FAQs about Stainless Steel Bollards

How are Stainless Steel Bollards made?

Stainless Steel Bollards are manufactured from a single stainless steel sheet rolled into a tube. It is welded to the top cap and to two spigots. To create the Brush Saint finish, the bollard is brush polished with a grit belt or wheel.

What are the main reasons for using Stainless Steel Bollards?

Stainless steel bollards can be used for a variety of purposes, including access control. They are also commonly used to mark parking spots, create restricted areas in driveways, and act as a deterrent for theft. Stainless steel bollards, for example, prevent cars from entering pedestrian-only areas. Also, you can find them in areas such as shopping malls, university campuses, and shopping centers.

What are the different Grades of Stainless Steel used for?

The 316 grade is superior to the 304 grade, which is the standard grade. For external environments in the UK, grade 304 is more cost-effective and perfectly adequate. Due to the extreme exposure to corrosive saline elements in coastal regions, Grade 316, with its higher nickel content, should be used. Both grades have the same appearance and will tarnish the same way if not maintained regularly.

What is the difference between Galvanised Steel and Stainless Steel?

Galvanised products are made from steel of a higher gauge, which gives them a better level of protection. An aesthetically pleasing finish can always be achieved by powder coating a galvanised product. Its finish is far superior to its galvanised counterpart. However, it has a lower gauge material as a result, which is less protective in certain areas.

Is Stainless Steel Recyclable?

Stainless steel can be recycled without any problems. It is produced using three main alloys - nickel, chromium, and molybdenum. In addition to being valuable and easily recoverable, these materials ensure a cost-effective and environmentally friendly process.
