Bicycle Superstore prevents ram-raids with simple solution

Bicycle Superstore prevents ram-raids with simple solution

A Bicycle Superstore in Highpoint Shopping Center in Maribyrnong has decided to install bollards in front of their facade to protect it against ram-raids. Ram-raids is a phenomenon where vehicles are used as a tool to ram through entrances to steal goods. It has unfortunately become more and more common. One of the most recent incidents happened only a few months ago when two thieves used a ute to smash the entrance of a Koo Wee Rup liquor store in Melbourne’s southeast to steal cigarette lighters and cash. In July, two people ram-raided a petrol station in Rowville,  ...read more

SECURITY FOR THE SUNSHINE STATE

Last week, it was announced that the Palaszczuk Government has approved a package of $98.3 million to counter terrorism throughout Queensland. This package is looking to strengthen the security at nine stadiums in Queensland, recruit officers and establish counter-terrorism programs. Here at Australian Bollards, we agree the additional protection in Queensland is a step in the right direction. We also believe bollards is another useful tool in any security plan. Our VBIED bollards are for example the perfect choice in public spaces, as they are heavy  ...read more

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

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

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

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
