- City Councils - Plastic bollards are installed on car parks, public highways and verges. They can also be found on cycle lanes to prevent larger vehicles gaining access.
- Airports - Airports frequently use the delineator type or "traffic cylinder" type to guide traffic and improve safety.

Why Use Plastic Bollards
Compared to wood and steel bollards plastic bollards are low maintenance and lightweight. They are also cheaper to purchase, making them cheaper to replace should they get damaged.
Plastic bollards tend to be fitted with reflective sleeving to ensure that they can be seen in low light conditions. This makes them perfect for highway use.
They are cheap to transport, this is because plastic bollards are lighter in weight than steel and wood. This makes postage costs cheaper for you.
What Types Of Plastic Bollards Are There?

Parking bollards, especially the plastic type are placed in front of parking bays and to flex if a vehicle makes contact with them. This is ideal for multi-story parking areas and tighter parking structures.
