Bully Boy Bollard System

Bully Boy Bollard System

The Bully Boy High Security Bollard needed to prove that it could stop a 6,800 kg truck travelling at 80 km/h. Following feasibility testing, the system proved it had the structural capacity to handle the task but during this process we noticed the ability to improve the product in a number of areas. Opportunities existed in manufacture, assembly, installation and operation. We redesigned and retested the system creating a more robust, reliable and refined product with greater market appeal and reduced cost. Needless to say, Bully Boy Ltd were one very happy customer.

Bully Boy Bollard System

Bully Boy Ltd initially invited us to validate the impact performance of their High Security Bollard to the requirements of ASTM F2656-07 Condition Designation M50. In layman’s terms that translates to testing the bollard‘s performance when met with a 6,800 kg truck travelling at 80 km/h.

We assisted Bully Boy in the development, detailed design and testing of their high containment, security rated Bully Boy Bollard System. During this initial project we identified a range of improvements that would increase the robustness and reliability of the bollard. Gains could be made and costs reduced across the product life; from assembly and manufacturing right through to installation and operation.

Bully Boy agreed with our suggestions and engaged us to redesign the system. The newly designed system was put back through the rigours of the ASTM testing and met all the require demands. The project was deemed to be a resounding success with a more robust, reliable and refined design with greater market appeal at reduced cost. Who wouldn’t be happy with results like that?!?
