Drive-Up Area and Drop-Off Area Bollards
In the realm of drive-up lanes and drop off areas, it’s not uncommon to see plenty of security measures implemented to keep vehicles and pedestrians alike as safe as possible. One way that this is done is with bollards, which can be used to not only protect property, but also to clearly mark traffic patterns so that vehicles don’t accidentally pull in the wrong way and cause a crash. Bollards make it so that traffic lanes where cars can and cannot go are easily discernible, and because there are varying levels of security and permanence offered in different models, it’s easy to find the best solution for your building’s drive-up areas.
Reduce Traffic Confusion
When bollards are installed in high-traffic drive-up areas and drop-off areas, the line between lanes is made much clearer and can help prevent any confusion between where cars should be driving. Particularly with very busy or two-way lanes, bollard separation between directions can help reduce the amount of collisions and traffic back-up due to drivers pulling in the wrong way. When drivers have a clear indication of where they should be driving, you’ll notice fewer problems with your drive-up area.
Protect Pedestrians and Property
In addition to directing traffic and reducing confusion among drivers, bollards installed in drop-off areas can also protect pedestrian traffic and the property. By reducing driver confusion, there may be less chance of a driver swerving out of the way of another car, which, without bollards, could cause a different sort of accident. Further, bollards alert pedestrians that there is an area ahead that is used by cars, allowing them to be more aware of their surroundings when walking around the area. Bollards can also help protect property by helping prevent a vehicle from ramming into a building either by accident or on purpose.
Choose Your Level of Permanence and Security
At TrafficGuard Direct, we offer an array of different bollard models, which makes it easy to find the perfect solution for your needs. If you’re interested in permanent bollards for the drive-up or drop-off area, fixed bollards are ideal. However, less permanent options—removable bollards—are also available and offer effective security. If you choose removable bollards, you can choose between locking and non-locking models. The level of permanence and security is up to you. If you have any questions or need more information contact TrafficGuard today.
