Matador Sliding Bollard System to be Exhibited at Counter Terror Expo 2013 by Heald
We will be showcasing the Matador surface mounted automated sliding bollard system at Counter Terror Expo this year. We would like to invite you to visit our stand B65 which is just to your left as you step through the door.
Heald’s flagship product, the Matador is fast becoming the number one choice for both temporary and permanent security solutions.
The combination of product strength and ease of installation is making the product very popular. Many customers are seeing the Matador as a superior security solution for a variety of different applications. Tested to PAS68, the Matador offers a very high level of security against vehicle attack.
Due to its innovative design, not only is it capable of withstanding hostile vehicle attacks, the Matador complies with health and safety standards ensuring the safety of pedestrian access. There are no pinch points, trap hazards or voids as the moving mechanism is fully contained within the base plate. The sliding bollard(s) maintains a distance from the fixed bollards which makes pedestrian movement safe, even while the unit is functioning.
It is also important to note that because the moving bollard(s) slides to one side (rather than retracting into the ground), it is completely visible throughout its movement. Drivers will therefore be much more aware of the moving bollard’s position and will not attempt to sneak through if they see the bollard closing. This makes the whole system very safe for vehicle users and highly effective in preventing unauthorised vehicle access.
The Matador was installed as a temporary security solution at two of the venues at last years Olympic Games, proving it is suitable for temporary or permanent installation.
