Avon SSF100 Super Shallow Bollard

Avon SSF100 Super Shallow Bollard

The Avon Resilience SSF100 Bollard is an IWA14-1 impact tested super shallow foundation bollard, designed to provide blast stand-off and hostile vehicle protection for infrastructure without the need for deep foundations. The unique design allows for installing on slopes or inclines and seemlessly around curved walkways.

With a structural foundation depth of just 100 millimetre, the bollard offers the shallowest of foundations, whilst still providing a high level of protection against aggressive vehicle attack.

The bollard can be customised to blend into surrounding environments, with a variety of sleeve options, including stainless steel and ornate finishes. Ground finishes can include concrete, tarmac, block paving or crushed stone.

The installation is simple and cost effective with the minimal of distruption to the area, which enables them to be easily installed into city centres and built up environments.

Bollards - Static, Fixed, Removeable

Bollards - Static, Fixed, Removeable

Our High Security Bollards have all been PAS 68 or IWA 14-1 impact tested and are designed to provide a high level of security.

Static (passive) bollards provide a fixed or removable solution for public areas.

Automated active bollards can be used to control vehicle access.

Bollards are ideal for areas where public perceptions and aesthetics are a consideration but a high level of security is also required.  Shopping malls, stadiums, airports, sporting arenas, public spaces and city centres are sectors that would consider impact rated static and automated bollards as a security solution.

They are hostile vehicle mitigation solutions that protect roadways or perimeters from a vehicle with hostile intent whilst still enabling pedestrians free movement.
