Design and Installation of Jacksonville Bollards
Bollards, what are they? A bollard is pillar or post, usually comprised of a metal pipe anchored in concrete and then reinforces with more concrete, located near building corners, loading docks, entrance doors, and gas pumps in order to protect against cars or trucks; may be left natural, painted, or covered with plastic bollard covers. As vehicles increase in both weight and power, it has necessitated bollard installation and design to adapt accordingly to meet the demand. Bollards can be categorized into two basic bollard groups. Bollards designed to be flexible and meant for traffic control, also known as low speed bollards, in one group. The other group high speed bollards are meant to protect buildings and pedestrian zones by slowing or stopping a vehicle immediately causing substantial damage.
