A driver’s lucky escape

A driver’s lucky escape

With lack of concentration, a commuter accidentally pushed down the accelerator which had his car reversing into a Glen Waverley petrol bowser. Flames erupted and thick, toxic smoke egressed from the car. The quick acting attendant saved the man from the massive fireball. “It was my mistake. I was just trying to reverse the car,” a visibly shaken Mr Ramakrishnan told 7 News. Firefighters arrived almost immediately, trying to stop the flames, but the car and the petrol bowser were already damaged. They believe a spark from the car, most likely   ...read more

Never again ram-raids at Blackburn North

Never again ram-raids at Blackburn North

Only a few months ago, a man peered into a shop in Blackburn North. Soon after, he rammed his four-wheel drive into it and left without trouble. The store front was completely unprotected and unprepared for the attack. But not anymore. The event has made Blackburn North take steps to increase security around the building. By installing 168mm diameter bollards, an NJM Group propriety product, in front of the entrance, they have made sure ram-raids are now a thing of the past. The sub surface mounted, concrete backfilled bollards prevent unauthorised vehicles from forcing t  ...read more

Princes Bridge protected with anti-terror barricades

Temporary water-filled barricades have popped up along the heavily populated Princes Bridge in Melbourne over the past week.

These concrete blocks are not sturdy or durable enough to w  ...read more

Ram raid attack… just for a snack

Ram raid attack… just for a snack

The extent to which criminals go to just to satisfy their desires is becoming very damaging to the overall fabric of society. In recent times, the level of violent ram-raiding criminals have significantly increased. This increase is partly due to the intensity of rising street gangs based in the outer suburbs of Melbourne. In the early morning hours on the 21st of July, an unattended petrol station in Rowville was targeted. The criminals had successfully ram-raided the front entrance and consequentially stole the goods they had come for. The ram-raiding thieves   ...read more

Wheelers Hill calls for more security after ram-raid spree

Car mounts busy footpath at Boston Airport

It can happen to anyone, a momentary lapse in concentration and you accidently step on the accelerator instead of the brake. This was the case for a Boston Taxi driver who’s out of control vehicle left ten people in hospital with injuries of varying severity. The driver jumped the kerb at Boston Airport and struck fellow taxi drivers awaiting their next customers. If the walkway was protected with bollards, it would have been a very different story. Instead of being in hospital, those ten injured cabbies would just have had a story to tell their families whe  ...read more

Disrupting the bollard industry with the Spalding Bollard

Disrupting the bollard industry with the Spalding Bollard

The word ‘disrupt’ has been heard in just about every second sentence in tech marketing in recent years, and while it is a little gimmicky, it does have a powerful meaning. To disrupt is to not just walk the same path as everyone else but to venture out and challenge the status quo. And we believe something as ‘mundane’ as the bollard industry can be ‘disrupted’ with forward thinking design. When most people think bollards, they think a boring metal pole which sticks out of the ground, which for the most part is ok because it is doin  ...read more

Childcare explosion a near miss!

In the early hours of Monday morning a wild police car chase broke out in the Melbourne West suburb of Tarneit. In the chaos that ensued the driver lost control of his vehicle which careered into a local childcare centre. The car exploded and burst into flames leaving Kool Kidz childcare centre a skeleton of what it was before. The disturbing fact is if the accident occurred a few hours later, the centre would have been filled with around 30 children and staff.
