Shock Absorbing - Heavy Duty

Shock absorbing bollards for industrial/commercial applications to protect assets by absorbing impact from slow moving heavy vehicles. Suitable for factories, warehouses and carparks etc.

The Shock Absorbing Bollard (SAB) has the ability to shift sideways if hit at or near ground level. If the impact is higher up the bollard, it can tilt up to 8 degrees, at which point it locks up offering maximum protection. Alternatively if the contact is of a deflection or glancing nature, the SAB is able to rotate through 360 degrees.

Each SAB comes fitted with high impact polyethylene protective sleeves. The sleeves are U.V. stabilised and won’t fade, rot, rust or peel. Never have to paint chipped, scratched or rusted bollards again. (Click here for more information on protective bollard sleeves).

SABs are designed to be used anywhere vehicles are manoeuvring at low speeds, such as carparks and warehouses etc. The self centering design means the SABs can take repeated impacts without incurring permanent damage. They simply absorb the impact and return to their original position. These unique characteristics result from the combination of clever engineering and the use of high tech composite materials. SABs are available in 140mm diameter in either core drilled in-ground or surface mounted models.

Note: Not recommended for high speed traffic environments.
