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 options 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 are frequently used along with fixed bollards to aid create an adaptable barrier system that can allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when necessary. Even though these removable bollard are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless Internal Locking Removable Bollard (SSR Series) – The SSR combination of internal locking removable bollards are produced 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 a #4 finish.
Security bollards have always been utilized 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 which can be quickly and inexpensively installed are always 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 solve a specific symptom in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards can 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 are often used to prohibit vehicle use of private areas. New rotatable or “twist-up” designs like those provided by Calpipe Security Bollards®™ have become more commonplace around university buildings, as they possibly can be lifted and dropped down with just a hand drill and a bit. Twist-up bollards provide an affordable option because they require hardly any maintenance and are best for remote areas on campuses where perimeters must be established.
The university utilization of bollards in congested areas, specially when colleges can be found in urban settings like downtown Atlanta (Georgia State University) or New York (NYU) has allowed for campus designers to yguowg with new traffic patterns, utilizing bollards 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 enter freely in between each bollard. Heavy, permanent bollards tend to be installed around crowded university buildings to limit vehicle congestion and restrict usage of certain areas. Retractable bollards, like the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular selections for campus integration as they are simple to remove and store or even needed, while not sacrificing reliability and safety. No matter what the design and safety requirements may be, you will find a bollard accessible to suit every need no matter how specific.
