With a simple turn of a key, the bollard locks into its embedment sleeve and can only be taken off by unlocking the conveniently located, tamper-resistant lock. Two lid choices are presented to cover openings when bollards are removed: an attached lid that folds down to cover the opening or even a removable lid that locks in place. These bollards are frequently used along with fixed bollards to assist create a flexible type of barrier system that may allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when needed. Even though these removable bollard are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless Internal Locking Removable Bollard (SSR Series) – The SSR combination of internal locking removable bollards are manufactured from stainless for durability, weather-resistance, and aesthetics. Calpipe Security Bollards® offers standard Type 304 grade stainless steel, or harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless steel bollard is polished to some #4 finish.
Security bollards have always been utilized to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is this more apparent than on university campuses, where the flux of foot traffic is frequently constant and vehicles must travel through unique traffic patterns where interactions with pedestrians are unavoidable.
Bollards that can be quickly and inexpensively installed are usually popular on university campuses. Different construction (cast iron, stainless-steel, 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 certain problem in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards may be installed around university events so that you can control traffic around stadiums or conference halls. This may allow university officials to facilitate safe entrances and exits. Embedded and fixed bollards are often used to prohibit vehicle use of private areas. New rotatable or “twist-up” designs like those provided by Calpipe Security Bollards®™ have become more commonplace around university buildings, as they can be lifted and dropped down with only a hand drill and a bit. Twist-up bollards provide an affordable option since they require hardly any maintenance and are ideal for remote areas on campuses where perimeters has to be established.
The university utilization of bollards in congested areas, specially when colleges are located in urban settings such as downtown Atlanta (Georgia State University) or The Big Apple (NYU) has allowed for campus designers to yguowg with new traffic patterns, utilizing bollards being a simple engineering tool to protect pedestrians and cyclists from vehicles, and designate pedestrian areas by blocking vehicular access while allowing pedestrians and cyclists to get in freely in between each bollard. Heavy, permanent bollards are frequently installed around crowded university buildings to limit vehicle congestion and restrict access to certain areas. Retractable bollards, like the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular options for campus integration because they are easy to remove and store otherwise needed, whilst not sacrificing reliability and safety. No matter what the design and safety requirements might be, you will find a bollard accessible to suit every need no matter how specific.
