UNSW Safeguards their Students

UNSW Safeguards their Students

With the increasing occurrence of terror attacks around the world, Sydney’s city council has been taking steps to enhance security around public spaces in the city centre.

In June this year, the council installed concrete bollards along Martin Place at the location of the Lindt Café siege, to prevent terrorist attacks like those we have seen in London, Barcelona and Nice.

According to a City of Sydney spokesperson, the bollards will help to “strengthen security in public places”.

We couldn’t agree more. With terror attacks sparking fear, the best thing we can do is create safe zones for people, allowing them to go on with their lives unobstructed. By installing bollards, we ensure our right to move freely without fear.

Australian Bollards is proud to assist with this process by providing heavy duty but visually appealing bollards to do the job.

Our bollards have been installed at universities around Australia such as RMIT, Melbourne University, Deakin, and University of Tasmania.

 

One of our recent installations can be found at The University of NSW where 80 High Impact Energy Absorbing Bollards have been placed in front of the university’s entrances and car parks, providing protection for teachers and students.

We are proud to present a security solution that protects against any vehicle borne attack but also look beautiful and blend in seamlessly with the surroundings.

We look forward to supplying and partnering with other universities around Australia in the future to create safer public spaces.

Softer Speed Humps for Parking Safety

Softer Speed Humps for Parking Safety

Speeding in car parks is an incredibly dangerous thing to do, but with shoppers racing for parking spots, it is an all too common occurrence.

Speed Humps provide an effective solution for slowing down cars forcing commuters to drive at a safer speed.

However, many speed humps have steep inclines making it uncomfortable for drivers and passengers passing over them, particularly children, babies and the disabled. It also can be strenuous on car suspensions and can aggravate or cause spinal injuries.

This is why our speed humps are designed to provide a gentle drive over experience.

It is tall enough to meet Australian Standards and provides a visual deterrent to speeding, making parking lots safer for pedestrians while not aggravating drivers enhancing everyone’s shopping experience.

They have been tested against high volume traffic flows, and the materials used ensure durability and longevity over an extensive range of time.

Our range of speed humps are environmentally friendly and are made from recycled rubber.

They are tested and approved to be used in car parks, commercial premises, petrol stations, roads and driveways to provide a gentle approach to car park safety.

 

 

Overview of the Caribbean Business Park project

Overview of the Caribbean Business Park project

With 200,000m² of state-of-the-art office buildings surrounded by lush grasslands and lakes, the Caribbean Business Park truly is staking its claim as the premier business park in Australia.

To achieve their desires of grandeur, the Caribbean Business Park team has joined forces with NJM Group, to provide safety solutions which come with a level of sophistication and professionalism.

We have recently completed the stage one construction process which involved installing handrails, balustrades, parking bollards, wheel stops, light bollards, height bars and card readers.

 

And following that successful installation we are proud to announce, we will be heavily involved in stage two.

 

While talks are still going on, we do know there will be many handrails and balustrades being installed by Australian Handrails, a division of NJM Group.

The handrails will be custom built to seamless blend in to the surroundings.

This installation is just one of many examples of how we provide perfectly tailored solutions for clients from our wide range of products to ensure all their safety requirements are met while achieving any aesthetic our client’s desire.

Creating ‘safe zones’ at supermarkets

Creating ‘safe zones’ at supermarkets

Supermarkets often feature long glass walls which back on to parking lots and Coles Patterson Lakes is no exception.

For this reason, bollard protection is essential and Australian Bollards was happy to oblige by installing a row of grey high impact bollards to provide protection.

Whether it be protection from ram-raids, terrorism, machinery accidents or simply someone mistaking their accelerator for their brake, this installation will ensure the safety of shoppers as well as protecting the building itself.

Coles Patterson Lakes now has two layers of protection, the first being a row of wheel stops which would slow down a driver who is headed towards the building and now a very sturdy second layer of protection in the bollards.

In recent times, ram-raiding thieves and terrorists have targeted all kinds of shopping facilities whether it is major shopping centres or standalone supermarkets.

Australian Bollards is well-known for keeping Australias most frequented areas, facilities and precincts safe through customising solutions which not only provide protection but look good.

Wheel stops are most commonly seen in parking lots and underground car parks to prevent vehicles from colliding with other vehicles, buildings, garden beds or from obstructing pedestrian walkways.

Constructed from recycled rubber, Australian Bollards’ AB-WS-1650 wheel stops are the economical, lightweight solution for controlling the travel of a vehicle into a parking space and preventing any obstruction or inconvenience to pedestrians. The one-piece construction means the wheel stops can be installed by one person and without the use of heavy lifting machinery.

Australian Bollards’ wheel stops comply with current Australian Standards AS2890.1:2004 for compliant physical dimensions in Australia. With a solid moulded construction and solid black and yellow stripes, our wheel stops will not chip, distort, disintegrate or corrode in various weather conditions. These wheel stops are resistant to UV, moisture, oil and extreme temperature variations, making them the ideal solution for both indoor and outdoor parking situations.

Australian Bollards installed 280 of these wheel stops at the newly developed Caribbean Business Park. The purpose of these wheel stops is to prevent drivers from coming into contact with the wall, as well as allowing enough room for pedestrian thoroughfare.

In addition, Australian Bollards installed heavy duty bollards to prevent vehicles colliding with glass containing lift access and Armco barriers to further protect the areas surrounding the underground car park and withstand vehicle impact.

Also available in Australian Bollards’ range of wheel stops are: Truck wheel stops, concrete enforcers and galvanised steel wheel stops. Australian Bollards can customise a wheel stop solution to suit your individual site requirements.
