Bollards for driveway security: preventing vehicle intrusions
There’s an excellent reason why bollards are such hugely popular security solutions for homes and businesses nationwide – they’re one of the single most effective measures for preventing vehicle intrusions onto your property – whether you’re a private homeowner or commercial business. They can be used for a variety of specific applications, whether they’re protecting the security of your property, or simply your privacy (especially if you’re based on a major thoroughfare, or local attraction). Here’s a bit more on exactly how they can do that!
Naturally, one of the main reasons why so many buyers are attracted to parking post, telescopic bollards and similar driveway bollards is because of the security they provide. Parking posts, for example, are particularly effective at preventing your cars or fleet vehicles from theft – even if someone were able to gain access to your property, they’re designed to be exceptionally difficult to remove.
Not only that, but it’s essentially impossible to do so discreetly – which means that anyone faced with a parking post opens themselves up to a significant amount of risk due to the amount of attention it may draw. All of that makes parking posts a valuable deterrent in and of themselves.
What’s more, if you own a business, then the general expectation is that it’s likely to be subject to especially heavy surveillance, even if not all of those measures are immediately obvious. That, combined with the bollards themselves, is often more than sufficient to discourage opportunists (which the vast majority of potential intruders are).
Like all the best security measures, bollards are also simple and obvious. That means they’re highly cost-effective, providing excellent security value for minimal investment. There’s no complicated setup process, or concerns over ongoing reliability, and no chance they’ll be compromised or short-circuited. Simply install them and forget them – all the while enjoying total peace of mind.
Protecting your privacy
Security is always a major universal concern, but privacy is a very close second – especially if you live on a major local thoroughfare or local attraction (whether that’s a site of historical interest, or just your local high street). Parking posts and similar bollards can be a highly worthwhile solution if you often find yourself irritated by people using your land for free parking – or sometimes even more egregiously, actually blocking you in. Even something as simple as someone else using the space to turn around can be frustrating in itself, especially if it prevents you from going about your daily life.
Annoyingly, the law is quite fuzzy on the ability of landowners to get cars removed from private property. In most cases, it’ll be classed simply as trespassing, which is a relatively minor issue that means the police will often be reluctant to get involved.
Therefore, your best bet is probably to simply prevent authorised persons from parking there in the first place. That’s where bollards often come in handy – allowing you to maintain full control and ownership over your land, so that you can come and go as you please, and reserve the area for people you actually want to visit (such as friends and family members, rather than random people off the street).
