Flexible Bollards have become a common sight in the world, especially in cities. They are used to form physical and visual barriers that guide vehicles, prevent access to restricted areas, regulate pedestrian and vehicular traffic and improve landscaping and design, define pedestrian walkways, create separated bike lanes, and secure and protect buildings and pedestrians.
Flexible bollards are a cost-effective infrastructure option for cities to make expected behavior clear. They are available in many colors that allow them to stand out and be highly visible, which is an important feature when it comes to safety.
Flexible Bollards has several uses:
Traffic and landscaping visual aids
Traffic bollards are used to direct traffic to the proper locations while maintaining good sightlines and allowing pedestrian traffic. They direct traffic by establishing road boundaries or restricting entry areas such as cycle lanes, public spaces, and traffic islands.
They can alert drivers to various types of road hazards, such as narrow roads, high curbs, and the possibility of high-impact collisions. Flexible bollards act as a barrier, preventing vehicles from entering pedestrian areas and vice versa, minimizing the risk of injury to drivers and pedestrians.
To discourage cars from trying to bypass other traffic control measures, they are often used in conjunction with other traffic-calming techniques, such as speed humps or one-way streets.
Cycle Track Separation
Cyclists benefit from separated cycle tracks because they are safer and reduce driver tension. Flexible bollards encourage more people to ride their bikes on the road. SR-BALI and SR-CITY-BALI that are robust and flexible are a safer option.
Cyclists prefer dedicated cycle paths. According to a study published in the Journal of Urban, Planning, and Transportation Research, 74 percent of active and 77 percent of non-active bicyclists cite “continuous bike lanes/trails” as the most important factor when choosing a route. Cyclists who rode in designated bike lanes felt 2.62 times better than those who rode in traffic.
Pedestrian areas delineation
The purpose of flexible bollards is to provide a safe pedestrian passage in a city for pedestrians. Flexible bollards might help prevent an accident from becoming a tragedy. Flexible bollards mark out safe paths for pedestrians.
Flexible bollards are used in many landscapes and on many properties to delineate pedestrian areas.
Flexible bollards might help prevent an accident from becoming a tragedy. Flexible bollards mark out safe paths for pedestrians. Playgrounds near parking lots, parks beside sharp bends in the road, outdoor patios near busy roadways are some of the places that can benefit from flexible bollards installations.
A row of bollards around a building will define its perimeter while also adding architectural interest. They may also be used to define a playground or park, allowing easy access and preventing it from being used as a thoroughfare.
Private areas delineation
Flexible bollards ensure that the public knows that a particular area or property is a privately owned commercial or residential property or a non-parking area. This protects the privacy of property owners and prevents trespassing in exclusive areas (e.g. parking in front of private garages).
Flexible bollards can delineate storefront/warehouse areas, prevent vehicles from demolishing storefront/warehouse areas, and create a safe space between the parking lot and the entrance area. They can prevent drivers from accidentally driving directly into a storefront and causing significant damage.
