Where do you place cast iron bollards?
Like many types of bollards, cast iron bollards should sit approximately 1.5 feet back from a curb where cars are allowed to park. This provides car owners room for doors to open and space for passengers to get out their cars without the risk of hitting the bollard. This is particularly important if vehicle parking is allowed beside the bollards; if not, they can be installed close to the curb.

Decorative bollards can be installed on removable or permanent mounts. Removable cast iron bollards provide temporary or seasonal access. Permanent bollards can either stand-alone or be used as reinforcing cast iron over steel-and-concrete posts.
