As a business owner, you most likely have staircases inside or leading up to your valuable building, and these staircases need protection. By installing bollards near the staircases of buildings, you can protect them from the impacts of car crashes.
Safety for Indoor Staircases
In many factories or other manufacturing facilities, forklifts are constantly driving about the plant—increasing the likelihood that crashes will occur. A forklift operator may be distracted while driving, or the vehicle could malfunction without notice. In either instance, the driver may accidentally run into a staircase, causing major destruction to a valuable area. To prevent any kind of impact near the stairs, you can install permanent or temporary staircase protection bollards.
Outdoor Staircase Protection
Your building is an invaluable asset to your business. Even the smallest damages could be costly and dangerous. When inattentive or reckless drivers have access to hit the staircase attached to your building, it is at a high risk. Some drivers could even choose to participate in destructive ram-raiding activity that could be costly to your company and even hurt employees inside. By installing safety barricades around the perimeter of your facility, you can protect your staircases attached to the building from any impacts, both accidental and intentional.
Choosing the Right Bollards for Your Staircase
For long-lasting staircase protection, you can install permanent bollards around its perimeter. If you’re using a demountable staircase for a temporary project, a removable or collapsible bollard can also provide the same levels of protection. Removable bollards create a safe, flush surface when you remove them, and you can easily fold down collapsible bollards, making both ideal options for areas that you may want to drive over in the future. You will also need your bollards to be noticeable. At TrafficGuard, we coat all of our bollards in a bold yellow finish and 3M reflective tape that is visually powerful while still maintaining the aesthetics of the property.
