In Australia, there is a requirement under the standard, for all shared areas adjacent to a dedicated parking space provided for the access and egress of people with a disability to be protected by a fixed bollard.
We recommend a fixed bollard to prevent the use of the shared area by other vehicles for parking, or during unloading. A fixed bollard also, importantly, provides physical protection for people with disabilities from other vehicles reversing or manoeuvring in a car park.
Visibility and Safety Around Shared Vehicle Parking Improves with Disability Blue Skinz Bollard Sleeves.
While the standard doesn’t exactly specify the type or size, it is common practice to install 140mm diameter by 1200mm high steel bollards. Typically, these have a galvanised finish which can become visually lost in a busy or congested car park.
At Traffic Safety Systems, for new installations we supply our 140mm surface mounted or in-ground ‘Gal-Plus’ bollards complete with Blue sleeve. For existing installs, we recommend our ‘Skinz’ sleeves that can be retro-fitted to 140mm diameter bollards.
