Australian Bollards – Delivering Essential Road Safety Solutions
by: NJM Group Marketing on
As an essential service, Australian Bollards Roadside Services and Saferoad Division delivers its customers the finest asset protection and public security products and our AB-EAB Energy Absorbing Bollards are no exception.
At Australian Bollards we understand that when it comes to public safety and security there is no substitute for quality and our unique Energy Absorbing Bollards definitely set the benchmark.
Engineered to save lives, our Energy Absorbing Bollards are the perfect traffic safety solutions to protect pedestrians from reckless drivers, making them ideal for high foot traffic areas like sidewalks, schools, shopfronts and tram stops.
Recently Australian Bollards installed Energy Absorbing Bollards at Tram Stop 16 at the Abbotsford/Haines Street intersection in North Melbourne to help provide the necessary protection for public transport commuters who maybe be travelling via the tram to local places like the Royal Children Hospital, the Royal Melbourne Hospital an the North Melbourne train station.
Our AB-EAB Energy Absorbing Bollards are engineered to meet IWA14-1/PAS68 standards, thereby allowing them to withstand and halt vehicles weighing up to two tonnes, travelling speeds up to 60 kilometres an hour in their tracks.
What makes our Energy Absorbing Bollards a game changing solution not only for pedestrians but for drivers as well, is the bollards ability to “give way” or absorb the kinetic energy of a head on collision. With the bollard “giving way”, it makes the vehicle come to a steady and controlled stop which will in turn protect the driver upon impact, keeping them in the vehicle.
These modifications make our AB-EAB Energy Absorbing Bollards compliant with the road safety barrier systems and device standards AS/NZS 3845 (1999).
For extra shock absorbing capabilities, our AB-EAB is also installed with an energy absorbing cartridge which makes it compliant with AS/NZS 1698 (2006) standards.
