Security bollard range launched to significantly reduce crime rates
ATG Access, a leading British designer and manufacturer of road blockers, bollards and barriers, is helping to protect commercial properties and prevent ATM ram raid attacks with its leading security bollard range.
The 90 Square Bollard, available in fully retractable, lift-out, lift-assist, ot static versions, offers heavy duty, versatile security protection against potential vehicle attacks - making it suitable for industrial applications such as roller shutter door protection and commercial security.
The fully retractable model (height 670mm / diameter 90mm) comes with an option of installing a unique lift-assist mechanism which reduces the product's lifting weight by up to 60%.
The lift-out model is available for sites where there is insufficient room for digging a full depth foundation for the fully retractable model and vehicle access still needs to be restricted. The required foundation depth is reduced by 50% compared to the fully retractable design, making it suitable for areas where it is not possible to install a full outer casing.
The static model of the 90 Square Bollard is also available to protect infrastructures where vehicle access is totally prohibited such as glass shop fronts or to protect ATM machines - given ATM attacks are rising 22% each year.
All versions are supplied with a galvanised finish and a vertical yellow reflective strip as standard or can be nylon coated in various colours to match the site's aesthetics or corporate colours.
For an aestically pleasing, more imposing deterrent to unauthorised vehicles or ram raid attacks, ATG Access's 114/670 heavy duty bollard is hugely popular and has been fitted at a number of high-profile sites including leading jewellery shops, football grounds and industrial sites.
Insurance company-recommended, the stainless steel bollard is stylishly designed with a greater wall thickness to be a durable perimeter protection solution for commercial security.
Gavin Hepburn, managing director of ATG Access, said: "Protecting a business from unwanted access or crime is essential for any business owner, so it's important that we are able to offer our customers a wide range of solutions for their requirements. As well as offering strength and robustness, aesthetics are also key for many. That's why all of our pioneering security products can be designed to suit exact site requirements to help tackle commercial property crime."
