Nowadays, driving a car is synonymous with danger, since there are more and more distractions available to us than ever before. Some drivers are overconfident in their driving abilities, while others use their mobile devices while driving. Any of these acts have the potential to result in life-threatening scenarios.
Distracted driving and distracted walking are the main reason why we at SERNIS concentrate our efforts on identifying new ways to catch attention from road users.
Flexible bollards are vividly colored and have high-reflective tape and crystals that greatly improve the driver’s perception. Due to their high visibility effect, these bollards have the capability of preventing serious accidents from occurring.
What is a flexible bollard?
A flexible bollard is designed to separate pedestrian/bike areas from traffic in high-traffic areas. It can also be used to control road traffic, restrict entrances and exits to exclusive zones, monitor traffic, and prevent ram-raiding attacks.
When a vehicle collides with a flexible post, it will just make a noisy sound and stop the car for moving. Flexible bollards are built with high-reflective tapes and crystals, making them visible even in low light or at night.
What kind of protection can a flexible bollard offer?
Flexible bollards serve as a visual reference for cars, indicating where they can go, however, they also bend in the event of a collision to prevent damage to vehicles or to the bollard itself.
Flexible bollards reduce collision damage
If a vehicle accidentally hits a flexible bollard post, this will simply spring back in action, causing little to no damage to the vehicle. These traffic bollards are usually employed for parking spaces in commercial or residential zones due to the fact that drivers are more often required to reverse their cars.
