Talos M50

Automatic bollard for perimeter security

Automatic oil-hydraulic system, 230 Vac


Diameter 275
Height 1000
Thickness 20


Intended for traffic control and protection of those sensitive areas (embassies, military bases, government palaces, banks, etc.), where a high level of perimeter security is needed against terrorist attacks. Designed and tested to safely withstand, in a single bollard configuration, a vehicle of 7,5 t at a speed of 80 km/h and stay intact and fully operative.  EFO (Emergency Fast Operation) version also available for quick rising in an emergency.


Hydraulic locking device in standing position (standard) and emergency manual lowering by a release spanner supplied with the equipment. Drive unit with two lobe pumps. Burglar-proof cover plate preventing the release system from being accessed and thus the bollard from being lowered.


Scratch-proof cataphoresis treated and polyester powder coated steel rising cylinder. Available also with an AISI 304 stainless steel cover sleeve, thickness 12/10. Breakout resistance: 2.000.000 J.
Connector and junction box IP 66 for cabling. Hall effect limit switch sensors, cylinder head with rubber edge and incorporated LED lights.


A vast range of command and safety accessories allow for reliable and precise control of the installations. Beeper to signal the movements. Heating device for installations in very low temperature conditions -40 °C, where snow and ice are frequent. The electronic control unit can be set so that it can manage several bollards at a time.
