Security bollards are a great addition to your security portfolio. Whether fixed, manual or automatic, they allow you to control access to specific areas in and around your building. Automatic rising bollards are an increasingly common sight in the UK as security technology and culture has developed. From schools to shopping centres, government buildings to palaces, bollards are a common feature of modern-day society.
Remember that access control doesn’t have to be limited to obvious access points such as doors and windows; it can also encompass the regulation and restriction of access to roads or walkways people use to reach your premises.
Incorporating bollards can provide a huge boost to your building’s physical security, by allowing you to limit and control unauthorised vehicle and personnel movement, whether at a distance from your premises, or in the immediate area.
Silver Group can supply you with a range of bollards, including fixed and retractable.

Automatic Rising Bollards Enquiry
A familiar site in our towns and cities for many years, fixed bollards perform a variety of functions. In urbanised areas, they protect pedestrians and shop fronts from road traffic; they provide a clear, visual boundary between footpaths and roads helping to prevent unnecessary accidents or deliberate attacks by those intent on committing crime and they can be used to light up pathways.
Our fixed bollards can be manufactured in galvanized steel and in which case, would be crash-resistant at speeds up to 50mph. If digging full foundations suitable for retractable bollards is not an option, we would wholeheartedly recommend fixed bollards.
Retractable or rising bollards
As with fixed bollards, retractable bollards are ideal for preventing accidental or deliberate vehicle collision with physical assets such as walls, windows and doors. They effectively limit vehicle proximity with your building and manage pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
Retractable bollards fit to roads or pavements and rise up out of the ground using electronics and hydraulic systems. This makes them well-suited to quick response situations, where you are able to alter an access path immediately according to the context.
Silver Group provides a range of retractable bollards, each designed for different needs. You can choose from a variety of access control options including:
- Access card
- Radio control
- Push button
- Induction loop
As the name suggests, neither manual nor fully automatic, semi-automatic bollards are perfect for situations where power is not available, either through lack of infrastructure or the position of your bollards. These bollards use a gas spring mechanism which, when released, raises the bollard from its retracted position. They are suitable in similar scenarios to fully automatic bollards, but provide a back-up option when power cannot be guaranteed.
Similar in function to semi-automatic bollards, lift-assisted bollards offer a more cost-effective solution. They are ideal for low-risk scenarios where access control is still required such as driveways and private parking areas. The integrated gas mechanism allows the user to raise the bollards with minimal effort required.
Manual telescopic bollards
Also perfect for office buildings and parking spaces, manual telescopic bollards offer DIY access control at a price that’s truly affordable. Choose from fold-down posts to more heavy duty telescopic posts, all available with secure, integrated locking mechanisms.
