How do Automatic Rising Bollards Work?

Automatic bollards are barriers that increase safety by restricting vehicle access in certain areas.

Using sensor detection, they automatically retract into the ground and allow authorised vehicles to pass before rising back to their original position. Official personnel (such as security guards) can also control vehicle access by remotely operating automatic bollards, having them lowered for authorised entries only.

Benefits of Automatic Rising Bollards

Automatic bollard systems have several different applications, including traffic control and security.

Electric driveway bollards allow you to effectively secure certain areas in a convenient, hassle-free way. We unpack these benefits in more detail below.

Safety & Security

Automatic bollards are often used as a high security method for access control. When raised, they create a robust barrier that prevents unauthorised vehicular access to an area.

In places with lots of traffic, rising bollards are used to regulate traffic flow and/or stop vehicles from entering pedestrian areas. This enables pedestrians to walk freely and reduces their risk of being in motor-related accidents.

Automatic security bollards are also a simple way to secure access to driveways, loading bays, and parking lots. Additionally, the sturdy design of electric bollards means they’re often used to protect buildings and stores against ram raids.

Automation for Easy Access Control

Once you have installed automatic rising bollards, you will undoubtedly gain a new perspective on safety and security.

Barriers do not have to be immovable to provide effective protection. In fact, one of the main benefits of electric security bollards is their automatic rising function, which provides convenient and easy access control, as well as versatility.

As experts in gates, fencing and metalwork, we can manufacture and install both commercial and residential driveway bollards — all designed to simplify your security solutions.

Our Automatic Rising Bollards

At Gates Scotland, we offer several unique features to make your life easier and ensure you get the automated bollards best suited to your wants and needs. As market leaders in gate hardware and electrics, you can rest assured that our products are of the highest standard.

This is what you can expect when you choose Gates Scotland for your electric rising bollards:

Flexible Sizing

Our automatic rising bollards are available in various heights and widths. This customisable design makes our rising security bollards suitable for usage in different locations, including private or commercial property and public areas.

Available with Drawings

When you purchase our automatic bollards, we generate two-dimensional models and computer-aided design (CAD) drawings of your chosen product based on your specifications. These will allow you to better visualise your automatic bollard system before confirming your order.

Galvanised as Standard

We provide standard galvanisation for all our products, including our metal bollards for driveways. This process involves coating each automatic bollard in zinc, which results in a silver coating that deters rust and ensures long-lasting protection from outdoor elements.

Powder Coating in Any RAL Colour

Our optional powder coating finish gives you the chance to personalise your automatic bollards with a top layer in any RAL colour of your choosing. Not only is this feature aesthetically pleasing, but it’s also particularly useful when it comes to consistent branding for businesses. Additionally, powder coating is a long-lasting finish that, unlike paint, requires no maintenance.
