Removable Bollards

Removable 10 MPH lockable bollards offer piece of mind and functionality in protecting property and people. Bollards in this category have been tested for their ability to arrest a 5,000 lb. vehicle traveling at 10 MPH. To offer the customer flexibility in the installation process, these detachable bollard barriers have been tested in 3 different footings; shaft (or pier), slab (or shallow) and trench. Depending on site specific conditions each has its merits. Factors that can impact what footing is used include; whether or not the installation is a new building or a retrofit installation at an existing site, utility location and depth, soil conditions and other factors.
Removable crash tested bollards allow for removable when vehicle access is required. This makes it an ideal solution for street-scape projects and any other area where vehicle access is required but pedestrian protection is critical. Removable functionality also allows for removal and maintenance or easy replacement of bollard barrier posts. Maintenance is an important consideration when deciding between fixed bollard barriers and removable bollard barriers. Over time, posts will need maintenance to maintain their stopping power. This is particularly the case with carbon steel powder coated bollards. Being able to remove a bollard post is also ideal in the event that a bollard post is struck. In these instances, assuming the product was installed correctly, the detachable bollard post can simply be replaced with a new post as opposed to removing and re-installing the entire bollard system.
In some cases there may be a requirement for stainless steel in the bollard system. There are a number of reasons this may be beneficial for removable 10 MPH lockable bollards. First is the quality of a stainless steel look, or it may simply be the preference of the end user. In any case, stainless steel offers a more durable long term solution with less maintenance and a longer useable life span than carbon steel, particularly in a harsh or marine environments.
