Bollards and Barriers 

Why are Bollards Important?

Here are some of the main reasons:

  • Bollards provide physical barriers that protect people from vehicle-borne attacks and accidental collisions. This is especially important in crowded areas such as sidewalks, plazas, parks, and outdoor events. By putting up bollards, we can prevent cars or trucks from driving into these spaces and causing harm to the public.

  • Bollards help manage traffic flow and parking in urban areas. By strategically placing bollards, we can create designated lanes or parking zones for vehicles, bikes, or pedestrians. This can reduce congestion, improve safety, and allow for more efficient use of space.

  • Bollards enhance the aesthetic appeal and character of a city. Depending on the design and material used, bollards can add a touch of creativity, elegance, or quirkiness to public spaces. They can also reflect the cultural or historical identity of a neighborhood or city.

  • Bollards support the sustainability of a city by encouraging active and healthy lifestyles. By promoting pedestrian and bike-friendly environments, bollards can reduce air pollution, noise, and carbon emissions from vehicles. They can also encourage people to walk or bike to work or leisure activities, which can improve their physical and mental health.

Where are Bollards Used?

Examples of where they are commonly used:

  • Public places such as parks, plazas, and markets

  • Commercial areas such as malls, restaurants, and banks

  • Government buildings such as courthouses, embassies, and police stations

  • Transportation hubs such as airports, train stations, and bus stops

  • Schools, universities, and other educational institutions

  • Hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities
