The distance between the flexible bollards however allows pedestrians and bicycle riders to go through. Our bollards are easily installed, and we use a lock at the bottom to secure them and remove them at will.

Our experts will install them at any given setting for added safety and to make it convenient, for people. Fixed bollards can also be chicanes set in the ground, ideal for securing the entrance to a cycle path or a multi-use route.
