Why Removable and Collapsible Bollards are Ideal for Security
Many people think fixed bollards are their only option for enhanced security of their businesses, sidewalks, homes or other locations. Sometimes, though, you need to create access to these areas for vehicle or foot traffic. Removable and collapsible bollards have the same strength as permanent bollards, yet they provide the flexibility needed.
Removable BollardsRemovable bollards are an alternative to the fixed bollard style, giving users increased flexibility of site access. When a removable bollard post is detached from its sleeve, its lid creates a flush surface on the ground that is safe to walk or drive over. This removable style helps control what traffic can pass through your site. For additional security from outside tampering, you can add a padlock to your removable bollard post.
Collapsible BollardsSimilar to removable bollards, collapsible bollards can be used for protection as needed. When upright, collapsible bollards provide the same level of strength and protection as permanent bollards. When they are pushed down, though, they create safe clearance for drivers.
Strength...As a business owner, you hope that you will never have the need for a barrier post to prevent any accidental or intentional crashes. However, when the moment comes, you’ll want to be assured that your bollards can withstand the power of a harsh impact. Choose post bollards, either in removable or collapsible styles, from a company that constructs them from stainless steel. This way, you’ll know both can provide the strength you will need to prevent damage if an accident does occur. For protection against environmental elements, you may also want to look for bollards that have a rust- and corrosion-resistant coating.
...Without Compromising VersatilityRemovable and collapsible bollard posts are excellent preventative measures to include in your property’s safety plans. Still, you may run into instances where you do not want to use a security post long-term. Both removable and collapsible bollards are ideal for temporary protection. Removable bollards are available with an internal locking system, so you can have control over who accesses your lot. Many business owners also use collapsible post bollards in parking lots to indicate private parking spots or to direct traffic flow, especially during temporary events. However, both bollard styles can work for an endless list of applications, making them an ideal choice for safeguarding multiple property styles.
