At Rolling Center, we offer BFT bollards. If you’re unsure what a bollard is, read on!
What is a Bollard?
A bollard is a short post used to create a protective perimeter near a building. When the bollard has been installed, it acts as a visual guide for traffic and marking boundaries. They also act as architectural elements to accentuate or visually stand out in different settings.
Bollards can also be used to physically block vehicle incursion while protecting people and property. These posts may be decorative or be made to complement an environment or landscaping; however, their primary function is to provide resistance to impact forces.
The term “bollard” first appeared in the Oxford English Dictionary in 1844. The definition described a post used to attach a ship’s mooring line. While the word “bollard” is fairly new, bollards have been in use for thousands of years. Some of the oldest bollards found to date from the Roman Empire were made from carved stone. They were used for tethering horses in front of buildings and as milestones along the sides of roads.
The Benefits of Bollards
Bollards are a great means to protect your home and business. They can prevent unauthorised vehicles from entering areas you’d rather keep safe for your family or employees.
Bollards also act as a barrier to keep drivers off your property and cause them to slow down or stop in specific areas. Pedestrians and buildings are much safer from careless drivers.
Bollards can also improve the aesthetics of your residential or commercial property.
