Cast iron bollards are an important factor in urban environments across the UK, defining pedestrian areas, protecting structures, and ensuring safety.

For sub-contractors working on urban regeneration projects, commercial projects that require bollards for car park areas, or any other project that has a requirement for bollards, cast iron bollards represent a popular choice due to their aesthetic appeal, functionality, and sustainability benefits.

Benefits of cast iron bollards

Improved safety and security - Cast iron bollards are incredibly useful in improving the security of pedestrians, particularly within built-up areas such as university campuses, town or city centre areas, and other popular venues.

Their robust nature means they can withstand significant impact, making them an excellent choice for high-traffic urban areas.

They are generally preferred rather than long barriers or fences, as they can be carefully positioned to provide maximum security without too much of a visual impact on the local environment.

Incredibly robust and durable - Cast iron is an incredibly durable, long-lasting and, therefore, valuable material. The longevity of cast iron bollards will always far outweigh the initial investment cost, which is why sub-contractors across the UK favour cast iron as a suitable material.

When you install cast iron bollards, they require minimal maintenance and can weather the toughest environmental conditions, ensuring that urban spaces remain functional and beautiful for years to come.

Aesthetic appeal - The rustic, timeless appeal of cast iron adds character to urban areas. It complements both historical architecture and modern designs, giving sub-contractors a versatile material that enhances a project’s visual appeal.

Indeed, sub-contractors often struggle with the challenge of finding street furniture that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Cast iron bollards offer a solution. With diverse moulding capabilities, cast iron can be shaped into intricate designs or kept minimalistic, allowing for a range of styles.

The beauty of cast iron is that it is so adaptable. Thanks to its impressive strength and ability to be manipulated to suit specific designs, there are endless opportunities for its use.

Our range of cast iron bollards features intricate styling. The classic Manchester Cast Iron Bollard features a traditional design with subtle grooves. The Liverpool Cast Iron Bollard features a similarly traditional design but with more rounded and notable styling.

Both types of bollards are finished in black paint and you have the option to add reflective banding around the top, for added safety.

Improved sustainability - Cast iron, being a metal, is 100% recyclable, without any decline in its properties.

When a bollard has reached the end of its usable life, it can be melted down and repurposed, aligning perfectly with the UK’s Net Zero pledge and push towards a circular economy.

As well as general recyclability, cast iron also has another benefit with regards to sustainability. This is the fact it doesn’t rust in the normal way – it slowly oxidises.

As well as making the metal very long lasting, this gives off carbon-based ashes which are beneficial to our environment because they encourage plant growth. This is a great benefit in reducing carbon footprints of a project and notably helps to reduce harmful greenhouse gases. 

Cost effective options - Considering the lifespan of cast iron and its minimal maintenance requirements, these bollards offer exceptional value for money for sub-contractors responsible for sourcing street furniture.

While the initial investment might be higher than some alternatives, the longevity and reduced maintenance costs make it a cost-effective choice over time.
