What are bollards?

A bollard is a short vertical post. Originating from nautical operations, it meant a post used on a ship or a quay, principally for mooring. The word 'bollard' now also describes a variety of items that control or direct road traffic, such as posts arranged in a line to obstruct the passage of motor vehicles whilst allowing pedestrian or bicycle access. Bollards are principally used to separate vehicles from pedestrians and protect high-cost structures or objects from damage by moving vehicles. Bollards vary in height and diameter depending on the degree of security required. They are a specialty product that targets a specific task or threat.

We manufacture and import a complete range of Bollards, including:

  • Disabled parking bollards
  • Removable bollards
  • Stainless steel bollards
  • Timber bollards
  • Automatic bollards
  • Concrete bollards
  • Fold-down bollards.

We can also customise bollards to your requirements, whether it be custom coloured, custom lengths, custom concrete designs, dome tops, chain rings, removable storage sleeves, custom reflective or any other customisation you require. Most of our range is manufactured to higher specifications than all other bollards on the market. Galvanisation before powder coating, heavier wall thickness i.e. 5mm instead of standard 3mm, and higher quality local powder coating.
