A Guide to Choosing Rising Bollards

Modern architectural planning demands higher control over vehicle entry and exit, making traditional gate and barrier equipment increasingly inadequate. Traditional gates and barriers are prone to damaging the overall architectural style of the building, and cannot prevent intentional vehicle collisions. Automatic driveway bollards are suitable for high-frequency and high-security vehicle entry and exit occasions. In addition to replacing traditional gates and doors, they can improve the safety of the maintenance site, enhance the overall level and image, and their underground design does not damage the overall architectural style of the building. They are suitable for sensitive control of vehicle entry and exit at checkpoints such as government agencies, prisons, border checkpoints, customs, railway stations and ports, airports, high-end residential villas, pedestrian streets, banks, toll stations, parking lots, and parks. They can prevent vehicles from forcefully rushing through, ensuring the safety and normal order of the intersection.

Considerations for choosing automatic driveway bollards

Width of the passage

The width of the passage to be managed determines the number of devices needed. Usually, keeping the distance between the center of the columns below 1.5 meters is sufficient. Different usage scenarios can control the spacing width according to their actual needs.

Traffic flow

This is one of the most important parameters in choosing products, but users often overlook it. It is important to know the annual/monthly total traffic flow and average daily traffic flow at the installation site.

Frequency of use

It is important to know the short-term traffic flow of the vehicle during peak hours at the site.

Lifting speed

This parameter is often the most concerning.

Security level of the usage scenario

Although all lifting columns have the role of blocking vehicles, the blocking effect of civilian products and professional level anti-products on vehicles is vastly different.

Group management

Whether the entrance and exit of the lanes need to be separated or managed by lane group determines the configuration and selection of the entire control system.

Rainfall and drainage

Automatic driveway bollards need to be buried deep below the ground, so they will inevitably be soaked in water. If the site has a large amount of rainfall, high probability of heavy rain, poor drainage system, low terrain or shallow groundwater and other factors, you must be careful when choosing equipment because the equipment you choose may be submerged in water for a long time. In addition to doing basic drainage work, structural factors of the device should also be considered.

Implementing protection functions

Fully automatic lifting columns can achieve safety protection through external infrared or vehicle detectors. Since fully automatic lifting columns are used to manage vehicles, vehicle detectors are more common. Since the lifting column is buried deep below the ground, the method of laying the ground sensing coil is different from that of gate products. There are currently two main ways to lay the ground sensing coil.

When choosing, it is important to be aware of the parameter conditions above and choose a product suitable for a wide range of applications, such as at road intersections, toll stations, government agencies, high-end communities, and other places with security requirements.

Daily Maintenance of automatic driveway bollards

  • Regularly dust and maintain the automatic driveway bollard equipment to keep the column body clean. Do not use hard materials for cleaning.

  • Regularly add lubricating oil to the self-locking mechanism and keyhole to ensure that the column body locking system operates flexibly.

  • Regularly remove the column body core and tighten the mechanical fixing structure of the column body with screws.

  • Regularly remove the column body core and lubricate and maintain the mechanical sliding part and guiding part of the column body.
