With a simple turn of a key, the bollard locks into its embedment sleeve and can just be removed 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 even a removable lid that locks into place. These bollards tend to be used along with fixed bollards to aid create a flexible type of barrier system that will allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when necessary. Although these removable bollards with locks are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless Steel 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-steel, or harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless bollard is polished to some #4 finish.
Security bollards have always been employed to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is it more apparent than on university campuses, where flux of foot traffic is often constant and vehicles must travel through unique traffic patterns where interactions with pedestrians are unavoidable.
Bollards that may be quickly and inexpensively installed are always in demand 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 select the right bollard to resolve a particular symptom in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards could be installed around university events to be able to control traffic around stadiums or conference halls. This can 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 available from Calpipe Security Bollards®™ are becoming more commonplace around university buildings, because they can be lifted and dropped down with only a hand drill and a bit. Twist-up bollards offer an affordable option since they require virtually no maintenance and are best for remote areas on campuses where perimeters should be established.
The university usage of bollards in congested areas, specifically when colleges are situated in urban settings like downtown Atlanta (Georgia State University) or New York City (NYU) has allowed for campus designers to yguowg with new traffic patterns, utilizing bollards as being a simple engineering tool to safeguard 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 access to certain areas. Retractable bollards, like the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular choices for campus integration because they are simple to remove and store or even needed, without sacrificing reliability and safety. No matter what the design and safety requirements might be, you will find a bollard accessible to suit every need regardless how specific.
