2018: Gibraltar Supplies Phase 2 of Anti-Ram Bollards for Las Vegas Boulevard.
MARBLE FALLS, Texas, September 27, 2018/ -- Gibraltar, a leading manufacturer of anti-ram vehicle barriers used across the globe has announced they have been awarded the second phase to supply bollards to be installed on Las Vegas Boulevard to protect pedestrians from errant vehicles.
Gibraltar supplied a combination of proprietary shallow foundation bollards and standard foundation bollards for the project. The bollard types used on the project were created to meet ASTM F2656-07 M50 P1 requirements. The bollards were designed to withstand a 15,000 lbs. (7.5 tons) medium-duty vehicle traveling at 50mph. The P1 designation means the lower leading edge of the medium-duty truck bed penetrated less than 1 meter from the backside of the bollard upon impact.
The 600+ anti-ram bollards Gibraltar supplied are currently being installed by UNICON Contracting of Las Vegas, Nevada.
"We feel blessed to supply bollards on the second phase of this project. Having experience in dealing with these large scale orders in the past puts us in a good spot to compete well. We have a product that performs well, is versatile, and is relatively easy to install for the contractors," says Joseph Hauss, Director of Sales for Gibraltar.
Crash-rated bollards are a key component of Gibraltar's anti-ram barrier portfolio, which includes offerings of crash certified fences, anti-ram crash gates, wedge barriers, portable/mobile vehicle barriers and vertical lift barriers. Gibraltar's barriers can be found on the Department of Defense (DOD) Anti-Ram Barrier List.
