Shock Absorbing Bollard

By R.J Cox Engineering
  • Shock Absorbing Bollard

Our Centurian range of fixed, retractable and removable steel bollards is designed for traffic control and property protection. Centurian bollards are available in either surface mount or in-ground models, with or without chain rings.

The SAB (Shock Absorbing Bollard) has the ability to shift sideways if hit at or near ground level. If the impact is higher up the bollard, it can tilt up to 8 degrees at which point it locks up offering maximum protection.
Alternatively, if the contact is of a deflection or glancing nature, the SAB is able to rotate through 360 degrees (in-ground model only). SAB’s are designed to be used anywhere vehicles are manoeuvring at low speeds, such as carparks and warehouses etc.
The self centering design means the SAB’s can take repeated impacts without incurring permanent damage. They simply absorb the impact and return to their original position.
These unique characteristics result from the combination of clever engineering and the use of high tech composite materials. SAB’s are available in 140mm diameter in either core drilled in-ground (pictured) or surface mounted models.
Note: Not recommended for high speed traffic environments.
