ENERGY ABSORBING BOLLARDS

The Energy Absorbing Bollard (EAB) is designed to a TL-0 containment level, meaning it is capable of halting vehicles weighing 1600kg while travelling speeds of up to 60 kmhr

  • EAB has been crash tested in accordance with AS3845.2 demonstrating they can contain a 1600kg vehicle at 51.9km/h with an Impact Energy of 166.3kJ 
     

  • Another test conducted with a Concrete slab at the surface showed they can contain a 1,615kg vehicle at 62.5km/h with an Impact Energy of 243.4kJ, test no. 21062-02.

Bollards are one metre high (installed in-ground using a Reo cage and concrete footing) available in a galvanised steel and powder coated finish.  

 

The EAB is designed to a TL-0 containment level, meaning it is capable of halting vehicles weighing 1600kg while travelling speeds of up to 60 kilometers an hour.

 

The EAB Cartridge is filled with VVH Grade Polystyrene foam which increases its shock absorbing capabilities, making it compliant with AS/NZS 1698:2006

MAINTENANCE

 

 When impacted the bollard and surrounding foundations will show signs of damage and the impact absorbing cartridge will need replacing.

(Damage to the cartridge will result in the above-the-ground bollard not being straight.)

  1. The bollard is removed from the cartridge. 
     

  2. The concrete footing needs to be broken using a jack hammer and crowbar. 
     

  3. The damaged concrete footing must be removed and disposed of
     

  4. A new footing, a new cartridge, and reinforcing reo cage must be installed and filled with 30-40MPa concrete to repair the damaged footing.
