Marshalls Landscape Protection has launched a new 100mm shallow foundation bollard, for use against vehicle-borne terror attacks in town and city centres.
The product, which has been crash-tested to the International Workshop Agreement (IWA) 14 specifications for products used in Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) requires much less excavation than traditional bollard foundations, it is claimed. Marshalls say the product can be installed in urban areas above telecoms and utilities infrastructure, avoiding the requirement for major excavation works which often result in road closures. The shallower foundation will also minimise the waste at installation the makers add.
The new bollard, which can stop a 7.2 tonne lorry travelling at 40mph, has been designed to absorb energy on impact, reducing the load seen by the foundation.
Marshalls also offers street furniture – planters, seating, cycle racks and bollards – crash-tested to Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 68/69, PAS 170 and IWA 14.1/14.2 standards.
Jaz Vilkhu, managing director of Marshalls Landscape Protection, said: “Protecting the busy streets of our towns and cities from the threat of vehicle-borne attacks and accidents has become a key priority for security professionals across the UK, and access to products with shallow foundations will be vital in helping them provide the protection people need. Crash-tested to the IWA 14 standards, this new measure will enable towns and cities to install protection much more easily, avoiding the disruption and additional costs associated with major excavation works.”
