Elegant Protection in 3 Sizes: Our Helio Security Bollard Family Expands

Helio M40/K8 and M50/K12 Security Bollards, Series 1200, bring the F+S security bollard program to a whole new level. Simply elegant in stainless steel, Series 1200 bollards offer beautiful new options for projects requiring Helio’s M40/K8 and M50/K12 impact ratings.

Helio M40/K8 & M50/K12 Security Bollards, Series 1200, are 11.5" in diameter and have embedded security cores. Stainless steel columns and head caps are standard with a Satin finish though powdercoat colors are an option as well.

Helio M40/K8 & M50/K12 Security Bollards are available in illuminated and non-illuminated designs. Illuminated bollards feature a frosted acrylic lens, 180˚ or 360˚ light distribution, and Cree® LEDs in 3000K warm white and 4000K neutral white. Illuminated bollards provide downward-facing light to help minimize light pollution and glare.

Non-illuminated variations are a natural companion to their brighter counterparts.

Helio M40/K8 and M50/K12 Security Bollards, Series 1200 incorporate pre-engineered and fully-tested embedded security cores. Two security core options achieve two different security ratings: M40/K8 or M50/K12.

  • The M40-P1/K8 rating indicates that the bollards are successful in stopping a 15,000 lb. vehicle traveling at a minimum test velocity of 40 mph in less than 3.3 feet (1 meter)
  • The M50-P1/K12 rating indicates that the bollards are successful in stopping a 15,000 lb. vehicle traveling at a minimum test velocity of 50 mph in less than 3.3 feet (1 meter)

Typical applications requiring these security ratings include areas that may allow vehicles to pick up speed: high-value properties and large gathering areas, for example, as well as federal buildings in the case of the M50/K12. You can learn more about our testing criteria and procedures on all of our Helio Family product pages.

The Helio family also includes Helio M30/K4 Security Bollards, Series 900, that are 9.25" in diameter and available in illuminated and non-illuminated designs; and Helio Bollards, Series 600, that are 6" in diameter and can be specified in illuminated, non-illuminated and security core variations.

All Helio Bollards are 40" high, making it easy to carry a unified look across a project. Series 1200, 900 and 600 bollards without security cores, with or without illumination, are also available.

As functional as they are beautiful, Helio Security Bollards are designed to protect as intended across a wide range of security scenarios, and look good while doing it.

In addition, site integration is easy: Helio’s minimalist form can stand out or blend into a wide array of spaces, and its elegant profile has equal appeal in daylight and nighttime conditions.

Whether used in a streetscape, park, or surrounding a building exterior, Helio’s clean aesthetics are an attractive match for today’s increasingly security-conscious settings.
