STEEL PIPE BOLLARDS
The purpose of most bollards is to prevent vehicular intrusion beyond the point at which they are installed. By far the most typical and least expensive bollard is a steel pipe bollard, or pipe guard, usually 6 5/8 inches in diameter, buried 2 or 3 feet in ground, and extending 4 feet above ground. The steel pipe bollard is usually surrounded by a 16 inch to 3 foot wide concrete footing with the interior of the steel pipe also being filled with concrete. If the bollard is to be surrounded by a sidewalk, the footing usually can be smaller.
