Hoop Bollards | BP, Northampton
A BP forecourt development has utilised the NAL Retention Socket System for the installation of all protective hoop bollards.
To coincide with the concrete slab work the Retention Sockets were also installed. While unused the sockets are sealed with pedestrian plugs, ready for the bollards to be installed at a later date.
Pouring concrete without the hoop bollards creates a large, unobstructed working space which simplifies the erection of the forecourt canopy. When all other forecourt work has finished the hoop bollards are simply dropped and secured into the Retention Sockets.
As the bollards are vulnerable to vehicular knockdowns, the Retention Socket makes replacing any damaged hoops quick and easy, completely cutting out the requirement for disruptive and expensive civils work.
