The Benefits of Wooden Bollards
With strong, sturdy and durable properties, timber bollards are a particularly effective solution for a variety of uses. They can be implemented around the border of buildings to create a boundary and add a level of protection to buildings to prevent any damage. The wooden design and neutral colouring makes timber bollards perfect for adding safety measures without compromising on the stunning architecture of a property.
Wooden bollards are also great as a road safety aid, being installed for the benefit of both pedestrians and motorists by clearly mapping out the flow of traffic. If there are poor traffic signals, crowded street corners or unsafe pedestrian crossings, this can cause safety concerns for pedestrians so the addition of timber bollards can add an extra safety measure where needed. Their installation can also be utilised to prevent vehicles from mounting the curb in areas where there is a lack of parking. Cars parking on the curb can not only restrict pavement access for pedestrians or block the road for larger vehicles, but it can cause danger to other vehicles driving on the road. By installing wooden bollards in notorious areas, any damage to cars, buildings or gardens can be minimised to prevent any accidents from occurring.
Whatever the nature of your need for timber bollards, their flexibility makes them a substantial option for various uses. By restricting access for vehicles who could cause either accidental of intentional damage, any costly repairs are avoided and human safety is improved.

Timber Bollards FAQs
Why are timber bollards a popular choice for park environments?
Park and country environments are predominantly open and uncluttered, therefore timber bollards will be experienced at a pedestrian level rather than be used for traffic control purposes. In these environments, bollards are more apparent to pedestrians and therefore need to be chosen correctly. Timber bollards are a great option because they use natural materials which tie in nicely with surrounding nature. They add interest as they offer boundaries between spaces. Most importantly, they are less visually intrusive - timber bollards offer a timeless elegance and being a natural material, ages gracefully.
Why are timber bollards used in urban areas?
Mostly, timber bollards are used in urban spaces to help mark boundaries. Their typical functions include:
- • Blocking streets, particularly entries to shopping districts or pedestrian ways.
- • Protecting pedestrians, especially at points where they could meet vehicles.
- • Building protection since there are many structures close to high traffic zones.
I like the natural look of timber bollards, but how can you improve their function at night?
While timber bollards offer a very attractive appearance that suits both urban and rural areas, the material may not be highly visible at night which can pose a problem, especially where traffic is a risk factor. To resolve this, you can use a simple addition of reflective features on the bollards. Consequently, their purpose at night is improved. On timber bollards reflective discs and plates can be set in machined recesses or simply surface mounted. Traffic regulation sign plates can also be readily attached.
How do you install timber bollards?
For most timber bollards, you will need to excavate holes to a depth of approx. 400mm x 300mm diameter and cast them into concrete. Concrete will ensure they are kept in place and last longer.
