Bollards and barriers

The increase of vehicles in urban environments has increased the need for effective barriers to provide safe pedestrian movement.  Bollards, gates, and other physical barriers have become an integral part of all new developments. Bollards and barriers provide:

  • Pedestrian delineation and separation
  • Perimeter security
  • Vehicle access control
  • Ram raid protection
  • Hostile vehicle mitigation

ARA Security can advise architects and specifiers on products with the right impact resistance, while achieving aesthetically pleasing outcomes. Our extensive experience in providing physical protection to the country’s most iconic landmarks and government buildings gives us the knowledge to advise and customise bollards and barriers to meet your architectural design needs and blend into the environment that they protect.

Boom gates

ARA Security provides the largest and most comprehensive range of boom gates across Australia, catering for simple vehicle access control in a public car park to the most secure installations of heavy industrial sites and government installations. Our boom gates can provide:

  • Manual and automatic models
  • 100% duty cycle – for continuous operation
  • A range of options and accessories
  • Solutions for most car parks and low to medium vehicle access applications.
  • Solutions for commercial and industrial areas

Using the combination of Leda’s proven and reliable electric motors and lever mechanisms, ARA Security can provide options for short opening and closing times without the boom arm bouncing in the end position. The lever arm system locks the boom at both end positions without the need for a receiving post.

Card reader posts and bollards

ARA Security can provide a diverse range of card reader bollards that are compatible with almost all access control systems. Card reader posts and bollards are available in:

  • Steel and stainless steel
  • Single and dual height (suited to cars and trucks)
  • CCTV and intercom compatible designs
  • Wall mounted and removable designs
  • Custom designs to suit any application


Fences form one of the most essential components of perimeter security. ARA Security can design, manufacture, install, service and integrate fencing into any security solution.

Pedestrian gates

Pedestrian gates can be supplied as stand-alone units or integrated with vehicular gates, turnstiles or fencing with a range of locking options. Pedestrian swing gates are available in 1.8m, 2.1m or 2.4m heights, with an opening of 1 metre. The gates are available in a range of different finishes with a number of infill options.

Road blocker (HVM) Hostile Vehicle Mitigation

Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) is a primary consideration for design engineers and consultants when planning new projects or upgrading existing sites. Vehicle barriers and road blockers provide medium to high levels of security against vehicle-borne impact attacks without compromising on pedestrian safety.

ARA Security’s vehicle barriers and road blockers offer a variety of security and impact protection solutions, ranging from low to very high security and impact resistance. Our engineers have developed a range of popular barriers and tailored designs can also be manufactured.

Vehicle barriers and road blockers may be installed:

  • as single independent units, in tandem or in a combination with other products such as gates to achieve a sluice or channel arrangement forming a vehicle checkpoint.
  • above ground, surface mounted, shallow mounted or conventional deep concrete footings.
  • painted in highly visible yellow with red warning colours. Custom colours and designs are available to suit your application.

Tyre spikes

Tyre spikes provide security protection for restricted areas deterring unauthorised entry or exit of motor vehicles. Tyre spikes work by damaging the vehicles tyres and immobilising the vehicle. Tyre spikes are constructed in heavy gauge mild steel, fully welded and hot-dipped galvanised and available in both manual and automatic models.

Tyre spikes can be used as part of a combined perimeter security solution incorporating barriers forming a vehicle checkpoint or utilised as part of a vehicle interlocking system.
