A Complete Guide to Flexible Bollards

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. All SERNIS Flexible Bollards are Certified (CE mark)- EN12899-3.

SR-BALI ACCESSORIES


SR-BALI anchors are available in 3 types: SR-A12022 (A1 - Aluminum), SR-A6050 (A2 - Aluminum), SR-S11622 (A3 - Galvanized Steel). Anchors allow bollards to be installed directly into the ground to provide permanent security. They facilitate and reinforce the bollards installation, allowing the bollard to absorb contact from accidents while limiting damage to both the bollard and the vehicle.
SR-BALI Rubber Washer and Plastic Washer are rings made of rubber or plastic to improve the maintenance process. It must be installed at the bottom of the bollard to prevent ingress of glue to the base.
SR-BALI Maintenance Accessory is used for maintenance procedures of the bollards, making it easier to attach or detach the bollard from the pavement.
