A British company has released a dramatic video showing a speeding truck being destroyed by an anti-terrorism bollard.Heald’s new HT2-Matador 3 surface mounted sliding bollard system is an evolution of our groundbreaking HT1-Matador.

It is perfect for sites where even a shallow mount is impossible and has been IWA-14 tested to halt a 7.2 tonne truck travelling at 64 kph.

The Matador halts the vehicle with zero penetration, and continues to function following the impact.It works using electro-hydraulic, electro-mechanical or manual operation and can be supplied with an Emergency Fast Operation feature, allowing the bollard to close in around 1.5 seconds in emergency situations.

It also features a special mechanism to secure the central bollard in the locked position, ensuring that it cannot be moved or pushed open.It comes with the user-friendly Hydra control and monitoring system.
