Do you require some bollards to protect your valuable building, equipment or gas pumps from crazy Manitoba drivers? Do you want protection that is aesthetically pleasing but effective and that meets your budget?
Postech Winnipeg has the just the bollard (bumper post) you’ve been looking for!
What is a bollard? I have to be honest, it’s a newer term to me too. I’ve seen then all my life but I never knew what they were called. A bollard is simply a protective pole which takes on the potential impact a vehicle might make so that it’s not your building or valuable equipment getting demolished; bollards will line the next Winnipeg fast food drive-thru you see and often sport several colours representing the sides of vehicles which have rubbed up along them. Here is a picture of some bollards installed by Postech (now you know exactly what I’m talking about).
Our system for bollards is fast and offers several benefits including:
- Lower cost than most other solutions
- Longer lifespan than concrete
- Reflective for increased visibility
- Can often be manipulated back into place after most impacts
- Easy to replace decorative cover
- Ability to install in any weather condition
- Eco-Friendly: removable, reusable and recyclable
- They stay level and don’t heave
Our process is simple. If you have concrete/asphalt in place, we make a small hole. We then install a 10 foot screw pile to a minimum depth of 8 feet, ensuring it is anchored below the frost line. Using an extension we achieve the desired height of the bollard. Lastly, we place over-top of the galvanized steel pile, a decorative plastic cover with reflectors. Most bollard jobs are finished in a matter of hours and no curing time is required, your force field is effective immediately.
