Shining a Light With Our Bollards


Bollards are short, vertical posts used in landscaping, architecture, and security applications. Originating from the maritime industry where bollards were used on ship docks for mooring, the term has evolved to encompass a variety of structures used to control or direct road traffic, protect pedestrians and buildings from vehicle intrusions, and serve as decorative elements in landscaping and lighting.


Bollards are typically made of sturdy, durable materials like steel, concrete, or aluminum, and are usually installed into the ground. They can be found in a wide variety of environments, including streets, sidewalks, parks, and around buildings. Bollards that are illuminated with LED* lights are specifically engineered to offer safe and efficient lighting, while simultaneously enhancing the visual appeal of the surroundings.

There are several types of bollards, including:


  • Security Bollards:
    • These are designed to prevent vehicle access to specific areas. They are commonly seen in front of government buildings, sports stadiums, or pedestrian zones. 


  • Decorative Bollards:
    • Often used in parks, city streets, or private properties, these bollards enhance the aesthetics of the area while also providing functionality. 


  • Illuminated Bollards or Lighting Bollards:
    • These contain lighting elements, both incandescent and LED* models, to enhance visibility and safety at night. They are commonly used to illuminate paths, entrances, and high-traffic areas, helping to prevent accidents and increase security. The directed light also reduces light pollution.


 *While our bollards can accommodate a range of lighting types and lamps, it’s our LED variants that deliver the following benefits:


  • Efficient Lighting:
    • LED technology is known for its high energy efficiency. Compared to traditional lighting technologies like incandescent or halogen, LED lights consume less energy for the same amount of light output, which can lead to significant savings on electricity costs.
  • Eco-Friendly:
    • LED lights are more environmentally friendly than traditional lighting technologies. They don’t contain harmful chemicals like mercury and emit fewer greenhouse gases due to their high energy efficiency.
  • Lighting Control:
    • Many of our LED bollards offer dimming and electric eye options, allowing for greater control over lighting levels and energy use. LED lights also have a longer lifespan than traditional light sources and can last tens of thousands of hours, reducing the need for frequent replacements.
