The Benefits of Driveway Bollards

A bollard is an incredibly versatile piece of security equipment because it can be used in a variety of different locations. In fact, more and more residential homeowners are choosing to invest in a brand-new bollard for their driveway. Here at ABC Industrial, we stock a wide range of different bollards that are suitable for a variety of applications and in this blog, we have decided to go over some of the benefits that homeowners can obtain from an investment in driveway bollards. Read on to find out more...

Is it against the law to park on a stranger's driveway?

Contrary to belief, it is perfectly legal for a person to park their vehicle on a driveway that does not belong to them. In fact, the law becomes blurred in these situations which means that the police and local authorities may not be able to assist with the removal of the vehicle either. Plus, the homeowner affected by a situation like this may find themselves in trouble with the law if they try to remove the vehicle from their driveway using a tow truck. Luckily, driveway bollards can be installed in order to ensure that a drive remains clear for use by the rightful homeowner at all times.

Are driveway bollards an expensive investment?

The cost of a bollard depends on a variety of factors as there are a wide range of different styles available on the market. For example, bollards made from steel tend to be more expensive than aluminium bollards, however the latter tends to require more maintenance to keep it in tip top condition. In addition to this, bollards can be operated manually or automatically and these features can increase or decrease the cost of an investment considerably. With this said, the average driveway bollard is very cost-effective because they are easy to install, reducing costs substantially.

How long do driveway bollards last?

With the right care and attention to detail, a high-quality driveway bollard can last for around 30 years. After all, the metal materials that they are typically made from provide excellent weather resistance and routine maintenance will help ensure that the moving components that allow the bollard to manoeuvre up and down stay in tip top condition for many years of residential use. Here at ABC Industrial, we believe that residential homeowners should never sacrifice the security of their property in place of style. After all, driveway bollards ensure that other drivers do not park their vehicle on your property without permission and they are aesthetically designed in order to complement a home’s exterior effectively.
