You don’t have to travel far within cities to see stainless steel bollards – such is their versatility that they can be used for a variety of reasons. Compared to traditional concrete bollards they are stronger, more versatile, functional, and even more beautiful – yes, we did say beautiful! What’s more they fit effortlessly into the design of modern cities and infrastructures.
Huge advancements have been made in steel which means that nowadays architects are able to use bollards that can support massive weights, that can be retracted, and that can also be used for uniqe applications – that’s the beauty of steel.
Bollards these days are commonly used as stationary blockades which prevent cars from passing through a certain area. They’re also used in car parks and for directing traffic. The bollards can be placed close to each other so that people can get through but car’s can’t.
They’re even being used in Australian shopping malls to prevent people from taking their shopping trolleys out into the street. Using stainless steel bollards in this way is a far easier wy of enforcing this restrictment without shopping mall managers getting grief from customers.
That’s all well and good, but why use stainless steel bollards?
Temporary or permanent use
Not all bollards are permanent and in fact when there is a need for a temporary barricade then removable bollards are essential. Stainless steel bollards are lighter than concrete bollards without compromising on their level of sturdiness. They’re the ideal choice for events and scenarios where it’s necessary to direct crowds and keep them under control.
Let’s face it, concrete bollards aren’t exactly stylish. Stainless steel bollards, on the other hand, can be decorated to make them eye-catching while also being functional. They can also be used to jazz up buildings and landscapes. Let’s not forget, they’re also extremely resistant to wear and tear and corrosion.
Products which are manufactured from stainless steel are very versatile which means that they can be used for a wide range of applications. In this example, bollards can be retracted or folded over to suit styles which are more diverse.
These are just a few of the reasons that steel bollards are being widely used. For more information on other steel products or to run a project idea, give the experts at Metro Steel a call today on 07 3204 1000. If you can imagine it, then chances are that we can create it!
