Automatic Rising Bollards

We have a large range of automatic rising bollards that can be installed in a variety of different applications. They are a robust and high security method of preventing vehicular access. Our range includes automatic bollards with built-in lights that flash during operation, and can extend to a height of over 900mm in just 4 seconds, depending on your requirements.

One or more bollards can be installed and operated together or individually.

Automatic rising bollards provide a neat solution to preventing the passage of vehicles without the requirement for gates and have a minimal impact on the environment for town centres and historic sites. Automatic rising bollards are designed to keep traffic away from sensitive areas, delivering aesthetically pleasing traffic control devices that disappear flush with ground level.

The bollard can be set either in the raised or lowered positions by default. Operation can be via any of the following methods: radio remote control, ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition), tag module attached to specific vehicles, digital keypad, or an audio/video intercom to manned offices anywhere across the globe.

Several methods of safety are incorporated into the system as standard.

  • Residential & Commercial Bollards
  • Traffic Lane Control & Traffic Limitation
  • Control of Pedestrianised Areas
  • Automatic Bollards
  • City Centre Bollards
  • Anti Ram Raid Bollards

Automatic Flowerbed Bollard

The Automatic flowerbed bollard is a very unusual but clever style of bollard. It allows for a flowerbed to be installed into a sensitive area and to control movement.

The automatic flowerbed bollard can be used to close off access to restricted zones and pedestrian precincts, but can quickly be opened to allow emergency services or authorised vehicles through.

The automatic flowerbed bollard conforms to the machinery directive EEC 98/37 and all other European safety standards without additional safety accessories. It comes ready assembled and only requires fixing to the ground and connecting to the power supply.

With automatic or manual opening, there are also a range of aesthetic options allowing this product to seamlessly compliment and enhance the architecture surrounding it.
