How to Install Decorative Bollards with a Drop-In Insert
Reliance Foundry bollards can be installed on existing concrete surfaces with a drop-in insert. Drop-in insert installation is recommended for decorative applications to create architectural perimeters. This installation technique offers little impact resistance.
Drop-in anchors should only be installed in fully cured concrete that is at least 6 inches thick. All measurements in this installation guide assume a bare, level concrete surface.
This installation type is available for Reliance Foundry Bollard Series: R-7500, R-7600, R-7700, and R-7800.
