How Security Bollards Protect Your Property

Here is some more information about how security bollards help to protect your property.

An important aspect of perimeter protection that you should not overlook for your business is road access. If your property has a driveway, walkway, or parking area, then you should consider adding security bollards. Here is some more information about how security bollards help to protect your property.

High-Risk Facilities

Security bollards are ideal for protecting high-risk facilities that could be targeted for attack by vehicle. The first question you should ask is you are considering security bollards is whether your property falls into this category. Typically a place like a prison or a government facility would need added protection against potential terrorists. Security bollards are set into the ground at the right height to help block vehicles from entering. Even if you don’t have a high-risk facility, you still could include security bollards to protect pedestrians from car accidents.

Crash Ratings

The most important factor in creating security bollards is the strength at which they can withstand impact from a car. This crash rating is typically measured by the K-rating system, which you can find more about here. Security bollards can hold up against impacts of upwards of fifty miles per hour. The crash rating system is helpful because you can decide whether you need low-impact security bollards just as for marking off a restricted area, such as in a parking garage, or if you need to prepare for the possibility of a direct impact.

Traffic Flow

Knowing what type of traffic you have around your property will also determine whether you need security bollards. High-traffic areas, such as a medical facility, have a lot of interaction between cars and pedestrians in the same place, so security bollards can prevent a car from going the wrong way. Or if your property is by a busy road, then you might need retractable security bollards to protect your entrance.
