Your Global Leader in Crash-Tested Vehicle Barrier Bollards

Crash-Tested Safety Bollards

Gibraltar’s G-1600 series safety bollards have been tested and crash certified by an independent, third-party crash test laboratory. Currently, we offer bollards certified to ASTM F-3016-19 S30 P1 crash requirements and engineered from data extrapolation for lighter S20 and S10 ratings. Our certified bollards guarantee perimeter security no matter which type of bollard is required; whether you require a fixed, removable, or powered retractable model we have a bollard solution to meet your need.

Fixed and Removable Shallow-Mount Bollards

The G1631-F bollard is Gibraltar’s fixed, shallow-mount bollard solution ideal for buildings with existing underground utilities. G1631-F bollards require foundations only eight inches in depth and can be installed directly into existing sidewalks, concrete slabs, and more. In addition, this bollard requires no metal rebar cage, making installation efficient and quick.

Gibraltar’s G-1631R removable safety bollard requires a foundation only 8.5 inches in depth and can be installed directly into a pre-existing concrete slab or sidewalk. These removable bollards do not require rebar for installation and are thus ideal for applications with underground utilities to navigate. Just like our fixed G-1631F bollards, these removable bollards have passed S30 P1 level specifications.

Deployable Standard Mount Bollards

Our G-1631D model bollard is a standard mount bollard requiring a foundation of at least 54”. These deployable bollards were third-party tested to the highest ASTM F-3016-19 rating, and the results engineer-calculated and extrapolated to the lower S20 and S10 levels. Depending on your needs, bollards can be operated manually or controlled by a completely automated system.

Gibraltar Is the Global Leader For Ultra-Shallow Security Bollards

Gibraltar’s G-1400 Series bollards have been crash-tested and certified to ASTM F2656-15 M40 P1 test specifications as a single bollard. For these purposes, our G-1441 bollards can halt a 15,000 pound vehicle traveling at speeds of up to 40 mph without allowing penetration past one meter. These unique units are patent pending for our innovations in bollard strength and efficiency in installation.

Fixed Ultra-Shallow Security Bollards

The G-1441 Ultra-Shallow Bollard is a patent-pending security bollard that has been fully tested and crash certified as a single bollard. This primary bollard has been certified by an independent third-party crash test laboratory to ASTM F2656-15 M40 P1 levels. However, Gibraltar also arranged crash testing of our ultra-shallow bollards to ASTM F2656-15 M40 P2 specifications and provided extrapolated calculations for engineered M30 P1 specifications.

These ultra-shallow bollards require foundation depths of just 5 inches, as compared to the 12 inches required by our other shallow options – making the G-1441 ideal for applications with shallow concrete like parking decks and bridges or areas with existing underground utilities. In addition, the bollard requires just 78 inches from the front to the back of the foundation. As a result, the bollard and poured foundation assembly can replace a standard sidewalk.

Efficient Installation

With only a minimum 5-inch foundation depth and zero requirement for reinforcing metal rebar, the G-1441 requires significantly less material and labor than other shallow mount options. As a result, the cost and man-hours required for installation is diminished as well, saving you time and money in the process. Further, if you’re installing in an area with pre-existing utilities under the sidewalk or concrete pad, there’s no need to reroute, resulting in additional cost savings.
