Retractable bollards are the technical variants of classic impact protection or collision protection. Among other things, they are used to regulate traffic and access to certain areas. These retractable bollards can be made of various materials such as stainless steel, aluminum or concrete and are often used in urban environments, shopping malls, residential areas and other public spaces. The main purpose of retractable bollards is to control vehicle traffic, prevent unwanted access and ensure the protection and safety of people or property.
Retractable bollards: how they work and areas of application
The way retractable bollards work is simple but effective. Retractable bollards can be operated either manually or automatically. Automatic models are usually controlled by electrical systems. An example of this is the electric bollard, which is driven by an electric motor. The electric bollard can be lowered automatically by pressing a switch or remote control. It can also be raised out of the ground or lowered back into the ground at the touch of a button.
The areas of application for retractable electric bollards are diverse. They offer a flexible solution for traffic control and allow access to certain areas to be quickly restricted or released as required. They also help to increase security by acting as a physical barrier against unauthorized access or potential threats. In urban areas in particular, they help to protect pedestrian areas and direct traffic.
