The increasing use of motor vehicles in urban environments demonstrates the need to install effective barrier systems which allow pedestrian flow while precluding vehicle encroachment. Architectural and Security bollards are exceptionally effective in that role.
• Building forecourts and perimeters
• Shopping centres and malls
• Government sites and utilities
• Industrial complexes
• Public and community areas
• Schools and university campuses
• Alfresco dining areas
Leda bollards are stylish, diverse, and are designed for a broad range of applications. And while aesthetics remain an important consideration in selecting a design, it is also important to address pedestrian safety and property protection. A busy thoroughfare with 60-80km/h traffic would understandably require bollards with a far higher impact rating than areas adjacent to carparks or pedestrian malls where vehicle speeds are restricted to about 10km/h or 20km/h.
To assist in the selection process, the bollards in our Handbook have been divided into four categories:
Many models are available across security and non-security applications to allow continuity of bollard type throughout a project. Some architectural bollards – such as the Slimline stainless steel Lighting range – can also be manufactured to provide a security option.
Bollards have become an integral part of all new developments, so it is important that architects and specifiers select the appropriate product and impact resistance, while still achieving the aesthetic considerations for the site.
• Pedestrian delineation and separation
• Perimeter security
• Vehicle access control
• Ram raid protection
