Technology Partners

Our commitment to refreshingly different solutions for outdoor spaces extends to products which incorporate advanced technology.

ABES Public Design’s extraordinary, patented 3P Technology Bollards are a safe, practical and low maintenance solution for shared pedestrian and vehicle zones. The innovative (yet stylish) bollards connect via ‘junction piece’ with a pre-determined breaking point. If damaged, the bollard and foundation stay intact, and only the junction piece has to be replaced.
