Can you provide quotes for custom bollard designs?
Reliance Foundry considers custom bollards on a case-by-case basis. Most custom bollards are produced only for high-volume orders. When considering a custom-cast bollard, please note that custom bollards may take between 2 and 7 months to design, manufacture and deliver.
Alternatively, Reliance Foundry will modify existing bollard designs to meet specific requirements. Contact Reliance Foundry's Sales Department to discuss custom or modified bollard projects.
How are bollards installed?
Bollards can be installed in many different ways depending on the installation site and intended application. Each item page lists the available installation options for that model. Visit the installation page for details on all installation methods.
NOTE: Some installation types will require additional mounting hardware (sold separately).
Does Reliance Foundry provide installation services?
Reliance Foundry does not offer installation services. Installations are normally performed by a local contractor. If you are unable to connect with a general contractor, Reliance Foundry’s sales department may be able to provide you with a list of contractors in your area. Contact Reliance Foundry’s Sales Department for more information. Please note that the provision of a contractor’s contact information does not constitute an endorsement by Reliance Foundry.
What will I receive with my bollard order?
All bollards and bollard covers are shipped complete with necessary mounting hardware kits and installation instructions. Specialized mounting hardware may be sold separately. All bollards and bollard covers by Reliance Foundry are individually packaged for protection against damage during shipping.
If you have any questions about the hardware included in your order, please contact Reliance Foundry’s Sales department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are the sizes and dimensions of each bollard?
Basic dimensions, including height and base diameter, can be found on individual product pages. Bollards used as post covers also include internal dimensions. More detailed information can be found in the "Product Drawing" or "CAD Drawings" documents — found on individual product pages or on our Downloads page.
Are your bollards crash-rated or K-rated?
Reliance Foundry does not currently offer crash-rated bollards.
Our steel-pipe security bollards have been designed for high-impact protection, but they have not been certified according to a standardized rating system such as the Department of State "K" ratings. If using Reliance Foundry security bollards for crash protection, an engineer should be consulted to determine suitability for specific applications.
How far apart should bollards be installed?
Individual municipalities and institutions may have specific regulations for bollard spacing. Be sure to consult the appropriate authorities before planning an installation. Bollards are often spaced 4–5 feet apart to form an effective vehicle barrier while maintaining unobstructed passage for pedestrians.
What should I do before drilling into a concrete surface?
Before beginning an installation, ensure ground surfaces do not contain any hidden utility pipes or wires. Contact your local utilities providers and/or conduct X-ray examinations of all areas to be drilled or excavated.
What country are your products made in?
Reliance Foundry products are designed in Canada and manufactured by our international sister foundries. We maintain the highest quality standards at every stage of the production process.
