Preventing unwanted vehicle access

Installing an automatic rising bollard, kerb or road blocker provides an effective solution for preventing unwanted vehicle access. These vehicle security measures can be used in both manned and unmanned vehicle access points and are an effective deterrent against the most determined intruder. There is a choice of vehicle prevention systems available, depending on the level of security required.

During your decision process, it is important to consider the kind of vehicles that might require access to your site as this will predetermine the type and the size of the automatic obstacle needed.

Automatic BollardsBollards are a simple but effective solution for dealing with lower security risks. Our GA7276H automatic bollards have been built for optimum performance and intensively tested to ensure reliability for over 3000 movements per day. In the event of an emergency or power failure they can be lowered manually and 4 bollards can be operated simultaneously by a CDS dedicated control unit. Additional features include LED lights as a visual alert, built-in audible warning signal and an obstacle detection censor which stops the bollard being raised if an object is detected above.

Rising KerbAutomatic rising kerbs are built for strength and reliability. Manufactured from welded rectangular hollow section frame and chequered top plate, our GA8000 Automatic Rising Kerb is available in widths of 2.0 to 5.0 metres and three heights to suit cars, vans and HGVs. For the smooth raising and lowering of this rising kerb an advanced hydraulic power pack is used and is programmable through a state of the art logic controller. Using this technology ensures minimal maintenance and a reliable longevity.

Road BlockerIf your site requires a higher level of security because of the threat of potential terrorist attacks you should consider installing a road blocker. Choosing a road blocker which has been successfully crash tested is a vital consideration when selecting a product. Our GA10000 Shallow-Mounted Road Blocker received a 100% pass rate and a “0” penetration when tested at Mira (Motor Industry Research Association) and was still functioning after impact. When fully raised, the height of this road blocker is a formidable 1050mm which is operated by a hydraulic 7.5kw power pack and the controls are designed to accommodate all types of access control.
