Design and Installation of Indianapolis Bollards
Bollards, what are they? A bollard is described as a pillar or post, naturally made up of a metal pipe anchored in concrete and reinforced by additional concrete, located at building corners, loading docks, entrances, and other essential assets to protect against cars or trucks. Bollards can be a natural color, painted, or covered with plastic bollard covers. The risk from vehicles grow proportionally with the increase in both weight and power, which has required bollard designers and installers to adjust accordingly to meet the risks. Bollards can be categorized by their crash rating. Some Bollards are designed to be flexible and with a low crash rating. These are low speed bollards. High crash rated bollards, or high-speed bollards, are designed to protect buildings and pedestrian zones by slowing or stopping a vehicle immediately causing substantial damage.
