Introduction to Residential Bollards ↓ show more detail ↓
Bollards are perfectly suited to many private residential environments. They are visually discreet, strong, and designed to allow horse and pedestrian access into specified zones while preventing vehicle access.
Examples of where manual bollards are often used are homeowners with a public right of way running through their property. This public right of way usually entitles horse or pedestrian access but not vehicle access. A manual bollard can be installed at both ends of the public right of way to allow horse and pedestrian access but preventing vehicle access.
A slightly more advanced example would be a public right of way through farm land. Farmers may still wish to grant horse and pedestrian access but not vehicles, with the added option of the facility to drive their own vehicles and machinery through the access point. In this case the more advanced solution would be to install a remote access controlled rising bollard that the farmer can set to lower when needed, similar to a bus travelling through an access controlled bus lane.
We have installed numerous residential bollard solutions for home owners and farmers from our Portcullis Gate Automation offices in Kent and Buckinghamshire. One site required the installation of 2 sets of automated entrance bollards three miles apart, closing off the entire public footpath and bridleway to all but horses and pedestrians with the facility of the landowner having access for his agricultural machinery.
Many dwellings hold valuable assets where added security is specified to prevent theft. An example may be a farmyard housing expensive machinery. A residential gate may not be enough to protect the assets housed inside so by installing a rising bollard behind the gate it will add the desired security to stop any ram-raid style theft attempts.
Our Residential Bollard Services ↓ show more detail ↓
When visiting customers interested in installing bollards in residential environments our surveyors will discuss the bollard’s intended use and main functional requirements. This will help our surveyor assess the level of security required by the bollard installation.
They will also discuss any aesthetic impacts a bollard installation will create and very importantly conduct a full site survey, risk assessment and health and safety check to make sure there are no underlying ground problems or potential danger points or hazards.
The surveyor will offer you advice and solutions based on their survey results and should you wish to proceed, all works will be compliant with the Machinery Directive and health and safety recommendations as set out by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) where applicable.
As with all Portcullis Gate Automation installations, you as the customer will have the option to take advantage of our pre-planned preventive maintenance and after sales service.
