Foundation requirements for PAS68 high security bollard installations need to be sized and designed according to the impact energy specified for the project.
Heng Jiang Cheng, Leda’s high Risk Sites Manager explains. “A well designed, torsionally-reinforced continuous beam foundation will exhibit minimal displacement and rotation at point of impact. Energy absorbed at point of engagement, especially in high-energy impacts, (which are dynamic in nature) is typically absorbed in part by the foundation”.
Leda’s intimate understanding of foundation requirements is the result of years of actual crash testing, with the formidable research backing by the UK Government’s Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure and support from a peer group from the Hostile Vehicle Mitigation Programme.
