If you’re looking to protect a particular area from impact then you wouldn’t go far wrong with investing in several sturdy bolt down bollards.

Whether it’s to protect from criminal acts, such as ram-raiding and criminal damage, to safeguard expensive equipment and pedestrians from the impact caused by a wayward vehicle, or even to ward off acts of terrorism, there are many situations where safety bollards are used.

The last thing that you want is to have expensive property damaged or someone injured by a careless accident or worse.

What Are Bolt Down Bollards?

Bollards typically come in two types, dig in and bolt down. A dig in bollard is able to handle a higher level of impact as it, as the name suggests, is dug into the ground. However, a bolt down bollard is still an excellent way to protect certain areas but is easier to install as they are bolted into the ground.

Bolt down bollards are often used within factories and warehouses to protect shelving or to act as physical and visual guides. They can be installed relatively quickly and used effectively can protect equipment, wall edges, and inventory from being bumped up against by vehicles such as forklifts or cleaner vehicles that stray slightly off course, by catching and diverting the vehicle back to safety.

They not only act as a barrier to protect the property but are also very useful for preventing injury, especially when in the form of pedestrian bollards.
