ADVANCED POLYMER BOLLARDS

IMPACT TESTED FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND

UPON LOW IMPACT
 

Advanced Polymer Bollards are flexible enough to deflect and self-recover, with no diminished capacity following hundreds of light impacts. 

UPON SEVERE IMPACT

When severely impacted the bollard offers good resistance, but will eventually bend and need replacing.

 

If installed using Impact Recovery System you can make the bollard and footings reusable following even severe impact

We withstand multiple impacts and self-recover 
 

Impact tested for carpark situations >10 kmph

Unlike most plastic Bollards on the market with thin 1-3 mm wall thickness, our Advanced Polymer Bollards and Bollard Covers are roto moulded from a solid piece of Advanced Polymer material, with heavy duty 7 mm walls which ensures that they are structurally sound and robust enough to withstand light impact from a vehicle and self-recover.

Polyethylene and polypropylene are frequently used in construction, military and industrial applications that require impact resistance and toughness. Impact resistance is the ability of a material to resist both fracture and deformation when temporary force is applied.

Aussie Made Quality you can trust.

ADVANCED POLYMER BOLLARDS


Advanced Polymer Bollards are impact resistant but if badly impacted will need replacing- to further reduce downstream maintenance bollards can be secured using the Impact Recovery System.

 

 See below.

IN-GROUND  BOLLARDS

 

  • Advanced Polymer Bollards can be installed directly in a concrete footing.
     

  • Three lengths available 1250/1500/1800 mm
     

  • We suggest using a min of 500 mm concrete footing to avoid the footing being dislodged when the bollard is impacted
     

  • If bollard may be subject to severe impact we suggest reinforcing the footing using a Reo cage or using the Impact Recovery System
     

  • You must use min of 30 MPa concrete to ensure the concrete is impact resistant



 

Advanced Polymer Bollards are impact resistant but when installed directly in concrete, if bollard is badly impacted both the bollard and the concrete footing will need replacing

 

To make the both bollard and expensive footings re-usable following severe impact bollards can be secured using the Impact Recovery System.

 

 See below.

IMPACT RECOVERY SYSTEM

IN-GROUND IMPACT RECOVERY BOLLARDS

 

  • The Impact Recovery Rings are slipped over the top of the Internal Resistance core and secured using the clamp provided
     

  • The Resistance core (with Taper attached) is simply dropped into the ground socket automatically locking in using friction.
     

  • Bollard is simply slipped over the Rings and a securing stud is inserted (in a threaded hole near the base of the bollard, beneath the Impact Recovery Ring) preventing upward movement of bollard casing
     

  • To remove bollard. Remove stud near the base of the bollard using Allen key and repeat above in reverse. If badly impacted internal core may need replacing (Taper can be removed and re-used)

    TOOLS REQUIRED
     

  • Removal Tool required to remove internal core from ground socket. 
    (Foot tool option avaliable)

  • Screwdriver is required to tighten clamps

  • Allen key to remove bollard casing

The In-ground Impact Recovery System is secured using ZERO WASTE "auto-locking" ground socket and Taper, protecting foundations from damage for the entire lifespan for development.

SURFACE MOUNT IMPACT RECOVERY SYSTEM

 

  • The Impact Recovery Rings are slipped over the top of the Internal Resistance core and secured using the clamp provided
     

  • The internal Resistance core is fitted over the upright spigot and secured using a securing stud (provided) 
     

  • Bollard is simply slipped over the Rings and a securing stud is inserted (in a threaded hole near the base of the bollard) sitting, beneath the Impact Recovery Ring, preventing upward movement of bollard casing
     

  • To remove bollard. Remove stud near the base of the bollard using Allen key and repeat above in reverse. If badly impacted internal core may need replacing 

    TOOLS REQUIRED
     

  • Allen key required to remove internal core from base plate

  • Screwdriver is required to tighten clamps

  • Allen key to remove bollard casing
