We will ensure the safety of more than 35 million passengers and 1,8 million tons of cargo annually by transferring the experience we gained in the past to this project. As can be seen from the numbers, a very challenging task awaits us. However, we are very confident in our technology and products.

Stopped the 7,5 ton truck
Collision Test Certified High Security Bollard Barrier is a reinforced barrier system that has been specially designed to prevent the passage of unauthorized and unauthorized vehicles with high security measures, and its resistance to impact has been proven by tests. The barrier stopped the truck after a 7.5-ton truck crashed at a speed of 80 km/h in the crash test conducted at the Aisico test center in Italy and continued to operate without any problems afterwards. The barriers, which received the IWA 14-1:2013 / PAS68 test report after the test, can also be produced in different sizes in line with the project and need.
