Commercial Security Gates Newcastle

Traffic control barriers provide a security and safety measure to prevent vehicle or pedestrian traffic from colliding with obstacles or potential hazards. 

They are widely used for street works and construction to help passers-by and people working on-site remain safe from harm.

Bollards And Barriers Newcastle

Yes. Installing driveway bollards are by far one of the most effective visual deterrents. They present an additional obstacle for potential car thieves to overcome if they are trying to steal your vehicle from your driveway. 

So long as the driveway bollards are positioned on your property, you will not be required to have planning permission to have them installed.

Bollards are short posts used to prevent traffic from entering a restricted area. According to the Traffic Calming Organisation, bollards are quite often required to control the amount of traffic entering an area or location by controlling traffic speed by narrowing the available space or limiting movements. 

Suppose you want to control the number of vehicles that enter your business premises, or you want to stop cars from accessing your property without permission. In that case, having a barrier fitted will prevent this from happening. 

They are also a great deterrent from potential intruders when your business premises are closed. Depending on the amount of traffic your premises receive, the barriers can be automatic or controlled by security staff.
