In retail or pedestrian areas it may be desirable or even necessary to physically close the area to motor vehicle traffic. An automatic (or dynamic) barrier like a bollard is the ideal solution for selectively closing such an area.
TMC provides a comprehensive range of bollards in various heights, diameters, materials and finishes.
A bollard moves hydraulically and is controlled from a central (electrical) enclosure. Detection loops in the road surface detect a vehicle, which signals the bollard to lower. A green traffic signal indicates that the driver can pass. The detection loops also ensure that the bollard does not come up too soon.
A bollard system can be controlled by detection loops or operated "manually", by offering a proximity card or a special coin at a control column.
The bollard can be remote controlled by a ANPR camera, or by a vehicle equipped with a transponder card or a separate remote control unit. After contact via an intercom system the bollard can also be remotely lowered by an operator in a control room.
