Another revolutionary product from Heald, the Matador is a completely new design, it is a surface mounted, automated bollard system.
On Thursday 17th November 2011, tests were undertaken on our new surface mounted automatic bollard system.
The HT1 - Matador comprises two fixed bollards mounted on a plate with a third automatic sliding bollard central to the fixed bollards. On command, this bollard simply slides to the side to allow passage of a vehicle, and slides back to protect the location.
This is a revolutionary product - the world's first and only true surface mounted Automated Bollard (Patent application number GB1119393.5).
Special design to prevent ingress of dirt or debris.
Fully Health & Safety compliant - no pinch points or trap hazards, no voids as complete moving mechanism is fully contained within the base plate.
The bollard simply slides into position to protect the location and slides diagonally on command to allow vehicle entry and exit.
The Matador is surface mounted and can be bolted to a concrete road or base with 18 No. M20 safety plus bolts by Heald.
Successfully crash tested and has received the performance classification V/7500[N2]/48/90:0.0/0.0
Operating speed - approx. 6 secs.
Would be suitable for any site, also sites requiring temporary security measures or surface mount solutions.
Like all our systems, the Matador can be supplied with various access control systems or integrated with existing security systems.
