SideWALK – Shallow-Foundation Bollards

SideWALK® Shallow-Foundation Bollards

The SideWALK® Shallow-Foundation Bollards range is a practical solution for downtown streetscapes and areas where standard depth excavation is not an option.


Shallow Bollards


These bollards carry an ASTM C40 to M50 crash rating, giving your facility the security it needs while also having decorative options to enhance your perimeter aesthetics. The SideWALK® shallow-mounted bollards were specifically developed to overcome the installation challenges commonly found in urban environments where underground infrastructure and utilities prevent deeper excavation.

Shallow Foundation

The SideWALK® Shallow-Foundation Bollards Series was developed to overcome installation challenges associated with urban environments. Standard crash-rated bollards typically require foundation depths of up to three feet or more to achieve desired crash ratings. In major metropolitan cities where the area under the pavement and streets are crowded with utilities and other infrastructure, a four foot foundation is virtually impossible.

Flexible Installation

The SideWALK® Shallow-Foundation Bollards Series consists of individual bollards that are easy to install even when the terrain necessitates each of the bollards to change slope and grade. This is a unique design for shallow-foundation, crash-rated bollards as all other manufacturers use a sled design comprising less flexible bollard sets. This allows bollard installation around typical obstructions.

Pedestrian Friendly

The main benefit of choosing SideWALK® Shallow-Foundation Bollards to create a stand-off is the ability to restrict vehicular access without obstructing pedestrian access. SideWALK® bollards are designed to meet ADA spacing requirements while maintaining the site-specific crash rating.

Decorative Designs

The SideWALK® series stands alone in the industry, with its wide range of aesthetically-pleasing options. The most common aluminum styles can be powder coated to a range of colors and textures including lighting and reflective safety stripes. The stainless steel, stone, and resin options can add architectural decor to your facility.
