Polyurethane Bollards FAQs
Where are polyurethane bollards best placed?
Due to their more water-resistant material, polyurethane bollards are best suited to waterside locations, access points, and pedestrian areas.
What other types of materials can bollards be made in?
At Speedy Street solutions, we manufacture and supply bollards in a range of different materials, these include cast iron, cast aluminium, mild steel, concrete, stainless steel, recycled plastic, and timber. The material you choose will depend on your needs.
What is polyurethane?
Polyurethane is a manufactured material (plastic) that was invented in the 1940s. It’s a resilient, flexible, versatile, and durable material that can take the place of many materials across thousands of applications. Since it was invented, it’s been used in a wide range of items, and it continues to be adapted for modern day advancements in technology.
Why are polyurethane bollards so popular?
Due to the nature of polyurethane, particularly its advantages of being durable and resistant to environmental weathering and chemicals, it’s a very popular and cost-effective material used for creating bollards. Since it’s a plastic and can be moulded into different shapes, it’s also popular among those who want bespoke bollards. For example, you might want the look and style of a traditional cast iron bollard but can’t afford it. Polyurethane bollards provide a solution.
Is polyurethane environmentally friendly?
Many more business and companies are interested in ways they can lessen their carbon footprint and have a lesser impact on the environment. In short, polyurethane is more eco-friendly than most other plastics.
Most plastics we see littering the environment in the most shocking ways are thermoplastics. These account for most of the ocean waste. However, polyurethane accounts for less than 2%. It lasts much longer than thermoplastics which means products made from this are thrown away at a lower rate since they last longer.
It also doesn’t contain any chemicals that interfere with hormone systems, nor does it contribute to PH imbalances in soil and water. Furthermore, the microorganisms that are used to break down polyurethanes aren’t toxic to the environment.
In addition to this, the versatility of polyurethane means there are a multitude of ways to recycle polyurethane back into other products.
Due the abovementioned information about polyurethan, it can be concluded that polyurethane is a much more environmentally friendly plastic for companies to use in the production process of goods.
