What is a Bollard?


 Bollards are a very common and essential part of most streetscapes. Bollards provide a simple purpose; to provide protection from vehicles, to guide both pedestrian and vehicular traffic, and to restrict access to designated areas. 

The possibilities however are nearly endless from size, shape, material, and installation methods.

In addition we also provide Plastic Bollard Covers, a low maintenance way to maintain the appearance of your bollards, removing the need to repaint or fix chips and cracks.

Our Steel Bollards have the following installation methods; embedded fixed, surface mounted, and removable embedded


Our Fixed Embedded Steel Bollards are not removable and provide solid protection against vehicle incursion. The bollards impact resistance is determined by a combination of the steel bollard diameter, wall thickness, and engineered footing. Fixed Embedded Steel Bollards are often filled with concrete for additional strength.


Our Surface Mounted Steel Bollards are well suited to deter unwanted vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Surface Mounted Steel Bollards are secured to the ground with a base plate that allows for more flexibility in terms of placement, but are less impact resistant than our Fixed Embedded Steel Bollards.


Our Removable Embedded Steel Bollards provide more impact resistance then Surface Mounted Steel Bollards and are removable to allow access to otherwise restricted areas. They balance convenience and flexibility with strength and are a great solution to areas that need to both allow and restrict traffic.

How To Choose The Right Bollard for the Job!

To somebody unfamiliar with bollards, choosing the right bollard may seem confusing and difficult. Below we have outlined some of the factors for consideration
and questions you should ask when choosing the right bollard.

3 Most Important Factors when Considering the right bollard.

1) Access Requirements
- Does the location need to restrict access at certain times but allow access at other times?

Removable bollards can provide flexibility in deciding when to allow and restrict access.

2) Visibility
- Is the placement of bollards easily seen by the general public or out-of-view?

The more visible the bollards are to the public the more one must balance appearance versus utility. 

3) Geography
- What type of weather must the bollard endure due to its geographical location?

For example locations that receive heavy snow in the winter months must think about visibility and placement to prevent impact from snowplows. When installing bollards into the ground frost lines must be taken into consideration to determine how deep they must be placed. 

If you would like to discuss any of these questions with our knowledgeable sales team, please call 800-262-3296. Thank you.
