Over time, any given area could erode and break down. When these areas are subject to extensive traffic, they could break down even more—especially if vehicles are driving through day in and day out. A single vehicular impact could irreversibly damage the land you’re trying to protect. To conserve your structural area, you will need to install some type of impact protection barrier, like a bollard.
Preventing Erosion and Decay
Over time, any surface that cars drive over can become increasingly broken down. When cars drive over irreplaceable areas, like hillsides or historic trails, they can erode beyond repair. To protect these areas, you will need to install traffic barriers to block out unwanted traffic. Once in place, these can adequately deter any vehicles, while still allowing for foot traffic to come through.
Which Bollard is Right for You
As you try to protect your particular structure or area, you’ll need to decide which bollard will work best with the surrounding environment. Permanent bollards may be ideal for you if you want long-term protection from impacts, as well as the outside elements. Fixed bollards provide solid security and protection for years to come.
For flexible structural conservation, you may want to choose removable or collapsible bollards. Removable and collapsible bollards lend unwavering protection like permanent bollards, but you can also remove them when necessary. Removable bollards fit into ground sleeves. To remove them, you can simply lift them and store them until next needed. You can fold collapsible bollards down when they are not required, making them an ideal option for flexible protection.
For any impact protection barrier you choose, you will want something that creates a visual deterrent to prohibit cars from driving through. At TrafficGuard, we coat all of our bollards in a bright yellow coating and 3M reflective tape that is authoritative while still preserving the aesthetics of the area.
