The visibility bollard is essential for the safe and efficient movement of vehicles and pedestrians. As the leading road signage provider in Québec for over 30 years, our company proudly presents an innovative solution for road signage needs – the custom bollard. As a part of our commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions, we offer a range of products for security, including the custom bollard. Our flagship product offers distinctive applications and benefits for pedestrians and vehicle riders.

Wide range of applications for customized solutions

Unlike standard bollards, our custom solution can be used in both outdoor and indoor spaces.

Parking lots & outdoor spaces

Bollard systems are commonly installed in parking lots to delineate parking spaces, establish traffic lanes, and prevent unauthorized access. Furthermore, they are useful for directing pedestrian pathways, separating vehicular and foot traffic, and enhancing security measures in outdoor areas.

Indoor solutions for retail stores & hospitals

Plastic bollard covers are utilized in indoor settings like hospitals and retail stores to establish visual barriers, guide customer traffic flow, and demarcate specific areas. They are also effective in safeguarding equipment and private spaces.

Installing customized solutions in high-traffic areas

To withstand heavy traffic, heavy-duty bollards are usually installed in high traffic areas such as busy city streets, highways, and airports. Additionally, they can be considered as signage for protecting pedestrians or preventing unauthorized access.

What you need to know about custom bollards

Before installing custom bollards, there are several important factors to consider.

Custom bollards on street
Planning permission

In some areas, planning permission may be required for installing bollards. It is important to check with local authorities before installing any type of custom bollard.

Depth of burial of a bollard

The standard depth of burial of a bollard requires a minimum of 24 inches up to 48 inches of concrete embedment below grade. Kalitec provides an array of anchoring systems to make it easy and cost-effective to install bollards.

Should bollards be filled with concrete?

The decision to fill bollards with concrete depends on the purpose and ground condition. While it can provide stability, it also adds costs and can make them harder to remove. Ultimately, the specific needs and circumstances should be considered.

Safety regulations

To ensure safety, the installation of safety bollards must comply with government regulations and guidelines.

Our different types of bollards & their benefits

Kalitec offers a variety of bollards, each with its own benefits and features. In addition, our bollard sleeves can be used to cover standard bollards, giving them a new look without the extra cost of replacing them entirely. With the Kalifix technology, these items are easy to set up, remove or replace.

Removable bollards

Bollards that are designed to be removable are ideal for areas that need intermittent access, like event spaces, emergency vehicle access points, or loading docks, as they can be easily removed when not in use.

Flexible bollards

This bollard innovation is designed with functions, as they are called. Flexible bollards customized to be bendable under collision impact and return to their original position. Therefore, this makes them fit for areas with high traffic volumes or where vehicles may accidentally come into contact with them.

Decorative Bollards

Contrasting with the basic bollard design, a decorative bollard is created to provide an aesthetic touch to any environment. This visibility bollard can be customized with a wide variety of colors and finishes to match any decor or design scheme.

Stainless Steel Bollards

With their durable quality and ability to withstand harsh environments, stainless steel bollards are an upgraded version of regular steel bollards that offer maximum durability.

Certainly, they are ideal for areas that require high levels of security or where corrosive elements may be present.

In spite of the varieties of materials supplied, we mainly provide aluminum bollards. That’s because aluminum resists corrosion, easy to paint and customize.

Secure cycle paths and pedestrian areas!
