A bollard is buried or anchored in concrete with heavy reinforcement, covered by a sleeve and protects against (unintentional) crashes of vehicles.

A bollard can easily enhance the visual environment when used as a complement to new or existing architecture, They automatically and unconsciously enhance the sense of security. In addition, a bollard can also be a perfect fit for traffic regulation where vehicle access is restricted for certain periods of time.

Bavak supplies and installs bollards in a wide range. There are fixed bollards which are placed in a row, there are galvanized bollards, sliding bollards, automatic bollards and special custom made decorative bollards. All types will be described in detail below.

Bollards - fixed

The fixed bollard is not movable or 'sinkable'. There are different types of fixed bollards available that can be delivered via Bavak. The purpose of use determines which type of bollard should be used. The choice for the right bollard depends on the required level of security. In addition, it is important to know that the appearance of these bollards can easily be adapted to your needs with a 'sleeve'. This means that the final color can be made exactly to meet your corporate identity. Also the shape of the bollard can be adjusted. This means that the bollards can fit exactly to your style or to the environment as conceived by an architect.

Then there are sliding, or retractable (automatic) bollards. These are two options for when a passage is needed to make an entrance or an exit. The customers' needs and the situation determine which bollard is best, the automatic or sideways movable bollards.

Bollards - automatic

When the automatic bollard is in the 'raised' or upright position, it is clearly visible and robust barrier. In the lowered position the bollard is completely flushed with the road surface. This allows unhindered passage for vehicles as by lowering, they are in no way an obstruction. When they are in the 'up position', they provide a clear perimeter demarcation that directs traffic. The 'sinking' and 'rising' is done in seconds. For this bollard an Emergency Fast Operate (EFO) is available as an extra option. This EFO may be needed to have the ability to speed up the emergency exit of secured posts.

In case a 'sinkable bollard' is impossible because of the underground structure and yet a non-permanent passage in deposition is necessary, Bavak offers another possibility with the sideways sliding bollards.

Bollards - sideways sliding

These bollards slide to the side so that a vehicle can pass through and slide back as soon as possible. By sliding aside, the bollards are fully visible during the entire process, which reduces the risk of damage. Furthermore, and this is the most important reason to choose for this type, no 'deep' foundation is required meaning it is possible to mount this solution in places where it is impossible to ‘dig deep’. For example in case where there are many cables in the infrastructure or exactly above a parking garage.

Bollards - decorative

These bollards can be adapted in case the (landscape) architect would require an aesthetic approach, Bavak can also perfectly meet this need. There are various options for special tailor-made bollards. These bollards make it possible to let the safety blend almost invisibly into the 'natural' environment. Take for example planters with one or two bollards (invisibly) integrated in them. It is also possible to combine the utmost safety with comfort. This can be done by placing a bench over bollards with a crash rating. By doing this the environment is secured without creating a feeling of insecurity.

Bollards - certifications

It is important to mention that all our bollards are certified and have different certifications. Which bollard suits best is depending on your needs. These certifications are; PAS68, ASTM2656, IWA-14-1, K4 - K8 - K12. These certifications are also applied to the galvanized and the sliding versions. As you can see, we deliver these exactly tailored to your needs.
