Shock Absorbing Bollards (SAB) have 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. If the contact is of a deflection or glancing nature, the SAB is able to rotate through 360 degrees (in-ground model only). Shock Absorbing Bollards are available from R J Cox Engineering .
SABs are designed to be used anywhere, where vehicles are manoeuvring at low speeds, such as carparks and warehouses. The self centering design allows SABs to take repeated impacts without incurring permanent damage. SABs simply absorb the impact and return to their original position.
Following are the features of SABs:
- Bottom of Form
- SABs are available in 140mm diameter in either core drilled in-ground or surface mounted models
- Not recommended for high speed traffic environments
- SAB140CD core drilled and SAB140SM surface mount
