Bollards simply are the posts observed outside buildings protecting entry points. That is the location they are most noticeable, but bollards are highly effective in other less noticeable places. Bollards can enhance the look and feel of a building while serving its designed purpose of safety protection.
Bollards Provide Protection
Defining lines of delineation between restricted and unrestricted areas can be as simple as installing a line of bollards. Bollards are visible barriers made of steel-pipe posts from structural grade steel and concrete reinforced for high-speed, high-impact vehicle intrusions. When needed for pedestrian protection, low-speed bollards can redirect traffic and prevent unintentional human and vehicle interactions. As mentioned, there are two basic types of bollards, high speed, and low speed. Low-speed bollards are most commonly used in pedestrian areas such as building entrances, transit hubs, or parking-lot walkways. High-speed bollards are required in areas of vulnerability and provide a level of protection against terroristic and criminal vehicular attacks.
