Certified shallow mounted bollard
Z-HFFP 273

truck hits bollard while crashtest

This certified shallow mounted bollard is meant to protect people and visitors of crowded places in inner cities and event areas. Due to its depressed installation depth of only 300 mm, the Z-HFFP 273 is especially suitable for inner city market places, walkway or bicycle lanes. The local conditions – i.e. supply circuits, sewage pipes or drains won`t collide with the shallow foundations, but the foundation will also ensure a long-lasting and secure access protection on one of the highest ever tested levels.

ZABAG‘s fixed and shallow mounted bollard Z-HFFP 273 successfully passed the crash test at the authorized Crash Test Service Center in Münster with a 12t truck and more than 80 km/h without any problem. This complies to a kinetic energy of 3.043 KJ and an equivalent static load of 1.522 KN (certificate according to IWA 14-1:2013 Bollard V/12000[N3D]/80/90/5.4).

Due to design and construction, the system can be integrated perfectly into its surroundings by followings curves and by using different bollard covers. Pedestrians, cyclists, wheelchair and baby buggy users can pass the bollards without disturbance.

To allow access to authorized vehicles, police or emergency service, the system is combinable with the retractable bollards out of our range.
