Removable bollards are an excellent way to protect property and assets from pedestrians, unauthorised vehicles, and “ram raid” style attacks, while still allowing easy access to authorised personnel. Removable bollards come in a range of styles, including both below ground and surface mount options, along with both padlock and registered security key locking options. Every factory, distribution centre, or industrial workplace should be protected with a removable bollard to ensure effective security and maintain easy access. For car garages, the roller-door model is a fantastic option, as it can be installed in front of the roller door to both deter a would-be thief as well as protecting the garage structure and cars inside.
Installation of a removable bollard will vary depending on what style of bollard is being installed and what surface it is being installed into. If you have an existing concrete slab either a ‘core drilled’ sleeve or a ‘surface mount shoe’ can be used. Asphalt, gravel, or installations direct into untouched ground will require a ‘new concrete’ sleeve. These installations both require a hole dug to the depth of each sleeve, and either filled with a two-part epoxy for the core drilled version or freshly poured concrete around the new concrete sleeve. A surface mount shoe can be installed on flat concrete surfaces with simple to use fixings.
There are a few things to consider when choosing the right bollard sleeve or footing for your needs. First, consider the environment and ground conditions where the bollard will be installed. If the area is subject to freezing temperatures, you will need a bollard sleeve that is designed to resist cracking and heaving. Second, think about the weight and size of the bollard. Heavier and larger bollards will require a larger base plate or concrete footing. Finally, consider the traffic conditions in the area. If the bollard will be subject to regular impact, you will need a bollard sleeve and footing that are designed to resist damage.
Car garage bollards and roller door bollards are effective theft prevention tools as they provide a physical barrier that vehicles cannot drive through. They are generally placed at the garage door, secured to the roller door with a key or padlock, and can be removed by the owner at will. This barrier can deter would-be thieves from attempting to break into a garage and driving off with a vehicle. Bollards can also be used to protect against ram-raiding, where a vehicle is driven into a garage door, or shopfront, in order to gain entry.
