Decorative bollard materials
To ensure long service life with minimal maintenance, decorative bollards are made from quality materials. All ductile iron, steel and aluminum bollards feature powder coatings to ensure lasting durability against weathering and use.
Ductile iron: Unlike standard cast iron, which is highly brittle and susceptible to cracking, ductile iron offers excellent strength, hardness, and resilience to wear, making it more suitable for site furnishing applications. Ductile iron is highly castable, allowing for intricate patterns and ornamentation.
Steel: Steel bollards are made from fabricated steel, customized to suit a range of ornamental and security applications. Due to its strength and durability, steel is one of the most widely used building materials worldwide. With proper care, it has an extremely long lifespan. Oversize models are especially suitable for large, high-impact steel pipe applications.
Aluminum: Aluminum is a lightweight material ideal for removable bollard configurations. Reliance Foundry uses a tempered, low-density alloy that provides an ideal balance of ductility and hardness. Natural corrosion resistance ensures bollards look their best in demanding environments.
