Company Profile

  • Auto & Static (Fixed) Bollards

    Avon’s Scimitar Hydraulic and Static Bollard range provides mitigation solutions against hostile vehicle attack where aesthetics and public perception are a consideration, with a selection of decorative sleeves available to complement street furniture and building architecture, the Scimitar Bollard range are all tested using a 7500kg vehicle but at different speeds and foundation depths.

    Our Avon SSF100 Resilience Bollard has a structural foundation depth of just 100mm. Its unique design allows it to be installed with the minimum of disruption to existing walkways or pavements. The bollards can be supplied with a variety of stainless steel sleeves for a modern finish, an ideal solution for providing blast standoff protection for airport passenger terminal buildings.
