Avon Scimitar SB970CR Static Bollard

SB970CR Scimitar Static Bollard

The Avon SB970CR Scimitar Static Bollard is a PAS 68 impact design rated fixed bollard, a high level of physical perimeter protection.

The bollard stands at 1m above finished foundation and can incorporate an optional dressing including block paving, tarmac or shingle, enabling the bollard to seamlessly integrate with surrounding environments.

The bollard’s foundation has been designed by experts in the field of PAS 68 & hostile vehicle mitigation.

The bollards can be installed on the perimeter line of buildings to create a stand off distance, and are ideal to restrict vehicle access to public areas, whilst allowing members of the public to move freely.  A line of fixed bollards will prevent a vehicle from driving at force into an unauthorised area, such as the front of an airport terminal, sports stadium or a pedestrian retail area.
