With a simple turn of a key, the bollard locks into its embedment sleeve and can just be removed by unlocking the easily located, tamper-resistant lock. Two lid options are provided to cover openings when bollards are removed: an attached lid that folds down to cover the opening or even a removable lid that locks in place. These bollards are often used along with fixed bollards to assist create a flexible type of barrier system that may allow large objects or vehicles to move through the passageway when necessary. Despite the fact that these removable lockable bollards are removable, their stopping strength remains superior.
Stainless-steel Internal Locking Removable Bollard (SSR Series) – The SSR combination of internal locking removable bollards are manufactured from stainless steel for durability, weather-resistance, and aesthetics. Calpipe Security Bollards® offers standard Type 304 grade stainless steel, or harsher environments, request Type 316. The stainless bollard is polished to some #4 finish.
Security bollards have long been used to direct or control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and nowhere is that this more apparent than on university campuses, where the flux of foot traffic is frequently constant and vehicles must navigate through unique traffic patterns where interactions with pedestrians are unavoidable.
Bollards that can be quickly and inexpensively installed are always sought after on university campuses. Different construction (cast iron, stainless, 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 resolve a certain problem in pedestrian and vehicle traffic areas.
Removable bollards can be installed around university events so that you can control traffic around stadiums or conference halls. This can allow university officials to facilitate safe entrances and exits. Embedded and fixed bollards can be used to prohibit vehicle access to private areas. New rotatable or “twist-up” designs like those available from Calpipe Security Bollards®™ have become more commonplace around university buildings, as they can be lifted and dropped down with only a hand drill and a bit. Twist-up bollards provide an affordable option given that they require virtually no maintenance and are ideal for remote areas on campuses where perimeters must be established.
The university use of bollards in congested areas, specifically when colleges are located in urban settings such as 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 guard pedestrians and cyclists from vehicles, and designate pedestrian areas by blocking vehicular access while allowing pedestrians and cyclists to get into freely in between each bollard. Heavy, permanent bollards are often installed around crowded university buildings to limit vehicle congestion and restrict use of certain areas. Retractable bollards, like the Twist-Up Bollard from Calpipe, are popular options for campus integration since they are easy to remove and store or even needed, while not sacrificing reliability and safety. No matter what the design and safety requirements may be, there is a bollard available to suit every need no matter how specific.
