Having a simple turn of a key, the bollard locks into its embedment sleeve and can just be removed by unlocking the conveniently 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 perhaps a removable lid that locks into place. These bollards are frequently used along with fixed bollards to assist create an adaptable barrier system that will allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when necessary. Despite the fact that these locking 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-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 bollard is polished to your #4 finish.
Security bollards have always been utilized to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is that this more apparent than on university campuses, where the flux of foot traffic is often constant and vehicles must travel through unique traffic patterns where interactions with pedestrians are unavoidable.
Bollards which can be quickly and inexpensively installed are usually 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 find the right bollard to fix a specific problem in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards can be installed around university events to be able to control traffic around stadiums or conference halls. This will allow university officials to facilitate safe entrances and exits. Embedded and fixed bollards can be used to prohibit vehicle usage of private areas. New rotatable or “twist-up” designs like those provided by Calpipe Security Bollards®™ are becoming more commonplace around university buildings, as they can be lifted and dropped down with just a hand drill as well as a bit. Twist-up bollards offer an affordable option given that they require virtually no maintenance and are ideal for remote areas on campuses where perimeters has to be established.
The university use of bollards in congested areas, specially when colleges can be found 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 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 in freely between each bollard. Heavy, permanent bollards are frequently installed around crowded university buildings to limit vehicle congestion and restrict usage of certain areas. Retractable bollards, such as the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular options for campus integration since they are simple to remove and store or even needed, without sacrificing reliability and safety. No matter what the design and safety requirements may be, there exists a bollard offered to suit every need regardless how specific.
