Terra Static Jupiter Bollards & Terra Ultimate 180 Swing Barrier
The permanent tribute to the UAE’s Founding Father, Sheikh Zayed, has been named 'The Founder’s Memorial' by Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi. This marks the 100-year anniversary of Sheikh Zayed’s birth, the memorial will house rarely-seen footage, personal stories and artefacts related to the Founding Father.
Located at the intersection of first and second street along Abu Dhabi’s Corniche and spanning 3.3 hectares, The Founder’s Memorial landscaped area features indigenous plants and shrubbery from the UAE and the Arabian Peninsula, in keeping with Shaikh Zayed’s commitment to nurturing local flora and fauna. The space also features an elevated walkway with stunning views of the memorial’s central artwork, and beyond to the Abu Dhabi skyline.
The area is protected by Frontier Pitts' HVM PAS68 Terra Static Jupiter Bollards which have been successfully impact tested stopping 7.5t at 50mph.
Ali Al-Sohaini, Frontier Pitts Export Manager says: “We are very proud to have provided HVM Bollards on such a prestige and important project. The lead time on the project was extremely tight so the bollards were flown directly to site from our UK Manufacturing HQ. Nothing but the best for the Sheikh!”
Frontier Pitts HVM IWA14 Terra Ultimate 180 Swing Barrier completed the installation. This manually operated barrier has been successfully impact tested to stop 7.2t at 50mph.
