Timber bollards

Timber bollards have emerged as a key element in urban and rural projects, combining functionality and natural aesthetics with a commitment to sustainable specification practices.

Their natural aesthetic, versatility, and sustainability make them more than just physical barriers. Timber bollards seamlessly blend into various landscapes, from historic city centres to modern commercial developments, enhancing the overall look and feel while providing necessary safety measures.

For sub-contractors working on commercial, residential, or infrastructure projects that have a requirement for bollards, timber bollards represent a popular choice.

Benefits of timber bollards for your project

Whether you are looking for classic designs or something more contemporary, our timber bollards are crafted to meet the highest standards of quality and sustainability.

Improved safety for pedestrians and buildings - Safety and security are often the primary reasons for specifying bollards within an urban or rural area.

Timber bollards offer a practical and functional option for sub-contractors where they offer robust protection to nearby pedestrians or buildings/infrastructure.

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.

Increased aesthetics and visual appeal - Timber bollards add a touch of warmth and natural beauty to urban landscapes, complementing a variety of architectural styles, whether you are working on an urban regeneration project or a rural project.

Sub-contractors often struggle with the challenge of finding street furniture that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. This is where timber bollards present a solution.

We offer a diverse range of designs available, you can choose from a more traditional bollard such as our Timber Bollard, or for more of a more modern design the Sway Flow Illuminated Bollard is a popular option.

Both bollards above, as well as the rest of our range of timber bollards, can be customised to suit your project requirements.

For example, the Timber Bollard can be selected in either a hardwood or softwood option, has three different styles of top (flat top, chamfered top, or 4-way weathered top), and you can choose whether to specify with recessed grooves or reflective banding.

This ensures you can select exactly the right style to suit your project’s aesthetics.

Incredibly robust and reliable - With strong, sturdy, and durable properties, timber bollards are a particularly effective solution for urban or rural project environments.

Particularly when you select a timber bollard made from a hardwood source (contact our team here at Street Furniture Direct to discuss hardwood and softwood options), it offers a structurally strong bollard option that not only offers strength but is durable and will stand the test of time.

Hardwood trees grow slower than softwood trees, and as a result, their timber is denser and stronger, and usually a more complex structure.

The Stratton Single Illuminated Timber Bollard is a popular choice among sub-contractors and specialist landscaping contractors. You can select a softwood (larch) or hardwood option (oak) as well as an optional coat of Danish Oil for added durability, it gives you confidence with a strong, aesthetically pleasing timber bollard that also provides energy-efficient LED lighting, making it suitable for rural park areas or urban car parks.

Easy to install - Our range of timber bollards are easy to install for sub-contractors. Most of the range is root fixed, where you only need to dig a shallow hole and fill with cement with the bollard in place.

The Tectona Teak Wood and Brass Bollard is surface mounted, where you simply fix the bollard’s mounting place onto the surface floor with screws.

Cost effective options - Considering the lifespan of timber (when treated appropriately) 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 alternative materials, the longevity and reduced maintenance costs make it a cost-effective choice over time.

Improved sustainability and green credentials - Our range of timber bollards are manufactured from renewable resources and are biodegradable, making them a sustainable choice for urban spaces.

They are sourced and made from natural softwood and hardwood trees, and are recyclable at the end of their useful lifecycle. After the wood is recycled, large amounts are put back into circulation for further construction uses.

Timber bollards offer a low embodied carbon material option, which aligns with main contractors and architects whose projects are working towards the UK Government’s Net Zero Carbon targets by 2050.
