CAME Americas, LLC/Urbaco High Security Bollards
Designed and manufactured to ensure the safety of strategic access against ram vehicles, the Urbaco range of high security bollards meets the most demanding requirements of access control and impact resistance.
With applications in airports, government or military facilities and other buildings requiring heightened security, Urbaco bollards are so solid that three bollards together can withstand the impact generated by a seven-ton truck traveling 30 mph.
Even when fully extended, more than one-fourth the length of bollard head remains inline by the patented monobloc double-lid, increasing impact resistance.
CAME Americas also manufactures high security bollards for a culture of destruction, terrorism and death per project-specific risk assessment.
CAME Americas, LLC/Urbaco Traffic Access Control and Decorative Bollards
Non-crash-resistant bollards are perceived as access impediments by law-abiding persons; and as proscriptive to those potentially more threatening or disruptive by alerting them additional levels of security await intrusion. Typically these bollards are used by office buildings, universities, hospitals and medical establishments, airports, libraries and courthouses.
Bollards can be retractable: manual, semi-automatic, electro-pneumatic and electro-hydraulic; non-retractable/fixed; and removable. Most bollard styles offer a lighted ring as an option. Offered in a variety of styles, sizes and finishes, CAME Americas bollards fulfill the needs of traffic/access control in most culture-of-civility applications.
Tradition Removable Bollards and Posts
With the patented Fixator System Urbaco bollards can be removed from the ground quickly and easily by hand. Simply unlock, twist and release.
Removable bollards are the simplest and most efficient, cost effective solution to control the temporary opening of an otherwise closed access or parking space. The Cabestan range is popular for quayside developments while the Arlésiennes model is particularly well suited to historical sites. Urbaco has the range of designs to compliment any environment.
Urbaco uses cast iron and stainless steel in manufacturing its products. All bollards are finished with powder and zinc coating and available in the standard range of six RAL colors. Delivery is within three to four weeks from the date an order is received.
Generation 6 Fixed Bollards and Posts
Urbaco's range of fixed bollards and posts are most suitable on public or private grounds to border roads, parking areas or simply to protect grounds where vehicles are not allowed.
Fixed bollards are usually embedded in concrete at their bases. The shape of the embedding base differs depending on the model and has the option to be extended to increase impact resistance.
The forms and dimensions of the Generation 6 range are identical to the automatic and semi-automatic retractable bollards, making it possible to maintain aesthetic harmony in urban developments without sacrificing functionality.
CAME Americas, LLC/Urbaco Energy Bollards
Urbaco energy distribution units can be either fixed or retractable bollards, which allow access to utilities: water, telephone, power, compressed air, cable TV, etc.
Energy bollards allow users to receive energy and services at a given time and place, immediately, without extending wires over long distances, while enhancing the surroundings and improving safety.
Urbaco's energy distribution bollards attain the highest standard requirements and are approved and certified by the Central Laboratory of Electrical Installations.
Retractable Energy Distribution Bollards
The retractable unit for power supply, invented by Urbaco, facilitates energy supply into a unit that retracts completely into the ground after use. It allows power, telephone or water supply. The Urbaco power supply retractable bollard was awarded the Bronze Pyramid at the 1993 International Innovation Contest in Paris.
With just the turn of a key, the bollard rises alone and locks automatically in the raised position. A push of the foot makes it retract and lock in the lower position. The waterproof level of the units protects the electrical components from oxidation and bad contacts. Wires and extension cables are not run on the ground, avoiding possible hazards. Robust design makes the energy supply vandal-proof. The cover, casing, carriage, cross hitch and rails are guaranteed for 10 years.
Fixed Energy Distribution Bollards
The fixed bollard for power supply is designed to easily make multiple voltage connections. It is available as a single version (up to six sockets) or double version (up to 12 sockets). The options are a power, water and combined version.
The bollard is installed by fastening mason screws into a concrete slab. The waterproof level of the units protects the electrical components from oxidation and bad contacts. Users are protected from electric shock. As an option, it is possible to connect one or more sockets while keeping the door closed to avoid unauthorized connections. Made from cast steel and aluminum, this unit gives unequaled impact and vandal resistance.
CAME Americas’ bollards are sold as customized systems specific to each installation. Contact CAME Americas LLC for specific project requirements as well as accessories, options and features not documented here.
