Composite Bollards

The combination of castings and steel in this range permits a great diversity in size and strength whilst retaining style elements from some of our cast bollards.The composite method of manufacture allows a greater degree of flexibility of design. These bollards can be customised by moving or adding features such as extra rings or introducing height changes to the standard shown.

All composite bollards are available in three standard heights: 750, 900 and 1100mm. The standard root depth is 300mm but this can be varied to suit ground conditions.

All steel is fully galvanised to BS729 prior to the application of primer paint or two pack epoxy acrylic top coat. Bollards may be customised by the use of logos, crests or wording in order to incorporate features such as parking restrictions and other small information plaques. Reflective tape may be added to bollards to give high visibility in vehicle headlights.

Rooted bollard installation details

Bollards should always be securely fixed in 3:2:1 concrete mix, sulphate resisting if necessary. Certain sites, (dependant upon location) may require a quick setting concrete to be used.

Extended roots are recommended for bollards where paving and bedding material take up more than a third of the standard 300mm bollard root length.

Ensure that concrete fill is allowed to fall within the root window (where provided), this will anchor the bollard more securely.

No product must ever be rolled or dropped during site installation. We recommend that individual packaging material is left in place as long as possible during the installation process to minimise the potential damage.

Great care is needed when installing finished painted products. Given the weight of most designs, paint damage most often occurs during installation. Touch up paint is available (at a cost), call our Sales office for further information.

Root box installation details

We recommend a 3:2:1 concrete mix, sulphate resisting if necessary, 400x400x600mm deep for light – medium duty traffic over-run, assuming ‘good’ soil characteristics. For heavy duty service the foundation design may have to be altered depending on the soil characteristics.

In the cases of heavy duty usage CIS should be informed at the point of order placement so that necessary provisions may be made.

Extended root bollards should have at least 200mm of concrete below the base. The data is suggested only for non-specific applications as individual requirements and site conditions may dictate otherwise. Please refer to our Technical Department for advice in debatable cases.

Unless otherwise requested the bollard will not be in aluminium, although wherever possible we would recommend its use due to the ease of lifting. In any event we recommend that you select the optional 32mm diameter lifting out hole at 640mm above FFL and its respective galvanised steel lifting bar.

Custom build bollards

The 115 and 115i bollard were designed by the artist Tess Jaray for Leeds NHS Trust and have been used within Jubilee Square at the Leeds General Infirmary. The engineering design, pattern making, casting and finishing were the responsibility of CIS Street Furniture. Also incorporated in the design is an illuminated version that features integral gear and lamps. Photographs and drawings appear by kind permission of Leeds NHS Trust and the artist Tess Jaray.

Many other bollard designs have been produced as custom build. For information or design help, please contact our Sales Department.


Cover plate installation details

Loose fit cover plate prior to installation of bollard if superstructure does not allow post-installation fitment.

When the bollard is in place and all abutting surfacing works are complete, adhere the cover plate to the surfacing and bollard using water-resistant adhesive (generally not supplied).
