Automated Rising Bollards

Can we remind Automated Rising Bollard Installers of the safety requirement for in movement warning lights, to rising bollard installation that are installed in roadways.

It is increasingly difficult for the road users to determine the position of these types of security devises below the vehicle bonnet height without such visual aids when entering the entrapment area of such installed  equipment.

They can be ‘Orange flashing’ to warn of impending operation of the installed device, or can be Red danger Green to go traffic light.

It is also advisable to incorporate safety beam where these installations may pose a hazard to pedestrian safety.
