What are the pipe in parking lot called?
The vertical, yellow pipes often found in a parking lot are called steel pipe bollards. The word bollard originated as a nautical term, referring to a mooring post on a ship. While the most common pipe bollards are schedule 40 steel and either painted yellow or covered with a yellow polyethylene covers, installed pipe bollard covers are also available in several different colors, stainless steel covers and even decorative concrete covers.
Steel pipe bollards are installed to protect structures, sensitive equipment or prohibit vehicular traffic from restricted areas.
Protective bollards are very often installed in conjunction with parking signs. Once the safety bollards are installed, the parking sign post is inserted in the center of the steel bollard and then filled with concrete. If the sign post is struck by a vehicle, the surrounding protective pipe bollard is designed to minimize the damage to the internal sign post.
Fuel island bollards are used in similar fashion, to reduce the possibility of a vehicle colliding with a fuel tank or propane storage tank.
Also known as pipe barriers, or parking barriers, they are frequently installed at the dock doors of warehouses or bay doors of fire stations. Their installation reduces the likelihood, and resulting damage, of a truck backing into the building.
Once installed, pipe bollards require very little maintenance, especially when incorporated with a plastic bollard cover.
Steel bollards are available in a few different sizes, depending the intended application (6″ and 4″ are common sizes). They can be painted or have long lasting vinyl covers available in several different colors to match your facility.
