Saferoads displays Omni Stop Bollard
Australian firm Saferoads is offering an improved roadside protection product in the shape of its new Omni Stop Bollard.
The product is suited to installations such as around construction workzones or pedestrian and commercial areas, where there may be site personnel or people congregating alongside a busy roadway. The Omni Stop Bollards can be spaced so as to allow free access for pedestrians or cyclists, while providing protection from errant vehicles.
The bollard is made from steel and has been tested to Australian standards with a 1.6tonne vehicle impacting at a speed of 60km/h, deflecting by no more than 300mm at its top. A novel energy absorbing cartridge encased in a concrete footing helps the product cope with impact forces. In the event of an impact the cartridge will deform and absorb the kinetic energy, safely decelerating the vehicle and preventing serious injury.
