You can choose from rigid or self-recovering options
An EPS Impact Recovery Sleeve is attached to the internal securing post using an Allen key and simply dropped into the ground socket, automatically locking in and remaining secure. The bollard is then slipped over the sleeve and secured using a security stud. If bollard is badly impacted the foundations and bollard are protected from damage and the internal post is simply removed using the tools provided, and replaced.
If you want the bollard to absorb impact from a vehicle and self-recover Two Impact Recovery Rings (Shock absorbers) are used to make the bollard deflect up to twenty degrees (will not deflect by hand) and slowly self-recover impact after impact.
