Q – What finish should my retractable bollards have?

A – If your site is located within 7 miles of the coast, then stainless steel should be the finish you choose. The stainless steel is the only material that won’t be affected by the salt air. All other materials will rust and corrode in time.

If your site is located over 7 miles from the coast, then the choice of material is down to you. Galvanised steel offers a low maintenance solution as it doesn’t require any cleaning or upkeep.

How Do They Work?

Retractable bollards must be dug into the substrate as the body slides completely into the ground receiver when not in use. Therefore, in order to keep your retractable bollards in the best possible condition over a long period of time, prior planning and installation by a trained engineer is crucial.

Once your retractable bollard is installed, you should introduce a maintenance schedule to keep the product in the best possible condition. Over time, dust and debris can accumulate and will need proper cleaning in order to keep the bollard in working order. The bollards moving parts will also need to be removed and lubricated periodically.

The bollards themselves are manually lifted out of the ground when in use. When they are not required, they can simply be lowered back into the ground. When they are in the ground, they are safe to passing Vehicles and Pedestrians as there are no protruding parts.

Due to the nature of these retractable barriers, drainage is very important to ensure a long lifespan. If the barrier receiver fills with water, it can increase the wear on the bollard itself and the installation. Therefore, a prior consultation with an engineer will highlight the drainage process is crucial.
