Installation of Bollards
We offer a comprehensive bollard installation through our hardstanding services division. Our team of experienced engineers will work with you to ensure that your bollards are installed correctly and safely. We also offer a maintenance and servicing program to keep them in top condition for years to come.
When installing bollards in a driveway, it is important to space them properly. The recommended spacing is 1.4-1.5 meters apart, centre to centre. This will help to deter vehicles from driving through the bollards and will also provide adequate clearance for pedestrians and wheelchair users. A fixed point within the entrance, such as a wall, hedge, planter, or fence post, can be used as a starting point for determining the spacing of the bollards. However, it is important to consider the overall size of the surface and the type of vehicles that will be using it. If you are unsure about how to space your bollards, we can help. Our team of experts can assess your facility and recommend the best spacing for your needs.
