What Is a Retractable Bollard?
A retractable bollard can rise and retract as needed to provide more flexibility over permanent bollard installations. The bottom half of the bollard sits under the ground and is long enough to hold the length of the bollard once retracted. These retractable bollards are designed to be completely flat once retracted.
Retractable bollards can be manual or automatic. Manual bollards, such as this product, can be lowered by hand and offer simple installation. Automatic bollards can incorporate hydraulic technology and integrate into access control systems. Retractable bollards are best suited to multipurpose areas where blockade needs may change throughout the day.
Best Uses for a Retractable Bollard
With their flexibility and ease, retractable bollards have a place in many applications. Use our retractable bollards for:
- Controlled access: When you need controlled access to a location, our manual retractable bollards provide complete control. If you manage an area where only authorized vehicles are permitted, you can block off the region with ease and lower the bollards to allow vehicles to pass through as needed.
- Traffic separation: Our manual retractable bollards are excellent for separating traffic because they create a clear boundary for vehicles to abide by. On streets where traffic patterns change during set hours, you can retract the bollards to guide drivers. Stainless steel construction ensures these blockades are sturdy enough to withstand contact with a vehicle to prevent a larger accident.
- Pedestrian protection: In areas with heavy foot traffic, a line of bollards is excellent for separating the street from walking paths. The retracting feature makes these bollards ideal for main streets where festivals and events may happen throughout the year. When you block off the streets for these occasions, you can lower the bollards lining the pedestrian pathways to open up the space. You can even maintain a line of retracted bollards on the street to raise for these events.
