With the increasing occurrence of terror attacks around the world, Sydney’s city council has been taking steps to enhance security around public spaces in the city centre. In June this year, the council installed concrete bollards along Martin Place at the location of the Lindt Café siege, to prevent terrorist attacks like those we have seen in London, Barcelona and Nice.

By installing bollards, we ensure our right to move freely without fear. Australian Bollards is proud to assist with this process by…

Access control made easy

Access control made easy

Installations, Removable Bollards
Australian Bollard’s ‘MySpace’ Bollard is a popular access control solution throughout Australia. Being light in weight, key lockable and having a simple twist off removal process, the bollards provide user friendly operation. Recently, the MySpace Bollards were installed at a site in Box Hill, in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. Our client was having issues with unauthorised people driving into their premises without permission. However, they could not permanently block it off as their cars needed to drive down at times.   The bollards provided the ideal solution to ensure easy access control. Another installation was at the Lyceum club based in Melbourne’s CBD. The Lyceum club is an arts, literature and social activism club for women. The MySpace bollard was needed to deter placement of objects in a protected area. The area is…

Customising bollards to seamlessly blend in

Installations, News, Removable Bollards
Gippsland Water has demonstrated that security doesn’t have to be boring or uniform with a beautiful custom installation. The installation consists of nine green powder coated bollards matching the colour of the electric cabinet they protect, taking a soft approach to hard security. Made by Australian Bollards, these custom bollards don’t just improve safety. They are also an aid in expressing the company’s identity. The bollards provide a flexible solution to Gippsland Water’s needs. Three of them are key lockable My Space bollards. They can be removed during the day and locked in place at night to prevent access. Another six fixed bollards make up a solid barrier at the back. Before Gippsland Water’s electric cabinet was fully exposed to car crashes or vandalism. Now the cabinet is protected by this…
