How to Know if Your Property Needs Security Bollards

Here are some things you should consider when deciding to purchase security bollards.

When it comes to security bollards, they are the best way to protect a property from an incoming vehicle. But if you’re wondering whether security bollards will be a good fit for your property, them that depends on a few factors. Here are some things you should consider when deciding to purchase security bollards.

Crime Level

First, you should think about how much crime occurs in your area. As you know, crime is a broad category, and the property damage involved can range from vandalism and theft to arson. So, look for a history of vehicle-related crimes, and you’ll know how high the threat is of a criminal using a car to attack your property. Security bollards not only block vehicles from crossing out of the road and into your property, but they also silently discourage potential intruders.

Nearest Roads

The next factor you could consider is how close your property is to the road. Naturally, the amount of traffic that passes your property will help determine whether you should invest in security bollards. The size of the road will also affect how much traffic comes by your property. If you’re off of the first exit from a major highway, then you’re exposed to a higher risk of vehicle crashes, accidental or otherwise.

K-Rating System

Lastly, if you have decided to shop for security bollards, then you should be made aware of how they are rated. The US department of state developed a system called K-rating, where each type of security bollard is tested for the highest impact they can withstand. It starts with K4 security bollards, which withstand a 30 mile per hour crash, and it goes up to K12, which can withstand a crash at 50 miles per hour.
