Bollards Can be an Integral Piece of a Well-Crafted Overall Security Plan
Bollards can be tremendously useful when they are deployed correctly as part of an overall safety plan. Understanding the features and benefits of the different types of bollards will make it easy to put them to use in the right spots. For starters, controlling traffic is something that bollards do very well. This is particularly true when talking about retractable bollards. Since retractable bollards can be raised and lowered as necessary, they can be used to stop traffic in some instances while allowing it through in others. That function alone makes these automatic bollards something for many commercial facilities to consider.
The security that bollards can offer is another important feature. Placing bollards in front of particularly sensitive areas of a building – or areas which can easily be accessed by vehicle – will immediately enhance security. And again, if those bollards can be raised and lowered automatically, they don’t have to be in the way when that security is not needed.
