Parking Lot Bollards
Pipe bollards are created to protect buildings, pedestrians, and equipment from vehicles and forklift collisions. These are used in various pedestrian-friendly settings like storefronts, parking lots, sidewalks, machinery protection, or any traffic-sensitive area.
Pipe bollards are the most commonly used bollards in parking lots and around buildings as well. They are usually fixed in a concrete substrate and also filled with concrete to provide resistance from the impact if any vehicle bumps into them. These bollards are used to guide the traffic and protect pedestrians and property from any car. Many bollards even help to control the speed of vehicles.
The steel pipe bollards are simple to look at however they can be painted or covered with a plastic post to enhance the visibility. Steel pipe bollards can be used in places where the vehicle encroachment can pose a considerable threat to the people present in the nearby areas.
The bollards enhance slower and more attentive driving in parking lots. There are various sizes, styles, and colors available to complement the area where you want to place them. Bollards with reflective strips are also used to gain the attention of the drivers who enter a parking lot.
Bollards are a parking lot accessory that ensures the security of vehicles. Their installation provides that the parking lot owner has taken a step to make sure the cars entering the lot are safe. You can use rigid bollards, retractable bollards, and flexible bollards in the parking lot depending on your needs. The choice of the bollard relies on your location, budget, current needs, and local conditions. As mentioned earlier, the purpose of a bollard is to ensure parking lot safety, so there are some bollards that are necessary for any property where drivers park their cars.
When placing bollards, you should be aware of the goals you want to achieve with them, i.e., the entrance of unwanted traffic in a particular area. However, placing them too close will also create a problem of their own.
If bollards are designed to regulate the traffic, they should be placed at least 3 feet apart from each other. In parking lots with disabled parking, they should be at least 5 feet apart but no more than that. You must always keep bollards on the corners of stands, racks, and columns to avoid any accidental damage to your property. When placing them, you should also keep in mind the emergency vehicles, because in the case of an emergency, these are used by police, fire department or ambulances. While bollards are essential to protect individuals and property from accidents, their wrong placement can also cause damage to vehicles.
