Parking Posts to Protect Pedestrian Areas
Parking posts can be used to deal with areas of a compound that are wholly off limits to vehicular traffic. These may include specific locations where foot traffic is necessary, such as the frontages of buildings or footpaths that allow for easy access and egress to buildings. Sadly, signs aren't a very good deterrent for some drivers since it's possible for them to miss the signage. A physical presence like that presented by parking posts become necessary. A physical manifestation such as this serves as a good way to provide something that hinders the movement of vehicles through areas where they are not allowed.
Using Traffic Posts Effectively
Although traffic posts are a good deterrent, using them effectively usually requires understanding which type of post of traffic barrier works well in which location. Fixed parking posts and parking bollards serve as a good way to permanently block traffic to a location. These are useful in a number of situations where access is going to be permanently denied to vehicles such as in heavy foot-traffic areas such as walkways or footpaths.
Temporary blocking of locations is also a major concern, especially in modern parking lots and bays. In order to facilitate this, there are a number of different ways a company may approach this type of thing. The installation of a folding barrier serves as a deterrent to traffic that can be raised and lowered to indicate whether traffic is allowed or disallowed at any particular time. The used of chains in combination with either permanent or temporary posts can also be used. This is a much more economic measure towards ensuring that vehicles are kept out of unwanted areas when the need arises.
Vehicle Flow Management
Traffic posts and fixtures serve as a very cost effective measure to manage the movement and parking of vehicles within a commercial or industrial compound. In many cases these fixtures can be used to enforce safety regulations by denying entry to vehicles in areas where they may be at risk.
