What are the benefits of installing a bollard?
The bollard is the UKs most popular and effective way in ensuring access control: from preventing cars impeding onto pedestrian areas to assisting in theft prevention from home and workplace. PITTMAN work with professional manufacturers in UK and Europe ensuring the best quality, speedy delivery and highly competitive prices. Depending on the type of bollard you wish to install you can use them to block traffic from entering an area on a permanent or temporary basis, protect nearby assets, highlight nearby infratstructure, deter theft of vehicles and even provide a professional finish to a premises.
What kind of bollard do I need?
Flexible Bollards: also known as impact recovery bollards, instantly pop back into shape and position following an impact from a car – perfect for delineation of traffic lanes, preventing unauthorised parking or highlighting a hazard. Remember damage is greatly reduced to both the car and the bollard due to the flexible material. Best-seller: Flexbrite Flexible Bollard 1000mm
Fold-Down Parking Posts: come fitted with a hinge at the base, allowing the bollard to fold flat to the ground, allowing temporary access, until the bollard is locked once again in the upright position. These fold-down posts are perfect for protecting a car park space, restricting access (e.g. only the delivery driver has the key) or even for theft prevention. However remember when the bollard is in the down position, it is lying flat on the ground – will this present a trip hazard if left down for prolonged amounts of time in a pedestrianised area?

Removable Bollards: can reduce the trip hazard highlighted above as when access is needed for the area, the bollard is removed and not left in the “down” / flat position, but rather put to one side. Again these removable bollards are widely used for access control on both temporary and permanent basis. Best-seller: Autobahn Removable Steel Post
Retractable Bollards: these bollards typically sink into ground remaining flush with the surface when access is required – they offer the ultimate convenience: no trip hazard as with the fold-down and no “where do I store when not in use” challenge of the removable bollard. The one potential downside is that there will almost certainly be a lot more excavation associated with installation of a retractable bollard…. Maybe not a big problem if you are installing a new yard. Best-seller: BudgetBollard Anti Ram Retractable Security Post
Fixed Bollards: really just do what they say on the tin. These are bollards that will be left permanently in place by either fixing with bolts, or concreting in. Fixed bollards are the solution to separating cars from pedestrian areas or providing an anti-ram deterrent on a forecourt or retail development. Best-seller: Street Stainless Steel Fixed Post
