Why Do You Need Bollards?

When are bollards required?

Bollards are one of the only choices for pedestrian-friendly protection from vehicle attack. They are simple yet strong barriers which may be fixed, removable, or telescopic.  Different aesthetics may be applied through the use of various coatings and sleeves to allow the barriers to be part of the holistic design of the site.

What are bollards used for?

Simple applications such as kerbside bollards can provide safety to pedestrians from traffic.  Automatic bollards can safely operate in the public highway or outside building entrances to provide secure, low maintenance access control which can be integrated with stand alone, local network or large scale traffic or building management systems.

How strong are bollards?

Bollards are extremely safe for pedestrians and still provide access for cyclists but are a much needed, strong vehicle deterrent.  At the highest design level, high-security bollards are capable of stopping cars and trucks at high speed to maintain a secure perimeter.  For areas with very high pedestrian flow, bollards provide the best way to provide security with pedestrian permeability making them the first choice for entrance at Airports, Stadiums, Skyscraper buildings and commercial areas to name just a few.
