Press Release Summary:
Made of fully pigmented, self-finished, polyurethane material, models R-8351, R-8352, and R-8353 are fixed bollards that install into footing in ground and remain in place at all times. They withstand impacts that bend them up to 90Â° and will return to their upright position when load is removed. Bollards do not appear to be flexible or bendable upon first glance, however, and thus deter intentional vehicular ramming. There are 7 standard color options, with optional reflective striping.

Reliance Foundry Adds 3 New Options for Flexible Bollards
Flexible bollards are fast becoming popular choices by architects, designers and landscapers for assistance in traffic management and safety. To address the growing needs, Reliance Foundry is pleased to offer three new options in their flexible bollard product lines.
The new models: R-8351, R-8352, and R-8353 bendable bollards are made of a breakthrough polyurethane material. It is a fully-pigmented, self-finished material that requires almost no maintenance. It is high-impact resistant, making it ideal for use in places where the bollard might be run into by a vehicle at low speed.
These new models are fixed bollards; meaning that they are installed into a footing in the ground and are intended to remain in place at all times. They can withstand an impact that bends them up to 90 degrees and will return to their upright position when the load is removed. This reduces the amount of damage to vehicles that come in contact with the bollard and also removes the need for bollard replacement following an impact.
Cost savings are not the only benefit to using these fixed, flexible bollards from Reliance Foundry. They have visual appeal;
All three of of these new models bollards come in 7 standard color options with choices of white, yellow or red reflective striping if desired. Bollards add not only functionality, but can also enhance the aesthetics of the property.
There are protection benefits to be gained as well. Because of their innovative design and materials used, upon first glance, these bollards do not appear to be flexible or bendable. This is an important security feature. By appearing as rigid and strong as their fixed metal bollard counterparts, would-be vandals or criminals are deterred from vehicular ramming of bollards to get at property.
The three new additions to Reliance Foundry's flexible bollard round out an already impressive product line. Reliance Foundry offers several other flexible bollard models that include fixed, flanged or removable mounting options and are made of a composite material with white or yellow reflective stripe options. Guiding traffic, protecting walls and curbs, keeping cars from pedestrian walkways, perimeter security, and defining traffic patterns are all improved with the use of flexible bollards.
Reliance Foundry's new models now makes choosing the right bollard even easier. These flexible bollards are available in many colors, with colored reflective tape options.
