Automated M50

Supamaxx Hostile Vehicle Mitigation Bollards product family offers solutions for entries where pedestrians may enter unhindered but vehicle traffic is to be stopped. The attractive design makes the bollard useable in inner city surroundings and can be used for city security and traffic management.

Applications can range from temporary closing of city centres – but still allowing vehicles with permission to pass – to real estate properties with high security needs. Supamaxx products are widely used on military sites, at government buildings, embassies, banks and city centres.

All movable bollards are equipped with an integrated hydraulic drive. The advantages of this drive technology are maximum power transmission and working reliability under most adverse weather conditions. During power failure the bollards can be lowered manually. The blocking width can be varied by the number of bollards in a row. Up to five bollards can be operated with one common control unit.
