Our Stainless-Steel Bollard posts require almost no maintenance. Even with minimal maintenance stainless-steel bollard posts will maintain their finish and keep looking clean and tidy for many years to come.
Stainless-Steel Security Bollard Posts are not only beneficial for the protection of buildings, but they are also part of road safety too. These can be mounted on kerb sides to prevent vehicles mounting pavements and injuring pedestrians. When parking is limited, unfortunately people do tend to mount the kerbs, which in turn restricts the amount of pavement available for pedestrians.
These bollards have been installed in a variety of locations to increase both pedestrian and traffic safety. Due to the design of these Stainless-Steel Bollard Posts they will not impact the visual appearance of premises.
As electric charging points are increasing throughout the UK, these stainless-steel parking bollards can also be situated around the charging points to give them added protection will be aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Aremco Barriers plain stainless-steel bollard posts are contemporary and practical. They look elegant and clean and add aesthetic protection to any industrial space.
The versatility of stainless steel enables us to manufacture a broad range of bollard styles and finishes.
We have a choice of tops which include semi dome, mitre, flat and machined with a choice of finishes to complement this.
We offer two grades: Grade 304 and Grade 316.
Stainless-Steel Bollard Posts create a physical and visual barrier for security and safety. Made from stainless steel, these steel bollards are built to withstand direct impacts from vehicles.
Our stainless-steel bollards are fixed firmly into place with bolts or cement for permanent security. We also provide a removable option which allows temporary access to areas.

A brief explanation is shown below of the two different grades.
The most basic difference between grade 304 and grade 316 stainless steels is that 316 tends to have more nickel and a bit of molybdenum in the mix. ... Though the stainless steel 304 alloy has a higher melting point, grade 316 has a better resistance to chemicals and chlorides (like salt) than grade 304 stainless steel.
Grade 316 is a popular alloy of stainless steel with a melting range of 2,500 °F –2,550 °F (1,371 °C – 1,399°C). As an austenitic stainless-steel alloy, it has qualities such as high strength, corrosion resistance, and high concentrations of chromium and nickel.The alloy has a tensile strength of 579 MPa (84 ksi) and a maximum use temperature of around 800˚C (1,472˚F).
Additionally, grade 316 has added molybdenum in its formulation, which improves the alloy’s resistance to acids, alkalis, and chloride pitting.
316 Stainless Steel Properties & Applications
Grade 316 steel comes in a close second to 304 stainless steel in terms of commonality. With similar physical and mechanical properties to grade 304, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between the two with the naked eye. The primary differentiator is in grade 316’s material composition:
The increased nickel content and the inclusion of molybdenum makes grade 316 stainless steel a bit costlier than grade 304 per ounce of material. But where grade 316 stainless proves superior is its increased corrosion resistance—particularly against chlorides and chlorinated solutions. This makes grade 316 stainless particularly desirable for applications where exposure to salt or other powerful corrosives is an issue.
Some of the more common applications for grade 316 steel are:
Another popular high-performing alloy, grade 304 stainless steel is a durable material in terms of tensile strength, durability, corrosion, and oxidation resistance. The melting point of stainless steel 304 is reached at temperatures ranging between 2,550 °F – 2,650 °F (1399 °C – 1454 °C). However, the closer grade 304 stainless steel reaches its melting point, the more tensile strength it loses.
Grade 304 stainless steel is especially exceptional for its high tensile strength of about 621 MPa (90 ksi).Stainless steel 304 alloy has a maximum operating temperature of about 870˚C.
304 Stainless Steel Properties & Applications
One of the most common grades of stainless steel used, 304 steel has excellent corrosion resistance due to its high percentage of chromium. Its chemical makeup consists of:
There are small amounts of carbon and manganese present at times also. These elements make it resistant to oxidation,which makes for easy cleaning and sanitization.
Some of the more common applications for grade 304 steel are:
One weakness of 304 stainless steel is its susceptibility to pitting, localized areas of corrosion, due to exposure to high chloride solutions or saline environments. As little as 25 ppm of chlorides can cause pitting corrosion to begin.
