What are bollard barriers? 

All barriers and bollards are designed to increase protection in high-risk areas where incidents can take place. This includes places such as car parks, public spaces, warehouses and such. They come in a variety of materials and styles. At Armco Direct, our bollards come with a galvanised finish. We also provide bollards that are powder-coated yellow. The reason behind this is that the yellow increases their visibility when it is dark, meaning these bollards and barriers can more easily be seen and adhered to by the general public or workers on site. They can be designed to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible, depending on where they are being placed. Bollards, while offering a safety element, have also been used to draw out the surrounding areas and bring out the features of the building or land in front. 

What Are The Different Types of Car Park Bollards?

The different types of bollard

There are a range of different bollards available depending on your needs and the overall barrier system you are hoping to put in place. We have over a decade of industry experience and will make sure that we give you the product you are looking for to fulfil your needs.

Industrial Safety bollards

Crash bollards 

At Armco Direct, our crash bollards are made using our famous 100% recyclable galvanised steel. Crash bollards can be used in a range of different situations both indoor and outdoor. They are used as an added level of protection and security for the premises. This includes places such as a warehouse or a loading bay. 

Unlike other barrier systems, they do not take a long time to install. This allows them to be a quick solution to help vehicles, such as heavy goods vehicles, from going out of control, preventing lasting damage and injury to drivers and passers-by alike. They come in a range of sizes so you can cater the crash bollards to suit your needs. To discuss this in more detail, please contact our team on 01530 839 955. 

Safety bollards 

Safety bollards or security bollards are used in instances where an occupied space needs some added protection. They can divide up space and be used to guide drivers, cyclists and pedestrians to enhance their safety in the event of collisions. 

Pedestrian bollards 

Pedestrian bollards are put in place to ensure that passers-by and those entering the building, car park or loading bay remain safe. The focus of these barriers should be offering physical protection while also not inconveniencing the pedestrians themselves. The Department for Transport has outlined some of the considerations to make when it comes to fixing these barriers in place. This includes considering the rate of pedestrians travelling through the barrier at one given time. This helps to avoid obstruction and impact on the flow of people walking through the barrier. The barriers should also be spaced out enough to ensure the pedestrians still have a level of personal space and can move freely. You can read the full document here to make sure your barriers are put in place correctly and in line with government recommendations. 

Protective bollards 

A protective bollard is a name given to a short post that allows you to form a protective barrier. It is a visual aid to guide traffic and mark boundaries in the road. You usually see them in places such as hospitals, warehouses and loading bays. You can find them in a variety of sizes in line with your requirements. At Armco Direct, we provide bollards that are 5mm wall thickness. They are available for both dig-in or bolt-down installation, depending on which method suits your project best.
