What are the different types of bollards used in Australia?

In Australia, various types of bollards are utilised to enhance safety, control traffic flow, and protect pedestrians and property. Key bollard types include: 1. Fixed bollards: Permanently affixed for long-term protection and demarcation, commonly seen in pedestrian zones, parks, and commercial areas. 2. Removable bollards: Easily detached for temporary access or events, ideal for controlling vehicle access in restricted areas. 3. Retractable bollards: Integrated into the ground and can be raised or lowered as needed, providing a flexible solution for managing traffic and security. 4. Flexible bollards: Constructed from durable materials that bend upon impact, reducing damage and improving safety in areas with frequent vehicle movement. Selecting the appropriate bollard type depends on your specific requirements, location, and desired level of security.
