Having a simple turn of a key, the bollard locks into its embedment sleeve and can just be taken off by unlocking the conveniently located, tamper-resistant lock. Two lid options are given to cover openings when bollards are removed: an attached lid that folds down to cover the opening or even a removable lid that locks into place. These bollards are often used in conjunction with fixed bollards to help create a flexible type of barrier system that will allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when necessary. Although these removable bollards with locks are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless-steel Internal Locking Removable Bollard (SSR Series) – The SSR number 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 perhaps for harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless bollard is polished to your #4 finish.
Security bollards have always been utilized to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is this more apparent than on university campuses, where the flux of foot traffic is usually constant and vehicles must navigate through unique traffic patterns where interactions with pedestrians are unavoidable.
Bollards that can be quickly and inexpensively installed are usually popular 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 find the right bollard to solve a specific 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 may allow university officials to facilitate safe entrances and exits. Embedded and fixed bollards are often used to prohibit vehicle use of private areas. New rotatable or “twist-up” designs like those provided by 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 provide an affordable option because they require hardly any maintenance and are perfect for remote areas on campuses where perimeters has to be established.
The university usage of bollards in congested areas, specifically when colleges are located 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 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 between each bollard. Heavy, permanent bollards are often 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 as they are easy to remove and store otherwise needed, while not sacrificing reliability and safety. Whatever the design and safety requirements might be, there is a bollard offered to suit every need no matter how specific.
