    Guide to picking the right security bollards

    Here at Bollard Security, we’ve been supplying, installing and maintaining security solutions within the domestic, commercial and industrial sectors throughout the UK for over 15 years. In that time, we’ve answered a lot of questions from customers who aren’t quite sure what the process of purchasing security bollards entails. So, if you’re someone who thinks that the installation of an effective set of security bollards will greatly benefit your home or business but you’re not quite sure where to start, here are a few top tips to keep in mind.

    Figure out what kind of bollard would best suit you

    If you’re not familiar with security bollards (not many people are, don’t worry!) then it can be a bit of job to figure out exactly what kind of security bollard would best fit your needs. This is particularly true when you’re faced with such a wide selection like the one we offer here. So, here’s a quick breakdown of a few of our most popular variants:

    Telescopic bollards – our telescopic bollards have been awarded the Sold Secure and Secured by Design accreditations, attesting to the exceptional standard of security they provide. They’re used by customers throughout the UK in a variety of settings and environments, from preventing unauthorised parking in domestic driveways, to providing complete peace of mind on forecourts, car parks or shop fronts – the perfect choice if you’re looking to add driveway security to your home on a budget.

    Automatic bollards – our automatic bollards are manufactured to exceptional standards, designed with a focus on robust integrity and flawless aesthetics – making them a brilliant choice for commercial applications and public spaces. They can also be used to enhance safety in certain areas by restricting vehicle access, or keeping large crowds of pedestrians away from busy or potentially dangerous spaces (such as warehouses or loading bays).

    Removable lift out bollards – these offer excellent security for areas where the ground conditions may prevent deep excavations, or there’s insufficient room to dig a full depth foundation (for example, in areas with a high water table or shallow service cables). Each one is equipped with the attack-tested 10-pin push-button lock, as opposed to a regular padlock. That means they’re drill-proof, pick-proof and tamper proof. Unlike the telescopic bollards, removable bollards are removed from the socket when they’re not in use.

    How do you want your bollards to look?

    Here at Bollard Security, we know that our security bollards get used in a range of different environments to serve a variety of different purposes. Our driveway bollards can be purchased in a variety of different colours, so you can enjoy all the security benefits they provide, while ensuring they’re still in-keeping with the aesthetic of your property. Our standard galvanised finishes mean that no matter what the time of day, our bollards are sure to be seen by everybody, regardless of the colour.

    Keep them well maintained

    Our  bollards and parking posts are manufactured to quality standards demanded by BS EN ISO 9001:2000, and carry the “Secured by Design” crime prevention badge. Although they’re extremely sturdy pieces of kit, they may require a bit of upkeep every once in a while to ensure they’re still at their best. A faulty security bollard can leave your premises exposed to a variety of security threats like trespassing, arson, theft and in rare instances, terrorism, so it’s really important to make sure they’re kept in good condition.
