With a simple turn of a key, the bollard locks into its embedment sleeve and can just be taken off by unlocking the easily located, tamper-resistant lock. Two lid choices are provided to cover openings when bollards are removed: an attached lid that folds down to cover the opening or perhaps a removable lid that locks into place. These bollards are frequently used together with fixed bollards to assist create a flexible type of barrier system that will allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when needed. Although these removable bollards with locks are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless-steel Internal Locking Removable Bollard (SSR Series) – The SSR series of internal locking removable bollards are produced from stainless-steel for durability, weather-resistance, and aesthetics. Calpipe Security Bollards® offers standard Type 304 grade stainless steel, or perhaps for harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless steel bollard is polished to your #4 finish.
Security bollards have always been employed to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is that this more apparent than on university campuses, where the flux of foot traffic is often constant and vehicles must navigate through unique traffic patterns where interactions with pedestrians are unavoidable.
Bollards that may be quickly and inexpensively installed are always sought after on university campuses. Different construction (cast iron, stainless steel, steel/cast iron composite, recycled plastic, plastic covers) and design (fixed, telescoping, removable, collapsible, and collapsible/concealable) options enable campus architects to select the right bollard to resolve a certain symptom in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards may be installed around university events in order to control traffic around stadiums or conference halls. This can allow university officials to facilitate safe entrances and exits. Embedded and fixed bollards can be used to prohibit vehicle usage of private areas. New rotatable or “twist-up” designs like those available from Calpipe Security Bollards®™ are becoming more commonplace around university buildings, as they possibly can be lifted and dropped down with just a hand drill as well as a bit. Twist-up bollards offer an affordable option because they require little to no maintenance and are best for remote areas on campuses where perimeters has to be established.
The university usage of bollards in congested areas, specially when colleges can be found in urban settings such as downtown Atlanta (Georgia State University) or New York (NYU) has allowed for campus designers to yguowg with new traffic patterns, utilizing bollards being a simple engineering tool to safeguard pedestrians and cyclists from vehicles, and designate pedestrian areas by blocking vehicular access while allowing pedestrians and cyclists to get into freely between each bollard. Heavy, permanent bollards tend to be installed around crowded university buildings to limit vehicle congestion and restrict use of certain areas. Retractable bollards, such as the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular choices for campus integration since they are simple to remove and store or even needed, without sacrificing reliability and safety. Regardless of the design and safety requirements might be, there exists a bollard accessible to suit every need regardless how specific.
