A 2012 Message from the President of RSA Protective TechnologiesThe Federal Government and New York City reach out to RSA for a unique Anti-Ram Solution because “Jersey Barriers don’t work”
Based on its field crash testing, the Federal Government and New York City recognized that Jersey Barriers (K-rails) and concrete or steel surface mounted planters do not provide even the minimum amount of anti-ram protection. They failed all their K4 tests. In their search for rapid deployable, highest rated K12 perimeter protection (the same used in front of all U.S. Embassies and Consulates worldwide) these two groups turned to RSA for a solution. RSA is pleased to announce that we have designed, analyzed, successfully crash tested, patented, fabricated and supplied to the U.S. Department of State the RSA/K&C K12 Surface Mount Bollard System.
- The Department of Homeland security requests a K12 Surface Mount Bollard product
- The Department of State purchases the first major sets of the product
- The Federal Government Funds the ASTM crash test with a Certified M50, P1 result
- The United States Patent and Trademark Office awards RSA the world’s first Surface Mount Bollards patent.
RSA is pleased to announce its latest breakthrough security product – Surface Mounted Perimeter Security Bollards requiring zero excavation, adhesives or ground anchors – while providing top level counter-terrorist protection. This world’s first just earned the coveted ASTM M50-P1 (DOS K12) certified rating in a US Government sponsored crash test by stopping a 15,000 lbs. vehicle traveling 50 MPH in less than 1 meter!

RSA Shallow Mount Bollards
Complete engineered bollard layout included in bollard pricing. No field welding or custom transition coupling pieces required. Why risk your project on unspecified groupings of “commodity” straight bollards with expensive site welding requiring weld inspection for each bollard? The RSA way works with sophisticated installation shop drawings that must be client signed off even before steel production.
Most sites include manholes, electrical vaults, variations in elevations, corners, etc. With RSA’s customized turnkey solutions, also signed off by our Engineers of Record every installation we undertake is guaranteed to be perfectly seated.
Also important to note is that although the DOS crash test only requires a 90 degree strike one cannot count on this in the field. A perimeter attack can come at any angle. Therefore calculated, structural horizontal members must be included in any design to thwart these events against your building. RSA is the only company in the world that custom designs each bollard pad with these issues in mind. Download our PDF brochures above and see the process for yourself.
All RSA/K&C shallow mount bollards have been field crash tested against a single bollard and have a 4.0’ clear opening between bollards.
