Austral Precast can offer customised bollards designed to suit your project in addition to a collection of standard designs. Standard designs can be made and produced quickly and easily while customised options may require a longer lead time on delivery but, they offer the opportunity to create something truly unique.
Like all Austral Precast products we can alter the concrete mix used to suit requirements and regulations, and can also adjust existing designs to include design features like lights and other services that might need to be included in the bollard unit.
To discuss your needs with one our team please contact us for an obligation free consultation.
Bollards are not only a tool for defining boundaries, protecting buildings and infrastructure but are also an important part of road safety. By having correctly installed heavy duty bollards in the correct locations you can increase pedestrian and traffic safety while not impacting the visual appearance of your property.
Benefits of installing bollards.
Sometimes when parking is in short supply in a high traffic area, people resort to mounting the curb and parking on the verge or sidewalk. Bollards prevent vehicles from mounting curbs and help guide traffic flows.
Crowded street corners, poor traffic signals and unsafe crosswalks can all pose safety concerns for pedestrians. By installing bollards in areas with significant pedestrian and vehicular traffic it helps ensure the safety of pedestrians from being injured by any wayward vehicles.
An essential security device, bollards provide security from both accidental and intentional damage from vehicles. Any building or infrastructure that is at risk from the impact of a vehicle would have security greatly improved by the installation of bollards. Banks, schools, government offices, museums, military buildings and corner buildings all should consider the installation of bollards.
Bollards play an integral part in traffic management. From test channelling, traffic diversions, road closures and semi-closures; all require the use of bollards.
One of the most essential uses of bollard is to help alert drivers to narrow roads, high curbs, manage vehicle flow in high traffic roads and to prevent vehicles from mounting the sidewalk.
