Bollard 200 OD
Bollards are a low cost solution providing high impact absorption properties with little or no impact damage. They have an inbuilt impact absorption mechanism providing protection for what the bollard is installed to protect but also for the vehicle hitting it, reducing or removing the cost of damage repair bills. The bollards are 200mm in outside diameter and standard heights include 400mm, 750mm and 1200mm. Bespoke heights are possible to suit a particular application.
Applications and Benefits
Due to their strength and high visibility they are perfect for use in car parks, loading bays, at entrance and exit points and to signify designated road crossing points. Suitable for traffic segregation and they are ideal to integrate into other A-Safe barrier products especially at vulnerable points such as corners and at the ends of runs. They are used both internally and externally.
“They are tremendously effective in providing protected walkways for public safety. The reason we chose A-Safe bollards was because of price, ease of fitting and visibility & durability”

Health and Safety Did You Know
“Where vehicles reverse up to structures or edges (for example, loading, delivery or parking areas), barriers, buffers, bollards and wheel stops can be used to warn drivers that they need to stop. Even if a collision does happen, these measures can help prevent more serious injury or structural damage. They should be highly visible, and sensibly positioned. Flexible barriers may be an option and can prevent damage to vehicles.”
