Gibraltar is the leader in North America when it comes to crash-rated bollards. Our proprietary crash certified and engineer rated bollard designs have been installed across the world to protect pedestrian areas from errant or purposely driven vehicles.
Gibraltar currently offers shallow bollard designs crash certified to ASTM F2656-07 M50 P1 and ASTM F2656-15 M30 P1. These designs require only 12 inches (305mm) of depth allowing them to be installed in areas with limited ground depth. Gibraltar has supplied thousands of these units across the United States. Our standard foundation offering is certified to ASTM F2656-07 M50 P1. This installation requires 48 inches (1220mm) of depth and a trench style foundation for install.
Gibraltar also offers engineer rated shallow bollard and standard bollard designs utilizing past crash testing data and 3rd party calculations by a licensed professional engineer. Gibraltar’s bollards can be found on the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) DOD Anti-Ram Barrier List.
