Bollards Making History – Dragon Teeth Concrete Bollards

Protection bollards have high efficiency and are indeed multifunctional. For example, in the past, they did not use concrete bollards only to protect pedestrians and delineate zones that are vehicle and traffic free. It might surprise you to hear that dragon teeth bollards played a big role in the Second World War!

Hopefully, nowadays bollards will become more appealing as bollard manufacturers created new designs for steel bollard. Do not hesitate in discovering all of our steel bollards.

CONCRETE BOLLARDS AS SECRET WEAPONS 

Most of the European forces used Pyramidal bollard shapes made from reinforced concrete during the above-mentioned war to limit the penetration of hostile tanks and other armament vehicles.

Each “tooth” was 3- 4 feet high and some of them even had steel beams placed on top. Underneath these precast concrete bollards, a concrete mat was hidden making impossible for the enemy forces to dig tunnels under the dragon teeth bollards. Furthermore, between each “dragon tooth,” they placed landmines.

It is obvious that they received this bollard name due to their fierce characteristics. You might still see these concrete bollards in some parts of Switzerland where they keep them for strategic reasons.

Nevertheless, in some other countries like Germany and France, they stand as monuments proudly telling a story about past times.
