Whether you have a parking lot, a parking garage, or a street parking zone area, you need to keep it safe with parking bollard protection. Using the right protection can save you money and give you peace of mind.
Uses for Parking Bollard Protection
Bollards are created, by design, to provide a visible barrier that helps direct traffic, whether it’s vehicle traffic or pedestrian traffic. In addition, bollards can be manufactured to withstand high-impact collisions.
Chances are you also have some expensive equipment in your parking area including mechanical security gates, booths, and ticket machines. Bollards can also be used to protect these areas from impact from a vehicle.
Types of Parking Bollard Protection
There are many different types of bollards, so you should be able to find the right fit for your specific needs. From steel pipe bollards which should be used in areas that need protection from possible high impact collisions, to surface mounted bollards for better visibility we have the right protection for you.
Bollard types include:
- Surface mounted
- Steel pipe
- Bolt down
When you decide on a specific bollard, you’ll also want to select the right sleeve or cover. Both are used to protect the bollard from any possible damage or rust. Also, depending on the selected cover, it can provide greater visibility, so both people and vehicles can see the bollard easily.
