BEGA drive-through protection for trucks certified

An effective answer to an increased hazard potential: vehicles with a total weight of 7.5 tonnes cannot break through BEGA drive-through protection bollards from our LED system bollards range even at speeds of 50 kph. This is documented by a certification that is recognised worldwide: neuralgic areas in inner cities, in front of commercial units, buildings and other spaces can be effectively shielded from vehicles with our LED system bollards.

Crashtest-Service GmbH in Münster, Germany, is a certified testing authority for safety benchmarking of worldwide renown. Our drive-through protection was tested and certified for a 7.5 tonnes vehicle impacting at 50 km/h. Not only can the BEGA system bollard hold up a truck travelling at this speed without being torn out of its anchorage – the vehicle is immobilised through the collision at this speed.

With this drive-through protection module, an additional sensitive aspect is effectively covered after intensive investigation, thus documenting another BEGA quality feature in terms of design and development.

The round drive-through protection bollard tubes with a diameter of 265 mm can be ordered for effective defence against trucks with a total weight of up to 7.5 tonnes.

The square drive-through protection bollard tubes with an edge length of 220 mm offer certified drive-through protection for passenger cars with a total weight of up to 1.5 tonnes.

The BEGA system bollard tubes with drive-through protection are installed on exactly calculated reinforced foundations and their interior consists of reinforced concrete. BEGA provides the construction plans for the drive-through protection foundations, on which the LED system bollards will then be installed.

Our luminaires with drive-through protection will then be able to withstand the tractive forces of a vehicle impact with ease. As a modular system, our LED system bollards offer a variety of combinations of bollard heads and bollard tubes. In this way, the safety aspect can be combined with your individual requirements for illumination with state-of-the-art LED technology – with BEGA luminaires that set new standards in terms of design and construction.
