Using 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 presented 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 frequently used along with fixed bollards to help create a flexible type of barrier system that may allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when needed. Although these removable bollard sleeve are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless Steel Internal Locking Removable Bollard (SSR Series) – The SSR combination 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, or for harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless-steel bollard is polished to some #4 finish.
Security bollards have always been used to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is it more apparent than on university campuses, in which the flux of foot traffic is often constant and vehicles must travel 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 fix a specific problem in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards could be installed around university events to be able 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 offered by Calpipe Security Bollards®™ are becoming more commonplace around university buildings, as they can be lifted and dropped down with just a hand drill and a bit. Twist-up bollards produce an affordable option given that they require hardly any maintenance and are best for remote areas on campuses where perimeters should be established.
The university use of bollards in congested areas, particularly 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 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 enter freely in 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, just like the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular selections for campus integration because they are easy to remove and store or even needed, while not sacrificing reliability and safety. Regardless of the design and safety requirements could be, there is a bollard available to suit every need regardless of how specific.
