Stanchions and bollards are not terms that people hear every day, but they are important; once you start looking for stanchions and bollards, you’ll be surprised how often you see them!
Stanchions: Supporting Weight and Objects
Stanchions are sturdy, upright poles that support another object. These can be the posts holding velvet ropes at formal events, iron bars in windows, or any similar metal support, like poles for boat ropes by waterfronts, the headrest supports in a car’s seat, goalposts for sports, and standing poles on subways and buses. There are countless stanchions that we use every day without even thinking about it.
Bollards: Defining Traffic and Pedestrians
Bollards can be either iron or wooden posts that are primarily used at waterfronts, allowing sailors to securely tie their boats to the dock. There are also traffic bollards that limit how many cars can pass through an area or dictate whether a street is for pedestrians only. Bollards can be either portable or temporary. Engineers make illuminated bollards, bell bollards, removable bollards, rising bollards, flexible bollards, racing bollards, protective bollards, and more. These are useful for parks, playgrounds, trails, landscapes, bicycle lanes, malls, and other structures where traffic and pedestrians mingle. As you can see, bollards are everywhere!
