product-bollardposts Rising bollards set to become the preferred vehicle entrance control solution, report suggestsRevenue growth for rising bollards is set to outpace that for vehicle blockers by almost double, bringing about a fundamental shift in market for vehicle entrance control equipment, fresh IMS research has revealed.

The new World Market for Vehicle Entrance Control Equipment report released by market consultancy IMS Research projects compound annual growth in revenues from rising bollards of 4.4 per cent during the period from 2011 to 2015. This rate is expected to be nearly double that for vehicle blockers, which fulfill a similar function with respect to property security functions.

The fact that bollards can rise and descend from beneath the road surface via automated technology further enhances their functionality, making them a fully optional feature while also removing the need for external storage.

Additionally, the increasing strength of rising bollards promise to put them on an equal footing with road blockers for high security projects in future, however – especially now that the products have obtained K-12 ratings.
