Q.What is the difference between FlexBollard and FlexBollard XL?
FlexBollard has an impact resistant carbon steel torsion spring that provides 360° of flexibility allowing for a full range of movement. The square steel base measures 9" x 9". FlexBollard XL are very heavy duty flexible bollards that feature a galvanized steel base measuring 8" x 8" and 3/8" in thickness. There is also an upper post stabilizer with concealed 5/16" thick steel spring that offers long-term weatherability, while keeping the unit firmly anchored to the ground.
Q.What is the significance of reflective strips on the FlexBollards?
The reflective strips enhance the visibility of the parking bollard and make it even more conspicuous. The flexible parking bollard comes with two parallel strips of colored 3M Reflective Tape for exceptional day and nighttime visibility — a safety feature for vehicles preventing unnecessary collisions or damages. You can select the color of the parallel 3M reflective strips on top of each bollard. Choose from white, yellow, orange, red, and blue.
Q.What are these Flexible Bollards made of?
Flexible Bollards have a cover or sleeve which is made from extremely resilient and durable, UV resistant, high density polyethylene (HDPE plastic). This flexible part doesn’t damage the vehicle or the bollard during a collision. The heavy duty plastic cover encases a metal post which is attached to a steel base plate with a reboundable spring.
Q.Are FlexBollards ideal for Concrete surfaces?
We offer three models of FlexBollard for concrete, natural ground, and asphalt surfaces. All three models include necessary hardware to mount the bollard assembly. The concrete model comes with zinc coated steel hex bolts with a Loctite threadlocker coated tip.
Q.Is professional help required to install FlexBollards?
You can easily mount FlexBollards in a variety of surfaces without any professional help. We provide all the necessary mounting hardware to install FlexBollards in asphalt, concrete, and natural ground, respectively. You can do it all by yourself. Anchor the bollard to the ground using the supplied hardware. The Asphalt models come with zinc coated lag bolts, metal washers, and a set of receiver plugs. Concrete models come with zinc coated steel hex bolts with a Loctite threadlocker coated tip while the Natural Ground model comes with a rugged 18 inch black powder coated steel anchor spike.
Q.What sort of maintenance is required for these flexible parking bollards?
FlexBollards literally eliminate replacement costs. A normal steel post would bend and break when struck by a vehicle. On top of that, a collapsed signpost could lead to pedestrian injuries by becoming a trip and fall hazard. However, FlexBollards are totally maintenance-free and do not cause any such hazard. Retractable bollards can be taken down in under a few minutes, allowing for temporary perimeter security.
Q.Do you offer FlexBollard with signposts as well?
Yes, FlexBollards are offered with and without signposts. The 52 inch Flexible Bollard comes with an 8 feet galvanized steel 1-5/8" round signpost that is corrosion resistant. Even the FlexBollard XL model comes with an 8 feet or a 9 feet signpost. The galvanized steel 2-3/8" round signpost extends from the base through the center of the bollard.

Flexable Bollards review
This is my second order, of many more I'm sure. I started installing these at my locations 2 yrs ago and they are virtually maintenance free. They are also extremely easy to install. Not a bad thing I could say about them.
