Case Study: Palm Jumeirah Boardwalk, Dubai

Case Study: Palm Jumeirah Boardwalk, Dubai
ATG bollards at Palm Jumeirah Boardwalk, Dubai

The Client

The Palm Jumeirah is an impressive manmade archipelago in Dubai, created using land reclamation and extending into the Persian Gulf. The tree-shaped island is known for its five-star hotels, luxury apartment towers and upmarket global restaurants.

The Palm Jumeirah Boardwalk is an 11-kilometre coastal path built along the breakwater. The boardwalk features beautiful views of the Arabian Gulf as well as Dubai’s iconic skyline and sits at the heart of one of Dubai’s most desirable neighbourhoods, running past the iconic Atlantis Hotel and other prime attractions.

It is busy at all hours, with refreshments, souvenir concessions and food vendors selling local cuisine throughout the day. Future development includes new retail promenades and piers which will stretch over 100 meters out to sea for spectacular views.

 

The Challenge

The client had identified the boardwalk as vulnerable due to it being a crowded space and being located directly next to one of the archipelago’s main roads. A crash-rated solution was required to keep pedestrian traffic safe from vehicles.

 

The Objective

Given the high-profile nature of the resort, its hotels and their international VIP clientele, any security bollards installed would need to be resistant to both accidental crashes and higher-speed vehicle-as-a-weapon attacks.

While the solution had to provide a high level of protection, it also had to fit in with its surroundings, and deliver a modern, attractive aesthetic to match the prestigious location.
