A total leasing solution for pedestrian safety at events
by: NJM Group on
An important aspect of public safety is about creating a safe environment for pedestrians.
Recent events illustrate the security concern; earlier this month, a car mounted a popular Brisbane pedestrian and cycle boardwalk. Only a few days later, car drove into a crowd on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, killing a baby and injuring 15 people.
Creating a barrier between crowds and traffic is an essential part of effective public safety measures, making sure accidents like the one in Rio don’t occur. Cities around the world have also seen a spike in vehicle attacks, where attackers plough into crowds intentionally.
Challenges arise at big events such as Australian Open, Midsumma and Australia Day. These are all events that gather a large number of people who are a potential target or simply vulnerable to accidents.
Bollards are a simple and popular solution already employed many places to protect pedestrians, however bollards must meet various additional requirements to be feasible for events; they have to be quickly deployable and temporary. Often, they should also fit with the theme or aesthetics of the event.
Australian Bollards is proud to introduce Event Bollards, a total leasing solution for public security. Our event bollards can be deployed at a moment’s notice, with installation by our in-house installation team. We offer consultation, relevant maintenance and uninstallation after the lease is over.
We have a variety of designs to choose from, such as our economic and rustic concrete spheres or squares. They include a propriety security insert to make them even more impact-resistant than other similar bollards. It is also possible to add lights for better visibility.
Other designs and customisations are also possible. Our Soft Approach catalogue can give you an idea about the options we offer.
We believe Event Bollards is the best way to make events safer for pedestrians, and we hope to see Australians better protected when celebrating in the future.
