What materials are
bollards available in?
Mild Steel Bollards:
Fabricated in-house using British steel, the mild steel bollard is a simple, strong and effective means of access control and perimeter protection. A no-nonsense steel tube with a welded top cap, mild steel bollards can be galvanised to prevent rust and powder coated in any RAL colour.
Stainless Steel Bollards:
Stainless steel bollards have the strength and durability of mild steel but will not rust over time. Stainless steel is often preferred for its attractive polished finish and low-maintenance, anti-vandal properties. Available with a selection of fixing methods, head types and banding options.
Sourced exclusively from sustainable forestry schemes, our timber bollards provide the strength and durability of metal, with the natural charm of wood. Timber bollards are a versatile method of perimeter protection and access control, suitable for urban and rural applications.
Using 100% recycled materials, recycled plastic bollards are a great way to convert old waste into a strong and long-lasting traffic and access control solution. Recycled plastic bollards are an environmentally friendly, cost effective and incredibly strong form of perimeter protection.
What types of bollards are available?
When a permanent access control solution is required, a fixed bollard will provide cost effective, long-lasting and strong protection. Fixed bollards can either be concreted into the ground (root/ragged fix)or bolted to the surface using base plates (bolt down/base plate fix).
Fold Down Parking Post:
Folding bollards are bolted to the ground and designed to lay flat to the surface when unlocked and lowered. This allows vehicles to pass over the parking post unobstructed. Fold down bollards are locked in the raised position using a padlock. The simple design makes this a reliable and convenient security product more suited to residential usage.
Telescopic bollards are housed inside a long, steel ground socket which is concreted into the ground. On the top of the bollard is a key-operated, push button lock, used to raise and lower the security post. The telescopic bollard can be locked in the raised and lowered position. When lowered, the bollard drops down into the ground and is protected by a flush fitting lid plate.
Removable bollards sit inside a concreted in ground socket when in use. Unlike the telescopic post, the removable bollard is lifted out of the socket completely when not in use. The lift out bollard is secured in place using a padlock. When not in use, the security post is stored away until needed back on duty.
How deep should a bollard be buried?
We would recommend fixing a standard steel bollard (1200mm overall bollard length), a minimum of 300mm into the concrete foundations. For heavy duty bollards (1500mm - 1800mm overall bollard length) we would recommend a minimum root depth of 500mm - 600mm.
