Reliance Foundry Launches Steel Pipe Security Bollards
New product line means installers can source anti-ram hardware and protective covers from the same company
Steel pipe security bollards are available in a range of different sizes
Reliance Foundry Co. Ltd., North America’s premier supplier of bollards, bike racks and custom castings, announced the release of their new steel pipe security bollards. Reliance Foundry already offers an extensive range of decorative and utility covers to protect security posts. Now, the new product line will make for easier, one-stop shopping for both internal security posts and complementary bollard covers for all North American locations.
"We think this is going to make things a lot easier for bollard installers," says Reliance Foundry's Product Manager, Len Cranmore. "Having the ability to order both a steel pipe bollard and a bollard cover from the same supplier will also help to ensure compatibility between the two products."
Steel pipe security bollards are ideal in protecting utility areas
Steel security bollards provide a high degree of impact protection—helping protect buildings, pedestrians, landscape features and other important assets from vehicle impacts. Made from ASTM 500 B structural grade steel, each post is sold at a standard 7-foot length—designed to be embedded and reinforced with concrete. With proper installation, steel posts will withstand significant shocks, ensuring effective protection for sensitive areas. Install protective bollards individually or aligned in strip-footing configurations. Bollards are available in four different diameters (4, 6, 8, and 10 inches) of schedule 40 steel and come pre-coated in a protective primer. Pipes can be cut to specific sizes if needed—and for high-volume orders, galvanization is also available.
Steel pipe security bollards can be covered with ornamental castings
Steel pipe bollards are sold in standard sizes, ready to be configured with decorative or utility covers. All protective covers ensure protection from corrosion and daily wear—eliminating the need for regular painting and maintenance. Plastic sleeves offer the most basic protection from weathering and are available in a range of highly visible colors and reflective options—making them ideal for high-traffic environments such as loading bays, parking lots, service roads and other commercial or industrial areas. Reliance Foundry also offers decorative covers made from cast metals and pre-fabricated stainless steel. A range of styles are available to suit any building or landscape architecture.
"Today, businesses need to operate very quickly to keep customers happy," says Brent Done, President at Reliance Foundry. "We realize time is extremely valuable to installers, and we hope the new steel pipe bollard offerings make the whole ordering process faster and easier."
Pricelists for all Reliance Foundry products, including volume discounts, are available online. View individual products to request formal quotes within 1 business day, which will include shipping rates to specified locations. Detailed instructions and installation videos are also available at the company website.
Note: A range of factors—including but not limited to a bollard's dimensions, installation materials and length of embedded material—can affect the amount of protection provided by steel pipe bollards. Reliance Foundry does not state any claims as to the level of impact resistance provided for any of its non-crash-rated products. Please consult an engineer to ensure proper selection and installation of steel pipe bollards for your intended application.
