Bollards Explained in Print LEAFIELD Highway - 24.1.2013

Leafield Environmental, the Wiltshire based street furniture manufacturer has produced a new six page, full colour bollard selector that details its complete range of highway bollards in a simple brief format.

All Leafield bollards are rotationally moulded from a durable thermoplastic polymer in a wide range of colours. They are reported to withstand extremes of temperature and never chip, rust or require painting. Compared to traditional metal bollards they are up to 20 times lighter and consequently easier to transport and handle.

Leafield highway bollards are available with a variety of fixing types including permanent, anti-ram, bayonet socket and surface mount. Many are available in a “reflex” bounce back option whereby they are able to bend through 90% during a collision and yet return to shape and position quickly afterwards.

On the other hand, when a conventional cast iron bollard is struck, it tears up the pavement surface, becoming a pedestrian hazard, as well as causing significant damage to the vehicle.

Also featured in the brochure are eco-bollards, a range of environmentally friendly bollards made using a combination of 50% chipped plastic bottles and 50% regular polymer.

Leafield Environmental at Seeing is Believing LEAFIELD Highway - 10.10.2012

Leafield Environmental will be exhibiting its range of Highway and decorative bollards and signs at Seeing is Believing 2012.

Visitors to stand 69 will see several new bollards exhibited in the UK for the first time, including the new Manchester bollard, reminiscent of the cast iron bollards used for centuries but offering the benefits of modern day manufacturing materials.

Also on display for the first time will be the Sentry Junction bollard developed specifically to mark the precise position of poorly lit rural junctions.

Of special interest will be the recently launched Illuminated Night Owl keep left bollard… a retroreflective, self righting, sign bollard powered by Zeta, that is designed to be highly visible but cause minimal damage to the vehicle or the bollard itself should a collision occur… so reducing bollard replacement costs.

A further ‘first time’ exhibit will be the Linsign 150, an exciting new range of sign bollards that is said to be the perfect solution for designating cycle ways or parking slots, vehicle/pedestrian demarcation or controlling site access.

Out on track area 7, visitors will see both illuminated and non-illuminated Night Owl bollards in action, along with the highly visible Sentry Junction bollard and Heritage Visibol bollards with their highly reflective banding, all in a street scene display.
