What are Bollards? What Bollards Do I Need? [infographic]

Barrier Group specialise in a massive range of bollards to suit any safety, security or architectural setting in your city, business, facility or warehouse.

In the past, bollards were primarily used at docks and marinas to moor boats when not in use but over the years the bollard has evolved to provide security, protection and architectural appearance.

Barrier Group manufactured their very first bollard (the Cam-Lok) in 1999 and over the years have perfected the quality, strength and purpose of their bollards to an increasing range of styles and options that suit any safety, security or architectural design element in your city, business, facility or warehouse.


Bollards are installed in commercial complexes such as shopping centres, shop fronts and car parks to provides security against ram-raid burglaries and deny unauthorised access by controlling traffic and parking.

City and urban landscapes use bollards to protect pedestrians, drivers and cyclists by guarding walkways, building entrances, public parks and bicycle parking facilities.

Airports, universities, schools and industrial developments such as warehouses and factories protect valuable assets and building structures from damage with the installation of bollards.
