Do I need bollards?

Many features go into the design of a safely functioning parking lot. Safety features are installed throughout a parking lot. For example, traffic signs are important for directing traffic in a parking lot, speed bumps slow the traffic flow, and other safety features including safety bollards, or steel bollards, are used to protect structures and fixtures within or around a building.

Why would I need steel bollards?

Safety steel bollards are large steel posts that help vehicles avoid the potential error of crashing into objects or property. These bollards mark potential obstacles and offer some protection of property if crashed into. They can also protect interior fixtures such as pipes or other areas in a warehouse for instance. Steel bollards are used for safety purposes for interior and exterior cautionary protection as needed.

Safety bollards can be placed as temporary fixtures, or permanent. When installed permanently, these steel bollards are filled with concrete. You most likely have seen these safety bollards, often painted yellow, placed in front of buildings to prevent drivers from crashing into the property.
