Rigid bollards that bend or flex when impacted - minimizing damage to vehicles and foundations
The presence of a great many automobiles in city centres makes it necessary to limit their access to certain places: pedestrian areas, restricted parking lots, etc. Reliance Foundry's new FLEX Bollards offer the perfect mix between perimeter security and passive safety.
The bollard looks and feels like a solid rigid structure, but when impacted by a vehicle bumper, the bollard will gently bend. If a vehicle continues to force the bollard, it will continue to bend until it is at 90 degrees flush with the ground. Once the vehicle has been removed, the bollard will return to its upright rigid structure. These bollards are designed to cause minimum damage to a vehicle while preserving the bollard and it's foundations. In most cases after impact the bollard does not need to be replaced or repaired, saving both time and cost.
These bendable traffic delineators are flexible up to 90 degrees, and can absorb minor impacts without tearing up paving or concrete. Reliance Foundry's new FLEX Bollards show minimum residual deformation and creasing no matter which way the impact arises; these will not break or split when driven over and they rebound after being hit, slowly returning back to their upright position.
Flexible bollard posts are extremely robust & durable, they require low maintenance, and are easy and cost effective to install.
