Steel Bollards – Are They Right For Your Property?

Steel Bollards from Dawn Enterprises


How Are Steel Bollards Used?

Steel bollards, as well as concrete, are commonly placed on properties along the perimeter and at building entrances. Their purpose is to help safeguard property and individuals onsite. Steel security bollards are commonly used at banks and military bases, as well as schools, shopping malls, apartment complexes and other types of commercial and retail locations.

Pedestrian safety:

Bollards prevent vehicle access while allowing pedestrian flow. Install steel pipe bollards near building entrances and other areas to regulate foot traffic.

Building protection:

Damage to buildings can be costly or irreparable. Steel Bollards can provide standoff protection for sensitive areas and ensure intruding vehicles are kept away for building exteriors and other high risk locations.

Perimeter security:

Security steel bollards prevent accidents and intentiona burglaries—where vehicles are used to crash through storefront entrances or windows. High-security areas often feature steel pipe bollards at sensitive access points to prevent unwanted entry.
