Q: What is a removable bollard barrier?
A: A removable bollard barrier is a post, typically made of steel, that can be removed for traffic ingress and egress. Crash rated removable bollard barriers are very heavy and typically require a forklift for removal.
More convenient removable bollard configurations are available that retract into the ground. These barriers thus avoid the need for electricity, hydraulics or machinery. The MinuteMan manually retractable bollard barrier system is a patented retractable barrier that requires no electricity or machinery for deployment. Available in a variety of configurations, MinuteMan Bollards are deployable in seconds with the push of a finger.
