The increasing use of motor vehicles in urban environments demonstrates the need to install effective barrier systems which allow pedestrian flow while precluding vehicle encroachment. Bollards are exceptionally effective in that role.
With more than 500 models, Leda’s Securapost bollard range is the largest and most comprehensive available.
Leda bollards are stylish, diverse, and are designed for a broad range of applications. And while aesthetics remain an important consideration in selecting a design, it is also important to address pedestrian safety and property protection.
A busy thoroughfare with 60-80km/h traffic would understandably require bollards with a far higher impact rating than areas adjacent to carparks or pedestrian malls where vehicle speeds are restricted to about 10km/h or 20km/h.
Bollards have become an integral part of all new developments, so it is important that architects and specifiers select the appropriate product and impact resistance, while still achieving the aesthetic considerations for the site.
