Bollards

Bollards

A Bavak bollard provides protection against unintentional crashes by vehicles such as cars and trucks, or even in case of attacks. A bollard consists of a steel pole which is either buried or anchored in concrete with heavy reinforcement and covered by a metal sleeve. The Bavak bollards are used by governments, agencies and private companies to protect buildings and public spaces.

When used as a complement to new or existing architecture, bollards can easily enhance the visual environment. They automatically and unconsciously enhance the sense of security. In addition, bollards can also be a perfect fit for traffic regulation where vehicle access is restricted for certain periods of time.

Bavak supplies and installs bollards in a wide range. There are fixed bollards which are placed in a row, there are galvanized bollards, sliding bollards and special custom made decorative bollards.

The fixed bollards are not movable or 'galvanizable'. There are different types of fixed bollards available that can be delivered via Bavak. The purpose of use determines which type of bollard should be used. The choice for the right bollard depends on the required level of security. In addition, it is important to know that the appearance of these bollards can easily be adapted to your needs with a 'sleeve'. This means that the final colour can be made exactly to meet your corporate identity. Also the shape of the bollard can be adjusted. This means that the bollards can fit exactly to your style or to the environment as conceived by an architect.

Then there are sliding, or retractable (automatic) bollards. These are two options for when a passage is needed in a row of bollards. For example to make an entrance or an exit there are the automatic or sideways movable bollards.

When the automatic bollard is in the 'raised' or upright position, it is clearly visible and has a robust barrier. In the lowered position the bollard is completely flushed with the road surface. This allows unhindered passage for vehicles. By lowering, they are in no way an obstruction. When they are in the 'up position', they provide a clear perimeter demarcation that directs traffic. The 'sinking' and 'extending' is done in seconds. For this bollard an Emergency Fast Operate (EFO) is available as an extra option. This EFO may be needed to have the ability to speed up the emergency exit of secured posts.

If a 'sinkable bollard' is impossible because of the underground structure and yet a non-permanent passage in deposition is necessary, Bavak offers a possibility. Bavak delivers sideways sliding bollards without compromising safety.

These bollards slide to the side so that a vehicle can pass through and slide back as soon as possible. By sliding aside, the bollards are fully visible during the entire process, which reduces the risk of damage. Furthermore, and this is the most important reason to choose for this type, no 'deep' foundation is required meaning it is possible to mount this solution in places where it is impossible to ‘dig deep’. For example in case where there are many cables in the infrastructure or exactly above a parking garage.

Finally, there are adapted decorative bollards. If the (landscape) architect would require the aesthetic approach, Bavak can also perfectly meet this need. Bavak supplies various options for special tailor-made bollards. These bollards make it possible to let the safety blend almost invisibly into the 'natural' environment. Take for example, planters with one or two bollards (invisibly) integrated in them. It is also possible to combine the utmost safety with comfort. This can be done by placing a bench over bollards with a crash rating. By doing this, the entire environment is secured, without creating a feeling of insecurity.

It is important to mention that all our bollards have different certifications, depending on your needs. These certifications consist of; PAS68, ASTM2656, IWA-14-1, K4 - K8 - K12. This also applies to the galvanized and the sliding versions. As you can see, we deliver these exactly tailored to your needs.
