With 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 options 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 in conjunction with fixed bollards to help create a flexible type of barrier system that will allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when needed. Despite the fact that these removable bollard sleeve are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless-steel Internal Locking Removable Bollard (SSR Series) – The SSR series 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 harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless bollard is polished to a #4 finish.
Security bollards have for ages been used to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is that 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 can be quickly and inexpensively installed are usually in demand on university campuses. Different construction (cast iron, stainless, 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 resolve a certain problem in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards may be installed around university events in order 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 use of private areas. New rotatable or “twist-up” designs like those available from Calpipe Security Bollards®™ have become more commonplace around university buildings, as they can be lifted and dropped down with only a hand drill and a bit. Twist-up bollards provide an affordable option since they require hardly any maintenance and are perfect for remote areas on campuses where perimeters has to be established.
The university usage of bollards in congested areas, specially when colleges are situated in urban settings like downtown Atlanta (Georgia State University) or New York (NYU) has allowed for campus designers to yguowg with new traffic patterns, utilizing bollards being a simple engineering tool to safeguard pedestrians and cyclists from vehicles, and designate pedestrian areas by blocking vehicular access while allowing pedestrians and cyclists to get in freely in between each bollard. Heavy, permanent bollards tend to be 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 because they are simple to remove and store or even needed, while not sacrificing reliability and safety. Regardless of the design and safety requirements could be, you will find a bollard offered to suit every need no matter how specific.
