Ramming vehicle attacks have been talked about in media often in recent years. These type of attacks are usually considered a big challenge by security managers. These types of attachs cause great damage and unfortunately often human casualties are to be regretted. Meausures of extreme physical nature often are needed to prevent these attacks. Using bollards around the site’s perimeter is one solution to prevent unauthorized vehicles from trying to forece their wau into the secured perimeter.

EL-GO Team questions whether it is necessary to use deep mount bollards everywhere to provide the required protection. Often shallow mount bollards are good enough to meet security needs and requirements.

Why consider shallow mount bollards rather than deep mount bollards?

Undoubtedly, installing bollards often is considered one of the best ways to achieve high protection levels against vehicle attacks. However, sometimes deep excavation is npt possible or affordable. In those circumstances, the shallow mounted bollards are a great solution, which offers greater flexibility in installation.

Here are some reasons to select shallow mount bollards over deep mount bollards:

  • In some places you are simply not allowed to make a deep excavation. It could be because groundwater levels are close to the surface. Or maybe archeological finds need protection. But you must install bollards to protect the facility or street. Shallow mount bollards are ultimate solution.
  • Shallow mount bollards are also considered a “greener” solution since less machinery and less concrete are used. With some basic machinery on-site, you can deploy these bollards without affecting the environment too much.
  • Shallow mount bollards are crash certified and provide complete protection against heavy-duty vehicles.
