1 ORIENTATION
1.1 Overview
The model B3X Hydraulic Bollard system is designed to act as a vehicular deterrent for
perimeter security and traffic control purposes. Engineered for simple installation, fast
service and easy relocation, the Model B3X is constructed of high strength steel
cylindrical units guided by an offset flange assembly with precision machined antifriction surfaces. The Model B3X is offered in a variety of drive solutions: Automatic
(HPU Driven), Semi-automatic (Manual) and fixed are the standard drive options
available.
The bollard system has been tested to Department of State specifications STD 02.01.
The bollard system is designed to stop a 15,000-pound vehicle traveling at 40 mph.

Cylinder Weldment Assembly
The main structural element of the B3X Bollard is the cylinder. This 10 inch schedule 80
steel cylinder raises and lowers to provide the obstruction during impact. When raised,
the tube protrudes 30-36 inches of grade (depending on the model).
CAUTION: This barrier is made of heavy steel components.
Ensure all personnel are cleared of area during operation.
1.1.2
Tube Cover Plate
The cover plate seals the top of the cylinder to provide a functional and aesthetic bollard.
This cover plate is used to access the hydraulic cylinder and other maintenance items.
1.1.3
Gas Shock
The gas shock provides a spring counter balance to the bollard cylinder to assist in raising
the bollard.
1.1.4
Housing Weldment
The housing provides the necessary structure to hold the bollard cylinder and position it
when raising and lowering.
1.1.5
Collision Pins
The collision pins are used as the elements to hold the bollard cylinder into the housing
during impact. These pins are easily removed to allow the entire bollard cylinder to be
removed for maintenance and inspection.
1.1.6
Cover Plate
The access cover allows maintenance access to the system without physically removing
the structure. Access to hydraulic cylinder, fittings, hoses and collision pins can be made
by removal of this cover.
CAUTION: Hydraulic cylinder and hoses are under extreme
pressure. Use caution when working on barrier with access
cover removed.
1.1.7
Guide Strip
The acetyl (Delrin) guide strips ensure the bollard cylinder can move freely with
minimum maintenance required.

Options
The B3X Bollard System is available with a broad array of options and field installed
kits. Consult your ordering documentation to determine whether your system has the
optional equipment.
 Concrete Heater Kit. This optional kit includes the necessary components to
add field installed heat trace cables around the support frame prior to
installation. This is highly recommended for areas where ice or snow may
inhibit the performance of the barrier.
2 INSTALLATION
2.1 Introduction
This section of the manual describes the procedure to set-up and configures the B3X
Bollard barrier for first-time operation. The product ships from the factory tested and
ready for deployment following these steps. Normally bollard arrays or lanes consist of
groupings of 3 bollards that operate in unison. Normal spacing is 48 inches center to
center.
CAUTION: Heavy components and pinch points are present
in this product. Use extreme care when servicing this unit.
2.2 Environmental Conditions
The B3X bollard is engineered to work in many different applications globally. As with
any movable barrier, there are environmental conditions that should be met to keep the
bollard system working optimally.
Do not use the bollard if:
 The bollard is flooded or underwater.
 The bollard is covered by excessive snow, sand or dirt.
2.3 Site Preparation
The Bollard’s performance can be influenced by the surrounding soil conditions and
grade. It is expected that the minimum soil compression force is 1600 PSF in and around
the installation area. Please consult with B&B ARMR Technical Support if there are
questions in regards to the installation site conditions.
The following lists some recommendations related to site choice and preparation:
1. Soil compressive strength under barrier shall be a minimum of 1600 PSF.
Compact and add gravel where necessary to ensure solid soil base. Consult B&B
ARMR Technical Support if soil compressive strength does not meet this
minimum requirement.

2. Install barrier in area that has adequate drainage. Barrier’s operational
performance is affected when there is inadequate drainage.
3. The barrier operates best when installed on a level surface. Level site side to side
and front to back prior to barrier installation.
4. Excavate install site to accommodate a minimum concrete pad dimension shown
to match the number of barriers you have purchased. If site excavation can not be
completed per these minimum dimensions, please contact B&B ARMR Technical
Support for a custom solution to meet the site requirements.
5. Installation of the lost casing is typically done prior to the installation of the
bollard assembly.

2.4 Positioning
1. Position the lost casings to ensure top surfaces are level with finished site grade.
A common technique to ensure casings are installed correctly includes using a
wooden frame or timber to suspend the casings as the concrete is added. It is
critical to the installation of the barrier that the lost casing is not twisted and does
not get dimensionally changed during the install process.
* Additional wood support may be desired internal to the lost casing to
keep from twisting or bowing and changing the dimensions during
concrete pour.
Figure 3 Lost Casing Installation
2.5 Rebar and Conduit Installation
1. Install drain conduits to enable positive flow away from barrier. Drain conduit
holes are provided at the bottom of the lost casing. The drain conduit hole is
2.375” diameter.

Figure 4 Lost Casing
2. Set #4 rebar in 12” center cross patterns in excavation area. Slide rebar around
lost casing to ensure frame is rigidly attached to concrete pad. There is no need to
weld the rebar to the frame.
3. If optional heater kit has been purchased, install heater core cable per kit
instructions at this time.
2.6 Concrete
1. Concrete shall be rated at 3000psi or higher.
2. Assure concrete does not flow into casing area.
3. Finish concrete level to less than .125” of top surface of casing. The bollard after
install will be slightly higher.
4. Vibrate concrete to assure all air bubbles and voids are removed under and around
barrier.
CAUTION: Heavy components and pinch points are present
in this product. Use extreme care due to the Bollard raising
when pressure is applied and air has escaped.
2.7 Optional Pad Heater or Heater Strip
If so equipped, connect optional pad heater per heater kit instructions.
2.8 Final Pre-operation Checklist
Before operating the B3X Bollard System, go through the checklist below and verify that
each of these steps has been completed.

3 OPERATION
3.1 Introduction
The Semi-automatic bollard has a pressurized gas shock located where the hydraulic
cylinder is located on the automatic version. The gas shock is engineered to provide a
load balanced system that can be pulled up and pushed down manually.
3.2 Control
The semi-automatic system operates by using the supplied key to unlock the bollard
when it is in the down position. This frees the bollard to be raised and locked into place.
Ensure the lock is fully engaged (key 90 degrees) when bollard is left in the fully up or
down position.
