Automatic retractable or automatic telescoping bollards are used in high traffic areas. Where deploying and retracting automatic bollards is higher in frequency.  Our bollards can raise or lower on command in 3 to 5 seconds. 

      The Automatic bollards we use are Pneumatic, Hydraulic, and Electronic Piston Drive Systems. Each system has its own unique characteristics with how it moves the automatic bollards, and also differences in their efficiency and maintenance. Electronic Piston Drive Systems uses an electric motor to push the piston within the cylinder. These systems have the highest precision control, and are also the quietest of all the other systems. Pneumatic uses compressed air to move a piston in a linear motion within the cylinder. The advantages of this system is its simplicity, accuracy, minimal maintenance, and the cost being less. Hydraulic systems use an in-compressible fluid being pushed by a pump within the cylinder. To give the automatic bollards their linear motion. The hydraulic system has the highest force output being almost 25 times greater force than a pneumatic system.   

How do Automatic Bollards work?

The raising or lowering of an automatic bollard can be initiated by a person stationed in a guard house. Also by someone placing the right code into a remotely mounted touch pad, or by a car occupant, pressing a remote transmitter. Also we have an unique signal emitter used in vehicles. Which allows the automatic bollards to recognize the signal. To allow access into the location.

If you have a project considering ‘arm barriers’ or automatic gates, consider an automatic retractable bollard in lieu of any other choice –NO ONE will challenge a steel bollard!  Bollard Solutions has an excellent automatic bollard system tailored for you.  Manufactured originally with the US market in mind, it can perform any function an owner would want through control systems that dictate when the retractable bollards will rise or retract in less than 5 seconds.
