Bollards are the small post we usually see on the street or security checkpoints; they are usually made from metals, plastics, concretes and other substances out there. Tisco Bollards has its feature as a short, thick post. They are physical safety barrier posts you normally notice the around storefronts, highways or roads, shopping malls, pedestrian walkway, car parking lots and even more. You most likely see them at security check post or drive through or in some cases a toll gate; they come in different colours but usually, the colours used comes as red, black, yellow, ash and stainless steels are more prominent. They are poles that keep you from getting too close to the drive-through window or prevent get away criminals running away from the authorities. They can also be barriers that prevent you from driving your vehicle onto a pedestrian walking path. Also, they are anti-car ram that prevents car owners from ramming into a building.
Most people that visit Shoprite in Nigeria, and go through the parking lot, you can always see it there as it’s the guard that keep drivers from veering into oncoming cars while exiting the parking lot.
Most of the bollards used do come in different types namely, removable bollards, fixed bollards, automatic bollards, semi-automatic bollards, manual retractable bollards.
The listed Bollards above generally fall into three types of which it’s used:
Decorative Bollards – decorative bollards as the name entails are used for decorating buildings and landscaping, and along with that providing security while guiding the walk path and traffic.
Traffic and Safety Bollards – These bollards are mainly used as an asset for pedestrian safety, as well as guiding the traffic direction, which prevents vehicles from straying out of the main road to the pedestrian walkway.
Security Bollards and Post Covers – Unlike decorative and traffic and safety bollards, these bollards are a highly impact-resistant bollard enhancement that prevents people who are trying to speed past a security post. They are used as security measures in these checkpoints.
Benefits of Bollards

Increases pedestrian safety on the walkways – it is said that you will be safe as a pedestrian if you use the pedestrian walkway, but in some cases, some cyclist do not adhere to the traffic rules and would want to use the sidewalk to avoid traffic or to move faster when they are in a haste, but with the help of these bollards, it will prevent them from accessing the walkways.
