Shallow Foundation

The SideWALK® Shallow Bollards Series was developed to overcome installation challenges associated with urban environments. Standard crash rated bollards typically require foundation depths of up to three feet or more to achieve desired crash ratings. In major metropolitan cities where the area under the pavement and streets are crowded with utilities and other infrastructure, a four foot foundation is virtually impossible.

Flexible Installation

The SideWALK® Shallow Bollards Series consists of individual bollards that are easy to install even when the terrain causes each of the bollards to change slope and grade. This is a unique design for shallow foundation crash rated bollards as all other manufacturers use a sled design comprising less flexible bollard sets. This allows bollard installation around typical obstructions.

Pedestrian Friendly

The main benefit of choosing SideWALK® Shallow Bollards to create a stand off is the ability to restrict vehicular access without obstructing pedestrian access. The SideWALK® Shallow Bollards are designed to meet ADA spacing requirements while maintaining the site-specific crash rating.

Decorative Designs

The SideWALK® Shallow Bollards series stands alone in the industry with its wide range of aesthetically pleasing options. The most common aluminum styles can be powder coated to a range of colors and textures including lighting and reflective safety stripes. The stainless steel, stone, and resin options can add architectural decor to your facility. You do not have to sacrifice your sites streetscapes or facility’s appearance to meet security standards.
