bollards

Boomgate Systems can offer various Bollards and the specific applications they are best suited for. We will further be
identifying specific types of advantages associated with the bollards.

Bollards can be used to restrict traffic flow whilst still allowing for pedestrian flow, like blocking of a road for a
sporting event or a concert around a stadium.

Bollards can be used as an anti-ram post to prevent a vehicle from forcing an entry into a shopping mall or protecting
valuable stock in a warehouse or showroom floors and cash handling facilities or any application to protect high risk
areas.

fully operational after impact. Pass Rated Bollards are very specialized and require it to be supplied and

– Non Rated Bollard can be any form of structure to prevent unwanted access. It is always a good idea to get
professional advice before making a decision on bollards, it is important to identify the risk before deciding
