Having a simple turn of a key, the bollard locks into its embedment sleeve and can just be taken off 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 assist create an adaptable barrier system that can allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when needed. Even though these removable bollard sleeve are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless 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, or harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless-steel bollard is polished to some #4 finish.
Security bollards have for ages been employed to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is this more apparent than on university campuses, where flux of foot traffic is often constant and vehicles must navigate through unique traffic patterns where interactions with pedestrians are unavoidable.
Bollards which can be quickly and inexpensively installed will always be sought after 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 fix a particular problem in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards can be installed around university events so that you can control traffic around stadiums or conference halls. This can allow university officials to facilitate safe entrances and exits. Embedded and fixed bollards are often used to prohibit vehicle access to private areas. New rotatable or “twist-up” designs like those offered by Calpipe Security Bollards®™ have become more commonplace around university buildings, as they can be lifted and dropped down with only a hand drill along with a bit. Twist-up bollards produce an affordable option since they require virtually no maintenance and are best for remote areas on campuses where perimeters should be established.
The university use of bollards in congested areas, specifically when colleges are located in urban settings including downtown Atlanta (Georgia State University) or New York (NYU) has allowed for campus designers to yguowg with new traffic patterns, utilizing bollards as being a simple engineering tool to protect pedestrians and cyclists from vehicles, and designate pedestrian areas by blocking vehicular access while allowing pedestrians and cyclists to get into freely in between each bollard. Heavy, permanent bollards tend to be installed around crowded university buildings to limit vehicle congestion and restrict use of certain areas. Retractable bollards, just like the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular selections for campus integration as they are simple to remove and store if not needed, whilst not sacrificing reliability and safety. Whatever the design and safety requirements might be, you will find a bollard available to suit every need regardless how specific.
