Traffic bollards stand up to high-impact crashes

More and more government agencies are installing bollards for security and vehicle traffic control. Bollards, which are metal or plastic posts installed in pavement, can be ordered in removable and collapsible models, and often are installed on building or drive perimeters.

Traffic bollards help secure restricted-access areas. The units assist in providing the security needed to stop unwanted vehicle access. Bollards also provide protection against increasingly common “ram-raiding” activities, in which criminals ram a storefront or other building and dash off with cigarettes, cash registers and other valuables.
