How Do Concrete Traffic Bollards Work?

Concrete traffic bollards protect pedestrians and buildings against vehicle collisions. Schools, banks, retail centers, and airports are ideal projects for concrete traffic bollards.

From homeland security to pedestrian safety, there are many applications. Concrete bollards also protect utilities, machinery, and other assets from incurring damage.
