Australian Bollards offers cellular designed Energy Absorbing Pole/Tree Buffers that are installed on fixed hazardous objects adjacent to busy roadways to absorb the impact of an out-of-control vehicle that may collide with the object.

Used to protect vehicle occupants in the event of a collision with fixed roadside objects such as trees, light poles, concrete walls, bridge rails and power poles, the Energy Absorbing Pole/Tree Buffers feature a singular cell round tube that is strategically slotted for controlled crumpling and energy absorption. The size and shape of the buffers are customised to specific roadside hazards (e.g. trees, poles, etc) and the posted speed limit for the adjacent road.

The pole buffer safely halts an errant vehicle with its energy absorbing cells, this means the vehicle safely decelerates, reducing the potential of injuries that may occur for the occupants.

Australian Bollards AB-EAB Energy Absorbing Bollard will be placed within the AB-EAB-PB with sand, featuring a buffer on top. This performs as a protective barrier delivering an additional layer of security which allows for impacts from collisions to be absorbed safely.

The Energy Absorbing Pole/Tree Buffer is classified as a non re-directive crash attenuator tested under AS/NZS 3845:1999 and can withstand a 1600kg vehicle impact at 60km/h. This remarkable road safety solution has the potential to significantly reduce serious injuries & deaths and has undergone extensive testing to ensure their performance exceeds expectations and meets Australian Standards.


The Tree/Pole Buffer is:

  • Strategically slotted for controlled crumpling and energy absorption.
  • Easily adaptable to different speeds of impact.
  • Easily installed and requires zero maintenance.

Designed to prevent out-of-control vehicles damaging key site infrastructure, the performance of the Energy Absorbing Pole/Tree Buffer is critically dependent on installing the product correctly.

This innovative solution is:
