SAFEGUARDING PEOPLE AND PROPERTY
From the Las Vegas Strip to Ground Zero in New York City, security bollards designed by Wright Engineers keep pedestrians and buildings safe from errant vehicles. Unlike some other barriers, bollards prevent vehicle access while still allowing pedestrians to pass freely. Bollards are steel posts anchored in a specially reinforced foundation and are designed and tested to stop a moving vehicle. In addition to providing a protective barrier, bollards can also direct traffic and add to the aesthetics of a site. Wright Engineers is proud to contribute to public safety by providing structural engineering for thousands of bollards from coast to coast.
