Using a simple turn of a key, the bollard locks into its embedment sleeve and can only 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 a removable lid that locks into place. These bollards are frequently used along with fixed bollards to aid create an adaptable barrier system that will allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when needed. Despite the fact that these bollards and sleeves are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless Steel Internal Locking Removable Bollard (SSR Series) – The SSR combination 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-steel, or harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless-steel bollard is polished to some #4 finish.
Security bollards have for ages been utilized to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is this more apparent than on university campuses, where flux of foot traffic is frequently constant and vehicles must navigate through unique traffic patterns where interactions with pedestrians are unavoidable.
Bollards that may be quickly and inexpensively installed will always be 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 choose the right bollard to resolve a certain symptom in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards could be installed around university events in order to control traffic around stadiums or conference halls. This can allow university officials to facilitate safe entrances and exits. Embedded and fixed bollards can be used to prohibit vehicle access to private areas. New rotatable or “twist-up” designs like those provided by Calpipe Security Bollards®™ have become more commonplace around university buildings, because they can be lifted and dropped down with just a hand drill along with a bit. Twist-up bollards offer an affordable option given that they require little to no maintenance and are ideal for remote areas on campuses where perimeters must be established.
The university utilization of bollards in congested areas, specially when colleges are located in urban settings such as downtown Atlanta (Georgia State University) or The Big Apple (NYU) has allowed for campus designers to yguowg with new traffic patterns, utilizing bollards as a simple engineering tool to guard pedestrians and cyclists from vehicles, and designate pedestrian areas by blocking vehicular access while allowing pedestrians and cyclists to enter freely between each bollard. Heavy, permanent bollards tend to be installed around crowded university buildings to limit vehicle congestion and restrict access to certain areas. Retractable bollards, like the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular options for campus integration since they are easy to remove and store if not needed, while not sacrificing reliability and safety. Regardless of the design and safety requirements could be, there is a bollard accessible to suit every need regardless of how specific.
