Impact protection holes are widely used in bollards along road sides parks and reserves to lessen the impact of a
vehicle collision. They are usually accompanied by delineators recessed 10mm into the bollards to prevent
vandalism. Red delineators on the approach side and white the opposite side.
Where scalloped edges are more for decorative purposes. Chamfering the edges of a bollard, also makes a bollard
more user friendly by alleviating sharp corners and splinters.
Bollard sleeves come in below ground and
collapsible bollards in above ground only.
In-ground sleeves are concreted 400mm into the ground.
The removable sleeve has a concrete strip around the top
to allow for a neat and flush finish. Collapsible bolt down
sleeves bolt flush to the surface.
Bollards are locked in place by use of the locking tag.
The tag is screwed into the bollard once the sleeve has been installed
and the correct height has been determined. Once the tag is in
place, the lid will close over the tag allowing a padlock to be
fitted. Collapsible sleeves have tags already fitted and when
upright, the tags will line up and allow you to fit a padlock .

size that’s not a stock item. All sleeves are hot dipped
