  • Course Description: AEC Daily: Security and Crash-Rated Bollards


    Modern security bollards are highly engineered and tested devices that can withstand deliberate ramming by a 15,000 lb vehicle. Bollards are more than decorative boundary markers; they are an essential tool to protect lives and property. This course explains bollard crash testing standards, reviews the pros and cons of available bollard materials, and discusses steel bollard designs for low- and high-impact applications.



    Learning Objectives

    Describe applicable testing standards for high- and low-speed crash testing of security bollards.

    Differentiate between low-impact and high-impact bollard applications and identify the appropriate types of steel bollard for each application.

    Describe the key features of high-impact steel bollards including crash test ratings, footing design, and shrapnel control.

    Recall the most common bollard materials and their advantages and disadvantages.

    Discuss the hazards of using concrete bollards and concrete-filled bollards for high-impact applications.
