Macs Automated Bollard Systems have helped Hertfordshire County Council with their automatic retractable bollards to improve the safety, efficiency and vehicle control for vehicles and pedestrians in Hatfield.
The installation surrounding the University of Hertfordshire, controls assess at two main entrances to the De Havilland Campus in Hatfield, helping to provide a safe pedestrian area.
Macs PASS 275/800 bollards were installed to replace the existing retractable bollards.
The existing traffic light posts were also replaced with more efficient LED lights, and positioned at correct distances from the bollards.
With the ANPR system supplied by Videalert, number plates of each vehicle that approach the vehicle can be read and allowed access.
They were supplied in a stainless steel finish, standing 800mm high and with a diameter of 275mm.
Macs bollards have a heavy cycle of 2 Million continuous operations and impact resistance to 40,000 Joules.
The system is also equipped with a ‘Safety Pressure Switch’, flashing LED lights on the bollard head, and audible warning sounder.
230V control boards are used, utilising PLC programming, to run and regulate all functions of the bollards and accessory equipment.
Macs bespoke bollard control and fault monitoring systems to report and record all aspects of system performance, status and faults.
The data is fed back to the Hertfordshire County Council Control Room locally, and to Macs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
