Security Bollards for Government Buildings in GFRC

Security Bollards for Government Buildings

GFRC Security Bollards are Perfect for Government Use

Originally designed for mooring ships, bollards are now a common sight in cities and parking lots as a means of directing traffic flow. However, some buildings, specifically government buildings, need additional reinforcement and security without appearing outright threatening. The threat of terrorism is a constant reminder of the necessity of extra security where it counts. Stromberg’s GFRC security bollards provide ample protection from out of control vehicles, while making it easier to direct the right traffic to the right locations. Typically, bollards are made from concrete, stone or metal, making them more hazardous for motorists than need be. Permanent security bollards made from GFRC provide a safe, stylish solution to your bollard needs.

GFRC Bollards Create Safe Pathways

We see bollards all the time, and while they don’t look like a typical sign, they function just as well. Permanent bollards help pedestrians, motorists and cyclists all share the same space. GFRC bollards from Stromberg Architectural are highly customizable, and can be manufactured to any need. With custom GFRC bollards, you can create safe pathways for pedestrians that are also specially suited to you and the image of your company.

Direct Traffic Flow with Bollards in GFRC

There is nothing more confusing than a wide open parking lot. Normally, traffic in parking lots is directed by painted signage on the pavement, which can easily clash with the design aesthetic of certain establishments. Moreover, painted signage can be obscured by snow, and is worn away over time by weather and traffic. Permanent GFRC bollards can not only be customized to suit your aesthetic needs, but they are visible in any weather conditions. Better still, they will never deteriorate from weather or traffic. Due to their low maintenance, GFRC security bollards are perfect for government buildings with tight budgets.

Protective GFRC Bollards Save Lives and Money

Traditional bollards are made out of heavy building materials such as stone, concrete or metal, which can be extremely damaging, and even deadly, if a motorist loses control of their vehicle. Stomberg’s GFRC bollards are light-weight and forgiving to unlucky drivers. Furthermore, stone or concrete bollards can be expensive and cumbersome to repair, but GFRC bollards are low-maintenance and comparably inexpensive.
