Retractable bollards are designed for medium security applications like traffic and parking control. They provide a basic, trouble free operation proven over many years of installation. The retractable bollard is now provided by a choice of two different materials. The BR900 includes a 5mm thick mild steel bollard that is certainly galvanised prior to being powder coated in hi-vis safety yellow with two reflective bands. The BR900-SS has a 3.05mm thick 316 marine grade stainless steel bollard. As this model is ideal for ssqhnf architectural applications it does not include reflective bands.
