Protective Bollards: Steel Pipe Security for Building Perimeters



Steel pipe bollards are available in different sizes

Steel pipe bollards offer physical protection for buildings and pedestrians. In our society, vehicles piloted by distracted drivers speed through roadways, neighborhoods and parking lots, often barely missing cars, buildings and equally distracted pedestrians. One misstep can result in tragedy. Responsible government officials, facility administrators and store owners can help minimize risk in neighborhoods and communities. Protective bollards can be an excellent means to reducing potential hazards—by offering strong visual cues and physical protection. But, before getting into possible solutions, let’s look at some of the challenges.

Cars crashing into buildings is a surprisingly common occurrence, and these types of crashes cause 10 serious injuries each day in the United States, according to Rob Reiter, a storefront safety expert and one of the founders of the Storefront Safety Council. Cars crash into grocery stores, gas stations, homes, hospitals and about any kind of building you can imagine.

Here are just some places where bollard posts are used:

  • Pedestrian areas
  • Office buildings
  • Retail storefronts
  • Parking lots, indoor and outdoor
  • Commercial driveways
  • Industrial sites

  • Stadium grounds
  • Hospitals entryways
  • Drive-throughs
  • Gas stations
  • Construction sites
  • Toll booths
  • Outdoor service facilities, such as ATM stands or ticket booths
