Using a simple turn of a key, the bollard locks into its embedment sleeve and can only be taken off by unlocking the easily located, tamper-resistant lock. Two lid options are presented to cover openings when bollards are removed: an attached lid that folds down to cover the opening or a removable lid that locks into place. These bollards are often used in conjunction with fixed bollards to help create an adaptable barrier system that may allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when needed. Although these removable lockable bollards are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless-steel Internal Locking Removable Bollard (SSR Series) – The SSR combination of internal locking removable bollards are manufactured from stainless-steel for durability, weather-resistance, and aesthetics. Calpipe Security Bollards® offers standard Type 304 grade stainless-steel, or harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless steel bollard is polished to some #4 finish.
Security bollards have long been used 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 usually constant and vehicles must travel through unique traffic patterns where interactions with pedestrians are unavoidable.
Bollards that may be quickly and inexpensively installed will always be 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 choose the right bollard to resolve a particular symptom in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards may be installed around university events so that you can control traffic around stadiums or conference halls. This may allow university officials to facilitate safe entrances and exits. Embedded and fixed bollards can be used to prohibit vehicle access to private areas. New rotatable or “twist-up” designs like those available from Calpipe Security Bollards®™ have grown to be more commonplace around university buildings, because they can be lifted and dropped down with only a hand drill and a bit. Twist-up bollards produce an affordable option since they require virtually no maintenance and are perfect for remote areas on campuses where perimeters has to be established.
The university utilization of bollards in congested areas, specially when colleges are located in urban settings such as downtown Atlanta (Georgia State University) or The Big Apple (NYU) has allowed for campus designers to yguowg with new traffic patterns, utilizing bollards as 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 in freely in between each bollard. Heavy, permanent bollards are frequently installed around crowded university buildings to limit vehicle congestion and restrict access to certain areas. Retractable bollards, just like the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular choices for campus integration because they are easy to remove and store or even needed, while not sacrificing reliability and safety. No matter what the design and safety requirements could be, there is a bollard available to suit every need no matter how specific.
