Bell® Traffic Bollard

Description

Furnitubes Bell® bollard is the original and only traffic bollard that can solve multiple traffic management problems and is proven to save lives. The BELL 100 bollard is a simple yet effective solution to potential vehicle damage and costly repair. Following an extensive study of lorry wheels and undercarriages, a design was created to enable the deflection of a vehicle’s wheels, whilst itself remaining firmly in place and undamaged. The bollard’s profile is designed to encourage a vehicle’s tyres initially to mount its lower curve. By increasing the slope-angle of the bollard above this point, any attempt by the vehicle to rise further is prevented by deflecting the tyre sharply away.

Bell bollards can provide a stable vehicular barrier, as even high axled lorries would not be able to drive over an obstruction of this height, without causing irreparable damage to its drive train and steering mechanisms. Positioned and aligned at appropriate distances across the road, Bell Bollards can also act as effective width restrictors, preventing oversize vehicles from passing through.

Benefits:

  • Proven to last for over 25 years.
  • Saves lives - by actively keeping vehicles away from pedestrians.
  • Saves money - long term savings on replacement street furniture and building repairs.
  • Unique design - up to 360° deflection of vehicles with minimal risk of vehicle damage.
  • Genuine article - Furnitubes are the only manufacturers of the Bell bollard in the UK.
  • Versatile - seven versions of the Bell to solve any traffic management problem.

Variations:

  • BELL 115 has been designed to allow the installation of a Bell bollard and a 115 mm diameter post or bollard within the same footings. The combination will deflect vehicles and protect structures from damage, whilst also acting as a high visibility post.
  • BELL 150 has been designed to allow the installation of a Bell bollard and a 150 mm diameter post or bollard within the same footings. The combination will deflect vehicles and protect structures from damage, whilst also acting as a high visibility post.
  • The BELL 138 variation has a recess designed specifically to house a CIT 538 City Bollard. In addition to providing improved visibility, it also enables the Bell to blend seamlessly within locations where City bollards are used.
  • For protection to corners of buildings and exposed brickwork, BELL 340 is a suitable solution. The shape is the same as a standard bell, but with a segment removed, to allow for easy installation without having to disturb the fabric of the corner.
  • BELL 120 is suitable for protecting the sides of structures. The shape is the same as a standard Bell, but with a segment removed to allow for easy installation without having to disturb the fabric of existing structures.
  • BELL 500X has a unique steel sub frame that performs as well as the Bell 100 in situations where underground services make installation difficult, whilst also being easier to transport and handle.
