Bollards & Post Covers: Decorative, Traffic & Security
Install bollards for a range of decorative and functional applications
Bollards enhance the visual quality of buildings and landscapes while providing visual and physical barriers for safer, more controlled environments.
Building and landscape ornamentation
Decorative bollards improve the visual quality of buildings and landscapes. Choose from a range of styles, including premium ornamental cast designs—made from ductile iron or aluminum—to suit any historical or contemporary aesthetic. Decorative bollards reinforce separation and cohesion in landscape designs while increasing safety and walkability for pedestrians. When used to complement new or existing architecture, bollards reinforce thematic visual cues and enhance a sense of place within a neighborhood or community—and for approaching visitors.
Traffic bollards establish important visual cues for drivers—helping create more stimulating environments for safe and responsible driving. Bollards stand at an optimal height for driver visibility while maintaining clear sightlines and pedestrian flow where needed. Simple, bolt-down bollards can be used to complement new or existing traffic management devices—including signage, road barriers, curbs, speed bumps and crosswalks. Bollards also provide visual indicators around sensitive areas such as exposed building areas, utility boxes, parking attendant booths or pedestrian walkways. When used in dense urban areas, bollards segment bike lanes and pedestrian walkways to ensure safety for all modes of transportation. For parking areas and restricted access roads, bollards can be installed with versatile mountings to allow temporary or seasonal access.
Bollards present clear, visible barriers for off-limit or sensitive areas. Steel-pipe security posts are made from structural grade steel and can be reinforced with concrete to withstand high-impact vehicle collisions. Use security bollards on their own as stand-alone posts or to reinforce decorative bollards. Stand-alone security posts can be covered with cost-effective plastic sleeves to ensure protection from corrosion and to maximize visibility. Steel-pipe bollards are ideal in pedestrian areas—such as building entrances, transit hubs or parking-lot walkways. They are ideal for areas with vulnerable populations—senior citizens, young children or people with disabilities. Security posts also protect vulnerable building areas from deliberate ram-raid thefts.
When installed with customizable mountings, bollards control access to sensitive or restricted areas. Choose from a range of integrated and customizable posts—and mounting types to accommodate any application:
- Removable mountings offer convenient access and minimal obstruction.
- Retractable bollards require no additional storage and can be operated with a single key-locking mechanism housed internally.
- Fold-down bollards allow for quick adjustments and require no additional storage.
Flexible bollards are designed to withstand vehicle impacts—bending up to 90 degrees without compromising their original shape or upright position. They ensure minimal damage to vehicles, making them ideal for locations where collisions may be expected or unavoidable. Flexible bollards can be installed with fixed or removable mounting types.
Solar lighting bollards are ideal for lighting open areas and pathways. They feature LED lighting heads powered entirely by solar cells—requiring no hardwiring or trenching. Intelligent energy management systems take into account available sunlight and seasonal weather patterns to conserve energy and maximize output at desired times. Choose from a range of color, distribution and scheduling patterns.
Bike parking bollards offer the decorative appeal of standard and ornamental bollard designs while also providing a means for convenient bicycle storage. They require only a single installation point and can be equipped with removable mountings for seasonal accommodation.
