Getting Started …
Bollard and installation type: Be sure to select the right bollard and installation type to suit the needs of your site. A range of bollard-types are available with customizable mounting options.
Keep them packaged: Keep all bollards and associated hardware in packaging to avoid unnecessary damage prior to placement and installation.
Ensure safety: Bollard and cover installations require drilling into concrete surfaces. Contact your local utility providers and conduct X-ray scans of all installation sites to ensure hazards are not present.
Review all materials and instructions: To ensure efficient installation and to avoid unnecessary damage or injury, review all materials and instructions prior to installation. Ensure all tools and equipment are available, including any assistance required for safe lifting and placement of bollards.
Ensure alignment: Measure and mark all mounting locations prior to installation. For straight-line configuration, use a chalk line to ensure uniform arrangement.
Never slide or drag: Bollards and post covers should never be slid or dragged. If bollards or covers need to be set down, cushion with packaging material to avoid scrapes and abrasions.
Prepare touch-ups: Have touch-up paint on site in case bollards or covers are scratched during installation. Any scratches should be covered as soon as possible to prevent rust. See bollard care and maintenance for further details.
