How far apart should bollards be placed?

One of the key factors to consider when planning your Bollard install is your Environment. For instance, let's say you need to protect a Warehouse and Inventory.

While there are no Australian Standards on how far apart Steel Bollards should be placed, there are some guidelines to keep in mind. One of the situations that come to mind are areas that have surrounding dual or multi-channels of traffic where vehicles need to be correctly managed in order to protect your customers, employees and other assets.

How you place Bollards can prohibit vehicles access and still allow pedestrians to flow through easily and without noticing any changes to the area.

How Far Apart Should Bollards Be Placed?

As a rule of thumb, we recommend that the spacing between each Bollard should be no greater than 1500mm/1.5 meters. The reasoning behind this is that an average-sized car is around 1.6 meters in width, so this prevents vehicles being driven through the gaps between the Bollards.

This is a great guide to follow when choosing Bollards to protect car yards. Seeing as you will have varying sizes of cars on premises, the importance to safely stop entering vehicles and eliminating the risk of your vehicles being stolen is paramount.

We have a number of options available for bollards such as; In-Ground Removable, Surface Mount Removable, In-Ground & Surface Mounted.
