How to Use Parking Lot Bollards, Barricades and Safety Barriers

Jenny Kleiner Bollards

Do you have parking lot barricades around the parking lot of your facility? If you do, are they giving you the protection you need? If not, here is a guide to finding the right parking lot bollards, as well as how and when to use parking lot protective barriers such as bollards for your facility.

What Are Parking Lot Bollards?

Parking lot bollards are protective parking lot security barriers that separate pedestrian areas from vehicle areas, as well as serving as protection for parking lot structures like toll booths and security stations.

You can also use parking bollards to prevent vehicles from accidentally infringing on entrances and sidewalks close to the parking lot.

Why Use Parking Lot Bollards?

There are many advantages to choosing parking lot bollards to protect your parking lot and your facility, including:

  • Visibility: Bollards are very easy to see, especially if you use lighted bollards or bollards with distinctive covers from Blockaides. This gives both pedestrians and drivers the opportunity to be more attentive to their surroundings and make sure they are in a safe lane where they will not collide with each other.
  • Access Control: Retractable bollards, also available from Blockaides, can help you control and direct both pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Keep only the bollards in place you need to direct traffic, and easily retract the ones you don’t. Raise and lower bollards as needed.
  • Facility Protection: Sturdy, secure bollards don’t just protect pedestrians and prevent vehicle collisions — they can also protect your facility. Strategically placed bollards around your entrance can prevent runaway vehicles from crashing into your building unfettered. They can even slow the progress of attempted burglaries.
