-Hydraulic

For independent, self-contained operation, it is sometimes desirable to use electro-hydraulic units installed in each of the bollards.  In this case, the bollards require an electrical feed only and the entire operation of the piston and hydraulic mechanism are encased in a closed unit.

  • Electric

An internal electric mechanism can be used to power the bollards. This powerful mechanism is appropriate for 700mm bollards and provides smooth, silent and trouble free operation.

The automatic bollards are powered by a pneumatic or electro-hydraulic mechanism.

Air Pressure:

Pneumatic requires 5-6 ATM of air pressure supplied from a compressor with a storage tank.

Electrical requirement:

110 - 240 VAC (compressor and electro-hydraulic)

Options:

  • Remote air tank capacity indicator (pneumatic)
  • LED lights

A range of advanced safety features are available to ensure peace of mind and avoid unintended operation:

  • Inductive loop vehicle detectors installed in the road.
  • Photo-electric cells to further ensure that the bollards are not in motion while something is passing.
  • LED lights on the bollards and traffic lights by the road to indicate when it is safe/unsafe to pass or when the bollards are in motion.
  • Sirens to indicate that the bollards are in motion.
  • Speed bumps to slow down approaching traffic.
