Tente comprises two types of bollard made from cast iron and stainless steel. Fixed Tente for conventional use as a bollard, and mobile Tente which is able to resist the lateral impact of a vehicle by bending and then recovering its original vertical position. The second model is suitable for installation at the end of an aligned arrangement, where there is a greater probability of being hit by a vehicle.
Its name comes from the Spanish word tentetieso, in reference to a doll with a counterweight at the base and which, when tilted in any direction, always retains its balance.
The top and base are made from GG-20 grey cast iron with an oven-baked primer and polyester paint finish. The body is made from AISI 316L stainless steel pipe, painted or with a shiny AISI 316L polished finish. It has an internal calibrated galvanised steel threaded tensioner. Tente is installed by means of an intermediate base plate with two M16 x 140 mm screws fixed with resin to holes with a diameter of 40 mm.
