Newcastle City Council has recently completed the installation of a number of X-Last Gorge model bollards to line the streets of the CBD and to feature at the front of the War Memorial.
The X-Last range of bollards are a rigid but fully flexible-recoverable design. This makes them the perfect choice for traffic and parking areas where a high volumes of traffic are anticipated.
With Newcastle City Council anticipating a number of impacts to the bollards the small initial premium paid (over traditional metal or timber bollards) is quickly recovered when the impacted bollards rebound to the fully upright position rather than having to replace or repair the impacted bollard. The photo below shows a bollard that has been impacted numerous times but standing in the upright position.
In areas where temporary access is required the removable type of bollard has been installed. Council chose to include the severe impact ring during installation to ensure long lasting durability of the bollards.
The Gorge model of bollard is available in 80mm or 100mm diameter and is available in a range of heights. The bollard is available as a permanent fixture or to work with a removable base. Clients also have the choice to include the reflective tape to aid in night time visibility.
