Composed of a highly durable & resilient polyurethane material, Reliance Foundry's Flexible bollards will bend 90° upon impact to reduce damage to vehicles: http://www.reliance-foundry.com/bollard/flexible-bendable
Flexible bollards increase safety on roadways by ensuring vehicles travel on designated paths. Flexible bollards are traffic-friendly and show minimum residual deformation and creasing after being struck. They will not split or break when driven over and if they are struck, they will not pull up the concrete surface. Flexible bollards often separate traffic where travellers must remain in their lane for a period of time. They are commonly seen in the area leading to toll booths and on roadways where they mark intended traffic routes. They are a visual deterrent that prevent cars and bicycles from switching lanes at dangerous curves and close to buildings.

In Late August of 2013, Reliance Foundry’s decorative iron bollard covers were installed at Boston’s notorious Fenway Park to integrate perimeter security with the site’s historical architectural motif.

To perform the installation, Lanzillo and Sons Construction used a unique version of the standard security post cover installation. Threaded rods were pre-set with concrete in the interior of the security posts which were then set in the concrete substrate. Once the concrete had cured, the bollards were placed over the security pipes and secured to the threaded rods with washers and 1” nuts. Each bollard’s cap was then fastened to the shaft with anti-theft set screws.
The installed bollards add elegant ornamentation to the security pipes while creating an architectural highlight that coincides with site’s celebrated architecture.
