Rising Bollards – Installation

The Brief

Our client previously installed a traffic management system in the form of parking barriers to its private car park; however it was poorly set up and did not offer the level of access control and security the client required. The site was not permanently manned therefore the parking boons were constantly being broken and replaced as people tailgated or just drove through the parking barriers as it did not offer a strong physical deterrent. The project was budget sensitive so we were asked to link in with the existing traffic light system and access control equipment to reduce costs where possible.

The Solution

After multiple consultations with client, BFT stoppy rising bollards were chosen to replace the existing set up- the bollards are heavy duty and built for continuous cycle duty. The bollards can lower/rise 6 seconds and has an anti ram impact resistance to 8000J (for any non scientists out there it will stop a car at 30mph). The stoppy is also aesthetically pleasing made in high grade stainless steel. High visibility is guaranteed by a set of programmable (flashing or constant) L.E.D’s around the top of the bollard. As the site is not manned we also installed some optional extras such as battery back up to maintain use for a limited period (or locking) during power failures and a heating kit during cold periods. The project was carried out over a weekend to minimise disruption to the car park, we excavated the ground and installed the foundation casings, cabling and loop detectors and then once the concrete had hardened off we installed the bollard the following weekend all while the exiting set was being utilised so the car park was still fully operational.


“The project required a great involvement from Renzland Project Solutions in terms of consultancy advice, design specification and project management to ensure it was excited in a timely manner. We are extremely pleased with the work carried we now have complete control over the parking situation, As a result of your hard work, we will be looking for your help to secure a variety of other sites within our portfolio of infrastructure”.
