Reasons to Use Bollards

Although they can be found in every city centre and are becoming more and more frequent in residential security, most people tend to underestimate the importance of the bollard. After all, there are a variety of different types on the market which are designed with both businesses and homeowners in mind. Read on as the team here at ABC Industrial go over a few reasons why you should consider using bollards...

Traffic Control

The bollard was first implemented in order to control traffic which is why they are often found in busy city centres. After all, they cannot be overwhelmed by the power of a vehicle and they are often tightly aligned so that even the smallest cars cannot squeeze through them. As a result, they help prevent cars from entering pedestrian only zones or parking on particular roads because they simply cannot access them.


Following on from the idea of pedestrian-only zones, bollards have also become an effective safety solution too. After all, many attacks over recent years have involved high-speed vehicles mounting the curb in order to intentionally harm people and thus, a lack of bollards puts pedestrians at risk. By using bollards to control traffic, city centres also promote the safety of pedestrians too.


Although it isn’t the original intention, many bollards are now designed with aesthetics in mind which is why they have become a big hit with homeowners. After all, home design plays a big role in the features we choose to install on the exterior of our property and high-quality bollards with a style and choice to offer people the ability to promote security and safety without compromising on visuals. Whether you are looking to prevent people from parking on your driveway illegally or need an effective pedestrian security solution, a high-quality bollard gets the job done. After all, they are crafted from incredibly strong materials like concrete and steel which means that they cannot be overpowered by the strength of a vehicle. Here at ABC Industrial, we are proud to offer a variety of different bollards, including telescopic designs. To find out more information, get in contact with a member of the team today!
