Protecting Alfresco Areas

When we talk about protecting crowded places, alfresco dining and cafe areas around the country are undoubtedly in the list of locations to be protected – protecting alfresco areas. 

Leda being a leader in physical security & hostile vehicle mitigation has been at the forefront of securing council properties & alfresco spaces for many years, with aesthetically attractive bollards and street furniture protecting people and assets from accidents and vehicle attacks. We have installed a range of impact rated & engineered bollards, bollard bike hoops, logs, seating and street
furniture for a number of councils in Australia.

“Car crashes into cafe, before hitting taxi in Eastwood, Sydney’s north-west.”
Fatal crashes involving older drivers are on the rise and headlines like the above have become all too common in the news cycle. In February 2020 a woman died and nine others were injured after an elderly driver accidentally drove into a cafe in Sydney’s north-west.

Crash tested bollards are the gold standard of impact protection as they provide certainty of performance. Our PAS170 crash tested bollards can stop a 2.5t vehicle at 16 or 32Km/hr & is an ideal solution in areas where pedestrians & vehicles are in close proximity. Crash tested as a single bollard it can be dressed with an aesthetically attractive sleeve making it part of street landscape & framework. Also, Leda has a range of engineered rated shallow mount bollards for alfresco spaces, if foundation depth becomes a constraint.
