Shallow mount bollards are designed to combat the problematic fitting of traditional bollards which require deep foundations. Excavation and trenching can be expensive and time consuming, and below grade, pipes and utilities may prohibit installation. All shallow mount bollards are created to be installed at or near the surface, when compared to other bollards of their type or class. Impact protective bollards are typically installed deep into the substrate by three or more feet, with their length providing their crash tolerance. Shallow mount may be installed on a plate or ‘biscuit’ that’s then linked to other bollards. Shallow mounts require just a fraction of the depth you would normally need, with depth requirements ranging from two feet to two inches!

Several applications require shielding from radiation where lead is not a feasible material. Tungsten heavy alloy provides an alternative to lead that is strong and highly customizable into precision components. With an approximately 1.7 times greater density than lead, tungsten guarantees radiation exposure is kept to a minimum. Tungsten’s higher density means the material provides better gamma ray absorption and radiation shielding. Not only is tungsten thicker than lead, but it is also easily mechanically processed/machined and has high ductility and strength. Compared to lead, tungsten is eco-friendly due to its non-toxic properties, making it a more feasible option for use in medical environments. Further, tungsten is also preferred in industrial settings requiring radiation shielding since it uses less material than lead and provides the same absorption level.
