What are fold down bollards?
Where static or stationary bollards provide a permanent access or theft deterrent fold down bollards can be installed to provide access when and where you need it. At home, for example, fold down bollards can be installed directly behind where you would normally park your car, deterring theft and providing peace of mind while you are away or at night.

For a wider bollard our Cobain Wide Arm Fold Down Bollard is an excellent option - the wider arms on the bollards help to reduce the space between car spaces and offer excellent theft deterrence while in use.
How do you install fold down bollards?
Our fold down bollards can be quickly and easily installed directly into concrete. When installing simply mark out the pre-drilled holes for the bollard and then drill down as needed. Once this is done you can easily tighten the fixings into place. If you are installing into tarmac we would recommend that you first insert a concrete pad to provide a stable base for the bollard.
Tarmac tends to be weak at times when it comes to supporting a bollard so installing a concrete base provide the correct support and leverage that the bollard requires.
