Australian Bollards - HVM Solutions for Shopping Centres
by: NJM Group Marketing on
Opening in 1967, Glen Waverly's major shopping complex in The Glen has undergone major redevelopments over the past two years but it is now been back in business since earlier this year.
As one of the major shopping outlets in Melbourne's outer eastern suburbs, it is a popular location for thousands of people each day to spend their time shopping, relaxing or socialising with family and friends and is located 26 kilometres south-east from Melbourne's CBD.
The latest threat to having a peaceful society in the modern world comes in the shape of vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED) and as such, appropriate measures must be implemented.
Australian Bollards leads the way for hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) solutions in Australia and has a strong history when it comes to protecting shopping centres, with many of our products installed at Chadstone Shopping Centre, Darwin Local Court House, Pacific Fair, Aspendale Gardens Shopping Centre and Westfield Doncaster.
Our range of products offer the perfect hostile vehicle mitigation solution for all communities and our Spherical Streetscape Bollards in the AB-SB800-CI (Cast Iron) and the AB-SB800-G (Granite), (Vanguard Bollard Range) are two solutions that can also be engineered to meet PAS 68/IWA 14-1 Impact Ratings.
Installed in a sub-surface mounted fashion, each bollard weighs one tonne and is the perfect heavy-duty high impact solution that will protect and prevent shopping centres and other locations from VBIED attacks.
As well as being effective security solutions, our Spherical streetscape bollards are also aesthetically pleasing for passers-by to observe and admire. The smoothness and design of the bollards help the product blend in with its surroundings and thereby display a soft approach to hard security.
Adding to its aesthetic look, our streetscape bollards also come in an illuminated design, allowing security to look good at night too.
Our Vanguard Bollards at Chadstone Shopping Centre and Darwin Local Court are examples of how Australian Bollards can provide the ideal protection for locations like shopping centres and public sites and prevent tragedies from occurring.
Wheel stops are a necessary addition to any shopping centre and The Glen is no exception. Australian Bollards range of wheel stops in the AB-CWS-1650 and the AB-WS-1650
Made from concrete or recycled rubber, our wheel stops are an environmentally friendly reliable solution that will help control the flow and make shopping centre car parks a safer place.
Our wheel stops are also compliant with AS2890.1:2004 standards and earlier this year the team at Australian Bollards installed several wheel stops at Caribbean Business Park in Scoresby and Pacific Fair Shopping Centre in the Gold Coast.
Other products we manufacture that embody hostile vehicle mitigation are our Stainless-Steel High Impact HI168 Bollards and Designer Curved Bollards which are perfect for protecting shopfronts from reckless drivers.
Public safety is always at the forefront of our mind. No matter how big or small the job is, Australian Bollards will always get it done and provide shopping centres and its customers with the protection they need and deserve.
