Stopping Vehicle Incursions

tthompson Crashes

THE PROBLEM

Vehicle incursion accidents happen every day all over the United States. As the driving population ages, the frequency of such accidents will likely increase.

THE SOLUTION

Bollards are a simple and cost effective means of preventing out of control cars from striking your business or patrons, and therefore reducing or eliminating the cost from resulting structural damage, claims of negligence, even injuries and wrongful death claims.

We believe that all site owners, business operators, public safety officers, architects, and loss prevention/insurance professionals should take to heart two essential points:

  • There are some simple methods to limit the cost of these measures and to make certain that products have been properly selected and properly installed.
  • Blockaides can guide you through the important steps of specifying the correct solution, and then ensuring that the project stays on track through selection of properly manufactured bollards, properly engineered footing solutions, and proper installation onsite to provide documented safety for your business, employees, and for the public.

WHY US & HOW WE CAN HELP

BLOCKAIDES CAN…

  • Blockaides can, recommend for any commercial or public site a cost effective solution that is engineered, proven to be effective, meets local or federal standards and codes, and is affordable.
  • Blockaides can, address issues for Loss Prevention professionals not expert in design, construction, or specification of tested bollards and barriers for their sites
  • Blockaides can, offer a turnkey solution for multi-site operations which need to roll out preventive measures quickly in response to legal liability claims, underwriting requirements from insurers, or changes in site conditions.
  • Blockaides can, setup a program that can offset the installation costs of such barriers using a media supported installation model.

[learn_more caption=”BASIC SITE QUESTIONS TO DETERMINE A SOLUTION”] Here are some basic site questions which help to determine a permanent and cost effective solution to your needs:

  • How fast are vehicles moving as they approach your site or entry? Are they coming straight on, or slowing down and turn in?
  • How big are these vehicles? Small vehicles weigh about 2500 lbs – larger SUV’s and pickups weigh twice that.
  • Are there only safety concerns, or are there also security concerns?
  • Is the owner of the business also the owner of the property? If not, who?
  • Is there a need to be able to remove the barrier from time to time?
  • Are their handicap ramps or other pedestrian restrictions along the parking area or sidewalk that have to be taken into account?
