Bridge Bollard System

  • IWA 14

Heald's Bridge Bollard System has been designed primarily for helping to secure bridges against the threat of hostile vehicle attacks. However, the product is capable of securing a much wider number of locations including inner cities and footways.

The revolutionary product consists of nine fixed bollards on individual baseplates, which are bolted together. It is a completely unique product which requires no pinning. The product has been crash tested with an array of nine interconnected bollards, with the design allowing for additional bollards to be added to expand the area being protected.

The Bridge Bollard System has been IWA-14 crash tested to halt a 7.2 tonne N3C truck (18 tonner) travelling at 48 kph (30 mph). The product was tested at 30 degrees to demonstrate how a vehicle could impact the bollards on a bridge.

Patent applied technology offers additional protection by anchoring the bollards into the ground upon impact, preventing the vehicle from penetrating the area the bollards are protecting. The crash test demonstrated that the system remained intact during the test and there was no encroachment of the vehicle onto the footway. Minimal penetration was recorded.

The bollards take approximately 45 minutes to deploy excluding civil works. With no requirement for a concrete base, the existing pavers are simply lifted, the bollards are fitted and the existing pavers are then refitted.

A variety of different bollard covers are also available.

The Bridge Bollard System is easily transported, due to its modular design and each bollard is simply bolted to the next one on site.
