Sutton-In-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/09/2012 -- Bollards HQ, the leading online resource for bollard needs, builds up bollard products. The company had given an introductory guide to the various types of bollards on the market today.
As an introduction, the spokesperson of Bollards HQ said :
“The main function of bollards is to provide an open barrier to separate pedestrians from vehicles.
Increasingly they can also act as a protective ram-raid feature around a building or other vulnerable area. The end use of a bollard will affect the design selection process as the visibility in terms of height, width and finish will have to be considered. The bollards can be personalised to customer requirements and have optional features added such as reflective strips, badges, stubbing plates and eyebolts.”
“Concrete bollards products can be produced with smooth grey finish or smooth plain white finish. Concrete will always exceed the minimum requirement of 30N/mm2. Bollards will be cast with an internal steel reinforcement cage, which will in the event of severe impact maintain the integrity of the unit.”
“Stainless Steel Bollards maybe made with a satin finish suitable for all inland installations or even suited for coastal installations. Hollow tubular and square sections are available in the market today.”
“Steel Bollards are shotblasted prior to finishing all steel. The product can be supplied primed only, electro zinc plated and powder coated or hot dipped galvanised.”
“Polymer Bollards are an ideal example of low maintenance barriers. In our case, they are manufactured using a high quality engineering grade polyurethane cast around a mild steel core section thus making it ideal for car park security bollards.”
“Timber Bollards or Wooden Bollards are manufactured from high quality hardwood timbers. They offer some advantages but require higher levels of bollard maintenance.”
“Cast Iron Bollards products are finished using a high zinc protective priming coat before a wet spray top coat. Ductile cast iron bollards offer high tensile strength as opposed to grey cast iron with minimal tensile strength.”
