Steel pipe bollards protect buildings, pedestrians and sensitive areas from vehicle collisions. Cover bollards with plastic or metal sleeves to increase visibility and aesthetics—and to protect from corrosion and weathering. Read more about steel pipe bollards.
Steel pipe protection
Steel pipe bollards protect buildings and pedestrians against vehicle impacts—making them ideal for parking lots, sidewalks, roadsides and other traffic-sensitive areas.
Pedestrian safety: Bollards prevent vehicle access while allowing unobstructed pedestrian flow. Install steel pipe bollards near building entrances and other areas with regular foot traffic.
Building protection: Create standoff protection for buildings and other sensitive areas. Depending on the building or structure, damage can be costly or even irreparable. Security bollards ensure intruding vehicles are kept away from building exteriors—and other high-risk locations.
Perimeter security: Security bollards prevent smash-and-grab, or ram-raid, burglaries—where vehicles are used to crash through storefront entrances or windows. High-security areas often feature steel pipe bollards at sensitive access points or fence gaps.
Security bollards are made from ASTM 500 B structural grade steel to withstand significant shocks. Install bollards in new concrete surfaces. Deep embedment and concrete reinforcement ensure maximum protection.
Note: Several installation factors will affect the protective capacity of steel pipe bollards. Bollard dimensions, installation materials and surrounding site conditions affect the amount of force a bollard can withstand. Consult an engineer to identify suitability and installation requirements for specific site applications.
All steel pipe bollards are available in 7-foot lengths. Upon request, Reliance Foundry will cut pipe bollards to specified dimensions.
Standard primer and cover compatibility
Steel pipe bollards ship with a standard primer coating. Steel surfaces should be painted regularly or concealed with an appropriate bollard cover. Covers are available in many sizes to fit any steel pipe dimension. Use covers to enhance local building and landscape aesthetics or to increase visibility for drivers.
Stainless steel covers
Steel pipe bollards can be capped to create clean and consistent finishes. Avoid messy or un-finished alternatives and ensure smooth profiles. Bollard caps save time and labor costs, while preventing patchy and uneven hand-formed peaks. Concrete caps are made from 5,000 psi concrete reinforced with microfibers to create wear-resistant finishes.
