Pipe Bollards, also called Security, Parking and Safety Bollards, are used to protect buildings and property from damage or intrusion. They are commonly used in small and large retail properties to prevent damage by vehicles. Many energy facilities, such as wind and electric power generating facilities, use bollards to fortify security around the property and the equipment installations within them.
Underground fiber optic or electrical lines are marked at the surface with bollards for contractor convenience and safety. Rail and transport facilities use them to ensure public safety and prevent vehicles entering hazardous areas. Ornamental bollards are commonly used as pathway and entrance guides at numerous public recreation facilities.
