Impact Recovery Bollards

Steel, stainless steel and plastic bollards (in-ground and surface mount) can be made re-usable impact after impact, saving thousands over the lifespan of development  

When impacted, something's gotta give!

Without some form of shock absorbing mechanism every time an in-ground or surface mounted bollard is impacted both the bollard and surrounding foundations need replacing, (consuming valuable resources) and costing you thousands over the life of a development


 

IMPACT RECOVERY SYSTEM
__________________________________

Secure bollards in-ground or surface mount 

Two re-usable Impact Recovery Rings that act as shock absorbers to protect the bollard and footings

When impacted by a vehicle the Smart Impact Recovery Rings absorb the impact force, allowing the bollard to deflect up to 20 degrees and (unlike spring loaded bollards that over-deflect, and wear out over time) slowly safely self-recover impact after impact, year after year

 

 

 

 

RE-USE IMPACT AFTER IMPACT
_______________________________

Bollards remain rigid and cannot be deflected by hand (so appear to be every-day inground or surface mounted bollards)

Upon low impact bollards self-recover (no maintenance). Upon severe impact the internal core can bend and is simple to replace. Rings, bollard and foundations are re-usable impact after impact.

Used by all major cities in WA to make both in-ground and surface mount bollards impact resistant, improving safety and reducing risk of damage to vehicles 

 

 

LOW IMPACT OPTION
_____________________

Solid steel Bollards were creating a dangerous litigation risk on Bike Paths for Main Roads Dept who came to Smart Urban for a solution that would reduce risk of injury to bike riders and only allow access to authorised vehicles 

We developed the Low Impact Bike Path Bollard secured using a Super-flex Impact Recovery System to prevent vehicle entry and enable bollards to deflect upon low impact and slowly self-recover, reducing the risk of injury to bike riders and substantially reducing the on-going cost of maintenance

 

 

 

 

HIGH IMPACT OPTIONS
_____________________

Safe-stop option: You can increase the strength of the Internal Core to solid steel, absorbing the initial impact force and bring a passenger vehicle to a stop 

For ram-raid situations, Smart Sure-stop Bollards are secured on more substantial foundations which are protected from damage by another two shock absorbers below ground

 


 

DESIGN OPTIONS

You can secure an every day steel, quality stainless steel, durable poly or designer laser cut bollard, or you can buy the Smart Impact Recovery System and secure your own bollard.
