Bike bollards can be installed into existing concrete with easy-to-use adhesive anchoring systems. Reliance
Foundry uses an epoxy-like adhesive such as the AC100+
Gold Adhesive Anchoring System* to secure the bike
bollard’s threaded rod.
Bike bollards have secure bike-locking arms for reliable bicycle storage and decorative aesthetics enhance
surrounding landscapes. Please note that with this installation method, the bike bollard offers little impact
What you will need
Bike Bollard Base with Bike Arms
Bike Bollard Cap
Threaded Bar 1"
Hex Nut 1"
Hexagon Socket Set Screw
1-1/8" Masonry Drill Bit
3/16" Hex Key
Hammer Drill or Rotary Hammer
AC100+ Gold Adhesive Anchoring System (included)
To protect the finish, keep bike bollards in original packaging until the exact moment of installation.
Handle with care to avoid scratching or damaging bike bollard surfaces as abrasions will lead to rust.
Once scratched, bike bollards cannot be repaired to original form without re-finishing the entire surface.
Check for hazards
Always check for hazards such as water pipes, gas lines, and underground wiring before drilling.
Clean the surface
Dirt and debris can affect the line of sight and disrupt placement of the bike bollards.
Use a broom or pressure washer to clean the concrete surface prior to bike bollard installation.
Study the site plans
Site plans are generally created by the architect of the project.
Refer to site plans to locate and mark the precise center point of each bike bollard.
For secure installation, ensure there is a minimum radius**
of solid concrete around each mark.
Drill the hole
Create pilot hole
Tap a pilot divot hole in the center of each mark.
This will prevent the hammer drill or rotary hammer from drifting while boring the hole.
Set the depth control on the hammer drill (or rotary hammer) to 4"
If depth control is not available, mark 4" on the masonry bit.
Drill the hole
Drill a hole that has a 1-1/8" diameter and 4" depth.
Drill on high speed, using the hammer function if available.
Check the masonry bit often to ensure it remains debris-free.
Secure the bike bollard
Clear the hole
Clear the hole of all debris and/or standing water using the vacuum. Use a brush to remove any remaining
Fill the hole with adhesive
Using the caulking gun, dispense the adhesive until the hole is one-quarter full.
To prevent air pockets from forming, withdraw the mixing nozzle slowly.
Place the bike bollard near the installation
Keep the bollard in its protective packaging. Carefully place the bike bollard near the installation.
When ready to install, remove its protective packaging.
Set the bike bollard on top of the drilled hole
Set the bike bollard base upright and maneuver it so the center lines up with the drilled hole.
Insert the threaded rod
Lower the threaded rod through the bike bollard’s shaft.
Insert the threaded rod the full 4" into the hole while turning for positive adhesion. The rod should be
centered in the bike bollard’s shaft.
Note: A minimum of 45 minutes at 68˚F is required for the anchoring system to set. Do not disturb torque
or load the anchor until adhesive has fully cured.
Set the washer over the threaded rod
Place the washer over the threaded rod so that it rests on top of the shaft of the bike bollard.
Apply the 1" nut to the threaded rod and use a wrench to tighten until the bike bollard is secure.
Note: Be sure to check the orientation of the bike bollard arms before securing the bike bollard.
Secure the bike bollard’s cap
Remove the bike bollard cap from its packaging.
Place the cap on the top of the shaft of the bike bollard.
Secure and align the cap to the bike bollard base with the three set screws. Tighten in equal amounts to
ensure that the cap remains centered.
Place the plastic plugs (A) over the heads of the set screws.
Inspect the installation
From a distance, examine the plane of view.
Ensure the bike bollard is plumb to the surface, and the surface is flat.
Check the bike bollard for any signs of surface damage
Abrasions should be covered as soon as possible to prevent rust and ensure the proper life of the bike
bollard. For damage repair or other servicing needs, please contact Reliance
Foundry’s sales department.
