Security bollards are perhaps one of the more robust and flexible access control security solutions available on the market. Despite this, many businesses often think of security bollards as an afterthought when choosing which security solutions to use.
Bollards can be a highly effective form of access control security, ideal for a range of businesses across numerous sectors and, as long as they are correctly maintained, can last for a number of years making them as effective as traditional security gates and barriers.
Why should security bollards be used?
The main reason to install security bollards at your business premises is to improve the overall physical security. However, security bollards have a range of additional benefits aside from helping boost the overall security of your premises.
Access Restriction – correctly placed security bollards are an effective method of restricting vehicular access to your site and can help protect your business from potential theft or vandalism.
Visitor Management – automatic security bollards are ideal for controlling traffic in and out of your premises and are an effective alternative to fixed security solutions making them ideal for busier premises.
Aesthetics – bespoke security bollards can be designed to blend in with their surroundings, making them feel less intrusive whilst maintaining the security of your premises.
Pedestrian Protection – as long as security bollards are strategically placed, they are ideal for protecting pedestrians and employees from vehicles when they are walking around your site, particularly during busier hours.
