At Bollard Security we take the security of your home seriously. All of our lockable products hold the Secured by Design accreditation.
Established in 1989, Secured by Design (SBD) is the title for a group of national police projects focusing on the design and security for new and refurbished homes, commercial premises and car parks as well as the acknowledgement of quality security products and crime prevention projects. It supports the principles of ‘designing out crime’ through physical security and processes.
Secured by Design works with the industry and test houses to create high level security standards, responding to trends in crime, and has given input on several key standards. The principles of the scheme have been proven to reduce the risk of crime and the fear of crime.
SECURED BY DESIGN: PRODUCT LICENSING SCHEME
Secured by Design member company status is awarded to companies producing security products that pass standards and tests nominated by the police service. The standards and related tests must demonstrate the product effectiveness in preventing or reducing crime, usually by resistance to physical attack.
SECURED BY DESIGN: FACTS & FIGURES
Secured by Design developments (those using products and materials that meet Secured by Design Standards) are up to 75% less likely to be burgled and show a reduction of 25% in criminal damage.
The additional cost of using Secured by Design standards in the average home is only around £170.
The Association of British Insurers has estimated that the introduction of Secured by Design standards across the UK would bring more than £3.2 billion worth of savings to the economy over 20 years.
Householders who aren’t offered security recommendations after a burglary are 69% more likely to suffer a repeat incident than those who are offered advice.
High crime is one reason why people move home. One survey noted that 5.3 million people said that concern about crime levels and a desire to move to a safer location was their main reason for moving home.
The London 2012 Olympic Park and the 2014 Commonwealth Games Village were both awarded full Secured by Design status.
A study of Glasgow Housing Association properties claimed that there had been a saving of £18,304 in the research area due (in some part at least) to the introduction of SBD.
SBD installation pays for itself in at the most 2 years in saved costs of crime with two alternative methods of measurement suggesting.
Our telescopic bollards have been awarded the Sold Secure Gold accreditation.
Sold Secure is dedicated to reducing the risk of crime by the assessment of security products. Established in 1992 by Northumbria and Essex Police with the help and backing of the Home Office. Sold Secure is now owned and administered by the Master Locksmiths Association and works from purpose built laboratories just outside Daventry.
The scheme has close ties with a number of constabularies and insurers who provide regular information regarding the methods of theft and the tools utilised by criminals in their areas. This helps to maintain up to date specifications and means security products can be assessed in the light of the risk they are likely to encounter when in use. Now products are tested by a highly motivated team of professional locksmiths under the direction of a small board of directors who meet on a regular basis to administer the scheme and move the process forward in keeping with modern theft methods.
Manufacturers and suppliers can apply to have their products approved by Sold Secure. Products which have been satisfactorily assessed may bear the Sold Secure Quality Mark. Information on these approved products is circulated by Sold Secure to crime prevention officers, insurance companies, the media, the Home Office and the public.
Sold Secure Approval is classified into 3 main categories; Bronze, Silver & Gold. The categories reflect the amount of time per test and the tools that are used and themselves vary depending on what test specification is being used. The higher the grading (Bronze is the lowest) the higher the security provided by the product.
Absolutely brilliant service provided by Bollard Security. We received a professional service with a good quality bollard that was fitted by professionals.

Chose Bollard Security to supply and fit a security post in our driveway after lengthy research. Decided and ordered the R5 model which was installed very professionally within a week. I am sure the post will now protect our vehicles for many years to come. Great service all round and highly recommend Richard and team if you need to do the same.

Cannot fault the whole experience from sales through to installation - a pleasant change in todays world.Special mention to the installation guys, (Joss & Ken), who worked harder than anyone we have witnessed in a long long time. Cheerful, professional and courteous throughout a long day. A credit to the company guys! The new bollards are a massive improvement on the poorly installed previous set that the guys had to remove. Delighted with the end result.

Absolutely brilliant company, and the service was second to none, from first enquiry to the actual fitting. The customer service was flawless, all our queries were answered and they advised us on where and how many bollards to install, with no pushy sales tactics and they catered to our exact needs. The fitters were professional, polite and very clean whilst completing the job and explained how to work the bollards. We would highly recommend and have so recommended this company to our friends and family over any other. Many thanks Bollard Security. Jag beghal.

Used this company for the 1st time after a neighbours recommendation and ordered three bollards. The guys from Bollard Security arrived on time and after a discussion about positioning and a cup of coffee completed the job quickly and professionally and cleaned the whole drive before leaving. The end result was better than I expected and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. I wish more businesses had this quality of work and professionalism, it’s a quality hard to find these days.Thanks you guys for a job well done.Dominic Littlewood

Brilliant, friendly and efficient team from start to finish! Highly recommend
13:45 15 Jun 20
i had contacted a couple of companies off the internet however wasn't very confident with them after an initial chat.I got Bollard Security details from someone in the neighbourhood who had used them and had no faults with their service.I found the service professional and straight forward from beginning to end from Craig in the office to Rob? and James? (i think were the fitters names) who fitted the bollards during the current pandemic being fully aware of and following social distancing as well as being polite and efficient.I would highly recommend this company.
15:51 14 Jun 20
Amazing service! Kept me informed all throughout the lockdown period. Best Bollard company around!
09:51 13 Jun 20
from an enquiry to having it installed , this company were 10/10 for helping me and advising me , was no pressure at all and kept me informed all the way until it were ready to install the guy celab who fitted it was very friendly helpful and very informative , highly recommend this company , thank you for your help
19:06 12 Jun 20
I only needed one bollards so thought my order may be too small to be of interest but Richard made a point of ensuring that everything met with full satisfaction. Very pleased with the service and with the quality of the work. Would be happy to recommend this company to others.
20:21 09 Jun 20
I had the pleasure of having the Bollard Security team over today to fit an S5 bollard onto my block driveway.They arrived on time and were at work within 5 mins of arriving. Throughout the guys were extremely courteous and worked cleanly. From start to finish the job took less than 2 hours and that was working in cotswold clay and stone ground by hand!The bollard itself is a serious piece of kit that works in a beautifully engineered action, leaving you in doubt that the bollard is up to the task of protection my pride and joy! That coupled with it being professionally installed simply reinforcing the reason why I A; chose the S5, but more importantly B; chose Bollard Security to install it!
13:32 08 Jun 20
Removed the old damaged bollard and installed a much better one in a couple of hours, very happy with the service!
17:34 03 Jun 20
This company provided everything I look for. Responded quickly to my enquiry, gave good advice to suit my needs and installation booked-in for the same day. The bollard was fitted in a professional and friendly manner, with great attention to detail. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.
08:10 30 May 20
We are very happy with the service received right from the initial web enquiry to the installation day. We had speedy and prompt response to enquiry and a quick installation booking. We were kept updated all the way along the process. On installation day everything went exactly to plan as advised and with minimal disruption - the installer was professional and friendly. Big thank you to Craig and the gentleman who installed our bollard - absolutely would recommend Bollard Security.
13:18 29 May 20
From initial contact via webchat to fitting I can only highly recommend this company. I initially made contact as the lock on my fitted post (different manufacturer) had broken in the upright position effectively trapping my cars on the driveway. Craig (webchat) was helpful late on a Saturday afternoon advising if my existing post was repairable which it wasn't. He even tried to see if he could get an installation arranged for the following Bank Holiday Monday which was not possible. Installation arranged for 8am on the following Thursday. Installer arrived at 8am on the dot and removal and installation of new (superior) post was completed by just after 10am. The installation was also made to a higher standard than the post being replaced. New post looks great and was at a very competitive price even with the installation costs. Again I would have no hesitation in recommending the company.
09:42 28 May 20
Very professional installer Caleb did a fantastic job from start to finish. Would definitely recommend this company and the lad that installed them.Craig Scott very knowledgable about is product’s and again very professional from start to finish.Thanks very much.Regards Steve w

Great Bollards - Installed quickly from time of order, arrived on time, completed work neatly & swiftly. 10/10...
13:44 23 Mar 20
I would highly recommend Bollard Security. From start to finish, they were all very helpful, polite,. diligent, professional and courteous. What more could you ask for! I can certainly sleep a lot better knowing ours cars are secure behind these high quality bollards.
20:37 15 Mar 20
Quotes were efficient, clear and online (perfect in this digital age). great price, great product and were able to install in a matter of days. Craig sorted a delivery issue out with no fuss and the lads that installed the bollards were polite and professional. Will definitely recommend them to friends and family.
20:06 15 Mar 20
Only leaving 5 stars as there aren't more available !! What a great service I received from Bollard Security. After initially making an enquiry about supply of a bollard and getting the best price I'd managed to find on the web, there were some issues with arranging a courier to deliver my bollard. I had a fitter arranged and due, but no bollard arriving. Richard called me the day before my fitting was due and said he would personally deliver my bollard to make sure I had it on time. Bearing in mind he is based in Yorkshire and I'm in Essex - that is what you call customer service ! Although the courier issues were no one's fault (there just weren't any available), Richard then offered to fit the bollard for me. He arrived on time and kept me updated on the way with arrival time. As for fitting, can't fault it at all. Neat and tidy. No mess/waste, in fact you'd never know he'd been !! Richard took me through how the bollard worked and how to get extra keys if needed. I cannot express how pleased I am with the work that's been done and the extent to which Richard has gone out of the way to deliver and fit a bollard for me. If you are looking for additional security on your property, seriously, Bollard Security should be on top of your list.
13:44 09 Mar 20
Hi CraigFrom first point of contact I couldn’t believe how helpful honest and easy to talk to you where so helpful you looked on google maps and as I have a wide driveway we decided I would send you a photo before deciding on what I neededYou even recommended to have at least one standard Bollard instead of having them all retractable telescopic ones to save on cost I went for the brushed steel effect./ gorgeousCaleb the fitter arrived 30 minutes early and he was an absolute gem he even double checked our car measurements and because we have an unusual driveway I opted for 4 instead of three Caleb was so easy to talk too explained everything and I cannot praise his workmanship enough / after fitting he not only explained everything how they work for example but refused to leave until I was happy driving on and off to make sure I was happy and could position my car correctly /. Afterwards I couldn’t see anything to clean up he left it cleaner than it was beforeI can’t fault this company from start to completion the bollards actually add something to our driveway the neighbours love them too / thank you guys Recommedation from us is 100%
11:42 01 Mar 20
Having had some initial problems with the company specifically the placement of the bollard and customer services I am pleased to say that the company have recognised this and reached out to me to reconcile things. We are currently in the process of coming to an agreement and I’m pleased to say things are looking good and I am happy with their after sales service so far.They seem to take a pride in their work and the happiness of their customers seems to be of paramount importance to them which is very good to see

After someone decided to run my folding post out of the ground I decided I probably needed something a bit more substantial. A quick google search lead me to Bollard Security where I enquired about a telescopic post via email. An hour later I had a phone call from a very helpful member of staff who kindly informed me i had inadvertently selected one of the most expensive posts - probably more security than I'd even need! These guys aren't in the business of ripping people off and their honesty and communication has been fantastic throughout the whole buying and installing process. The guys who came to fit it (only a few days after enquiring about the post) were professional and polite. Would highly recommend!Thanks guys!
15:54 17 Feb 20
Great communication though out quotation and install process plus after care..Fitter was on time and did a great job to a high quality...Very happy thanks...
11:57 17 Feb 20
Great service, great price, great product. recommend to anyone. Richard was great, smooth quick installation and talked me through everything.
20:00 16 Feb 20
Very professional, courteous and efficient service by Richard and Craig. Whole process was very easy and stress free. The bollards look really good in our car park, so I hope they stand the test of time.

I work for calderdale council and i sometimes bring my work van home but worried about the safty of the van on my drive .i gave bollard security a call and they came and showed me all the bollards they do and i must say they were verry fair prices so i went ahead and had 2x of the bollards that go in to the ground when not in use .they arrived on time when they stated they would and all the way through the installation of the bollards they kept me upto date on what they were doing and they were very tidy and put my drive back to a high standard once they had finished ..would highly recommend them ..fantastic service and products ..verry friendly company from start to finish...
16:59 10 Feb 20

Professional, courteous, trustworthy and generally an all-round friendly company to deal with. Made an enquiry on their website for a security post to be fitted on my driveway, got a call the next day to discuss further, had a good chat about my particular application needs and options and an engineer was booked to come the following week. The guy fitting it was on time, professional, courteous and FAST - done and dusted within a couple of hours. I would not hesitate in recommending this company to handle any of your bollard security needs. Thanks! (Excuse the terrible driveway photos, it's getting resurfaced soon! The job bollard security did looks extremely neat and tidy).
13:02 20 Dec 19
The experience was first class from the initial booking, through to the final installation. Bollard Security were able to fit within 3 days and the installation was carried out quickly and very professionally. I would definitely recommend,
09:07 11 Dec 19
