Bollards are used to protect buildings and public spaces from being rammed by vehicles in attacks or accidental crashes. They are mostly used by governments, agencies and private businesses. These bollards usually consist of a steel post which is anchored into a strong subsurface to secure the bollards at impact. They can be buried in the ground or secured on a self-locking taper or impact recovery system. This is to protect the surrounding foundations when a bollard is struck.
The bollard in raised position is highly visible and presents a robust barrier. Whilst in the lowered position it is completely flushed with the road surface allowing unhindered passage to vehicles. Though in case the rising and lowering of the bollard is impossible due to practical reasons, we can supply the shallow mount solutions. These offer sliding bollards without compromising the safety in any way.
When used to complement new or existing architecture, bollards reinforce thematic visual cues At the same time it enhances a sense of security for the place within any neighbourhood or area. Bavak Bollards can also perfectly suit traffic control, particularly where vehicular access needs to be restricted during certain periods. Restrictions can be nessecary in shopping areas, city centres or other pedestrian areas and car parks.
