    How security bollards reduce the risk of potential terror attacks

    security bollard

    Terrorism is an issue we take extremely seriously here at Bollard Security. With the UK terror threat level currently at a 3/5 rating, which constitutes a substantial threat, it’s vital you do all that you can to ensure that your business, customers and employees are protected in the event of an attack. Locations which are most at risk from terror attacks include: embassies, airports, nuclear facilities, stadiums and high profile governmental buildings.

    Here in the UK, you need to ensure that you’re implementing measures to protect crowds of people and busy streets against the risk of vehicle ramming and VBIED (vehicle-borne improvised explosive device) attacks, as this is one of the most common threats that we’re faced with here in the context of terrorist activity. That’s where we can help, by providing you with the ideal security solution to help you mitigate these threats.

    All of our anti-ram raid telescopic bollards have been awarded the Sold Secure and Secured by Design accreditations, highlighting the exceptional standard of security they provide. Here’s how we’ve achieved this.

    How our anti-ram raid bollards protect your business

    Our anti-ram raid bollards are specifically designed to protect properties in a wide range of settings, and they’re extremely well-suited to areas that require a high level of protection, including commercial warehouses, industrial sites, shopping centre car parks and other public spaces like the ones we mentioned above. Anti-ram telescopic bollards are strong, highly visible and provide an excellent level of security.

    Plus, many of our anti-ram raid bollards have an ‘assisted lift’ feature, which effectively acts as a semi-automatic gas-operated actuated ram, reducing the operating weight of the post up by to 70% and making it even easier to deploy. Available in a basic galvanised, or powder coated finish, our anti-ram raid telescopic bollards can be personalised with a powder coated RAL colour of your choice.

    Anti-ram raid bollards are one option, but for the best protection results, we’d highly recommend one of our high security fixed bollards.

    Our top picks for anti-terrorism bollards

    Our high security fixed bollards offer the most reliable long-term security solution to attempted VBIED in your workplace. They provide a greater level of security compared to standard steel static bollards due to the overall sizes, wall thickness and break-in resistance of the bollards. Depending on your security requirements, you may wish to consider these alongside our anti-ram road bollards. Here are a couple of examples:

    SP100 PAS68 Telescopic Bollard – this affordable, dynamic high-security solution comfortably meets the requirements of the BSI PAS 68 impact test – successfully stopping a 3,500kg vehicle at 48kph (30mph), making it the ideal choice for most perimeter security requirements. It’s manually operable and requires no power, ducting or rebar to operate. Plus, it comes with a lift-assist mechanism as standard, reducing the bollard’s lifting weight by up to 60%.

    RANCH E 330/1200 (K12) HVM Fixed Bollard – a heavy duty security solution designed specifically for ‘hostile vehicle mitigation’ application. It’s more than suitable for protecting sensitive sites, and can be integrated into a suitable configuration to help provide the required high level of protection for a defined area. This is our top choice for reducing the risk posed to your business by terrorism.
