How do I protect my vehicle when parked on my driveway?
Well, we at Aremco Barriers have the solution. Our Telescopic Mole Post has proven extremely popular over many years with both Residential and Commercial customers alike. Compared to similar products on the market, ours is probably the most economical and reasonably priced.
A Great Buy for a Great Product.
Unique Selling Point - Should just the inner get damage, then this can easily be replaced without having to excavate the complete unit. Also, using a padlock to lock the post instead of an integral lock, is something else that will not go wrong with this product. There are many similar products on the market where if there is a problem and it cannot be rectified the entire unit will need to be excavated and a new unit installed, thus proving costly and time consuming, and in this day and age with vehicles being stolen at an increasing rate from driveways, no-one wants to wait too long to re-secure their driveway.
This fully British Manufactured Telescopic Mole Post is a low-cost solution, ideal for security and parking reservation applications, and proves very popular with clients who wish to keep the lifting weight down for staff. These have proven to be a simple, secure, and cost-effective method of protecting premises, making these posts the perfect barrier to prevent crime.
This is an inexpensive way to protect your driveway and deter would be thieves. In comparison to the cost of your vehicle and the disruption a theft may cause, security measures are a small price to pay.
We have found over many years that Residential customers love this Telescopic Post, as there is nothing that can go wrong with it, and as mentioned before, should the part above ground get damaged, then this is very easy to replace, less costly and time consuming. Also, either discus padlocks or shutter padlocks have been recommended not by use, but by our customers.
This fully retractable heavy duty square telescopic Security Post clicks into the upright position with a catch and locks with a padlock (not supplied – recommended by our customers are the discus padlock or shutter padlock) at the bottom of the post.
The Telescopic Mole Post lies flush to the ground when not in use and has an easy to use retractable lifting handle, ideal for locations that have pedestrian and vehicle activity. These posts are raised vertically out of the ground and locked in seconds in the upright position by means of a padlock(not supplied). When not in use the post slides directly into its host tube until flush with the ground, thus creating no trip hazard.
Unfortunately, due to the tightness and constant lowering and raising of this Telescopic Post, we only offer them galvanised, as either paint or reflective banding would not last.
We do not class these posts as RAM RAID, but a few of our customers have had these installed on their garage forecourts, they have tried ram raiding these posts with their vehicles but to no avail, and the only part that has got damaged is the part that is above ground.
As you can see from some of the photographs, these can easily be installed on sloping driveways.
