Bollards are short vertical posts that serve a variety of safety related purposes in an industrial environment. They create partial barriers that protect people, supplies, and equipment from accidental impacts from forklifts and other large material handling tools.
Bollards actually originated as outdoor safety devices around shipping docks, and they can still be used both outdoors and indoors today. Many warehouses use them near delivery access points to prevent trucks from backing into doors and walls.
Remember Bollards are expensive and time consuming to take care of and maintain. Using plastic bollard covers will eliminate the yearly maintenance and cost.
