The bollard is easily removable for events, maintenance or upgrades and ground socket can be capped. If the bollard is badly impacted the internal core may bend at ground level and must be replaced (all other components re-usable impact after impact).
Remove security stud
Use Allen key to remove security stud from base of bollard and simply slip off the bollard cover
NB: Security Studs available upon request.
Slip bollard off
The industrial leverage removal tool is used to remove the Internal core from the ground socket. (A pin can be inserted into the Core to enable use of a foot tool for domestic use)
For Surface Mounted Bollards the core is removed from the base plate using an Allen key
Remove Rings from Core
Use screw driver to remove Impact Recovery Rings from the internal core. Rings are re-used.
Use screw driver to remove self-locking Taper from the internal core. Taper is re-usable
The wall thickness of the internal core determines the frangibility of the bollard and resistance against damage. This is the only replaceable component
The internal core can be increased to 60 mm solid steel increasing resistance against bending
- A Medium Gauge Internal Securing post 3.6 mm wall thickness, is recommended for car-parks and streetscapes (poly bollards are also a good idea to reduce vehicle damage) This will prevent vehicle access and do damage to a vehicle that attempt to drive through the bollard.
- A solid steel 60 mm diameter steel rod is used if you want to prevent the bollard from deflecting and stop a vehicle in its tracks. (NB: this is stronger and more sustainable than an every-day150 mm steel bollard and only suitable for 650 mm depth foundations)
