How Are Bollards Installed?

Bollards are a common sight in every street, and if you are thinking about installing some around your commercial property, then you may want to know more about the installation process. For property owners looking at bollards in Brisbane or surrounding areas, BSP Australia can offer you some good advice about what we do to install bollards, and what you can do to make sure that you get yours fitted correctly so that they last a long time. 


Inspecting The Placement

To make sure that your bollards are installed correctly, you need to make sure that the placement is correct. You need to think about what your aim is. Perhaps to stop people driving over the edge of your property, or to prevent them from parking in your spaces. 


What Are You Protecting?

Next, you should look at what you intend to protect with the bollards, whether it is your part of the pavement, an empty space by your shop, or a spot near to your home. If you want to use these spaces from time to time, removable bollards might be best. However, for a long-term resolution, BSP Australia would recommend that you choose fixed bollards which are embedded into concrete.


Fitting Fixed Bollards

To make the most out of your bollards, you need to firstly clear a space around the area where the bollard will go. Unlike retractable bollards, you won't have to make a hole in the ground. Instead, the fixed posts can be installed straight onto your surface. However, unless it is fitted correctly, it might be vulnerable to tampering. 


Fitting On Uneven Ground

The worst problem comes when BSP Australia fit bollards into ground which is uneven. This means that the bollards are positioned at a slight incline. If you attempt to install the bollards, this could be a disadvantage, but we can use professional redress techniques to make sure that the bollard is fitted correctly. We may even pour some new concrete to create a more even surface.
