Bollard Care & Maintenance Tips
- Average Environmental Conditions: Regular inspections and cleanings are sufficient for most installation areas. Simply clean monthly or as-needed based on your specific installation site.
- Extreme Environmental Conditions:If installed near the coastline (in areas prone to saltwater spray) or in northern latitudes (where salt is used regularly for snow removal), more routine inspections and maintenance steps need to be carried out. The salt and moisture in the air of such regions can create a damaging buildup of salt on the Bollards. This damaging build-up may require monthly inspections of all Bollards to detect and subsequently remove the harmful residue.
Type of Cleaning
- A Light Cleansing: For light cleaning, rinse with water. Air dry or wipe dry with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. Should dirt, from the environment, build-up on this surface, rinse the surface with clean water from top to bottom, then use a soft cloth or sponge to clean with mild soap & water. Immediately rinse with clean water. It is very important that cleaning solution does not dry on the surface. Air dry or wipe dry with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
- For Stubborn Debris: For stubborn debris, repeat steps above until clean.
For Optimal Cleaning
- It is not recommended to clean Bollard surfaces in direct sunlight, or when temperatures are too hot or too cold.
- Abrasive cleaners, brushes and steel wool should be avoided as they may scratch the Bollard.
- Avoid excessive rubbing or over-cleaning.
