Bollards are used in various places where it is necessary to protect an area from vehicle traffic. Because the bollards are installed in public spaces, they need to tolerate the outdoor elements under any type of weather condition and still maintain a good appearance. They must be constructed from a material that will not rust or corrode. For these reasons, stainless steel bollards are the best solution for these applications.
Bollards are commonly seen in places like hospitals, schools, and other places where vehicle traffic and pedestrian traffic share a common space. An example is the parking lot. When there are no clear pedestrian sidewalks, drivers can run the risk of driving to an area where there is a lot of pedestrian traffic. This causes confusion for the drivers and pedestrians, and it endangers the safety of pedestrians. Bollards that are installed in the right places can create effective visual barriers for the driver so they will not be able to cross over to an area intended only for pedestrians.
Bollards do not need to be permanent fixtures. If there is a temporary need to keep cars from driving to an area where they can normally go, like for a temporary closure of a road, removable or retractable bollards can be used for this application.
A company that specializes in custom bollards can help you figure out what type of stainless steel bollards you need for your specific requirements. Based on the area of your space and the reasons why you need the bollards, the company will recommend a design and size that would be the most appropriate for your needs. They can help you figure out how many you would need based on the space. After the specifications are decided, the company will manufacture these and install them on your premises.
