Wooden bollards provide a rustic, high-strength and environmentally friendly access control and traffic control method with all of our hardwood timber FSC certified and sourced from sustainable forestry schemes. Our timber bollards are manufactured from European Oak which is a high strength material known for its durability and tendency not to warp or crack. This makes it the ideal material for a bollard and once installed the wooden posts tend to look better with age (just like you).

Timber bollards can be stained in several colours to suit the surroundings or left untouched to show off their natural beauty. Wooden bollards are available with a range of head types including a flat top, a chamfer top, a sloped top, or a pyramid top. Round timber bollards can be finished with a dome top.
Wooden bollards have been used for traffic management and perimeter protection for centuries, with the term bollard thought to have originated from ‘bole’ which means tree trunk, and they continue to be an extremely popular traffic control method to this day. Hardwood timber bollards are a naturally strong and durable product that are used to control traffic access (in town and city centres), secure perimeters (such as car parks and forecourts) and protect buildings (such as shopping centres & storefronts).
Timber bollards provide a low-maintenance, and versatile security solution which is available in both static and removable option. The removable version can be lifted out from the ground sockets to allow temporary access for vehicles. The removable wooden post is fitted with a steel pin which secures it to the steel ground socket with a padlock. When not in use the removable timber bollard fully lifts out of the ground socket leaving a steel lid which sits flush to the ground.
Both our Softwood and Hardwood timber bollards can also be utilised as post & rail systems by boring a hole through the post and inserting a galvanised steel tube. Timber post and rail provides an elegant and effective means of restricting access to large areas around car parks and shopping centres.
