Perimeter Protection Group has revealed that its M50 hydraulic bollard has successfully passed the ASTM F2656-07 M50 crash test at Karco Engineering in California. A 6.8 tonne truck impacted the bollard with a speed of 80km/h. The bollard resisted and achieved a P2 rating. The bollard is claimed to be ideal for high security applications like airports, diplomatic sites, military sites, power plants, prisons etc.. In such sites, the demand for high security protection is growing continuously. The bollard boasts a shallow foundation of 400mm (excluding the lowering part for the bollard), and the hydraulic power unit is self-contained, adding ease and flexibility to the installation process.
