Damage and Repair

When a catastrophic strike against a bollard occurs the repair to the system is simple. The modular pad/bollard system has been designed to remove that single bollard, not affecting the pad as a whole. Simply cut out the damaged area to the cross pieces near the adjacent bollards and remove the damaged bollard base structure as shown.

Afterwards replace that part with an RSA supplied insert, Place the insert back into the trench and utilize the RSA supplied steel splicing elements to field fillet weld the insert to the existing structure, Afterward, fill the system with 3,000 p.s.i. concrete as in the original pour.

Aesthetic

The modular design of the Anti-Ram Foundation Pad allows the addition of existing and new street furniture and cityscape elements coupled to our 6 to 10 inch diameter anti-ram bollard stems.

The numerous creative perimeter protection options allowed by the Foundation Pad System not only complement and enhance building facades and surroundings but also belie the fact that the perimeter is impermeable to vehicular attack.

Basic Design

The modular and prefabricated design of the Foundation Bollard Pad System provides maximum flexibility in meeting site conditions and unique configurations, RSA offers a variety of custom applications including straight runs, curves, rounds, 1/2 rounds and sloped units.

Corner Units

To achieve ADA compliance for Wheel Chair Access, the RSA Foundation Bollard Pad system is fabricated integral with the apron of the ADA wheel chair access corner curb.

The base pads may be angled out to avoid any bollard being in the apron as well as utilizing two bollards per base pad if required.

Field Installation

Standard bollard installations require tedious excavation work with unwieldy forms and templates; they also require creating on-site rebar setups, Installation of the Foundation Bollard Pad System can result in significant savings in installation costs associated with standard bollards. The Foundation Bollard Pad can be installed at the rate of 1 foot per minute and is delivered as pre-fabricated units with integrated rebar caging to the site. All rebar is integral to the system as the segments can be as long as 50 feet, it requires only a 4 to 5 foot wide shallow (8.25 to 14 inches deep) trench, has no need for forms and uses 75% less concrete than standard bollards. A significant cost of physical perimeter security systems is the installation itself. using a modular, prefabricated system, RSA can cut installation costs up to 60%,

K4 Testing

On November 15, 2004, the Department of State certified the Foundation Bollard Pad system at K4 (15,000 lb. vehicle at
30mph). The crash tests were held at the Pennsylvania Transportation Institute and the results were that the test vehicle
ended up at a penetration of negative 9.5 feet. The single bollard that was struck bent forward 5.75 inches along the top. The
system is rated as a three-bollard pad,

Again, on April 4, 2005, at the KARCO Crash Test Facility, a Foundation Bollard Pad sustained a K4 crash test rating. This particular 6.51' test article uses a 5" base trench with a 1 1/2" concrete or stone paver covering, In this DOS certified K4 test, the 15,000 lb. vehicle hit the test article at 30 mph and rebounded a negative 58".

Layout

The modular design of the Anti-Ram Foundation Pad allows the addition of existing and new street furniture and cityscape elements coupled to our 6 to 10 inch diameter anti-ram bollard stems. The numerous creative perimeter protection options allowed by the Foundation Pad System not only complement and enhance building facades and surroundings but also belie the fact that the perimeter is impermeable to vehicular attack.

Manufacturing

The pads are custom fabricated off-line at 3, 4 or 5 feet on center and delivered to the site ready for instant installation. All rebar is also integral to the system as segments can be as long as 50 feet. A unique feature of the Anti-Ram Foundation Bollard Pad is that it requires only an 8.25 to 14 inches deep trench to place a pre- fabricated bollard system for all DOS rated criteria.
