Busting the Bollard Myths

Here at ABC Industrial, we pride ourselves on our impressive product range which allows us to assist our clients in a variety of industrial security solutions. In fact, one of our most popular products has got to be the bollard, a feature that is suitable for applications of any shape or size. Read on as the team here at ABC bust some of the biggest misconceptions about bollards once and for all… Myth: Bollards are expensive All of our bollards are priced subject to a site assessment. After all, there are a range of different variables that have to be taken into consideration in order to generate a final asking price. With this said, we like to believe that each bollard is considered an investment for the future due to the longevity guarantee that comes with them. As a result, they are quite the opposite of expensive because they will pay for themselves over a period of 10-30 years with the right maintenance. Myth: Bollards don’t have many uses From parking security to pedestrian safety, a bollard can be used for a wide range of applications which makes them an incredibly versatile piece of security. In fact, a bollard can even be designed subject to its intended use in order to make it suitable for use in a loading bay, car dealership or residential driveway. In addition to this, they can also be equipped with automation, known as telescopic bollards, which can make them the perfect way to ensure pedestrian security without affecting day to day industry operations. Myth: Bollards are an industrial eyesore Many people incorrectly believe that bollards can industrialise a design and affect the aesthetic value of a property. Whilst this may have been true once upon a time, the bollards of 2019 are incredibly versatile and are actually designed in order to compliment the décor of an area. For example, many bollards use contemporary features and lighting in order to enhance the aesthetic value of residential properties and city centres. This means that they are quite the opposite of the industrial eyesore that many people believe them to be. When it comes to bollards, the team here at ABC Industrial are the experts you want on your side! After all, there are many different things to take into consideration when it comes to an investment as important as a bollard, such as the application of use, the composition of the floor area and the style that best suits your requirements.
