Automatic Bollards – From Driveways to Traffic Management

There are many uses for automatic bollards in the UK today, from a single post protecting a driveway or parking spot, to town centre entry and exit traffic control systems and, increasingly, counter terror applications. At Macs Automated Bollard Systems, we offer a range of products and services to suit any application, with no project to big or too small.

Automatic Bollards for Car Park Security and Commercial Properties

Automatic bollards can be used to restrict vehicle access to areas such as car parks, and to protect commercial premises such as shop fronts, warehouses, forecourts and showrooms. Installed as either a single rising bollard or with multiple bollards in a row, they can be easily integrated with existing systems such as automatic barriers and gates, to further increase security. A multitude of control options allows for a bespoke system to suit your exact requirements, this includes key fobs, intercom systems and proximity tag readers, along with a variety of other options, such as our own in-house PLC bollard control and monitoring system.

Automatic Rising Bollards for Driveway Security

Bollards can be an ideal solution to help protect your driveway from vehicle theft and nuisance parking. With simplicity of use in mind (bollards can be easily operated using key fob lower and raise), automatic bollards are a great alternative to electric gates, and are more suitable than manual bollards when frequent access is needed during the day. Our automatic bollards are available in a range of sizes, come in painted or stainless-steel finishes, and with optional LED lights for increased visibility. More information on our residential range of bollards can be found here.

Automatic Bollard Systems for Highways Applications

For many modern town and city centres, the increase in traffic flow is a growing concern for urban planners and designers to address. When considering the implementation of traffic calming measures such as vehicle exclusion zones, bus gates and pedestrian only areas, a high performance and reliable solution is imperative. Macs’ PASS range of automatic bollards are ideally suited for use in such applications, allowing for increased security, vehicle restriction, and minimal visual impact.

Our range of PAS 68 and IWA 14 rated automatic bollard systems offer the required high level of perimeter protection, and have been specifically designed and tested for hostile vehicle mitigation applications.
