Anti Ram Bollards

Deter & prevent forced entry from automobiles.

With vehicle ramming attacks on the rise in the United States and abroad government campus and private facility sites are assessing vulnerabilities in the protection of their spaces. Anti ram walls can be designed and installed to both look aesthetically pleasing while also providing unparalleled security from attack by automobiles of virtually any size.

Perimeter security is designed to protect employees, visitors, and building functions and services from threats such as unauthorized vehicles approaching close to or penetrating high-risk buildings. The key element in protecting buildings from a vehicular bomb is the establishment of appropriate stand-off distance, depending on the size of the threat and the building characteristics. This is accomplished by a protective barrier system placed to provide at least minimum required stand-off. In an urban situation, this is often not possible, and alternative measures must be taken.

The main purpose of anti-ram bollards is to provide a sufficient level of protection and mitigation from vehicle-borne threats to a secured area. Applications in which anti-ram bollards are normally used include airports, boarder patrol locations, Department of Defense and Department of State facilities, port authorities, public venues, and law enforcement facilities.

Perimeter Security Group can design, build and install a wide range of fixed static vehicle barrier bollards to meet any force protection measures required. We are a certified provider of the industry’s largest barrier manufacturers and can provide a widest range of options. We can design anti ram wall perimeters along with automated barrier systems that can be activated by a control system with speed detection and wrong-way detection systems in a guard booth or building.

Passive Bollards

Permanent bollards for cost effective protection.

Anti ram passive (Fixed) bollards come in an array of sizes and looks depending on the level of protection required.  Bollards can be supplied with a rating from C40 (Small passenger car traveling 40mph) to M50 (Medium duty 15,000lb truck traveling 50mph) and can be installed with both deep and shallow foundation as required.  Bollards can be specified with custom decorative coverings to match facilities architectural theme.

Active Bollards

Automated bollards for sites that demand open access.

Anti Ram Active (operable) bollards are used in entry and exit lanes where vehicle screening is necessary, at site entrances, and at entries to parking garages and building services. Bollards can be supplied with a rating from C40 (Small passenger car traveling 40mph) to M50 (Medium duty 15,000lb truck traveling 50mph) depending on the required level of protection. Retractable bollard system consists of one or more rising bollards operating independently or in groups of two or more units. The bollard is a below-ground assembly consisting of a foundation structure and a heavy cylindrical bollard that can be raised or lowered by a buried electrical, hydraulic or pneumatic power unit, and controlled remotely by a range of access control devices. Manually operated systems are also available: these are counter-balanced and lock in the up or down position.
