Indeed, this is due to their function, distinctive, to delineate every space but, especially, to physically protect pedestrian. Urban bollards and urban posts are then elements which we can no longer do without them and are an integral part of the landscape.
We identify bollards and posts through their respective shapes and heights. While the bollard is high and thin, the post is more massive and smaller. Furthermore, a decree relative to accessibility standard defined their respective dimensions. In the way that they have a particular function, these equipments are submitted to a regulation which is just as much. Generally, the goal implies their visibility. It is then in this way that we have thought and conceived our product.
The played role by urban bollard and post is essential. Technically speaking, they help to distinguish and allow the readibility of public spaces.

Metal bollards and posts
We are aware of the importance of visual consistency. Indeed, it allow to better integrate with street furniture in public space.

It contains, for example, tree grates, cycle racks, bins and barriers.
If several materials are possible, ATECH takes part of realized them in metal. Indeed, we value strenght and resistance to cope with shocks as essential. Painted steel, corten or stainless steel: you have the choice! Classical post form with bowl top cap, longilineal and design or else original and unexpected laser cut, you will fin what suits you. In terms of maintenance, of ageing and lifespan, that are precisely these materials which gather the needed requirements.
To choose the ideal model, here are some directions. First of all, the objective creteria allow to select the model according to the budget or the maintenance. It should also be noted to integrate the installation and the frequency of the bollards. The subjective criteria, more lie on tastes and the global design of the equipments. In conclusion, it is the completeness of these elements that should be considered to choose your model.
