Manual parking bollards are collapsible as needed, and offer all the versatility of coming and going in and out of your designated parking bay at a very affordable price point.

Unlike with automatic bollards, drivers will need to step out of their vehicles to operate their manual parking bollard by way of a key and lock system.

That said, the simplicity of these manual bollards makes them a highly affordable choice, whether you are an individual who needs a parking bollard to safeguard their parking spot outside a residential address or place of work, or whether you operate on a more commercial scale and wish to cost-effectively implement a bulk order of bollards.

For even further savings, thatsMyspot.com.au offers discounts on any bulk orders, which can be keyed alike for effortless accessibility.

You and whoever else requires access to the parking area need only download the app and control the collapse of the automatic parking bollard directly from your smartphone – especially convenient if multiple people require frequent usage.
