Automatic Rising Bollards
Automatic rising bollards are an excellent way to supplement security and protect vulnerable areas - in particular doorways which can be vulnerable to being rammed by a vehicle.
Rising bollards are also often referred to as telescopic bollards, the basic idea is that bollard can be lowered so it is below the ground surface. Applications are typically for either security or controlled access reasons - e.g. the entrance to a pedestrianised town centre area.
Designed to control the access of vehicles to residential areas and commercial properties, Procter Automatic Bollards are manufactured from high quality stainless or galvanised steel. These bollards are available in diameters of 127mm or 275mm and heights of 600mm or 800mm to suit customer needs. All Procter Automatic Bollards are compatible with a variety of different control mechanisms including remote controls, keypads and swipe cards. Procter recommends that bollards are placed no further than 1,200mm apart to ensure no vehicle may pass between them.
* Induction Loop and Vehicle detectors
Inductive loop detectors or potoelectric cell systems control the barrier by detectiing vehicles. Inductive loops detect the interactive field change of a vehicle as it passes over its wound cable 'loop'. Photoelectric cells use a reflective beam, 'sensing' an object when the beam is broken.
* Remote Controls
Push buttons and switches provide easy local control of the barrier, for barrier systems that are permanently manned. Alternatively a keyswitch can be fitted to the barrier cabinet with control override raise & lower commands (key may be removed at any position).
* Card Technology
Magnetic stripe and proximity card technologies provide the ideal solution for controlling access for a large number of users. Each card is encoded with a site code and an individual number, providing very secure access control and easy system management. Timed allocation and capture (Magnetic stripe only) systems are also available.
Intercom systems provide easy remote verification before allowing visitor access. The only effective system for providing visitor access to a site. Site Surveys are advised for all automatic systems to ensure correct, safe operation and the most suitable control combinations are selected. Suitable signage is recommended to ensure drivers and pedestrians are aware of automatic barrier operation. Safe provision should always be allowed for pedestrians where required.
When rising bollards are used, we can also install a wide range of options for access control, such as key switch, key pad and card reader, or remote control and monitored via CCTV. Other access control systems are available, please ask for more information.
Anti-terrorist bollards can also be supplied, or view all bollards options.
