What are Parking Posts?
Parking posts are bollards typically made out of steel which acts to prevent unauthorised access to an area or to control movement within a car park.
PITTMAN is Ireland's leading supplier of bollards, parking posts and barriers have a wide range allowing you to select the most appropriate parking post for your workplace or car park.
Parking posts come in many different formats and designs including folding posts, bollards removable from a ground socket, telescopic parking posts with a powder coated finish and many more. In general parking posts are ideal for parking spaces and driveways provide high security for nearby assets and vehicles while in use. With bollards fixed into place they provide you with an excellent theft deterrent for your home or business. Some bollards are fixed with hitch locks and come with a lock supplied with 2 keys or more, in most cases.
What kind of Parking Posts can I purchase from Pittman?
Parking posts can be removable which means they can be taken out of the ground to temporarily grant access to an area within the car park or indeed to just a specific parking space. The Driveway Parking Post is a favourite with our private customers for domestic use but is also suitable for low traffic quieter areas in schools, delivery areas and hotels. This parking post comes with a ground socket which is fitted with a flap hinged cover to protect the socket when not in use.
A Recycled Barrier Post can also be used as a fixed barrier i.e. to be concreted or bolted into position permanently to block off an area, close an unused entrance or even to protect an asset e.g. plant / machinery or a pay station. For fixed parking posts you have two main options: rigid or flexible. An example of a steel (rigid) parking post is the Paystation Bollard which as the name suggests is used for protecting assets within a car park. The second option is a flexible bollard which acts mainly as a visual deterrent, can withstands impacts and therefore reduces damage to both the post itself and to vehicles. Don't forget we offer Parking Posts Installation.
Many of our posts come with reflective bands to boost visibility and reduce impacts in poor lighting conditions or dark rainy nights. Our parking posts offer excellent value for money. Our product pages will detail the features of each bollard – remember areas with heavier traffic (e.g. train station set down areas, busy multi-storey car parks) will need heavy duty bollards which have a thicker diameter, taller overall height, galvanised rust-free finish and reflective bands. Whereas light duty environments (e.g. domestic, quiet secluded areas of car park) may be alright with our BudgetBollard range.
For urban areas where you need to prevent entry to vehicles our Recycled Barrier Post can be installed into concrete for the utmost in durability, with excellent resistance to vandalism.
