With 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 given 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 together with fixed bollards to aid create a flexible type of barrier system that may allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when needed. Despite the fact that these removable stainless steel bollards are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless Internal Locking Removable Bollard (SSR Series) – The SSR number of internal locking removable bollards are manufactured from stainless for durability, weather-resistance, and aesthetics. Calpipe Security Bollards® offers standard Type 304 grade stainless-steel, or for harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless steel bollard is polished to some #4 finish.
Security bollards have for ages been used to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is this more apparent than on university campuses, in which the flux of foot traffic is often constant and vehicles must navigate through unique traffic patterns where interactions with pedestrians are unavoidable.
Bollards which can be quickly and inexpensively installed are always in demand 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 solve 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 can allow university officials to facilitate safe entrances and exits. Embedded and fixed bollards are often used to prohibit vehicle access to private areas. New rotatable or “twist-up” designs like those offered by Calpipe Security Bollards®™ are becoming more commonplace around university buildings, because they can be lifted and dropped down with just a hand drill as well as a bit. Twist-up bollards provide an affordable option since they require virtually no maintenance and are best for remote areas on campuses where perimeters should be established.
The university usage of bollards in congested areas, specifically when colleges are located in urban settings including downtown Atlanta (Georgia State University) or The Big Apple (NYU) has allowed for campus designers to yguowg with new traffic patterns, utilizing bollards as being a simple engineering tool to protect pedestrians and cyclists from vehicles, and designate pedestrian areas by blocking vehicular access while allowing pedestrians and cyclists to get into freely between each bollard. Heavy, permanent bollards are often installed around crowded university buildings to limit vehicle congestion and restrict usage of certain areas. Retractable bollards, just like the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular selections for campus integration as they are easy to remove and store if not needed, whilst not sacrificing reliability and safety. Regardless of the design and safety requirements might be, you will find a bollard offered to suit every need regardless how specific.
