Manually operated retractable bollards give you the flexibility to lock them in the upright position or conceal them in an in-ground casing when not in use. Also known as telescoping bollards, you can raise manual bollards into place quickly and easily. Common manual retractable bollard applications include traffic control, vehicle access control in parking lots and streets and restricting access to driveways. They also serve as protection for roll-up doors and retail storefronts to prevent thieves from ramming the door with a truck or other heavy vehicle.

Manual assisted bollards are a variation of the standard manual bollard that features an integrated lifting system, which makes the raising and lowering process much easier.

What Are the Benefits of Stainless Steel Bollards?
Stainless steel is one of the more popular materials used in the bollard manufacturing process. Although stainless steel usually includes a higher price point than other materials such as steel or aluminum, it can be more cost-effective over the long term. A stainless steel bollard offers superior resistance to corrosion, making it the ideal choice for outdoor use in wet or humid climates. Stainless steel is also easy to clean, which will help you maintain the bollard’s attractive appearance.
What’s more, a stainless steel bollard will resist heat and chemical damage and requires little preventive maintenance. The low ownership costs will allow you to receive an excellent return on your investment.
