Removable steel bollards
● They can be temporarily taken down to allow vehicular access to normally-restricted areas. They have a base that is permanently installed in the ground in which a bollard post can be inserted and locked in place. When desired, these bollards can be unlocked and pulled out allowing access for maintenance, delivery, or emergency vehicles.
● They also are an ideal solution for changing access applications and are generally more cost sensitive than retractable bollards. They are commonly installed at parks, in courtyards, alleyways, and other large venues like stadiums. These bollards are available in a wide variety of materials, ranging from steel to composite plastic. There are a variety of mounting options for removable bollards in either new or existing concrete.
Material of the Removable steel bollards : Steel
Steel is an iron alloy that is lighter and more impact resistant than cast or ductile iron. Structural grade steel is often used in security bollards, filled with concrete, but standard steel is also commonly used to create decorative bollards for standalone applications, or bollard covers in security bollard installations. Usually, steel bollards are machined from prefabricated materials, rather than cast. If steel is going to be exposed, it is usually powder coated to make it durable and protect against corrosion.
Removable steel bollard Finishes
Many installations choose to paint metal or wooden bollards to match the surrounding aesthetic and provide some level of weathering or corrosion protection. It is an inexpensive solution that gives the installer flexibility as to color and detail. However, paint does need attention to upkeep; scratches in the paint or wear from weather and chemicals can lead to oxidization of metal bollards.
For metal, a finish with greater durability is powder coating. In this process, a factory-applied powder coating is heat bonded to the metal. During coating, any bare metal attracts powder, eliminating even pinhole-sized breaks in coverage. Tough and abuse-resistant, in typical North American climates powder-coated bollards require little in terms of maintenance and deliver an exceptionally long service life.
Removable steel bollard’ s lock:
Internal Locking Removable Bollards actually lock underground. The key is a Cam lock that is placed waist high on the bollard for easy access. With a simple quarter turn, the bollard is released for easy removal. Internal Locking Removable Bollards are manufactured from carbon steel available in 200+ powder coat colors for the harsher environments.
