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 choices 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 position. These bollards tend to be used along 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 necessary. Even though these bollards and sleeves 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 steel for durability, weather-resistance, and aesthetics. Calpipe Security Bollards® offers standard Type 304 grade stainless-steel, or for harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless bollard is polished to your #4 finish.
Security bollards have long been used to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is this more apparent than on university campuses, in which the flux of foot traffic is frequently 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 popular 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 symptom in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards can 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 provided by Calpipe Security Bollards®™ are becoming more commonplace around university buildings, as they possibly can be lifted and dropped down with just a hand drill along with a bit. Twist-up bollards produce an affordable option given that they require hardly any maintenance and are ideal for remote areas on campuses where perimeters should be established.
The university utilization of bollards in congested areas, particularly when colleges are situated in urban settings such as downtown Atlanta (Georgia State University) or New York City (NYU) has allowed for campus designers to yguowg with new traffic patterns, utilizing bollards as a simple engineering tool to guard 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 use of certain areas. Retractable bollards, just like the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular options for campus integration as they are simple to remove and store if not needed, whilst not sacrificing reliability and safety. No matter what the design and safety requirements might be, there exists a bollard available to suit every need regardless of how specific.
