Addgards introduces Bollard Sleeve to smarten forecourts

Addgards bollard sleeve

Addgards has developed a Bollard Sleeve to slide over existing steel bollards to protect against weathering and erosion.

The Sleeves are made from durable polyethylene that won’t fade, scrape or chip like powder coated paint, and have a bright smooth finish that can be made to match the forecourt exterior.

Claire Flynn, sales manager at Addgards, stated: “On our initial visits to sites we noticed some forecourts had a ‘typical’ bollard that took a lot of hits and scrapes, damaging both the car and the bollard.

“On investigation we found the bollard was ‘below the sight line’ of the driver and effectively was invisible when reversing or turning. By simply adding a taller sleeve to the existing bollard we made the bollard more visible, safer and it looked better and a more professional finish, in line with the rest of the forecourt.”

The sleeves are supplied in yellow and black but can also be produced in a range of colours. The sleeves can be cut to fit and are supplied with a range of adhesive-backed foam strips to ensure a tight fit.

They are suitable for bollards from 90mm to 179mm, and can also fit a 75mm inner steel pole.
