Softwood timber bollards provide a cost-effective alternative to our hardwood bollards, while still giving the attractive wooden finish and natural strength. Softwood timber posts are pressure treated as standard and can be supplied in both round and square options. Both options can be supplied cut to any size. Wooden bollards are a rustic, low maintenance and environmentally friendly access control and traffic control solution perfect for grass verge markers, parks, woodland pathways and schools.
The softwood bollards can be finished in a variety of colours or left natural, much the same as the hardwood version. You can also customise the softwood bollards with different head types, recesses and reflective banding. Because of the cheaper nature of softwood bollards, they make a great perimeter protection solution and can also be used as post & rail systems by boring a hole through the post and inserting a galvanised, or powder coated, steel tube.
Once installed, softwood timber posts provide a low-maintenance and durable traffic management and access control solution, and are available in both a fixed version (concreted into the ground) or a removable option. The removable softwood bollard can be lifted from the galvanised ground socket which is concreted into the ground to allow temporary access to vehicles. The removable wooden post has a steel pin inserted which allows it to be locked in place inside the socket using a padlock.
Our softwood timber bollards are manufactured using timber sourced from forests under conservation and re-plantation programmes ensuring an environmentally friendly product. The posts can be fitted with reflectors and reflective bands to increase visibility.
