Overview

Fixed and removable bollards are designed to restrict vehicle access while allowing pedestrians and bicycles to pass through freely. The XL-2200 Raptor Shallow Mount Fixed Bollard is the ideal solution for locations where anti-ram security is essential but where standard bollard foundations are not practical or permissible. While the Fixed Raptor has a formidable appearance to deter potential threats, it also provides modern architectural appeal.

Design Features

The Fixed Raptor is an evolution of Heald’s shallow mount retractable bollard by the same name. It offers a high level of security in a static configuration, and boasts an even smaller excavation depth of just 8” (200 mm). Like its retractable cousin, the Fixed Raptor was crash tested as a single unit, so it can be used as a stand-alone bollard or part of an array of multiple units to secure boundaries of any size.

The XL-2200 consists of a curve-shaped element that extends 39” (985 mm) high and 8” (200 mm) wide. The element is anchored below-grade with a structural frame designed to withstand a large impact. At 8” (200 mm) deep x 63” (1600 mm) wide x 63” (1600 mm) long, the foundation is very compact and requires only 3/4 of a cubic yard of concrete. Because the structural frame incorporates factory-provided rebar, there is no need for additional rebar mats to be supplied and built onsite. The Fixed Raptor is ideal for the following conditions:

  • Minimal excavation –where underground utilities, high water tables or other site conditions restrict excavation
  • Pedestrian and bicycle access – non-vehicular traffic can move through freely
  • High speed impacts – where the roadway layout allows vehicles to reach higher speeds
  • Minimal setbacks – where critical assets or equipment are located close to entrances (such as in urban areas) and a high level of security is required regardless of potential vehicle speed
  • Architectural appeal – contemporary style offers a modern twist on the age-old bollard design
  • Low impact security presence – since bollards are commonly used, they blend in well with the surrounding streetscape and do not raise awareness to high security measures

 

Applications

The Fixed Raptor is a great alternative to standard bollards. Because it provides a crash tested security rating with only 1 unit, it can potentially be used to block wider areas than standard fixed bollards, which typically are crash tested in groups of 3 units on 36” centers. The shallow mount foundation makes it a perfect choice where bollards are desired, but site conditions do not permit deep excavation. The Raptor is ideal for facilities located in urban settings such as courthouses, embassies, museums, banks, corporate offices, universities, mass transit facilities and parks.

Technical Data

The beauty of the Raptor Fixed Bollard goes far beyond its modern design and single-unit crash-tested rating. The unique shallow mount installation depth of 8” (200 mm) makes this one-of-a-kind bollard capable of being used where standard bollards simply cannot be installed.

It requires no pre-casting of the pit or additional rebar, ensuring the installation is simple and efficient. The Fixed Raptor can be installed in under an hour by an experienced crew — including excavation, setting the unit in place and infilling with approximately 3/4 of a cubic yard of concrete.
