Security bollards protect Switzerland’s largest train station

It’s no coincidence that Zurich’s main train station is the largest in Switzerland: around 461,000 people use or pass through its halls every day. To better protect people from vehicular attacks, Consel recently installed bollards with impact loads, so-called safety bollards, on behalf of the Swiss Federal Railways SBB. These protect the two roadside entrances to the cross hall.

The challenges

  • Access should be granted if necessary
  • Low installation depth – retractable bollards not feasible
  • Barrier elements must not restrict the flow of people

The solution: removable safety bollards

  • a sophisticated concept – specially developed for SBB by Consel
  • reinforced flat foundations with a depth of 250mm for the installation of the bollards
  • interconnected foundations for optimal force absorption
  • removable bollards with special steel for highest impact load

The solution is convincing not only technically, but also from an architectural point of view. This is because the high-security bollards equipped with stainless steel jackets blend in perfectly with the modern surroundings. They convey security without appearing martial.
