M50 Bollard Protecting The Sphere in Las Vegas

Protecting Iconic Spaces: Barrier1's Hercules M50 Bollards at the MSG Sphere

In the realm of architectural marvels, few structures captivate the imagination like the MSG Sphere in Las Vegas. Towering above the skyline, it stands not only as a testament to human ingenuity but also as a symbol of innovation and grandeur. Yet, with great stature comes great responsibility, particularly in terms of security. When tasked with safeguarding such an iconic space, Sloan Security Group, a renowned design-build firm, turned to Barrier1’s Hercules M50 Bollards to fortify the perimeter with unrivaled protection.  

Engineering Excellence: Barrier1’s Hercules M50 Bollards 

Engineered to withstand significant force, our Hercules M50 Bollards are crash-rated and certified to stop a 15,000-pound vehicle traveling at 50 mph. Crafted specifically for high-security environments such as government facilities, airports, stadiums, and military installations, these deep-mount, set and pour bollards offer impenetrable protection against vehicular threats. Additionally, Barrier1 offers Hercules M30 Bollards, capable of stopping a 15,000-pound vehicle traveling at 30 mph, providing versatile security solutions tailored to varying needs.    

What sets Barrier1’s Hercules bollards apart is their unique installation process—no rebar is required, and each bollard is a standalone unit. This feature allows for seamless installation on roadways and perimeters with turns and curves, ensuring comprehensive security without compromising aesthetics or functionality. 

Fortifying the MSG Sphere: A Collaborative Endeavor 

Managed by Sloan Security Group, the installation of 85 Hercules M50 Bollards at the MSG Sphere was a testament to strategic collaboration and innovative security solutions. Despite initial specifications favoring another manufacturer, Sloan championed Barrier1’s superior product, emphasizing its adaptability to any turning radius—a crucial advantage given the intricate layout of the site. 

Amber Dean, Project Manager at Sloan Security Group, highlighted the ease of coordination between Sloan and Barrier1 in fortifying the perimeter of the MSG Sphere. With meticulous planning and execution, Sloan’s decision to deploy Barrier1’s bollards underscored their confidence in the product’s ability to meet the project’s security standards.

The streamlined installation process of Barrier1’s bollards facilitated swift project completion, aligning flawlessly with the project’s demanding timeline and budget.
