    How automatic bollards can benefit your commercial business


    We’ve been supplying bollards for a long time here at Bollard Security, all designed with a focus on robust integrity and flawless aesthetics. We specialise in the supply, installation and maintenance of automatic rising bollard systems, so you can rely on us to provide you with the best service on the market.

    Automatic bollards have always been a major part of our offering, providing a convenient way to control access to areas like industrial estates, commercial complexes, and other potentially sensitive areas. They provide businesses like yours with an effective method of calming traffic, as well as effective protection from potential intruders.

    So, let’s get into a few of the ways our automatic bollards can benefit your commercial business.

    Traffic calming measure

    Automatic bollards are a sleek and convenient way of controlling the amount of traffic going in and out of your premises. By restricting vehicle access with automatic bollards, not only do you effectively deter any potential trespassers from attempting entry to your premises, you also protect pedestrians inside the boundaries from the risk of sustaining an injury by walking through a heavily trafficked area. By implementing automatic bollards into your perimeter security, you can also minimise the risk of over-crowding your premises, which works wonders for potentially dangerous spaces like warehouses or loading bays.

    Provide effective security

    Automatic bollards also provide substantial security benefits, especially since just their presence alone can be a fantastic way of deterring potential intruders. They work as a brilliant deterrent against any potential vehicle thieves, providing a solid barrier that will stop even the most determined crooks from poaching a member of your fleet. Many of our more industrious models also come with anti ram-raid classification, and are specifically designed to withstand significant impact from vehicles. So, should anyone attempt to make a forced entry onto your property, you can be sure that our automatic bollards will hold firm.

    Our automatic bollards come in a range of sizes and specifications to suit any need, here are a couple of our personal favourites.

    Our top picks for automatic bollards

    Intellipost Automatic Bollard – this simple, but smart bollard is the only fully automatic security bollard in the world that can be installed without wires! It comes with a rechargeable battery pack that will work for 45 days before requiring another charge. These bollards come with a range of handy features like pre-programmed timed raising/lowering, automatic raising/lowering on the approach of your vehicle, and push notifications to your phone to alert you of a raised post when driving away. They’re fantastic value for money and don’t require any external control unit, cables, ducting, or routing. What’s not to love?

    Xpass 3030/1200SS K12 (Crash Rated) Hydraulic Bollard – this is a serious bollard. To start with, it has been crash-test certified by an independent body according to standards PAS 68 and IWA14-1 (equivalent to American standard “K12”), and can withstand an attempted ram raid or terrorist attack from a 7,200kg vehicle travelling at 80 kph. As well as being spectacularly strong, they also come with an emergency fast operation option, which decreases the rising time of the bollard from 5.3 seconds to 1.5 seconds. The Xpass can also be operated via a key fob, from your smartphone, or from an Intercom, and all of our automatic bollards come complete as standard with a Perseo CBD dedicated control panel which manages up to 4 bollards in parallel, which comes with a programming menu on the display.
