A wide selection of Parking-Security Posts & Bollards (designed to reserve your Parking & Secure your Vehicles & Premises).

Parking Security Posts & Bollards:

These Lockable Posts & Bollards are primarily designed to help you preserve your valuable Parking Spaces or Driveway, they can be supplied in many different Styles & Colours varying in Strength & Cost.

Ideal for an easy & affordable solution to Anti-Parking & Anti-Theft of your Vehicle, we can supply Anti-Ram models, they can be Galvanised, Stainless Steel or Powder Coated.

Security Posts & Bollards:

These Posts & Bollards are designed more for you to help protect your Vehicles & Premises, they may be fitted in front of your valuable Car parked on the drive, or fitted next to your up & over garage door where you have valuable equipment stored inside. These can also be supplied in different Styles, Colours, Locks & Strength.

The Posts & Bollard can be split into four main groups, each group then have many variations in Size, Strength & Lock Types available, the groups are:

  • Fold Down: (normally the easiest to fit, slightly lower cost & popular as a Parking Deterrent).
  • Removable: (quite a strong type of Post, no worries about underground services when fitting & popular as both Parking Deterrent or Security together with very good value for money).
  • Fully Telescopic: (these are by far the strongest type of Post or Bollard available, the principle is that there is more material underground as opposed to what is above ground, they do take more time for the installation but the first choice for Security).
  • Static: (these Posts & Bollards are fixed into the ground & are often used in conjunction with matching models from the groups above, it may be you have a wide area that you need to secure but need access through some of them, in these cases a run of Static Posts or Bollards with a few matching Fold Down, Removable or Telescopic models mixed in.  

Removable & Telescopic Posts & Bollards leave a flush ground finish when not in use, the Removable models are stored away from the ground spigot (boot, garage or secondary spigot) with a hinged lid completely covering the access hole, the Telescopic models slide into the ground leaving a totally flush finish, both resulting in No Trip Hazards ideal for locations with Public Access or locations where you have very low Vehicles or tight access making it necessary to drive over the Post. 

There are other Posts & Bollards we supply including Automatic models operated with Remote Control from the Comfort & Safety of your vehicle to Chain Posts which are a combination of various Posts with lengths of Steel or Plastic Chain (popular covering wide areas with fewer Posts).

The products are also referred as:

  • Car Park Poles.
  • Metal Driveway Posts.
  • Driveway Poles.
  • Anti-theft Steel Poles.
  • Drive Posts.
  • Driveway Posts.
  • Drive Entrance Posts & Bollards.
  • Drop Down Bollards & Parking Posts.


Which Type Should I Choose?


Ground Clearance & Risk Assessment:
  • Is the location of the post going to have low chassis cars or motorcycles driving over them or perhaps tight access meaning that you have to drive over the location of the Post, or are they located where the general public or staff may be walking over them ?
    • Fold Down Post or Bollard will lay on the ground when not in use, for the vast majority of applications this does not cause a problem because they are on private ground and the owners can ensure that there vehicles will be able to safely drive over the post they have chosen.
    • Removable Post or Bollard comes supplied with a ground spigot and flush fitting hinged top lid, when it is removed it results in there being no ground obstruction at all, very safe, but you have to store the post somewhere (in a boot of a vehicle, in a nearby building or quite often in a second spigot fitted onto the side of the access).
    • Fully Telescopic Posts & Bollards leave no ground obstruction at all, together with not having to worry about storing it elsewhere as it has retracted into the spigot base underground. They are the strongest type of Post & Bollard around but take more time in fitting, you also have to ensure that there are no underground services in the location as you would be digging down into the ground 700 mm or more (depending on the model you choose).
    • The other choice would be the unique 620 Fold Away, this is a combination of a telescopic and fold down, the tray is buried horizontal under ground, the post folds away into this box when not in use, the box has a lid which leaves the ground totally flush.
 Lock Types:
  • Integral: these are locks built into the Post, they can be located at the top or bottom (depending on the model chosen), they are the more convenient type of lock but would be more problem in the event of vandalism or mechanical problem. 
  • Padlock: these are padlocks fitted at the bottom or top (depending on the chosen model).

Both types of Locks can be purchased as K/D (keyed to differ) or KA (keyed alike), keyed alike are ideal for when you have multiple Posts or Bollards and a single Key will operate all.

Can I Install These Posts Myself (or do I need a builder) ?
  • Telescopic Posts are the hardest type of post to install, but providing you have some basic digging tools and you are fit, there is no reason why you couldn't fit these, the process is very similar to fitting a good quality fence post into the ground, the difference being is that normally a fence post in fitted into soft ground, security posts are normally into harder ground. If you don't think you have the tools or time, then any general Builder, Fencing Contractor, Gardener & General Handyman should be able to do it. 
  • Removable & Spigot, these are very simple to install, providing you have the tools to dig a small hole approximately 300mm deep by 300mm square, and knowledge how to mix a small qty of cement.
  • Bolt Down, anyone with a good drill and can hang heavy pictures on a wall would be able to fit one of these.
Key Design Features: 
  • Telescopic: Strongest, No Ground Obstructions, Easiest To Use.
  • Removable: Second Strongest, No Ground Obstructions, Great Value.
  • Fold Down: Great Value, Easiest to Install, Light to Use.
  • Hybrid Posts
    • 620 Fold Away (leaves a flush ground when not in use).
    • Hoop Barriers (stronger than traditional fold down).
