Big Bollard on Short List


ATG Access has been short listed for an award at the Institute of Highways & Transportation (IHT) awards 2007. The awards which are run in conjunction with Corus and the National Security Advice Centre (NSAC) were set up to celebrate and reward the remarkable achievements of those working in highways and transportation.

ATG has been short listed in the “Security in the Public Realm” category for its work at Paradise Street bus station in Liverpool. The location of the station left a nearby building vulnerable to vehicular attack and ATG's SP1000 rising bollard system closed that gap.

The SP1000 has been crash tested as part of the production of the PAS 68 standard, various tests have been carried out, the most impressive of which saw a 7.5 tonne truck impact into a single bollard at 50mph. The truck was stopped dead and the bollard continued to function.

Rated to exceed the criteria in American standard K12, the SP1000 is a masterpiece of engineering and protects government facilities, embassies and high profile stadiums around the world from the threat of terrorist attack.
