Safety First Over the Finish Line
by: NJM Group Marketing on
The Melbourne Cup is the race that stops a nation. It’s a great time to dress up, go out and have fun. While some people enjoy playing the odds by betting on the races, Australian Bollards doesn’t take any chances when safety is at stake.
Flemington Racecourse already has bollards installed to protect specific areas and keep pedestrians safe from vehicles. However, more comprehensive coverage is always a good idea, especially at the height of the racing season.
Event bollards can be used to reinforce the existing defences, covering gaps and adding extra protection where it’s needed most. Our event bollards have ballistic covers to meet section 3.8 of the PAS 68 industry standard, which specifies the requirements to protect against hostile vehicles, including VBIED attacks.
While the action is taking place at the racecourse, the surrounding area will also be bustling with activity, and more celebrations are planned for the rest of the week. Event bollards are ideal for keeping event-goers safe during this time and can be quickly removed after the carnival.
