USES FOR BOLLARDS
Our bollard installations are mainly used for controlling and restricting flow of traffic through prohibited areas. They enable planners to keep vehicles out of certain areas but unlike fences, allow permitted traffic like cycles and pedestrians to pass through.
They represent a safety feature that can be of enormous benefit in village, town and even city centres. But at the same time they avoid cluttering up an area or detracting from its visual impact. Bollards enclose a space and define a boundary without it appearing to be enclosed. Typical examples for their use include:
- Defining pedestrian areas in town centres
- Creating cycling lanes
- Preventing vehicular approach to sensitive buildings
- Preventing vehicular access to parks, commons and other open spaces
INSTALLATION OF BOLLARD POSTS
Generally we would install bollards in a secure concrete foundation. Exceptions might be for areas where this is not possible due to the presence of sewers, underground cables and gas pipes or similar. In these cases we adapt our methods to utilise surface mounted bolting systems.
CONSTRUCTION OF BOLLARDS
Bollards are normally constructed from robust materials. In addition to standard concrete, we use metals such as steel and stainless steel. We can paint them to any colour on the RAL colour scale prior to installation. Our bollards are designed to be long-lasting and resistant to all climates.
At this point it is also worth noting that we can also supply softer more flexible bollards made from eco-friendly recycled plastic or rubber.
- Metal. There are distinct advantages to using metal. Folding mechanisms and access control features are much easier to incorporate. Folding bollards with a simple padlock are often used for reserved parking spaces or as a driveway security post.
- Retracting Bollards. In cases where perimeter security is a factor, access control bollards that retract into the ground can be linked to automated access control systems like vehicle recognition or fob press.
- Recycled plastic and rubber bollards are great for defining a boundary but without the potential for seriously damaging anything that may inadvertently run into one.
- Concrete barriers are very much a fit and forget feature. They require little or no ongoing maintenance and represent the ideal and financially astute choice when permanence is a priority
- Timber Bollards are an eco-friendly and aesthetically pleasing choice. They often feature in publicly accessible forestry locations, parks and open spaces and large estates that are open to the public
