Matador4 Heald in high regard
First publishedin World Highways
Heald says its Matador4 bollard was fully functional with zero penetration and dispersion after being struck by a 7,500kg truck travelling at 48kph during a recent crash test.
The model, comprising two central moving bollards and based on the Matador3, gives a clear opening of just over 4metres.
Surface mounted and only needing to be bolted into place, the Matador4 is said by Heald to be ideal for a variety of applications including temporary installations.
A company spokesperson said: “One of the benefits of this new system is the bollard does not lower into the ground so is therefore visible to users at all times making transit extremely safe for the driver and also any passing pedestrians.”
