Parking Bollards for Every Problem: Do Any of These “Bad Parkers” Sound Familiar To You?

Bad parkers

We frequently get asked this question.

What are the different types of bollards available and in what situation would you choose them?

There are as many different types of parking bollards as there are parking problems. To illustrate this, we’ve placed the different types of bollards into some of the various “bad parker” scenarios they may be best suited to.

After all, while bad drivers get a lot of publicity, does anyone really consider the fact that these same people have to park sometime? Where do they go? Who do they terrorise then?

The Bad Parker: The Opportunist

Hawk BirdThey couldn’t help themselves – they told themselves they would be quick enough that no one would be the wiser they had blocked your parking spot. They are the opportunist, and they spring up outside homes, places of work, business parks, commercial parking lots, you name it, to claim your personal parking bay.


The Parking Solution: An Automatic Parking Bollard

Automatic parking bollards offer peace of mind from unauthorised parking or traffic flow, as well as collapsing for ease of access at the click of a button. There are two convenient types of automatic parking bollards to choose from. The first is remote-control parking bollards, which rise and fall at the push of a button on the supplied remote controls. The second is smartphone-operated bollards, which increase convenience even further by requiring nothing but your smartphone to operate. You and whomever else requires access to the parking area need only download the free app and control the collapse of the automatic parking bollard directly from your device, which is especially convenient if multiple people require frequent usage of the parking bay. Regain control over who gets to use your parking space.
