Access control is important in areas with high pedestrian traffic and in areas with high amounts of security, and these areas are often the most troublesome to maintain. “Authorized Access Only” signs and other visible warnings only go so far when it comes to preserving limited access. People have a tendency to ignore or disregard warning signs and others may not be aware they are encroaching on a secured or access controlled area. In these situations, the use of bollards can help facilitate and establish areas of access control, as well as provide a method of supplying selective entry to authorized vehicles and personnel.
There are a number of different bollards available for use in situations that require access control, from round bollards and concrete ball bollards, to square concrete bollards and Gorilla Post bollards. Some devices are designed to immediately give way upon impact, reducing the amount of damage done to both the device and the vehicle that struck it. Others provide a formidable barrier against deliberate attempts to breach the area of access control. These devices absorb the impact of most heavy objects while retaining their structural integrity.
Removable bollards make an excellent solution for those who want a semi-permanent solution for access control and parking. These bollards feature a removable top portion made from heavy-duty metal or high strength plastic and a base that is anchored into the ground. Removable bollards are removable from their base to allow traffic to enter or exit the area. These posts are often ideal for the temporary display of parking signs, particularly in areas where parking rules must remain as flexible as possible.
Gorilla Post bollards utilize a magnetic mounting system that makes it difficult to remove through normal means. Gorilla Post bollards use a special post puller for this very reason. Bollard covers provide protection for round bollards and removable bollards. These bollard covers provide protection from rust, erosion and other types of damage. Businesses can decorate or repaint their bollard covers to reflect the color schemes of surrounding structures or to provide visual warnings for others. Bollard covers are also practical for some varieties of removable bollards and round bollards.
Square concrete bollards and ball bollards make for an ideal way of providing access control that meshes well with the surrounding environment. These unpainted concrete posts provide a sophisticated look that complements most upscale areas.
Ball bollards offer the same features, only with a unique style that lends itself well to modern buildings and other similar structures. Ball bollards come in a variety of sizes and some feature their own pedestals. Both square concrete bollards and ball bollards represent permanent solutions for access control. Therefore, these bollards should only be used if they are to remain for a very long time.
