Safety bollards play a significant role in the realm of security and traffic management

As a part of our signature projects, we install safety bollards. We’re not merely a fence installation company. There are many high-security additions that we can install on your commercial establishment. Safety bollards play a significant role in the realm of security and traffic management. Today, we’re going to shed light on a few of the many functions that they serve. 

Automobile Accident Prevention

Safety bollards create an outline for zones where cars should not be. They prevent people from parking too close to sidewalks and help with speed control. Narrow lanes force drivers to slow down and control their speed. 


Safety bollards outfitted with lighting devices help to illuminate poorly-lit areas. These modern lighting features enhance visibility. But also, any well-lit area discourages wrongdoing. 

Access Control

Police officers, in particular, use safety bollards to divert the public away from a crime scene. They are also used to slow oncoming vehicles traveling at high speeds. This function for bollards became often used, especially after 9/11. From flexible structures connected via yellow tape or large monuments that serve as both raised flowerbeds and sculptures, safety bollards come in various useful forms. 

Historic Site Preservation 

The National Register of Historic Places reports over 90,000 buildings, sites, objects, and districts that fall under this category. With that in mind, given their “historic” nature, it doesn’t take much to deface or damage these locations. Officials use safety bollards to discourage reckless behavior and to preserve these historic sites. These bollards can be lightweight and portable or very sizable depending on the budget and changing circumstances. What’s excellent about hiring us is that we offer permanent and temporary solutions for keeping your commercial establishment safe. 

Racer Safety

Bollards encourage general public safety as well as racers during their events. Sporting officials use bollards to alert racers of sharp turns or any other circumstances that may affect driver safety. If a racer accidentally hits a bollard, their flexible design makes it so that it breaks away from its base with ease.
