And that begins our challenge: Design challenges arose due to the expansive underground infrastructure just feet below Times Square, including the NYC Subway system and underground utility lines.
Shallow-mount removable bollards required customization since the base could not be embedded to standard depth. The bollards were to be installed between 42nd and 47th Streets, and at the cross-streets of 7th Avenue and Broadway.
The bollards were to be installed between 42nd and 47th Streets and at the cross streets of 7th Avenue and Broadway. Calpipe Csa case study Bollard also collaborated with the international architecture firm Snohetta, the security consultants at LiRo Group, and Tully Construction to complete the custom project.
Due to the high traffic and heavy pedestrian presence in Times Square, there were many safety and security requirements that had to be met during the design and manufacturing stage of the project.
The bollards had to be removable and lockable so that authorized vehicles could access the protected area, without compromising the security of the system.
Calpipe Security Bollard provided over stainless steel removable bollards. These Times Square Alliance approved bollards are installed in custom engineered locking embedment sleeves.
The bollards and embedment sleeves were manufactured from Type stainless steel to withstand the harsh environments of New York streets. Additionally, the embedment sleeve lids were supplied with a custom finish that improves traction and reduces the dangers to pedestrians from slipping in wet or icy weather.
The bollards were also equipped with lifting rings to reduce the effort required when installing or removing the bollards. Since maintenance was a concern for NYC officials, an architectural finish was added to the bollards, requiring nothing more than simple wipe-downs with stainless steel cleaner in order to remove dirt and preserve the aesthetics.
In consideration of the large crowds and other inherent factors at a location like Times Square, the bollards were designed to be tamper-resistant.
Times Square accommodates millions of people per month, exposing the bollards to potential risks inherent with public interaction. Calpipe Security Bollard made sure the design and finishing details were such that no sharp edges existed that could injure pedestrians.
Additionally, all moving components of the removable bollards were flush and sealed, eliminating the possibility of litter, such as gum and cigarette butts, from entering into embedment areas. Each bollard met the following specification requirements: Bollards feature a tamper-resistant design to prevent theft and vandalism.
The bollards and embedment sleeves are fabricated from Type stainless steel. The bollards were also equipped with lifting rings to assist with removing the bollard.
The only maintenance required for the stainless steel bollards is occasional wiping down with stainless steel cleaner in order to remove dirt and prevent stains.
Conclusion Once all design criteria were established, the first articles were manufactured, installed, and tested. The bollards are fully operable and currently installed throughout Times Square, providing safety and security to as many aspedestrians each and every day.CSA Group provides product certification and product testing services to Canada, the U.S, Europe, and worldwide.
