Heavy-duty steel bollards that can stop a 7.5 ton lorry travelling at 30mph have been introduced at Windsor Castle’s Henry VIII Gate entrance after Britain’s terror threat level was upgraded to “severe”, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
The barricades comprise cylindrical heavy steel posts that will be positioned on hydraulics and can be lowered in just 1.5 seconds in an emergency to allow vehicles in and out of the gate.
Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles offers a high-end, reliable, yet quite affordable access restriction solution of this type as well, our Automatic Bollards being specifically designed to limit vehicle access to a specific location, and then be lowered rapidly when passage is authorised, typically within 2-3 seconds.
Our bollards are constructed out of concrete, stainless steel, aluminium or cast iron and are sturdy enough to be able to completely stop the majority of vehicles. Furthermore, they’re also quite resilient to atmospheric elements, and are housed inside compartments set into the road surface.
Additionally, an access control device, such as a smart card, can be combined with the automatic bollards, enabling quick and easy raising and lowering of the post. The Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles automatic bollards also sport an anti-intrusion locking system, as well as a failsafe in both retracted and extended position.
