Bollards for vehicle and pedestrian traffic control
Steel bollards can be used for the control of pedestrian and vehicular traffic in busy city streets and shopping areas.
Governments and city planners extensively use bollard for the control of both vehicles and pedestrians, which are especially useful in larger, more crowded cities and towns.
Although, they are very common many people are unaware of their use so many bollards are fitted with signs to give the public the appropriate information.
Common Uses of Bollards
Common bollard uses include traffic bollards and parking bollards.
These bollards are often made of steel, and may be filled with concrete to increase their durability, however most well made steel bollards don’t require the additional strength concrete offers.
These bollards can be used to ensure that vehicles follow in line and don’t overtake one another.
For this purpose steel bollards offer the optimum amount of protection when compared to bollards made of other materials such as plastic, wood or rubber..
When used as traffic delineators or guides, bollards must be brightly coloured, be fitted with reflective stripes or reflectors, or can even be manufactured to make use of hi-tech LED lighting.
The single best way to ensure a bright, long lasting and attractive finish on any metal surface is to use 10 year anti UV powder coating (as Sino Concept's factories in China do).
This will keep the bollard highly visible in all conditions while allowing for the maximum lifetime.
Bollards can also be used for the control of pedestrian traffic in busy city streets and shopping areas.
Again steel bollards, covered in an attractive, hard-wearing powder coat, offer excellent protection for pedestrians while also guiding pedestrian flow.
As pedestrian traffic can vary, and emergency vehicles may need to enter pedestrianised areas, cities often choose to use removable bollards rather than the standard fixed anti-ram bollard.
