Having a simple turn of a key, the bollard locks into its embedment sleeve and can only be removed by unlocking the conveniently located, tamper-resistant lock. Two lid options are given to cover openings when bollards are removed: an attached lid that folds down to cover the opening or perhaps a removable lid that locks into place. These bollards tend to be used along with fixed bollards to aid create a flexible type of barrier system that can allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when needed. Even though these locking bollards are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless Steel Internal Locking Removable Bollard (SSR Series) – The SSR number of internal locking removable bollards are manufactured from stainless steel for durability, weather-resistance, and aesthetics. Calpipe Security Bollards® offers standard Type 304 grade stainless, or harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless bollard is polished to your #4 finish.
Security bollards have for ages been utilized to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is this more apparent than on university campuses, in which the flux of foot traffic is frequently constant and vehicles must navigate through unique traffic patterns where interactions with pedestrians are unavoidable.
Bollards that may be quickly and inexpensively installed are always sought after on university campuses. Different construction (cast iron, stainless, steel/cast iron composite, recycled plastic, plastic covers) and design (fixed, telescoping, removable, collapsible, and collapsible/concealable) options enable campus architects to select the right bollard to solve a specific problem in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards could be installed around university events in order to control traffic around stadiums or conference halls. This may allow university officials to facilitate safe entrances and exits. Embedded and fixed bollards can be used to prohibit vehicle usage of private areas. New rotatable or “twist-up” designs like those provided by Calpipe Security Bollards®™ are becoming more commonplace around university buildings, as they possibly can be lifted and dropped down with only a hand drill and a bit. Twist-up bollards provide an affordable option since they require little to no maintenance and are best for remote areas on campuses where perimeters should be established.
The university use of bollards in congested areas, specifically when colleges can be found in urban settings including downtown Atlanta (Georgia State University) or New York (NYU) has allowed for campus designers to yguowg with new traffic patterns, utilizing bollards as a simple engineering tool to safeguard pedestrians and cyclists from vehicles, and designate pedestrian areas by blocking vehicular access while allowing pedestrians and cyclists to get into freely in between each bollard. Heavy, permanent bollards tend to be installed around crowded university buildings to limit vehicle congestion and restrict access to certain areas. Retractable bollards, such as the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular selections for campus integration because they are simple to remove and store if not needed, without sacrificing reliability and safety. No matter what the design and safety requirements could be, there exists a bollard accessible to suit every need regardless of how specific.
