After recently winning the regional Design X50 award, this iF Design Award shows at a global level how the new FLEX IMPACT® column protectors manufactured by Boplan excel with their looks and effectiveness. In a wide range of work environments worldwide a major amount of damage is caused globally by collisions. BOPLAN column protectors provide ideal protection for column, pillars and shafts. With FLEX IMPACT® column protection, you can not only prevent costly damage to your buildings and vehicles, but the driver is also better protected against injuries due to the unique properties of FLEX IMPACT®. Thanks to their absorbing power they eliminate almost all risk of damage and by doing so safeguard the structural integrity of your columns. Boplan offers you protection to suit columns of every size. Thanks to a wide range of diameters for the column protectors, the right protection can be fitted in every working environment.

For 65 years the iF DESIGN AWARD has been a trademark for excellent designs worldwide.

All winners, including BOPLAN, were celebrated during the official ceremony, the iF design award night, on 9 March 2018. The breathtaking architecture of BMW Welt in Munich was also a unique setting for this event. Boplan Product Manager Tom Devoldere, together with a delegation from the design office PiliPili from Kortrijk, were, therefore, very proud to receive the award.
