Versatile protection from vehicle access and accidents

Safeguard your space with security bollards

Access control isn’t always about keeping intruders out of your premises. Perhaps you’re managing a site used by large numbers of people, such as a pedestrianised shopping area. Or maybe your site contains valuable assets, like a car dealership or bank. Keeping people safe and property protected should be top priorities.

If your site borders a busy road, vehicle accidents could cause injuries and property damage. You may also need to assess the risk of deliberate attacks by ram-raiders, terrorists, or other criminals. In these circumstances, road bollards can play a key role in your hostile vehicle mitigation strategy.

Why should I choose bollards?

Bollards help you protect against unauthorised vehicle access, accidental damage and forced entry.

Bollards mark your boundaries

You can use traffic bollards to demarcate your space. This clearly communicates to visitors when they are entering and exiting your premises. It can also help to set their expectations that this is a zone where vehicles are prohibited or tightly controlled.

Bollards let foot traffic flow

Unlike walls or fencing, a line of road bollards allows pedestrians to flow freely across your perimeter. Bollards are an ideal solution for pedestrianised areas because they do not restrict foot traffic or create bottlenecks.

Bollards keep your site safe

Metal bollards can provide you with a robust defence against unauthorised vehicles. When they are securely anchored to solid foundations, they can stop even heavy vehicles travelling at high speeds.

What types of security bollards are available?

Fixed bollards provide a simple, robust, low-maintenance option for spaces that need 24/7 protection. Meanwhile, telescopic bollards (also known as electric bollards, collapsible bollards, rising bollards or retractable bollards) offer more flexibility. They are useful when vehicles occasionally need to cross your perimeter—for example, at the entrance to a driveway.
