Jun 12, 2018

Lifting columns, also known as lifting columns, lifting road piles, anti-collision piles, hydraulic lifting columns, isolation piles and so on. Lifting columns are widely used in many occasions such as urban transportation, military and national key organs and surrounding gates, pedestrian streets, highway toll stations, airports, schools, banks, large clubs, and parking lots. By restricting passing vehicles, the order of traffic and the safety of major facilities and places are effectively protected.

Lifting columns, also known as lifting columns, lifting road piles, anti-collision piles, hydraulic lifting columns, isolation piles and so on. English name Bollard. The term Bollard was originally coined to describe a short, vertical column that was frequently used by large port ships when they were parked. Now its meaning has been expanded to describe various management of pedestrian traffic, protection of critical infrastructure, establishment of perimeters, and differentiation of road facilities.

According to legend, the street guardrail began in the 17th century and is shaped like an inverted cannon, used as a boundary setting and city sign. Since then, they have appeared more and more in our daily lives, everywhere, such as supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, shops and stadiums. We can often see bollards of various shapes, or use them as a reminder of the direction of travel, or to protect us against injury, or to tell if we can park here. These beautifully shaped bollards have beautified the environment, distinguishing between the sidewalks and roadways, and sometimes even serving as chairs for us to sit down and enjoy lunch.

Fixed metal bollards are the most common. They are generally high-strength columns of painted steel bars, internally cemented and installed on the ground. Some bollards are cubes, but most are cylindrical structures with angled or flat caps. The size, color, texture, shape and function of bollards are numerous. They are fixed, or can be moved, or stretch freely, but also can be used as an ornament to decorate the original steel bollard.
