ATG Access reinforces product range with world's strongest bollard
ATG Access, a leading designer and manufacturer of road blockers, bollards and barriers, has continued to experience growing success thanks to the popularity of its varied and ever-expanding product range.
Consistently at the forefront of innovation and security engineering, ATG Access has developed the world's strongest rising bollard, designed to protect critical infrastructure against potential vehicle attacks.
The SP1200 high security bollard is the only bollard to have been impact tested with a 30,000 kg vehicle travelling at 50 miles per hour. During the test, the single, automatic, SP1200 bollard remained intact after impact, and would not have allowed a second vehicle to pass.
The bollards are designed to be serviceable quickly by just one person, making it easy to ensure the optimum level of security is maintained at all times. Pedestrian permeable and able to cope with a large number of vehicle admissions per hour, the SP1200 is particularly ideal for high-risk sites with heavy traffic flow and footfall. The bollards can also be fitted with an additional 'emergency fast operation' function, meaning they can be deployed in a matter of seconds in the event of an emergency.
For larger entrances with fewer admissions required per hour, ATG Access's Cityscape Gate (pictured below) is one of its most popular products and has been fitted at a number of high-profile sites including Manchester Piccadilly Railway Station and within the City of Westminster streetscape.
The swing gate requires just 300 mm of foundation depth for installation and is suitable for protecting entrances from four to six meters wide. The innovative structure successfully halted a 7,500kg truck travelling at 40mph during a PAS 68 impact test.
Manually opened and closed, and secured in the closed position by an automated or manual locking mechanism, the Cityscape Gate is an effective way of preventing access to unauthorised vehicles and pedestrians. The gate can also be used within a tiger-trap security design if required, so that vehicles can be searched before entry for ultra-secure sites.
Gavin Hepburn, managing director of ATG Access, said: "The security needs at different sites can vary hugely depending on a range of factors, so it's important that we are able to offer customers a wide range of solutions to match. Regardless of their application, all of our products are designed and manufactured to the highest industry standards, with a particular focus on quality, serviceability and maintenance."
