Heald’s Matador 3 is an automated bollard system which has revolutionised the perimeter security industry. The Matador is the most resistant bollard of its type on the market due to its internal reinforcement which other bollards simply don’t have.
Based on the award-winning HT1-Matador, it is the only surface mount bollard to include an automatic sliding bollard to be IWA-14 tested to halt a 7.2 tonne truck travelling at 64 kph (40 mph).
Not only did the Matador arrest the test vehicle with a zero penetration rating, but it continued to function following the impact with no repairs.
The Matador 3 can be installed in locations where even a shallow mount is impossible giving it a huge advantage over more traditional security barriers.
It is simply bolted (to a suitable base) onto the road making it ideal for short term or temporary projects as well as permanent ones where excavation is impractical. It can be installed flush with the surface, requiring an excavation of just 100 mm.
The Matador 3 automated bollard system consists of a baseplate with two fixed bollards either side of one or two central sliding bollards which move to the side to allow vehicular access.
The design allows for constant pedestrian access, even when closed, and features a completely flat surface, meaning no trip or trap hazards, which makes it extremely safe. All moving parts are visible at all times, minimising the chance of accidental damage or injury.
The stylish stainless steel design, available in a range of styles and covers, enables the Matador to integrate flawlessly with any environment, making it the perfect choice for sites where a low profile solution is required. The surface mount bollards can also be supplied with cover plates inlaid with stone and granite to match any environment.
Opened and Closed by remote push button control, it is also available with Heald’s Hydra control and monitoring system which offers unprecedented levels of interaction through a simple, streamlined interface.
The automated bollard can also be fitted with an EFO (Emergency Fast Operation) where required.
There are also electro-mechanical options available for the Matador 3.
The EM Matador will offer the same excellent standards as our existing Matador with a variety of added benefits. One of the primary benefits of EM over a hydraulic system is the ability to deploy products faster owing to motors being installed within the product which removes the need for an additional unit to house controls and having to install hydraulic ducts for the products to operate.
An additional benefit of Heald’s EM Matador is a reduced carbon footprint due to requiring on average, over 60% less electricity to operate.
The EM Matador specifically will revolutionise temporary and small event security due to its shallow foundation depth and its ability to run off a generator or temporary power supply.
