Our galvanised steel ground sockets are designed to perfectly house timber & steel bollards. If you want to fit a bollard as a security measure or access control solution, but still require occasional access for vehicles, then a steel ground socket is what you are looking for. The heavy duty, fully galvanised steel ground socket will allow you to secure the bollard in place with a padlock and then completely lift it out when access is required.
Steel ground sockets are designed to house removable
street furniture products such as lift out bollards, telescopic security posts
and removable hoop barriers. As our ground sockets are fabricated in-house, we
are able supply fully bespoke sizes. Each ground socket can be supplied with a steel pin, which is fitted to the timber bollard and will allow the post to be locked in place through the laser-cut socket lid slot with the use of a padlock.
We can fabricate steel ground sockets to suit a wide range of diameters and sizes with each socket fully galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 as standard to prevent rusting and ensure a long lasting access control solution. Each ground socket is supplied with a replaceable 6mm thick, laser-cut mild steel lid that sits completely flush with the ground surface when not in use.
The steel lid is completely replaceable, meaning that if it is accidentally damaged by a vehicle, you will not need to completely dig out the socket and can simply contact us for a new lid. The lid has been specially laser-cut and is designed to sit completely flush to the ground level when in the closed position. This flush fitting ensure there is no trip hazard, and will also prevent the build-up of dirt or debris inside the socket.
