What is a Bollard?

Posted by David DiAntonio on Oct 9, 2019 8:39:35 AM

A bollard is a strong, vertical post mounted in or in front of a parking lot, facility or storefront that acts as a safety barrier to protect pedestrians, property and products from vehicle-into-building crashes. 

Even if you’ve never heard of the word bollard, you’ve come across these structures before.  Originally, bollards were found on ships for the purpose of mooring boats.  Now, these sturdy and resistant devices are found everywhere.  Bollards are placed for protection on manufacturing floors, alongside roads and in front of stores and hospitals.  These structures serve to protect people and property from attacks perpetrated by cars, trucks and other large vehicles.  Bollards appear to be large poles mounted in the ground — but these structures aren’t just for decoration;  bollards are unique safety devices that exist to prevent personal and property damage, including injury and theft.
