With the weather cooling down and outdoor maintenance wrapping up for the year we thought it was the perfect time to point out that our bollard covers, as well as a variety of our other products, can be just as useful inside as they are outside.
Bollards and bollard covers are a great way to protect your building from vehicle impacts, restrict access to specified areas, and create safe pedestrian walkways. But, did you also know that they are a useful addition to interior spaces as well. Steel bollards are an easy and effective way to protect utilities, power supplies, and building supports inside your warehouse space. Adding brightly colored covers, like our federal yellow or bright green, ensure the machine operators can easily spot the bollards and avoid dangerous areas.
Perhaps the idea of coring your concrete floor to install new bollards has been deterring you from adding them to your safety measures. Surface mount bollards can provide many of the same safety benefits with less disruption to your facility during installation. They can be quickly installed with breakaway bolts and are still able to be fitted with our 4” x 52” Bollardgard to provide increased visibility.
While many areas of your warehouse may benefit from fixed bollards some may be better suited to fold-down options. The use of fold down or removable bollards facilitates the movement of larger than usual loads and the reconfiguration of your warehouse while still providing visual separation of space.
The addition of bollards, whether embedded, surface mount, fixed, or removable, is an excellent way to improve the safety of your warehouse this winter! Give us a call and let’s work together to create a bollard and warehouse safety plan for your building!
