is a unique way to establish the integrity of the bollard and its foundation. And whether it still meets the design requirements of the structure. The methodology that was developed in-house is based on the transmission of vibration and sound through the structure allowing us to pinpoint any errors.
SMART * SIMPLE * SAFE
When scanning a bollard we place a number of sensors on the surface of the structure above the ground. A vibration is initiated by tapping on the bollard in various directions and with various forces. Experiments have proven that the bollard and around 1 m
is covered by the vibration. The returned vibrations will be recorded and analysed by a sophisticated computer program. This will result in a number of graphs. The results of the test and the visual inspection form the basis for clear and concise reporting including a risk analysis.
